Walkers Shortbread - Cookies Review and Giveaway

I received products for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.


Walkers Shortbread was founded in 1898 and is still a family-owned and managed company. They offer a wide range of traditional shortbread, cookies, cakes, oatcakes and puddings. All their products are baked in the villages of Aberlour and Elgin in the Scottish Highlands, and contain no artificial flavorings, colorings or additives. The Walkers family continues to operate its original shop in Aberlour, on the High Street.

Summer is meant for spending time in the sun, road trips and just enjoying the outdoors. Walkers Shortbread makes for the ideal addition to your packing list: The “World’s Finest Shortbread” comes in mini, re-sealable packs, perfect for on-the-go—especially when you have hungry kids in tow.

The shortbread has a light buttery taste with the right amount of crunch.  Walkers Shortbread is available in tins, cartons, mini bags, and snack packs.  I've tried several of their varieties and they're all oh-so-good.

Made with just four simple-all natural ingredients (flour, butter, sugar and salt), Walkers Shortbread Mini Fingers are rectangular and made to be bite-size.  They have a light buttery taste with the right amount of crunch.  The bag they come in is re-sealable to retain freshness.   Walkers Shortbread Mini Fingers are so simple, yet so absolutely delicious. They're tasteful and have the right amount of sweetness. 
Although my family has no gluten or dietary restrictions, we still really enjoyed the Gluten Free Shortbreads, both the ones with and without chocolate chips.  The Gluten Free Shortbreads contain the same butter and sugar content as the regular shortbreads, but the wheat flour is replaced by a blend of rice flour, maize flour, and potato starch.  They have a light, airy texture and satisfy the sweet tooth.
 
I recently had an event in my home where several friends and family gathered.  Using the pre-packaged Gluten Free Shortbreads, I added packages of cookies to the party favor packs for my guests.  There were 24 packages to a box, with two cookies in a package.  The packaged cookies were perfect to add to the party favor boxes and they went over well.  Kids and adults alike snacked on the cookies during the party.  The cookies tasted fresh and were scrumptious.  

Win It!

One person will win Walkers Shortbread Mini Fingers and Gluten Free Portion Packs (both plain and chocolate chip).
