Trader Joe's Speculoos Cookies
This may be the most famous Trader Joe's product that I had not yet sampled--except for the various forms of cookie butter, of course, which I'm deliberately avoiding for fear of clinical addiction.
I had read in several places that these are the same cookies that Delta Airlines serves on its flights, though without the logo. I believe it. They do indeed taste exactly the way I remember those snacks.
They're good. I can eat a lot of them in a sitting and not feel tired of them. They're about as simple as cookies can be: wheat flour, sugar, vegetable oil, "sugar candy syrup," baking soda, salt, cinnamon, lecithin. I have no complaints.
But I'm never going to love them the way I do some other TJ's cookies.
Will I buy it again?
Probably, once in a while, though I don't see it becoming a staple item for me.
