Walkers Shortbread, the 115-year-old, family-owned shortbread bakery, will showcase their new Mini Crunchy Oatmeal Cookies and Chocolate Scottie Dog Shortbread at the 2013 Natural Products Expo East September 25-28, 2013. The Expo is being held at the Baltimore Convention Center in Baltimore, Md. The Mini Crunch Oatmeal Cookies and the Chocolate Scottie Dog Shortbread, as with all of Walkers Shortbread products, are free of preservatives, flavorings, colorings and genetically modified ingredients of any kind. Both snacks will be available to taste at booth #1137 during the three-day event.
The new Mini Crunchy Oatmeal Cookies are Walkers Shortbread’s first-ever oatmeal cookie and are baked with whole grain oats, sweet creamery butter, whole-wheat flour and a lick of Golden Syrup. The resealable, “grab and go” package contains 28 bite-sized cookies, a convenient snack for the on-the-go lifestyle.
The new whimsical Chocolate Scottie Dog Shortbread, made with Belgian chocolate and fresh creamery butter, follows the success of the pure-butter Scottie dog cookie, which was released in early 2012 and quickly became one of the brand’s top selling items, company officials say.
The Scottie dog products continue to support Walkers Shortbread’s ongoing sponsorship of the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASCPA), which aims to help end animal cruelty and homelessness nationwide. With each purchase, a portion of the sale is donated to the humane organization, with a minimum guaranteed donation of $50,000 to be made by Walkers at year’s end.
Walkers’ cookies and biscuits are made in Aberlour, Scotland at the Walkers’ family bakery using only the finest ingredients with no use of genetically modified ingredients, artificial flavorings, colors or additives of any kind. All Walkers cookies and biscuits are suitable for vegetarians and are certified Kosher OUD.
