Cookienotti: The Verdict

February 21, 2015

It’s not addictive. I keep telling myself that. Imagine a flavor between gingerbread and cinnamon toast, over a subtle caramel base. Then imagine it, warm, spread on plain french toast or waffles…

My discovery of Cookienotti. At over $10 a jar, it better not be addictive.


Naughty Cookies? No, Cookienotti

January 6, 2015

How is a consumer products shopper supposed to keep up with the latest when there is no advertising of consumer products in his language? I hate it when I find out about a food that’s been at Trader Joe’s for 6 years.

TJ’s calls it Cookie Butter. A Dutch company calls it Cookienotti. What caught my eye was its main ingredient: cookies, specifically Speculoos. Of course I had to check the biscuit (cookie) aisle for Speculoos, because who knows what might happens if you spread a cookie on itself?

I had no interest in trying Cookienotti until I saw TJ’s sells something similar. I’m in.
