Bored with Bagels / Tired of Toast Option #4

Here's a shout out to my sister for tipping me off to Option #4 ~  Biscoff Spread.  If you are like me, you may have been tempted in the past to take a flight somewhere, anywhere, just to get a little package of the crispy, spicy Biscoff cookies.  Now, it's easy to find a package of Biscoff cookies at your neighborhood Walgreens, so there's no reason to pad your frequent flyer miles on meaningless flights just to get a cookie.  But what if you want to enjoy the unique and delicious flavor of Biscoff all day long?  What if you want to perk up your morning with the cinnamony flavor of Biscoff?  What if you are bored with bagels and tired of toast?  A cookie just won't do it, but Biscoff spread will.  Somehow, the magicians in Belgium have taken Biscoff cookies and made them into a creamy spread.  Yes, the spread is actually made from the original Biscoff cookies, but it has the smooth and creamy consistency of peanut butter.  Yummy at breakfast, or for dipping pretzels!  You can find it by the peanut butter at Meijer or Marsh.

Bored with Bagels / Tired of Toast Option #3

Still bored?  Still tired?  Maybe this will help....  Indulgence Cream Cheese Spread in the White Chocolate flavor.  It's new from Kraft / Philadelphia Cream Cheese and it's delicious.  I spread a thin coat of this rich and creamy spread over my brown sugar swirl bagel and it seemed like I was eating dessert for breakfast!  It also comes in several other flavors; both milk and dark chocolate, cinnamon and dulce de leche.

Bored with Bagels / Tired of Toast? Option #2

Still bored with bagels and tired of your toast?  You may want to try option #2.  Land O Lakes Cinnamon Sugar Butter Spread.  A blend of butter and canola oil, it spreads very easily.  And cinnamon and sugar?  What's not to like?  Delicious on bagels or toast, of course, and can't wait to try it on cooked carrots or squash.  But last night we had it with some warm pretzel rolls.... All I can say is: Mmmm!

Bored with Bagels / Tired of Toast? Option #1

Bored with Bagels, Tired of Toast?  Never again!  We recently tried a couple of new spreads and I can't wait to tell you about them.  I do love a slice of toasted Great Harvest wheat bread topped with a swish of whipped butter, with or without some raspberry jam, but lately I was feeling in a rut.  So I took a few moments in the dairy aisle a couple of weeks ago to check out some new options.  The first one is Twisted Butter Blueberry, Honey and Lemon Zest.  It's a flavor-infused premium butter for spreading and cooking.  You can see the pieces of real blueberry in the butter, and the lemon adds the perfect bit of tartness.  Twisted Butter comes is also available in a Cinnamon, Honey and Brown Sugar flavor and several savory options.
