Walkers Shortbread Giveaway (Closed)

I recently did a review of Walkers Pure Butter Shortbread and I while I thought they were all so buttery and delicious, you didn't get to taste them. I thought it would be nice to have a giveaway and the gracious people at Walkers agreed to spread the buttery goodness! So that means one of you will win this tin of Walkers Pure Butter Shortbread.

This red tartan tin is filled to the brim 6 different types of shortbread. It includes over 28 ounces of Chocolate Chip Shortbread, Shortbread Fingers, Rounds, Triangles and Ovals as well as Butterscotch Shortbread Rings. After you're done consuming this assortment of shortbread you can reuse the tin. It's the gift that never ends :-)

Thank you Walkers for sponsoring this giveaway!

To enter this giveaway:

  1. Please take a moment to visit the Walkers website.
  2. Tell me which Walkers products you have tried or would like to try.
  3. Answer this question, "What is your favorite way to enjoy shortbread?"

This giveaway will end Monday, April 26th at 11:59 pm CST. One winner will be chosen at Random and revealed later next week. Please be sure I have a way of contacting you if you win.

Good luck!

Shortbread crusts are my favorite form of shortbread -- mm! I'm not sure if I've tried Walkers before, but I'd like to try their traditional shortbread.

I haven't tried any of theirs, but would love to. I'm sure I'd love the pure butter shortbread highlanders. Sounds like a good basic shortbread.

I try to save my goodies for evenings, so that's probably when we'd enjoy them.

I've been craving shorbread cookies ever since you reviewed these the other day! I would love to try the triangles, they just look fun and you could have fun dipping them in sauces. And I love their idea of the caramel nut bars, that sounds fabulous!
I think my favorite way to enjoy shortbread is smothered in chocolate!

I love Walkers - maybe too much! I've never tried the butterscotch rings, but I bet they're great!

The Sugar Queen said...

I've never tried Walkers Cookies, but they sure do look good. I would try the traditional shortbread cookies, since I would like to put a little lemon curd on them. (That's what I've done with Lorna Doones.)

Kristin said...

I've never had Walkers brand, but I love shortbread cookies! I just eat them plain, with a glass of milk on the side.

Mom24 said...

I've never had them, but I would love to try them straight out of the tin.

A Feast for the Eyes said...

I can see the Shortbread Rounds, carefully placed in a dish of homemade ice cream. Yep, that's how I love my shortbreads... well, unless I make a shortbread pie crust!

healingtouch said...

I have not tried these YET but would love to try them, especially the Ginger Shortbread cookies OMG I love gingerbread !!!!

symphonious sweets said...

I love walkers shortbread cookies! I have only tried the regular shortbread and had no idea they had any other cookies! I eat them straight out of the box and gobble them up on my drive home from the grocery store. With tea and a good brit com is good too!

Sarah said...

I would love to try the chocolate chip shortbread! And my favorite way to enjoy shortbread is with tea...yum!

Maria said...

I love buttery shortbread! I would love to try the chocolate chip. Mmmmm!

Cat said...

since reading your review, i can't wait to try Walker's brand shortbread. i love this kind of lighty-sweet treat with a good cup of coffee... nothing else!

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

I've only tried the traditional shortbread. I didn't know Walkers had all these varieties. I like mine with tea thank you!

I love their traditional shortbread. I treat myself to the little individual packs more often than I would care to admit. I would love to try the vanilla shortbread. (Although the Animal Shapes look like lots of fun and I have never seen them before.)

Jana said...

I love Walkers shortbread. It is one of my treats to myself. I love drinking hot tea with these tasty little treasures. Very generous of Walkers to sponsor this give-away. Thank you.

Annie said...

I'm sad to say I've never tried any of them. Would love to try the lemon thins.

The Pickrel Family said...

I have never tried the Walker brand, but would be willing :-) I would like the traditional, and just simple with some milk.

Sunshine said...

I love the walker shortbread. Walker cookies are some buttery and melt in your mouth. I would have to have an opportunity to try them all. Thanks!

ButterYum said...

I love good ole traditional shortbread by Walkers, but I have to admit, the fancy rounds are adorable.

My favorite way to eat it is to dunk them in ice cold milk.

Thanks for the opportunity to enter!!!

:)

Lemondrops Simple Stuff said...

This may be one of those "Be careful what you wish for" Moments. As I love these cookies and could probably down a whole tin all by myself!!! So buttery good!!! I love the rounds and oddly enough would eat them with a diet pepsi. I am so weird!!!

Jena said...

I've never tried any of Walkers products before, but I would love to try their Almond Shortbread. I love almonds and shortbread, so the combination of both would be heavenly!

My favorite way to enjoy shortbread is with a glass of cold, organic skim milk. Something healthy with something unhealthy, hehe. :)

jennifer t said...

Yum shortbread, one of my favorites. Unfortunately, I have never tried Walkers shortbread, but hope to soon.
I love shortbread with a hot cup of green tea and think their Butterscotch Shortbread Rings would be perfect!!!!
Maybe I should make some now....

Sherry G said...

The white chocolate raspberry cookies look outta this world! And my favorite way to enjoy shortbread is the dunking method all the way. give me a glass of milk with shortbread and I'm a happy girl=)

Ingrid said...

Helloooooooooo, I'm here! :)

I've not had any of their products before. I think I'd like the shortbread fingers. Those are the ones you said had a hint of salt, right? Love the salty sweet combo! :)

Thanks for being so kind and sharing the shortbread love! :)

Yummmmmm

I get the shortbread fingers at my local Trader Joes, so yummy! I love to eat shortbread with homemade butterscotch pudding, it is so so good!!! Love your blog! Dora

Kelgirl105 said...

