I have to say that when I heard that Walkers was at the food show announcing new additions to their family I was elated! Just the thought of Walkers Gluten-Free Shortbread made my heart flutter just a tad. When I gathered myself, I decided to give a shout out to Walkers to find out all the details. Little did I know, Walkers was announcing Gluten-Free triplets!
Cue the trumpets … Walkers Gluten Free Shortbread – Chocolate Chip, Ginger & Lemon and traditional. Be still my heart …
You see, I grew up on Walkers Shortbread and tea. I used to enjoy them with my Nana and Mum. Nothing compares to Walkers in my book. Actually for the first time in 116 years, Walkers Shortbread has adapted their traditional shortbread recipe so that everyone can enjoy their authentic shortbread. Now people like me with Celiac Disease, or those who are Gluten Intolerant and living a Gluten-Free lifestyle can celebrate with the World’s Finest Shortbread – Walkers Shortbread. Best of all is that Gluten Free Walkers Shortbread is certified Gluten Free and Walkers promises, “all the pure butter taste, aroma and texture you love but without the gluten.”
I received a gift package from Walkers Shortbread with all three new products. I wanted to share some information with you that was included.
“We are delighted to introduce a gluten free option to the Walkers Shortbread line, allowing everyone the opportunity to enjoy this delicious traditional treat without compromising on taste,” said Jim Walker, Managing Director, Walkers Shortbread. “With so many now suffering from food intolerances, we feel it is important to create choices for all and are proud to have the unique offering of traditional shortbread, which is certified gluten free. With three different options, there really is something for everyone to enjoy.” They also stated that the new Walkers Gluten Free Shortbread contains less than 20 parts per million of gluten, which meets the FDA standard for Gluten Free food.
Well I must say that I am quite flattered with the gift package from Walkers with all three for me to enjoy. Well done Walkers! The first bite was better than I remembered. The shortbread melted in my mouth full of butter flavor and absolutely no funky textures. I opened the Chocolate Chip first and I am very impressed with the amount of chocolate chips in each one. The traditional shortbread is pure buttery perfection. Ginger & Lemon with real Ginger bits. Once again, afternoon tea is my new favorite way to add a lil’ zippiness to my afternoon.
The new Gluten Free Walkers Shortbread will arrive in stores across the country soon. Some stores may already offer them. If not, please show them a copy of this post and ask them to add it to their shopping list. Better yet, I would love to see these in our favorite coffee and tea houses, wouldn’t you?!
You can also order directly from Walkers Gluten Free Shortbread from their site. You can buy individual boxes or a variety package ranging from $4.99 ea – $14.97 + SH. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate Celiac Awareness Month – brew your favorite tea and enjoying the Triplets – Walkers Gluten Free Shortbread.
Well done Walkers Shortbread and congrats on the newest addition to the Walker family – Triplets!
Enjoy Walkers Gluten Free Shortbread and Carry On!
