Our secret stash of airline cookies! Revealed!

If you’ve flown on a particular airline, then you’re probably familiar with the scarily yummy Biscoff cookies. And as a wife of a pilot who flies for said airline, I have to giggle every time someone tells me that they hoard them, mostly because we’ve got our own personal stash too. (Shhh.)

Well, now you don’t have to wait to take another fun-filled family flight in order to refill your stockpile, and our staff at CMP is more excited about it  than we should be.

You can snag the Biscoff Cookies in various sized packs at their website, find them at your local Walgreens, or think ahead to the holidays and purchase their fun cookie gift tubes,–great in part because 10% of the proceeds are donated to Teach for America.

Apparently, there are fan pages dedicated to these cookies, which are a nice balance of sweet and spice, and amazingly skilled at keeping my kids quiet when they start to get a bit rammy on the airplane. You wouldn’t know that if you tend to go for the pretzels or peanuts, but I do.

The gift of “airline cookies?” It’s kind of kitchy, kind of funny, and a whole lot of yummy. Trust me, when you serve them you’ll hear what I do when someone sees them in my cabinet: Is it me or are those cookies just really really good”

You can purchase Biscoff cookies at the Biscoff Gourmet site, shop through Delta SkyMiles, or… just get them free on your next flight.

    I spotted these at our local grocery store and wondered if they were any good (we’re fans of the LU Le Petit Beurre biscuits). Now I’ll have to go buy some!

    Hilarious! I JUST finished eating a few Biscoff and put them back in the cupboard for tomorrow when I saw this post. I have loved these forever. Publix grocery stores also carry them (I’m guessing Wegmans does too!). Love, love, love!

    Usually it seems to inconvenient and awkward to eat/drink (unless it’s booze) on a plane but I make an exception for these cookies – love them!

    Do you have the allergen statement off the back of those? Some airline I flew once had cookies that turned out surprisingly safe for my milk, egg, and peanut allergic son, but I could never remember their name. Those might be them. If so, they were yummy.

    I love that someone else loves these cookies! I almost cried with joy when I saw them at Walgreens. Another bonus: they’re vegan!

    As soon as I saw the cookie, I knew exactly what you were talking about! Thanks for the info :)

    I love Biscoff – they bring me back to my Belgium exchange student days. The only place I’ve ever seen them stateside is…Walgreen’s, in the cookie/cracker aisle. Some Walgreen’s corporate buyer must have a soft spot for them.

    Bakerella just featured these! Apparently they make a good cheesecake base.

    I love these cookies- I hoard them on flights! I fell in love with them last year and then randomly ran across them again at Wal-Mart of all places!

    Thank you!! My kids love these cookies almost as much as I do. I am ordering some right after I finish typing this.

    Okay, those Biscoff as you call them, are originally from Belgium, their real name is “Speculoos”, and it’s a national proud :) Come on over for a visit in Brussels, capital of Europe, and be sure to take some with you back home as you’ll left one of the most beautiful city of Belgium, located between France and Germany. Contact me if you want a personal tour while visiting.
    Worldy yours, JG
