Earlier today, when a colleague was offered a Walkers shortbread cookie, he turned it down – shockingly.
“I would love a shortbread cookie every hour on the hour, but I can’t afford to eat just one because I might eat the whole box,” he explained.
He speaks for many cookie-lovers who can’t get enough shortbread, especially this seasonal time of year. Walkers shortbread has been made in a “remote village” in Scotland since 1898, from a simple family recipe of butter, flour, sugar and salt.
The company has issued a line of special-edition Festive Shapes in stars and bells, Santas and Christmas trees. They’re in supermarkets, club stores and specialty stores while supplies last. Or order online here.
