What Is Cookie Butter?
If you’re not already in the know, cookie butter only made its way to the U.S. in 2011, but Europeans have been enjoying it for much longer. (Lotus Bakeries is based in Belgium.) Made from ground-up Speculoos cookies, which have a taste reminiscent of gingerbread, it’s no surprise these aromatic baked goods are a favorite around the world.
What Flavors Can We Get?
Biscoff ice cream is studded with cookie bits and swirled with cookie butter. Then, to take their offerings beyond the Original flavor, Lotus Bakeries adds one of these unique flavors to the pint:
- Chocolate Brownie
- Salted Caramel
- Belgian Chocolate Chip
- Blueberry Cheesecake
There Are Bars, Too
As for the bars, which first arrived in the U.K. earlier this year, original cookie butter ice cream is dipped in a layer of cookie butter before being dipped again in a layer of Belgian chocolate.
The wait is finally over…😉

Where Can We Find Them?
Lucky shoppers at Safeway and Albertsons chains in California, Oregon, Idaho and Arizona will be the first to pick up a pint, with more coming in late summer and beyond. The bars aren’t scheduled to roll out until October, but definitely sound worth the wait.
