In England, people usually have cereal for breakfast. One day, K's mom asked me if I'll like to have toast for a change. "What spread will you like with your toast? We've got jam, peanut butter, K's favorite white chocolate spread..." White chocolate spread? That's something I haven't heard of before... it doesn't take a genius to figure out which one I chose!
All it took was just one bite, and I was in love- the combination of the silky, sweet white chocolate with the slightly salty, fragrant butter was simply heavenly! I polished off all four pieces of toast before K finished her bowl of cereal... Seeing how much I liked the spread, K's mom gave me a bottle of it to take home. Hooray (:
Expectedly saccharine sweet, white chocolate spread, though absolutely delicious, is probably not something you'll want to eat large spoonfuls of straight out of the jar (unlike Nutella heheh). Cliché as it may sound, it is hence best enjoyed in small amounts, thinly spread over generously buttered toast.
Unfortunately, I doubt that it's possible to find white chocolate spread in the shops in Singapore. I'll be so sad when I finish my treasured bottle of spread! That's when Internet shopping saves the day...I've compiled a list of all the white chocolate spreads I could find on the Internet for those who want to give it a try!
