Biscoff European Cookie Spreadクッキーの「ビスコフ」が入ったスプレッド

My husband found this Biscoff cookie spread while he's looking for some peanuts butter for me in the states.

There're 2 kinds, according to him, but I got crunchy one, not the smooth spread.
I started wondering how they created this spread.

On the website, there's an interesting story how they invented this.
"Biscoff Spread was first introduced to the states in 2011.
A Belgian TV show called 'De Bedenkers (the Inventors)' was the origin of this spread.
Els Scheppers, a culinary enthusiast, created a recipe that converted Lotus Speculoos cookies which is known as Biscoff Cookies into a savory, creamy spread."

Actually there's an image and a line that this spread is made from real Biscoff cookies.

As a proof, 65% of the ingredients of this spread is Biscoff.

Also, there's a competition how to make the cookie into spread.
"Scheppers’ idea made a finalist in the competition and Biscoff contacted Els and worked together to perfect her inspired creation."

I wonder why I didn't get a chance to know this product existed till last month!

One morning, I decided to put this on a toast.
The lid says "Lotus" which might be less known to compare with Biscoff.

Taking off the yellow cover didn't bring any flavor as there's another lid on the jar itself.
After peeling off a sliver paper cover, familiar and sweet flavor came out.
First, the surface looked smooth but I could see some dots inside.
And when I scooped some, I could feel crunchiness via a knife.
I wanted to put a lot of Biscoff cookie spread all over my homemade banana bread.
It's hard to see the chunks but fine and small cookies were contained in the cream.
Needless to say, it totally tasted like Biscoff cookies.
It's a little bit weird to have smooth spread which has Biscoff flavor on a slice of bread since I know the actual cookies.

On the jar, there's another way to enjoy this spread and it's with apples.
And of course, straight from the jar!

I'd love to make PB&J with this Biscoff spread.
This could be similar to the peanut butter but I'm guessing as this one is really sweet, the sammie would be so sugary, but I still wanna try.

The calories are high but my theory is "Tasty things have high calories" so I don't really care and I just enjoy this jar of paradise.
