Several weeks ago, while buzzing through a Trader Joe's near my mom's house, on a total whim we picked up a jar of 'Speculoos Cookie & Cocoa Swirl'.
After buying it(wrong order!) I found out the Speculoos is a type of shortbread cookie, and that in Europe it is available in a spread form. So...shortbread and chocolate swirl. Even after the fact, that sounds pretty okay...but with no immediate need for it, it went out into the garage.
Until I came home from work today. It was not a good day...and I can't even really say why. Oh...not for security or anything....it's just...not good. Lacking in satisfaction and fulfillment. Just kind of a pity party type of day. SO...I went home and opened up this bad boy. I guess on one hand it's a step-up....in years back after a day like this, I would have popped open a beer or three, or hit a fast food drive-through(yeah, I'm an emotional eater).
I was totally unprepared for the party in my mouth that was going to come out of this jar. In fact, as I put a second spoonful in my mouth, there was only one way I could describe it.
