Take the High Road to Walkers Shortbread

Have you ever come upon a food product which made your mouth water, wishing that it were kosher? And because it was not certified you had to buy a different brand, a substitute? We certainly have! But sometimes, quite often these days, we can enjoy the real thing, the best of its type. So, although it is not newly certified, or a new product on the market, we are delighted to feature one of the most decadent, irresistible treats we know.

Walkers Shortbread is unequivocally the most delicious, pure butter, shortbread in the whole wide world! In our opinion, there is no competition!  Walkers makes the best butter cookies, natural, pure, with no artificial anything.

The Walkers story begins over a hundred years ago in 1898, when the twenty-one year old Joseph Walker opened the doors of his own bakery with a loan of £50 and the dream of making the finest shortbread in the world.

It is now the leading brand of food exported from Scotland.  The family continues to operate its original retail shop in Aberlour, Speyside…KosherEye has been there, and seen the breathtaking, rolling green hills!  Nearly a century later, Joseph’s grandchildren began exporting Walkers shortbread to over 60 countries around the world — still baking with the original recipe. Walkers has earned numerous British, Commonwealth and International awards. 

As they say in Walkers hometown, Aberlour Speyside, Scotland, they’re just perfect for tea! But, we also love them with our coffee here in the U.S.

Walker’s shortbreads are available in several flavors including almond, lemon, chocolate chip and classic. They contain no artificial flavorings, colorings or additives and are certified OU-Dairy.
