My mom handed down her love of Walkers Shortbread to me and I have handed it down to my daughter, so we are truly a three-generation group of ladies ranging in age of 11 to 57…there is something to be said about the love of food and it is a tie that binds us all… -Mae L.
My Papa. I suppose Dad shared his with me the first time I had it and it was so buttery and crispy and melted in my mouth, not all over me. I just know we shared that love of Walkers all our lives and every Christmas I found him a new tin, or the newest one put out, or just the original. It was “our” father-daughter share. – Cindy
