Are you in the 50% that’s heard of Cookie Butter or the 50% who hasn’t heard of Cookie Butter? Well, either way, you will soon know all about Cookie Butter.


Peanut Butter is made from Peanuts, Almond Butter is made from Almonds. So what is Cookie Butter made from? Cookies! Right!


The original Cookie Butter is made from Speculoos, a gingersnap sort of cookie. The first time I ate it, I was hooked. I think you’re supposed to spread it on toast, or bagels or eat it with pretzels, but I just used a spoon. Smooth, sweet, and tasty. What’s not to love? Apparently I’m not the only one who loves it. I got a text one day from a friend. She said, “sadly, my jar of cookie butter only lasted 3 days!”


So whether you’ve tried Cookie Butter (and want more) or haven’t tried Cookie Butter, it’s brand new here at The Country Cupboard. We have two flavors:  Original (Gingersnap) or Chocolate Chip. Both are so good! You can use pretzels or toast if you’d like, but a spoon works just fine for me.


Find the Cookie Butter in the freezer section.


For those of you celebrating Independence Day or if you want to be Patriotic, we have Red, White and Blue Frosted Pretzels, Sprinkles, Gummi Stars, and Gummi Bears. Also check out the festive Spinach Salad recipe below.


We will be closed Wednesday July 4th.
