Any time I go into the ISA office in between classes, for a meeting or just for kicks, I greet everyone, and then head to the kitchen.
One of the beautiful perks of being an ISA student is this office, this kitchen, the free coffee in this kitchen, and a very special blue tin box in this kitchen. Inside this box are always speculoos. And I every time I go to ISA, I eat two of these addicting Belgian cookies.
They’re thin and crunchy — a biscuit cookie of sorts — with loads of cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg and ginger. They’re traditionally eaten around Christmas time, but why reserve such enjoyment solely for the holidays?
Nonsense, Belgians say! They’ll eat these cookies whenever they damn well please.
And then they’ll make them into an ice cream flavor!
And then they’ll make them into a nutella-like spread and eat it for breakfast!
And then American students will never want to leave! BUHAHAHA
UC Davis friends, real question: does World Market carry speculoos?
