Speculoos Rehab Fail

Speculoos Ice Cream

Most of you already know about my unhealthy Speculoos/Speculaas addiction and about the many Speculoos products that I have tried. I’ve written about them so many times that I am in danger of becoming Holland’s leading expert and reviewer of Speculoos products. I’m honestly surprised that none of you have tried to hold an intervention to put a stop to it.

But I guess you didn’t have to. My addiction came to an end last year when I tried the terrible Febo’s Speculooskroket. It broke me. I couldn’t even finish it. It was so bad that I turned my back on all things Speculoos related. They were all forever tainted. Speculoos would have to do something pretty amazing to win me back.

Something like…

Ben & Jerry’s Speculoos Ice Cream

Well played Speculoos… well played.

As soon as I heard about Ben & Jerry’s Speculoos Ice Cream I knew that my time free of Speculoos’ control was over. There was no point trying to avoid what I knew to be true; I had to try it. It seems that I was not the only one to reach this conclusion either. The entire population of Holland has been feverishly buying the stuff too. It took me two weeks to find a shop where it was not completely sold out. I even had to enlist the help of other people in my search. It was my wife who eventually tracked it down and presented me with a tub. She might be regretting this now though because (a) I didn’t let her have any and (b) I am once again addicted to the amazing taste that is Speculoos. The trauma of the speculooskroket has been forgotten. Long live Speculoos

    Oh wow. Speculoos ice cream? That sounds divine!

  4. It’s quite easy, eat…or attempt to…another kroket and it will put you off again!

    On another note I am dying to try this stuff but avoid the freezer isle!

    The real danger of becomming a speculoos-expert? Manufacturers might find out and start sending you new products to try. What can they think of next?

  6. I have to try this! (It will never beat cookie dough, obviously, but worth a bash!)

    I must start looking in Sainsburys. Mind you cornetto have just brought out a peanut butter cornetto and I can’t even find those.
    You introduced me to Speculoos some time ago and I couldn’t see what all the fuss was about. Then a few weeks ago I wanted something different to go on my crumpets and I found a jar of Speculoos in the cupboard, now I am hooked.

  8. No joke: a friend back in Miami makes her own ice creams. I suggested that she create a speculoos-based one and called it “Belgian Addiction.”

    It has become her most popular flavor. :P
