This is on the clearance isle instore in Stockport off Portwood roundabout, it was £7.99 (coughs rip off) was reduced to £3.99 (coughs still rip off) but for some reason scans in at £1.99

The tin is nice enough I suppose but seriously who would have paid the full £7.99? obviously not many.

Do you know how much is in the box?
e.g. its weight

After North Sea Oil, Shortbread(or 'Shortie' as it's coloquially known) is our next biggest export:w00t:

or if you're not interested in the pretty tin you could get 500g for ~20p

9oz flour
6 oz butter
3oz sugar

knead well
press into a baking tray
put it in the oven for half an hour at 150°C

eat.

Well if you can buy butter for about 40/45p per 500g then you probably can, if you get gas or electricity for free too. Applies to most things - I am sure even that price could be beaten - why not keep a cow and milk it to make the butter first? How ridiculous do we have to get - It is not much of a valid argument in my mind.

A 200g plain pack of Scottish Shortbread is 59p at Lidl, and very nice it is too, at what I would say is a very cheap price, so this offer would appear to be close to that, so I say get it while you can, if you want the box!

it is actually marked up at 1.99 in our local store. perhaps they forgot to update the shelf ticket.

this is really good stuff if you like shortbread - and they love it up here - aberdeen.

Your "cow and milk" quip made me laugh.
Had a vision of the cow being milked in the kitchen!
Thanks for the heads up on Lidls 59p shortbread.Forgot about that.
Got 400g from the 99p shop before Xmas.

These are marked up at £1.99 in the Ystrad Mynach branch.

#14

After a while on this site, all will become clear - even among supposed hard core bargain hunters, there are plenty of people who are complete suckers for marketing ploys and will happily shell out vastly inflated prices for perceived yet imaginary luxury - think iPhone, think Sony, think Apple & think of the near full prices for second-hand gear that buyers queue for - so getting away with sticking a couple of quid extra on a box of biscuits by putting a nice picture on is EASY meat for retailers! :whistling:

"Well if you can buy butter for about 40/45p per 500g then you probably can"

Recipe only calls for 6oz butter = 170g.
"I cannot beleive it's not butter" is half price at Sainsburys. Do it.

But THAT is margarine, nothing remotely like butter! Just because it has the word "butter" in it as part of the slick marketing doesn't make it any different to Stork or whatever brand, full of trans-fat hydrogenated vegetable oil which is there to replace the whale-oil that was in margarine before they banned it!

Even EC butter-mountain type butter "Holly Bush" for example is often about 85p for 250g at best now :-( That would be about 58p worth on it's own! Clearly manufacturers are buying it cheaper than consumers can.

Proper shortbread IS only made with butter. (As are these Lidl and Sainsbury's brands we are talking about) One of those inalienable facts, anything else is just not shortbread, it might be some sort of biscuit, but not shortbread.

I made the mistake of not reading the label on some bought at Netto (that wasn't) recently, and I could EASILY believe IT wasn't butter! :-(
