Product Description: Biscoff-flavored cooked butter from the Lotus brand, used (among other thing) on sandwiches in place of peanut butter. My wife purchased a jar of this while she was at Wal-mart a few days ago as a non-nut alternative for our oldest daughter's school lunches. I've been using it on her sandwiches for a couple days.
Review of Lotus Biscoff Cookie Butter
My wife picked up a jar of this for our daughter's lunches. Read to find out if it was worth the money.
I actually prefer packing a lunch for my oldest daughter rather than have her purchase her school's hot lunches on a regular basis. This is both because I want to make sure she's getting enough to eat and because school lunches, quite frankly, have gotten kind of pricey (it's cheaper for me to buy lunch items in bulk at Costco).
Of course, packing her so many lunches does have its challenges. In addition to trying to change things up enough to prevent her from getting bored with them, her school is very strict about certain types of foods, especially those containing nuts. This, of course, automatically eliminates peanut butter sandwiches, etc. and, because of that ban, we are always looking for some alternatives.
My wife happened to find something in this category a few days ago, when she was doing some shopping at Wal-mart and came across Lotus Biscoff Cookie Butter. And, so far, this has been a good purchase.
The biggest attraction to this product, of course was the fact it didn't contain nuts (or mint, something else that is banned from her school). This means I can use it as a replacement for anything I would normally use peanut butter for, such as sandwiches and crackers. And, according to my wife, it was about $2 less than some of the other products (such as the sunflower seed spread we purchased a few weeks ago), making it much easier to fit our budget.
As for the taste, there have not been any complaints. My daughter is somewhat picky when it comes to new foods and I wasn't sure if she would enjoy this or not. However, she says she loves it and thinks it tastes like an extra-sweet peanut butter spread. That, alone, makes it worth buying.

This was a good purchase that gives us yet another allergy-free alternative for my daughter's school lunches and, while I won't put it on every sandwich I make her, I do think it's a nice change-of-pace item to keep her lunches from getting boring.
