A large speculoos man is called a suitor. The story goes that a boy used to decorate a speculoos man with, for example, icing and nuts. He brought this to a girl to show her that he had feelings for her. If the doll was adopted by the girl, then the feelings were mutual. This is where the expression seducing someone comes from.
Speculoos spice melange consists of the following mix of spices: cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, ginger powder, cardamom and white pepper. However, different variations are possible with, for example, anise seed and coriander seed. Again, the quality of the spices is very important for the final taste. It's fun to put together your own favorite speculoos mixture yourself. If you would like to receive a super tasty speculoos mix ready-made from the best spices, please send me an email .
