Speculoos - a cinnamon cookie in the shape of St-Nicolas traditionally eaten during Advent. In an increasingly secularized Belgium, this now oval cookie commonly accompagnies coffee.

Interesting how the mere sight of speculoos (rare in these parts) triggered utter distaste - must be a response to past binges...

This response is not unlike the one I experience at the smell of Jack Daniels.
