Have you ever had Biscoff Cookies? I love them. There is just something so satisfying about these cookies. They are sweet, without being over sweet. They are light and crispy with a caramel and a touch of cinnamon flavor. I first was introduced to them on a flight. I think that the first time that I had them was on a Delta flight. I'm not sure if it was my spring break in Arizona, or a trip to Disney, or sometime later, I just remember loving those cookies the very first time that I had them.

I always wondered if I could get them somewhere other than on a plane. I would always try to keep the wrapper, but by the time that I got around to looking them up, I had lost the wrapper.

Then, on my most recent flight, for business, on the trip to my destination they served the cookies and when I asked, I was able to get a second pack. Then, unfortunately, on the return flight, they had stopped the serving of compliment items and only were offering snacks for sale. I asked about whether I could purchase the cookies, but was told that they were not part of their "snack packs." I had been looking forward to having them as a snack and was so bummed to learn that I wasn't going to be able to get one.

That made me start to wonder if I would have the chance to have them again. So, I was glad to learn that I can actually order them online through I learned that they are made by Lotus Bakeries, based in Belgium with offices in North America. Their product is available online and also at some retailers.

I learned that not only do they have those cookies that I have come to love while flying, but they also offer a spread that is made with the Biscoff Cookies. When I first tried it, I wasn't sure what to expect. Wow! It tastes just like the cookies, only in a smooth, creamy spread. I haven't actually spread it on anything, choosing instead to have a small spoonful at a time instead. I'm thinking that adding it to cream cheese to make a frosting could be pretty tasty or spreading it on vanilla wafers.

You can find the cookies and the spread online, or find a retail location on their site.

No compensation was received for this post. Lotus Bakeries sent me a complimentary jar of the spread and some cookies for my family to try and to share my experience. All opinions expressed are my own.