I love Shortbread-- I always consider it a huge treat when I get myself some of the chocolate chip rings!

The Duchess of Wessex said...

I have only tried Walkers shortbread fingers. How sad, huh? I love them with hot chocolate!

Thank you for introducing me to the Walker's site. How cute are those Tower Bridge and London Bus boxes!? But I must tell you it's the WHITE CHOCOLATE RASPBERRY Cookies that are on my list! I may never buy Pepperidge Farms cookies again!

tamilyn said...

Dip the vanilla shortbread in some melted chocolate fondue-yum!

Melanie L said...

I used to LOVELOVELOVE the Walker's Chocolate-Covered Shortbread but it was always so hard to find. I don't think they make them anymore - I couldn't find them on their website. :(

I did however see the Lemon Heart Shortbreads and boy, do those look amazing!!!!

I know it sounds boring but I like to eat them right out of the package!!!! I usually can't wait and sometimes I'm eating them before I even make it home from the store. And of course, a tall glass of milk!

Kristen said...

I love shortbread with hot English Breakfast tea for dipping. Who knew they had animal shaped shortbread! Very cute! I'll have to look for those at the store. :-)

mannadonn said...

I actually haven't tried any of them. I would like to try the rounds and the triangles (since you said they were crumbly and a little salty).

I enjoy shortbread on it's own or with my coffee. Yum!

Felice said...

I have only tried their traditional triangle-shaped shortbread. I went their website and I didn't realize how many different products they made so thanks for bringing it to my attention via this post. I would love to try their Oatcake Crackers and the Stem Ginger Cookies. I'll have to look and see if any of our stores carry them. My favorite way to enjoy the shortbread would be to have them with a nice hot cup of Earl Grey Tea and a good book or magazine to read.

american girl primitives said...

I have not tried this brand before but I will be on the lookout! I love the idea of the lemon thins, butterscotch rings and the chocolate chip for my DH!

The Lemon Thins look wonderful. Yummy with a cup of coffee on a Saturday morning.

I've had the Walker's Fingers, Petticoat Tails, The Rounds and The Choc. Chip Shortbread. I love, love , love Walker's shortbread and my wonderful family always makes sure I get these yummy cookies for Christmas!
You just can't beat the classic taste=)

Hill said...

I would like to try Shortbread Highlanders. I always enjoy my cookies with a glass of milk.

Memória said...

YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAA A GIVEAWAY!! I was hoping you and Walter's would hold a giveaway for these shortbreads. I would like to try your favorite one: Walkers Pure Butter Shortbread Highlanders! Thanks, Monica and Walter's!

Rebecca Lynn said...

I am a huge fan of Walker's Shortbread. Would love to try the Almond flavor, because I like just a hint of flavor to my shortbrea.

Also, I generally like to have tea with my shortbread, and I have a really great creamy oolong tea that I think would go well with the almond shortbread taste. :-)

Great post! Thanks for the review.

Joycee said...

The Shortbead fingers/sticks are my favorite although I will eat the shortbread rounds or the Highlanders or the choc. chip ones....

Sook said...

I love shortbread! Yum!

LJMH said...

the classic shortbread fingers would be my weapon of choice. And of course, with a tall glass of cold milk!

Grimmy said...

I have tried and love the shortbread rounds. I also love to dip them in my coffee.

Marina said...

My husband has a huge tin of Walker's shortbread that he sometimes shares with me. My favorite are the fingers. Love those. Confession: sometimes we will sit in bed and read and eat shortbread cookies and it's worth the crumbs in the bed to be able to nibble away on this buttery treat!

Cheryl F. {The Lucky Ladybug} said...

I've tried and love many Walkers Shortbread Cookies, including fingers, rounds, and triangles; chocolate chip shortbread; and also their stem ginger cookies :) My favorite way to enjoy shortbread is straight, right out of the box with a glass of unsweetened iced tea or a hot mug of green or white tea. *Thanks* for the giveaway!

Andrew's Mom said...

I love them all too - the plain old shortbread is a favorite. And I especially love tins - (I'm weird I know). jenhartin at optonline dot net

Heather said...

I haven't tried Walkers shortbread yet but think I would love the pure butter flavor. I like using shortbread cookies in crusts for pies and cheesecakes.

Janine said...

I really enjoy walkers shortbread. I have tried their traditional shortbread fingers. My favorite way to eat them are with a hot cup of tea.
Thank you for the giveaway. I will be going to the store soon to pick up the chocolate chip shortbread.

I like Walkers square ones that come two to a pack, and are available near the register of fancy stores.

I just made this recipe: http://smittenkitchen.com/2008/10/twice-baked-shortbread-other-lost-recipes/ and I loved it -- really flaky and delicious. Shortbread is one of my favorite cookies, because it's really finicky, but left simple, it's divine.

Kind of reads like a life lesson.

pinon family said...

Dear Shortbread I LOVE YOU!! Thanks for the giveaway.

Michelle said...

There were so many to choose from but I picked: Flora MacDonald and Bonnie Prince Charlie (Assorted Shortbread)
thanks for sharing.

Patty said...

I would love to try the lemon ones. I love to eat the shortbread cookies with a glass of cold milk as my after dinner treat.

Susan A said...

I have only tried Walkers shortbread triangles and the choc. chip shortbread. I love shortbread crusts in tarts and cheesecakes. I don't get to eat Walkers shortbread as much as I would like, but I do get one of the little mini packs every year in my christmas stocking. Still I like them best just by themselves. I like to take little nibbles off the cookies and let them melt in my mouth. Yum.

jjnhubbs said...

I've never tried Walkers...I don't even think I've seen it anywhere, but I'd love to try the chocolate chip shortbread. It sounds fantastic! My favorite way to eat shortbread is with a nice cup of coffee! Yum!
