Friday finds

love Trader Joe’s, especially during the holiday season. There’s a magical, spirit-lifting air that settles in over their aisles of festively-packaged goods. Yesterday, while strolling blissfully through my local TJ’s, I noticed that they’d finally re-stocked their Speculoos cookie and cocoa swirl butter. I’d been dying to try this newest variant of their popular gingerbread spread, striped with Nutella-like cocoa hazelnut cream. In my eagerness, I bought two jars — but, in my defense, it’s almost always sold out because people (like me) hoard them! In any case, I may have to return the spare. For one thing, it’s super saccharine, even for a sweets addict like me. Secondly, I can’t justify its caloric content; it’s pure blood-sugar-spiking madness. Thirdly, and in spite of it all, the swirl is insanely addictive; I finished 1/3 of the jar in one sitting. Too much of a good thing…
