Ever since I was a child, I have been a big fan of fudge striped shortbread cookies. While I normally purchase and consume either CVS brand Fudge Striped Shortbread Cookies or a name brand version of the item, two weeks ago, for the first time, I purchased a 13 ounce (369 gram) package of Wal Mart brand Fudge Striped Shortbread Cookies. I wasn’t planning on buying these cookies when I went to a local Wal Mart store, but after seeing the advertised very low price of these delicious looking cookies, I just had to try them. I purchased one package of the Wal Mart Fudge Striped Shortbread Cookies and I’m very glad that I did so. These inexpensively – priced cookies look just like any other brand of fudge striped shortbread cookies and they feature the same great taste and texture as the much higher – priced brands. These cookies so impressed me, that I was compelled to write a product review of them. Presented here, in an effort to assist the consumer, is one food writer’s product review of Wal Mart brand Fudge Striped Shortbread Cookies.
The net weight of the package of Wal Mart brand Fudge Striped Shortbread Cookies is 13 ounces (369 grams). In physical size, this package is quite large, larger than most other brands of fudge striped shortbread cookies. According to the package label, the container holds approximately 11 three – cookie (35 grams) servings. I have to say, however, that it is hard for me to eat just three of these cookies, because they are so flavorful.
Wal Mart brand Fudge Striped Shortbread Cookies are packaged in a clear, sectioned plastic tray. The tray is covered with a clear plastic wrapper that lists all pertinent ingredient and nutritional information. It must be stated, though, that if you are seeking these cookies at your local Wal Mart store, the package wrapper is very basic. The clear label is accented by an attractive purple border and the top of the wrapper simply features the words Fudge Striped Shortbread Cookies. There is no wording that states that these cookies are a Wal Mart product. The only place where it states that these cookies are a Wal Mart product is on the back label, where at the bottom of the ingredient list, it is states that these cookies are marketed by Wal Mart Stores, Inc.
