I am usually behind the times so maybe you all have tried the Biscoff spread and it is old news??? Comes in a small jar like peanut butter. I have never tasted Nutella --- and I know some say it is good --- but this stuff along the same line as Nutella is unbelievable.

On toast. On bananas. On ice cream. On apples. On a spoon. In a shake. It is exactly the same flavor as those brownish tan cookies given on plane flights ---but in this form ---- OUTSTANDING.

Just thought I would share my 'find' with you. Made by LOTUS. Product of Belgium. I found it at Walmart. Peanut butter section. I don't know how many calories in peanut butter but this is 89 per tablespoon. The tablespoon goes a long way as a spread on crackers.

This cost me $6 and I thought that was high! It lasts tho because it just takes a wee bit and it spreads real easy ( unlike peanut butter)

Listen Kay, this stuff is addicting. I am not a 'foodie' kinda person. And, I'd rather have bread as opposed to sweets, so it took me by surprise ...maybe I'll try this on hawaiian bread...

Very disappointed in Nutella anymore, they are putting too much soy lecithin in it, too liquidy now
I found another hazelnut spread imported from Italy in Shoprite...(name escapes me right now) sooo good like Nutella used to be
I won't be able to try that Biscoff since it has wheat in it

Justin's Chocolate Hazelnut butter blend is good, more hazelnut tasting than chocolate
Peanut Butter&Co Dark Chocolate Dreams is really good too

Tracks - oh no! Sorry you didn't like. First and most ingredient is wheat flour and so not all the spread is fat ( and it has no animal anything in it ). Peanut butter has significantly more fat and more saturated fat and sodium too. It does have more nutritional value however. Is Nutella healthier since it has nuts? I have not tried that yet. Didn't Amazon give the ingredients so you could have checked it out? Anyway, wish I didn't like it. But, I have no worries since now I don't keep it in the house and at work (in a cardiac and pulmonary unit with dieticians and nurses and exercise physiologists!!) a jar will last approx 5 working days. I told the staff that next time it empties they will need to invest - I am tired of supporting their habit. I figure next time I will try the two Jen suggested. (But not yet as I have my physical end August.) Kay, I guess you lucked out!

no problem, mc. we can't all like everything. i did do some research on my peanut butter. i have to say that i like most foods as little processed as possible but i do not like fresh ground peanut butter. it's just too sticky. i buy Skippy Natural. it's about $5 a 26.5 oz jar and publix runs a BOGO on it fairly often.
so here's how the two stack up to each other.

Skippy Natural... Cookie Spread
calories 95 ... 89
fat 8 ... 6
sat. fat 1.75... 1
sodium 75... 33
carbs 3... 8
fiber 1... .1
protein 3.5... .05


to answer one of the above questions...i like nutella and i use it in place of a piece of candy. yes, the nuts make it a little more healthy but don't be fooled. it's not a "health" food. it's a treat, like candy or cake or anything else you're not supposed to eat!

i don't know why my post came out like it did but i'll try to fix it.

I think it would be good mixed with marshmallow fluff and some kind of fruit. I have never tasted marshmallow fluff --- I have however dreamed of it. Does anybody remember Bonamo Turkish Taffy? It came in chocolate, strawberry, banana and vanilla. The vanilla...so creamy...so vanilla-y...THAT is what I think marshmallow fluff must taste like...and if it does-- I can't take the chance of tasting it because Bonamo taffy is so addictive but thankfully not that available and it is expensive.

We were first introduced to Nutella twenty five years ago and wondered why it was a common component at the breakfast table in some countries. They smear baguette-style breads in France, Italy, Germany and Spain with the stuff. We grew up with more savory breakfasts...rustic breads, cheeses, smoked fish and raw vegetables. We had nannies when our children were young and they and their visiting families would always bring over lots of Nutella for us to enjoy. We didn't miss it from our trips to Europe so it most often ended up in the trash. They smeared it on everything. I like it on occasion for guilding easy desserts. Costco carries Nutella so it's no longer an extravagant import. There are parts of Europe noted for growing hazelnuts, the nut component of this spread. Hazelnuts are incredibly delicious but go rancid faster than most nuts. I would be happy to skip the Nutella and eat fresh roasted hazelnuts but those are like hen's teeth in this country.

I did not know Wally World had the stuff. A friend in CA told me about it through a recipe she made that used it in a cake recipe.
Well, I did not know where to find any for she bought it at Trader Joe's. We do not have those here and so I ordered it on line. It was a bit on the high size. I just did not tell my husband how much those little jars cost! He didn't ask and I didn't offer! I have them (2) up in the cabinet where I know where they are but haven't offered the news. LOL!

