Reviews for Stem Ginger Shortbread
This is the best cookie I ever had.
I gave a box to my daughter on her birthday a few weeks ago and her family loves them too. I like that the ginger pieces are chewy bits instead of infusing the whole cookie with ginger and thus ruining the wonderful shortbread cookie's original flavor.
I have always loved Walkers shortbread cookies, now I have found a new favorite. The stem ginger adds a delightful taste and texture.
I am surprised and ecstatic about the flavor and texture of this cookie. I will always select this cookie. The best ginger cookie ever.
I had never seen these in the store and saw them online so thought I’d try. They are a new favorite.
This shortbread with piquant ginger flavor is
a favorite of ours. It is particularly
pleasant with a warm beverage such as tea or
coffee. We're happy to find it available
here - it has been nearly impossible to find
it in local stores.
I am enjoying many of the Walker's Shortbread cookies. I ordered one box to try the Stem Ginger Shortbread and within a few days ordered 5 more boxes. Just the right amount of "zing". Will definitely order more in the future.
We have always liked the Stem Ginger Cookies, which we used to get in the airport lounge. Then we discovered the Stem Ginger Shortbread in UK, which we like even more. We and our neighbor whom we share, are very happy that they are available in the US!
I love ginger anything! My daughter who does not like ginger cookies, loved these. The ginger is a soft light touch. Cant wait to order more!
An all-time favorite! Sure to reorder. I love the shortbread and the ginger is to die for!
First time usage of this Stem Ginger cookie left me wanting more.
I would never order these again!!
These are a perfectly delicious combination of ginger and your wonderful shortbread. I have to hide them from my husband, if I want any!
The buttery lushness of Walker's shortbread (which we already enjoy) is amplified by the addition of small pieces of candied ginger, which surprise the taste buds in a delightful way. As you can maybe infer, we enjoy this! And to be honest, even though on a calorie-controlled diet, these are well worth the 70 calories each. These are, simply put, amazing.
My sister and I love ginger cookies so we could not resist ordering the stem ginger shortbread. They are excellent. Will buy again.

These cookies are buttery and delicious with a nice amount of ginger. There is a coating of sugar on top which can be easily brushed off. I suggest doing that because it overpowers the other flavors and taste profile.
Loved these! They were not too strong, a great coffee cookie. I will definitely buy again.
I love the natural ginger bits and chewy quality. I can't resist these cookies.
The warm, chewy little bits of ginger in these are fabulous -- great flavor, wonderful shortbread texture
I love this shortbread because it combines the buttery taste of the standard shortbread with the bite of ginger bits. If you like ginger, you'll like this.
What a great combination! I never thought of putting these 2 flavors together but they work. Smooth buttery tasting shortbread and a bite of ginger. Wow!
This is without a doubt my favorite cookie in the entire world! I can never be without.
Quality natural ingredients make Walker products the right choice. If I am going to have a dessert I want it to be extraordinary!!
Delicious just the right amount of ginger to give it a great taste.
I bought these for my husband who loves ginger and he loves these cookies too !
I now have a new favorite cookie; Stem Ginger Shortbread! Please keep this in stock all year long! Thank You!
Perfect texture, crisp enough to stand up to tea but soft to the bite. Perfect amount of bright ginger flavor. Sweet bit not too sweet. Perfect balance between shortbread and a ginger biscuit.
These shortbread are just fabulous. If you love ginger biscuits/cookies you will adore these. The spicy fresh ginger taste comes through with each bite of the sweet buttery shortbread. I wish I had bought more boxes. Guess I will just reorder!
Just got them and I have all ready eaten 1. IT's a special holiday taste for me--I hope they make it that long.
Ginger Shortbread is my favorite and I do not find it in any stores anymore.

These are the most delicious cookies in the world! I use to be able to find them in a couple of stores where I live but not anymore. Undeterred, I order them on-line for myself and my sister.
Oh sooo good! The bits of ginger is not overwhelming, just right!
These were new to me and I loved the chewy ginger in them. Unfortunately, every time I opened the package, my dog smelled it and came running for her little pinch. Safe to say, they're our new favorite cookie.
My all time favorite flavor. Always so fresh delivered direct from Walkers.
I love Walkers ginger stem, my go to snack on an airline flight
This is a very unique cookie which I enjoy with a cup of tea in the evening. Delightfully crisp with a brightness of ginger.
As great as ever! Another Walkers product popped up on an Instacart order,reminding me of the stem ginger shortbread I could never find at a store, anymore. I had forgotten all about this product for maybe 20 years! So,I was curious if they still exist and did a web search. Seeing your site and that I could order the cookies was a fantastic surprise!
First time we tried this delightful shortbread. Will not be the last time we order these!
The taste of the ginger in these cookies was spot on. I believe this because my spouse finished the package before I was even able to try them. She opened the box tried one and and had them with her daily morning coffee. She loved them
These cookies have been a favorite of mine for years and I have a hard time finding them at local stores.
Delicious cookies with the right ingredients, nicely packed, not too sweet, and just perfect.
My daughter and I order the Walkers cookies online that local stores don't generally carry. Two of my favorites are the Stem Ginger Shortbread and the Vanilla Shortbread. They are so remarkably good that we only bake our own on occasion. Lazy (us) and very good (the cookies) is a pleasurable combination.
I had tried the Stem Ginger Biscuits before and loved them, but I wasn't sure what the shortbread would be like. They were AMAZING!
I have a new favorite! I love the tasty little bits of ginger in your already wonderful shortbread!
These were purchased as a gift for a ginger-lover. I'm expecting a very positive and enthusiastic response! (You can count on that when it's Walkers cookies...LOL!)
I purchased these for my husband and daughter--the ginger fans in the family. I did sample one and it had a nice ginger bite. I was a little surprised they didn't go faster but I think they were enjoyed nonetheless. My son wasn't a fan of the 'bits' but that's more of a texture issue . If you like ginger I think you'll be happy with these.
You know that slight heat when you eat ginger snaps; well these have it too. But only slightly. These are delicious and buttery. Wasn't sure I'd like them but I do. Not as crunchy as the other cookies, a little softer. I recommend them.
I ordered several boxes to give as gifts but had to try them first. We have eaten half of what I ordered as I will probably have to order more.
I first tried the Scottish cookies with the stem ginger but this time tried the shortbread and I like this better. The cookie is a little lighter but still lots of ginger.

I wanted to order my usual Stem Ginger Cookies, but they weren't available. I ordered these instead, and I love both kinds equally!
This cookie is not buttery, but the flavor is wonderful. If I am willing to give bu the buttery flavor, this will be my choice. Good cookie.
Wow! These are amazing! Love the chewiness of the delicious ginger. Great with a good cup of tea! Sure to become one of our family's favorites!!
I am a traditional Walker Shortbread lover but my husband really enjoys the stem ginger flavor. Also good for digestion. He’s getting 5 boxes for stocking stuffers. 🎅🏻
The Stem Ginger Shortbread are a wonderful digestive biscuit and desert in one!
If you like ginger , these are the cookies for you!!!!! Yummy!!!!!!!
This has been our must-have treat for decades — the very best!
