Sweet on Trader Joe's Saturday: Cookies & Creme Cookie Butter

How about a little reprieve from the pumpkin reviews?  I hear there are people who don't enjoy pumpkin...these must be the same people who don't like kittens. ;)

Today, we review Trader Joe's Cookies & Creme Cookie Butter. 

You (hopefully) are familiar with the original Cookie Butter, which is a peanut butter-like spread made from Speculoos cookies.  This one is a chocolate and cream spread.  Trader Joe's describes it as "a sweet spread made from crushed cocoa biscuits and creme filling."  A 14.1 ounce jar costs $3.69.

A mom's (my) take: Unlike original Cookie Butter which has a pronounced flavor, I found this to be a little lacking.  Spread on a graham cracker, all I tasted was graham cracker.  On its own, I liked the crunchy bits in the chocolate portion, but didn't get a big flavor of either cocoa or cream.  This cookie butter isn't bad, just nondescript.
Overall rating: 3 of 5 stars

A teenager's (kiddo's) take: This cookie butter doesn't jump out at you; rather, you have to "search" for it. The flavor isn't very strong, and it takes some time before you realize what you're eating. However, when eaten by itself or when you are really trying to taste it, the flavor isn't bad, and adds a delicious touch to whatever you're eating it with.
