Lotus Lotus Biscoff Crunchy Biscuit Spread 380g
In Belgium, people developed a very particular & unique Belgian habit.
For decades, they put their favourite biscuit, Lotus Biscoff, on their bread! Some used the whole biscuit, some crumbled it, others dunked it in their drink first.
Delicious, but hardly practical. Until someone had a bright idea. Why not make a creamy spread of it? An enterprising Belgian mum created her own recipe and entered it in a competition for a TV show: The Inventors. And guess what? She won!
And afterwards, she has worked together with Lotus Bakeries to bring Lotus Biscoff spread to its smooth perfection.
Later, by popular demand, a version with crunchy bits was also developed.
The distinctive caramelised taste of Lotus Biscoff is appreciated by young and old all over the world. It’s the pride of everyone at Lotus Bakeries. And it inspires us to apply the same high standards of craftsmanship as when they were first made.
In 1932, a Belgian baker named Jan Boone Sr., creates a caramelised biscuit with nothing but natural ingredients. He names it Lotus, after the flower that symbolises purity.
In the 1950’s, baker Boone starts wrapping the biscuits individually. It’s eagerly snapped up by cafés and restaurants as the biscuit to be served with a coffee. It’s an instant hit because taste wise, coffee and the caramelised biscuit have complementary profiles. They boost each other’s flavour.
Through the years, Lotus Biscoff’s popularity spreads far beyond borders. Coffee lovers all over the world ask for a Lotus Biscoff with their latte or espresso. Unsurprisingly, the name Lotus Biscoff itself is a combination of ‘biscuit’ and ‘coffee’.
Today, Lotus Bakeries is still family-owned and based in its home town. The ingredients of Lotus Biscoff are as pure, the taste as unique and the biscuit as crunchy as ever. There are 6 billion biscuits a year coming out of our oven, which are savoured over 6 continents.
