Sylvain Speculoos 100gr Cookies
When you ask a member of the Speculoos family for the time, they’ll offer you their watch. Their birthday parties are extremely popular because every guest goes in with a small present and comes out with a big one. Generosity is also the most accurate way to describe the taste of their legendary cookies. Interesting fact: in their family tree there is mention of a certain Nicolas del Speculas, a Spaniard who was later declared a Saint. Coincidence?

Our workshop is located in Brussels, at the crossing of the canal and the Senne river, where we create little indulgences full of taste in the true Belgian tradition.
We hear more and more people talking about “gluten-free”. But what exactly is gluten?
Gluten is a protein found in all bread flours such as wheat, rye, barley, kamut, etc.. Gluten is a fundamental element in bakery. It gives elasticity and suppleness to pasta, allows breads to acquire volume and softness.
But gluten can also slow the absorption of nutrients, including iron, calcium and vitamins. For those intolerant or allergic or suffering of the celiac disease, it can even result in very significant health problems, such as destruction of the intestinal wall.
All of our products are certified gluten-free.
