Not much chocolate is included in “Walkers Chocolate Chip Shortbread”, but as I never had chocolate from Scotland, I decided to take this chance and buy it, to have a least one chocolate item from Scotland on my list.
Walkers Chocolate Chip Shortbread Cookies were established 1898, and they seem to be quite a traditional enjoyment in Scotland.
On the backside of the box I am reading following words: “This luxury shortbread is manufactured in the secluded village of Aberlour, Speyside, in the heart of the Scottish Highlands. It is baked with traditional ingredients and we personally guarantee that every care is taken in the manufacture using the finest butter and real chocolate chips.”
Aberlour is indeed a very small village with 1.100 inhabitants.
My first exerience with Walkers Chocolate Cookies was a fine taste of butter cookies. Unfortunately the chocolate in those cookies is very rare and hard to find in the flavour. Compared to those American Chocolate Cookies, the Scottish Chocolate Cookies have a lack of chocolate.
The cookie itself has a very fine and tasteful flavour. A great enjoyment with a cold glass of milk, hot tea or coffee. The negative point about Walkers is its economical use of chocolate.
