Scottie Moms, beware: Walkers Shortbread has done it again! I think they've caught on to our obsession with Scottie dogs and our innate desire to buy up everything Scottie. After the Scottie dog-shaped shortbread cookie proved to be one of their most popular products, they introduced the chocolate variation (my personal favorite!). Now, they've recently announced they intend to unveil Scottie dog "puppies" - a miniature version of the larger Scottie dog shortbread cookie. Well, at least this time, they're being considerate of our hips!
According to the release, there will be 42 bite-sized shortbread cookies in each re-sealable “grab and go” bag. The new cookies retail for $3.49 each and will be available for purchase beginning February 1, 2014 on the Walkers Shortbread website and in select specialty retailers throughout the United States. (Scottie Dads, take note: Valentine's Day is just around the corner! Why not surprise the Scottie Mom in your life with a bag of these new "puppies" or make a cookie bouquet of the larger Scottie cookies?) - No, Walkers Shortbread did not pay us to write that. We're just trying to help increase the Scottie Love in your household!
Apparently, Walkers Shortbread underestimated the high regard we Scottie Moms hold for our precious pups and anything designed with their likeness when they first came out with the Scottie dog cookie. In their recent news release, they discuss what was behind their decision to create the "puppies." All I have to say is: they better get baking! February 1 is just around the corner...
When we introduced the original Scottie Dog shape in 2012, we never imagined that little dog would quickly become one of our best selling items; it was only natural for us to expand the line to include a chocolate version and now a mini-version,” said Lisa Sherman, brand manager at Walkers Shortbread. “These Mini-Scottie Dog ‘puppies’ are a perfect snack for kids and adults who are looking for a fun way to satisfy their cookie cravings."
