Received my box today with best before of 30th June 2021
Mine arrived, they taste good although I may have over ordered. If anyone finds any good deals on larger sized clothing, then feel free to post :D
I’ve been eating 2 of these a day since the Mrs bought the last batch about 6 weeks ago, I’m sure the heart attack is just waiting for a good moment. I better hide this post. I’ve got no self control if she buys another batch.
So funny to see this here - I live in Callander. HotUK is such a U.K.wide thing that of never expects one's wee town to make it to the bright lights..
Never miss a 'Shortbread' deal again!

Blimey you're right... I've always assumed it they were much higher in sugar than that!
Shortbread is one of the lowest sugar biscuits there is. They are pretty much equal amounts flour, butter and sugar normally. Lookd like there is about 17 ot 18g of sugar per 100g, which is the same as something like All Bran (18g sugar per 100g) and much less than something like Fruit and Fibre. Obviously with the butter content it is higher in fat than those sugary cereals.
Absolutely yummy 😋
if it weren't for the pandemic i'd buy and share these around. You know they are gonna be amazing. Kudos to you, big families who can justify eating all of these before the end of March.

Loads of reduced Christmas edibles in Aldi Gateshead yesterday. I 'restricted' myself to 8 items at 9 pence each, others were filling whole trolleys!
...and they said brexit would increase proces! Who is laughing now Europe?
Yep, only by 50p or so. Didn't seem like much of a deal though
9p. You can't buy a banana for 9p. Bargain, but sugar and fat..... (angel) or (devil) ?
I don't eat sugar peiducts at all, I've read how it affects long term health, though I had a sweet tooth for decades. I ate a shortbread biscuit over the festive season, it was HEAVENLY!!! 👅😜 Yum flippin YUM!
Thanks OP voted 🔥..... definitely THE BEST shortbread. I've placed an order (y)
Thanks for this, definitely the best shortbread.
Take a look at Yankee Bundles, they also doing some bulk purchases on Walkers Shortbread (free delivery), take note of the expiration dates though... https://www.yankeebundles.com/product/official-12-x-walkers-pure-butter-shortbread-biscuit-selection-300g-boxes/ https://www.yankeebundles.com/product/official-12-x-walkers-pure-butter-shortbread-assortment-320g-boxes/
I can't see a best before date for the Rich Fruit Christmas Pudding on offer unfortunately - But Christmas Puds typically have pretty extensive shelf lives (I bought a three different ones this Xmas, alcoholic and non-alcoholic, and the shortest date was May 2022!) so it's up to you to think if you'd like to take a chance on this. Or you could always try get in touch with Walkers directly here to see if they'd be able to advise on dates.
Their Xmas Puds are nice as well (and none of that glace cherry nonsense in them) Would they have a sell by date that goes past next Xmas?

Sainsbury's all butter Highland shortbread 400g - £1 (+ Delivery Charge / Min Spend Applies) @ Sainsbury's£1Sainsbury's Deals
Seems extremely good value for proper all-butter shortbread. Available online and in store. Useful stock checker at https://help.sainsburys.co.uk/help/stockchecker/
The Lidl ones are 210 g for £0.42 so you could get more for less money (i.e £0.80 for 400 g) - I've had these both and I prefer the "shorter" texture of the Lidl ones but this is of course subjective. If the Sainsbury's ones float your boat then that's your winner!
The Sainsbury's one is 400 grams.
It's a good deal, it used to be £1.80.
Try these from Lidl, thank me later, 42p just now and often under 40p. https://www.lidl.co.uk/en/p/mcallister-s/mcallister-s-all-butter-shortbread-fingers/p16755
Thanks op- I didn’t know about these. Barginous

Ye a good buy saw them in paisley store and bargain buys are selling them for £3.49and also sell the little duck toilet roll for £5.99 a pack where farmfoods is 4 packs for £12
Waitrose own are very, very nice. Second to the best IMHO - Walkers.
The criticism of this shortbread is a bit harsh - there are far worse ones out there, however for value I would recommend Lidl's own which I think tastes better than Paterson's however for all out flavour Dean's is best.
If you're not near a Farmfoods or prefer all-butter, Sainsburys do a 400g pack for £1: https://www.sainsburys.co.uk/gol-ui/product/shortbread/sainsburys-highland-all-butter-shortbread-fingers-400g Waitrose a 400g pack for £1.50: https://www.waitrose.com/ecom/products/waitrose-shortbread-fingers/073211-37148-37149 hth and happy Christmas!

Never, never buy shortbread that doesn't state it is 'All Butter'. That's all.

I checked the contents. Not butter. Better off buying Aldi all butter ones at 39p for 210g. Only suitable as a gift for someone you don’t like!
Tried a tin of this. Unless you want a cheap and kitsch tin, the actual shortbreads within are not as nice as the 400g cardboard packets of shortbread fingers which are £1 so about the same price per gram. So cold from me on a purely quality of biscuit basis.
Spotted at Guildford today too (y)
Thats good then!

Butter enriched ? No thanks, I'll stick to the regular Morrisons All Butter Shortbread Fingers ( https://groceries.morrisons.com/products/morrisons-shortbread-fingers-511415011 ) for 45p a pack (200g), they are great, always this price, and don't have palm and rapeseed oils in them like these
