Editor's Choice: Walkers Shortbread, Inc.

If, as they say, virtue is its own reward – sometimes cookies can be an added bonus. To explain: While straightening out a food cabinet last weekend, I found some treasures from the Sweets and Snacks Expo. One treat I discovered was a package of Shortbread Fingers from Walkers Shortbread, Inc. (

The cheery red and green plaid package greeted me like an old friend.  The shortbread inside had the great, melt in mouth rich taste that I remembered. With the weather getting colder here in the Midwest, the shortbread is a perfect companion for a cup of coffee, or, maybe more appropriately, a cup of tea. It’s just sweet enough to be a light dessert. It would also be good paired with ice cream or fruit.

Pure butter shortbread is one of those great comfort foods. They are baked in the Scottish Highlands, with just four natural ingredients. They would also make a good gift and Walkers offers several varieties in an array of charming tins.

With the holidays approaching, the shortbreads would make a nice addition for retailers.  The packages would also be a festive addition to a gift basket. And, of course, you can always offer samples, so your customers can enjoy the goodness.
