Say it LOUD! Say it PROUD! **I LOVE WALKERS SHORTBREAD COOKIES!**
Posted by: Buzz
Date: October 25, 2020 06:25PM
One of the few childhood pleasures that's just as good today as was in the 1950's....

           


...and 1960's, 70's, 80's....

Must resist temptation to buy more than one super-sized holiday tin at Costco each year....

Most years resistance is futile.

My grandmother used get shortbread cookie tins from all over the world, even others from Scotland. Although as a kid the cookies were rationed to me (in much too severely restricted quantities for my liking), there was something about Walkers that just made it THE shortbread cookie. Nothing from Europe, Scandinavia, Asia, or Australia could compare.

Still can't...,

though relative newcomer, Butterfingers™, from Australia, is a damn good (no bones about it being a) recreation of Scottish shortbread.
Hard to get in USA, but spousal unit's flight attendant buddies can bring them back from Australian layovers.... Mrs. Buzz stopped flying those trips back in the mid 00's, (when her airline downgraded the layover hotels). BTW, macadamia nuts are native to Australia, so pretty much anything Australian w/ macadamias gets bonus points.


Any decades' old childhood yummies that still delight you now, as much as they did then?

Don't get them at Costco, but Walkers are mighty fine where ever they are obtained.

Too crunchy for my liking, but spousal unit is what we call a "power user" in tech terminology, so they're actually around here more than Walkers.

The horror, the horror!

Joking aside, those gigantic Costco tins are highly revered around my household. When we get to the bottom of the tin it is as though a curtain has been drawn or the sun has gone out.

I don't buy them because I like them too much. I'd just sit and eat them until they're gone. Kind of like I don't go to eat-all-you-can places because I do eat-all-I can!

I ration ‘em to myself at the rate of two or three cookies per day.


OK, in my mind I ration them to myself at the rate of two or three cookies per day.


OK, in my mind l’d like to think it’s possible to ration them to myself at the rate of two or three cookies per day.


Ah, heck, forget it. Who wants a cookie? All this rationing is making me crave a some Walkers cookie cookies.

Those things are just pathetic compared to Walker's shortbread.

I like the occasional few shortbread cookies, so I might try a tin.

Costco's Donsuemor Traditional Madeleines are pretty much my favorite cookie, but Costco has stopped selling them, and that's a major disappointment.

I don't shop Walmart, but desperate times...

Those Royal Dansk Butter Cookies that come in the big blue tin are tasty.
