Walkers!


Are you a complete cookie junkie like me? Every weekend when I go grocery shopping, while walking past the cookies and cakes aisle, I always tell myself - no I wouldn't pick up these biscuits - they are tasty yes, but I already have a stash at home!. And we know, nothing beats the satisfaction of baking your own cookies and serving them warm with your afternoon tea or coffee. And I always have my qualms about some of the ready-to- eat store bought items - like the kind of fat used, the amount used , and I'm always looking for the taste plus nutrition factor.

But then there are days that are exceptions - like when I pick up packs of the best biscuits ever made - The Walkers Pure Butter Shortbread. Seriously, these biscuits are divine! And like all things going 'whole'- what with whole wheat pasta, whole wheat 'white' flour, whole wheat tortillas, can butter biscuits be far behind?

So when I saw 'Digestive' butter biscuits, and that too from Walkers, there was no way I was going to pick up just one. These are made with oats, wheat, honey and butter. Trust me you all - try these and I bet you'd thank me for that. Sure it has more butter than I would put in 10 batches of cookies, but you know what - Who cares? These are 'digestive' right? Lol...


So here is how it's made..hehe..just kidding..

Go grab a pack or two. There are some amazing versions. I can't quite recommend one or two..if I start quoting my favourite, it'll probably be all that they have - but definitely try the Shortbread, these Digestive ones, Raspberry and White Chocolate, Belgian Chocolate...oh..I could go on and on. Better visit here for more. And no, Walkers are NOT sponsoring this article (sigh..)

P.S. - It's almost mid-night as I write this, but just looking at the pictures of these beauties has made me pining for them all over again...and there go another couple of them in my hungry tummy!

  5. I work for Walkers in the US so I may be biased but the digestives are one of my favorites. The link in the article takes you to the site for UK consumers. US consumers can purchase them at walkersus.com. Thanks for the great article. I have to add that the Belgian Chocolate cookies are another favorite. Have a secret stash in my office :)

  6. Thank you for this lovely article! I, too, am a fan of Walkers cookies, from the original shortbread to the raspberry and chocolate combos. Since I am also concerned about a healthy diet, I make sure to eat a balanced diet which includes salads and whole grains. This ensures I can eat my cookies without guilt. And for those "heart healthy" folks out there, a nice glass of red wine (see Yale New Haven article on heart health benefits of read wine at http://www.ynhh.org/online/nutrition/advisor/red_wine.html) goes great with the white chocolate and raspberry cookies!