I really had to look for them, I almost missed where they had them stuck on the shelf. 2nd down from the top. And the packages aren't really big, so that makes them a little more difficult to spot too. Now, if they would just get the Biscoff spread...LOL

Our WM isn't "technically" a SuperCenter, it does not say that on the sign. But, it does have everything that the SuperCenter does (just not the Biscoff spread:>) Don't ask me why the signage doesn't designate this a SuperCenter. Probably to appease the city fathers...I don't know.

May buy a jar of each and let the work crew help me sample it:) I wasn't a big fan of Nutella and tend to buy peanut butter with reduced sugar content so having a lot of people sampling won't feel like I wasted my money on it.

Dmac, at the risk of going off topic, why not make your own peanut butter? Two jars on sale and a food processor = approximately two pints of sugar and salt free peanut butter. Under five dollars for two pints of freshly ground peanut butter is a bargain. If it doesn't meet your expectations of jarred butters you can always add salt and, for that matter, sugar. You will have a healthier product at a cheaper price.

I've thought about it:lol: I may give that a try--I've got one of those Ninja's that would probably do the trick. Good idea for me to play around with:)

I've thought about making my own ketchup too--saw someone on Diner's Drive Ins & Dives make one and it sounded good.

Oh, stumbled across a thread in Cooking (Food Processor question I believe) and a lady posted a recipe for a biscoff spread recipe (other cookie option for it was gingersnaps).

Dmac, I'm not really interested or informed re: the sweet stuff but if you are interested in instruction for ketchup or butters DM me. As for nut butters, such as peanut, it takes about five minutes and a processor to make a few months worth of butter.

If you don't like peanut butter or can't eat peanuts there is a new product out there called Sunbutter. It is ground sunflower seeds. Tastes pretty good if you are a sunflower seed fan.

Broke down and bought the Biscoff spread and tried it at work. It tastes OK to me--I've never had the cookies so to my tastebuds it reminds me of a cross between creamed graham crackers and really good shortbread cookies. It has a floury texture to it as well. Several of the coworkers loved it so the jar was cleaned out:lol:

Have you ever heard of, or tried a peanut butter & tomatoe sandwich?

I grew up on them & although it seems like a very strange combination---it works!!! Something about the acid of the tomatoe mixes well with the peanutbutter. Also, not all of the sugar from jellies or jams!

Heard of it but not brave enought to give it a go:lol: Of course, I'm a tomato freak and if I've got an in season, ripe and juicy tomato around me--more than likely it's getting sliced, salt & peppered and hoovered down:lol: My other go to tomato option is eat it like an apple with a little garlic salt (add as you eat:)

I think I've seen tomato and peanut butter in combo in Indian dishes so I'm sure it's a good balance.

no not that combo... I have heard of peanut butter and mayo... ewwww
my fav way of eating peanut butter is on a teaspoon --just me, the p. butter, and the spoon!

I am with you on the fresh tomato and the salt and pepper. On the rare occasion I run across one in the supermarket that SMELLS like a real tomato -- I am in heaven. I can grow them...but the deer ...the deer...

I have a big bag of almonds in the freezer, do you roast them first? They aren't raw, but roasting brings out more flavor...

Nutella and I go way back. A friend in highschool (I graduated in 1988 and this was probably sophomore year..you can do the math) had it at her house because her parents were european. I fell in love with it. Up until about 5 years ago, Nutella was only available in specialty stores. Now it is all over, and I agree that the formula is a little different. Not as spreadable...almost runny. Still tasty. I also have enjoyed cashew butter, almond butter and tahini, or sesame butter.
I will have to try Biscoff. I am feeling dangerous lately... so the risk of biscoff's taste rush and the possibility of addiction, well, it sounds right up my alley. ha ha.
The weird combos.. 15 years ago I would have been appalled by the idea of p-nut butter being the main ingredient in a chicken dish (thai ) that I love. I am guilty of enjoying the heck out of a p-nut butter bacon and honey sandwich on whole wheat toast. I blame Elvis for my love of p-nut butter, banana w/ honey,sunflower seeds and a few raisins if there are any in the cabinet.
Happy snackin'!

How can anything that is dessert plain on a spoon NOT be good with everything else. I bet PB bacon ice cream would be good.

Ok, you Biscoff peeps...are you aware that there is a Crunchy Biscoff spread too? My WM had both; I'm not a fool, I bought one of each. :>) This is the first that my WM has had the spread. I saw that they had the cookies about 6 months ago.

Oh, yeah...that crunchy stuff do taste good!!! LOL

This thread just popped up for me today and I was reminded of one of my favorites. Peanut butter and mayo. I haven't thought about it in years!!! Will have a slice for lunch, curled up with a book.

I found a honey jelly at Fresh Market with their label and the guy said going to phase out - so I bought all of it . Tastes exactly like honey in a jellied form.
