      Not amazing

      Walkers Shortbread rounds scream Scottish, plus the fact that this variety is called Highlanders make it a very Scottish snack. Shortbread is known to be probably one of the unhealthiest types of biscuits and cookies, due to its high butter and sugar content.

      Thee are many different varieties of shortbread, fingers, triangular ones and the ones I am reviewing which are round and coated in Demerara sugar are the Highlander ones.

      The packaging is the first major clue that this is a very Scottish snack, with the traditional red and dark blue tartan styling on the box and a pile of the rounds on the front looking very appetising.

      Inside the box there is a cellophane wrapped black tray holding three rows of three rounds apiece. As these are Demerara rounds, I did expect them to be coated with sugar all over but they were not, I could only really see it on the edges and only a scant scattering on the top which was disappointing. It meant that though the shortbread had the thick rich texture that you would expect from shortbread, it did not have the sweet kick and crunch that I was wanting from this variety.

      They cost £2.20 at full price in Budgens. I don't think I would pay that full price as it doesn't seem justified. I have tried Sainsbury's version of this which is about the same price, maybe slightly less, and found it better.
