Walkers Pure Butter Shortbread - Review

 Just about everyone loves Walkers Shortbread and especially me.  It's amazing how just a few simple ingredients of flour, pure butter, sugar and salt, can produce such a delicious mouthful every time.  
No artificial flavouring, colouring or preservatives, just melt in the mouth pure butter shortbread.

Established over a hundred years ago, Walkers Shortbread has long been established as the world’s purveyors of luxury shortbread and the company today is still run by Joseph Walkers Grandchildren and Great Grandchildren who faithfully maintain the tradition of producing the finest shortbread's to the original recipes.
Having been sent a range of different Walkers shortbread to try, I have to say personally I like them all equally.  Although each shape variant has a different texture and finish, If I had to pick one, it would be Shortbread Highlanders, they are especially nice as they have been hand-rolled in demerara sugar for extra yum factor!

Other varieties include Shortbread Fingers, Petticoat Tails, Shortbread Triangles and Shortbread Rounds.

Interesting Facts:
Shortbread first originated in Scotland as a biscuit bread dessert.
Shortbread is not a cake or a biscuit - it's a unique confection

In addition to the instantly recogniseable tartan, every packet of Walkers Shortbread bears the image of Bonnie Prince Charlie and Flora MacDonald, the image which captures one of the most romantic moments from Scotland's history, and reflects all the tradition and care that goes into baking every piece of Walkers Shortbread  

Many thanks to Sara and Walkers for sending me some to try.
All opinions and thoughts are my own.  I was not required to write a positive review.  I only ever post reviews on products I like the look of and therefore would buy myself.
