FOOD FINDS: Trader Joe's Fig Butter + Real Dr.

I admit I joined the biscoff and peanut butter craze several months back but I haven't blogged about them. Maybe its because almost every blogger and everyone I know have been raving about this biscoff, this speculoos, this choco peanute butter, etc. That is until this bottle arrived at my house.

Trade Joe's Fig Butter. At first, I was hesitant to try this because I don't know what to expect. Also, the color doesn't look appetizing (dark brown jelly). But when I did taste it, thanks to a very hot pandesal --- WOW. For me this is better than the biscoff et al craze. Not too sweet also. And it tasted like "fig." But then, I haven't seen a fresh fig nor tasted one before this amazing bottle of goodness.



I'm thinking of baking a sponge cake and then using the fig butter as filling or maybe bake some tart crust. But what I do know is that it tasted good with bread. I also saw some roast chicken recipes with fig jelly. Let's just pray that this bottle lasts till Christmas- haha.

Real Dr. Soda. Daughter's been crazy about Dr. Pepper even if we don't drink soda/ cola anymore. Blame it on the book that she read last summer. So once in a while, the "spoiler mummy" appears and indulge her wishes. Daughter said that she liked Dr. Pepper best but this soda's okay. I had a sip but I can't tell much about the difference. :P
