Where to Get Trader Joe's Speculoos Cookie Butter... NOW??

Where do you buy your cookie butter stash?

The clamor for speculoos spread or cookie butter is insane. And it doesn't seem to be on the verge of stopping anytime soon. It used to be that Trader Joe's Speculoos Cookie Butter was available at The Blue Kitchen with branches in Power Plant Mall and Shangri-La Plaza, but now, even they are always out of stock. People's current options are (1) to buy abroad, wherein you need a passport, a US visa and a plane ticket, just to get a hold of that green or red-labeled jar (and even there, they're almost always out of stock as well; the possible reason: people hoarding then sending them all to Manila, hehe!); and (2) to buy via online sites like LorenaAndLoreta, which takes about at least a month of waiting.

Surprisingly, I liked TJ's Cookie Butter. If you're a regular reader of my blog, you'd know that I don't have a sweet tooth. At first I was skeptical about tasting it when the hype came out, but when my cousin let me try it, I was hooked. Many people say that Lotus Biscoff Spread is better and way tastier, albeit I have yet to try it. Until then, this will suffice.

Imagine my glee when I came to know about a local shop (that's reasonably near my place!!) from a friend, which sells loads of Trader Joe's Speculoos Cookie Butter, both creamy and crunchy kind. Now, I have a feeling that I'll regret this the moment I find myself visiting that shop again, only to discover that it, too, can't handle the growing number of demand from cookie butter addicts. But, what am I a food blogger for if I can't share food finds with my fellow foodies, right?

So, where to get Trader Joe's Speculoos Cookie Butter now---not in a month; not after spending about P50,000 for a plane ticket---as in now?? (Well, you might want to consider about 30 minutes travel time if you're from Makati, longer if you're from the North.) Shortcrust, a cakeshop located in BF Homes, Parañaque, sells these gems. It's just along Aguirre Ave. right beside Academy One ballet school and Starbucks, near the Presentation of the Child Jesus Church. They're almost always well-stocked, but of course it would be great if you'd call them up first before going, especially if you're all the way from Quezon City or somewhere far North, just to be sure that you don't waste your time, toll and gas.

It's P450 a jar, pretty steep if you consider that it's just about P160 in the US, but (1) we're not in the US; and (2) people generally can't afford to go there on a regular basis, at least not as regular as their cookie butter craving dictates. It may also be more expensive than those sold over the internet, but it's your choice: pay about P350 plus P60 shipping fee totaling to P410, and wait for about a month before getting it, or pay P450 plus gas (and toll for those who live far enough), and get it now. Weigh whatever works better for you and go for it. Now let me go back to devouring my new bottle of TJ's Speculoos Crunchy Cookie Butter. :)

P.S.
In case you're a Lotus Biscoff Spread fan, you can still get your speculoos spread fix from LorenaAndLoreta!

Guia Obsum said...

Rowena, I know right!! :) Hopefully soon, I ordered from Lorena & Loreta, they said the stocks will be here by May, so that's any day now. I've been waiting for more than 3 months, haha! Excited! :)

Guia Obsum said...

Sure, no problem. Any foodie would do the same. :)

u8mypinkcookies said...

the biscoff is sooooo good!!

Guia Obsum said...

I'm getting more and more excited. Hope my order comes soon enough! :)

Joshua Torres said...

Manna in BF also sells them for P550

Guia Obsum said...

That's a hundred bucks more... but at least we have an alternative in case Shortcrust runs out of them. :)

michymichymoo said...

Hmm. It's still far from my place. But hopefully I'd get to try Speculoos, 'cause I haven't tried it yet.haha!

rftreyes said...

Ok. This is just far from me, but for the love (and craving) of Speculoos, I will go here.

And maybe sample some of the best foodie restaurants in that side of town :)

Guia Obsum said...

Don't forget to call first just to be sure. Don't want to waste toll and gas, although some restaurants this side of town are worth it. :)

Guia Obsum said...

Try, try, yum, yum! Haha! :)

I got a bottle of the crunchy cookie butter as a gift. It is very good, but I don't understand the hype over it. Is it because of the novelty of having to order it online or go on a quest to actually find a bottle in Manila? And if you do find one, it's all bragging rights on Facebook or Twitter. Gee... we Filipinos have become so shallow.

You will soon find a steady flow of Speculoos Cookie Butter from eshopping - please visit eshopping at www.eshopping.com.ph. I believe their first shipment will arrive in July. eshopping only sells products directly from the US. You can even request them what you want from the US since they ship from the US to the Philippines every week.

CCitizen said...

Here's the picture of the Original Belgian Speculoos Cookie Butter. According to eshopping they will even host a Speculoos challenge in Manila. Here's the picture.

I was able to find Lotus Biscoff Speculoos Spread in Healthy Options for only P375! I was even able to buy the creamy and crunchy variant. I'm so happy since I super love the crunchy variant! :)
