Remember when I told you last month about my partnership with Walkers Shortbread cookies? Well this month I’m excited to show you their newest shortbread item…..the Chocolate Scottie Dog Shortbread. This adorable cookie is a follow up to the very successful pure-butter Scottie Dog shaped shortbread cookie released in early 2012 and quickly became one of the top-selling items. It contains only one extra ingredient….can you guess? Geniune Belgian chocolate. Mmm…..
I have to admit I was thrilled to get these scottie cookies in the mail because I had been seeing them pop up all over town….even Costco! Walkers Shortbread sent me both the chocolate and the pure-butter scottie shortbreads to try. I have to admit that I couldn’t wait to sample these cute shortbreads with my daily cup of tea. PERFECT!!
Want to hear something else pretty perfect? Walkers sponsorship of the ASPCA….The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals! Following a successful partnership with the ASPCA in 2012, through which Walkers raised over $31,000 for the ASPCA, the company has committed to a second year of partnership with the humane organization. In 2013, Walkers will make a minimum donation of $50,000 which will be funded by sales of Scottie Dog shortbread cookies. For every 3.9 ounce carton sold, 10 cents per sale will be donated…and the large sizes will donate 20 cents per unit sale. Isn’t that neat?
If you’ve never tried these scottie dog shortbread cookies, let me tell you….you’re missing out! They are quite delectable and went very well with my tea. I urge you to give them a try. The fact that you’re helping out animals when you purchase a box is quite a nice bonus. I’d like to remind you that Walkers contain no genetically modified ingredients, artificial colors, flavorings or preservatives.
