I am a fan of good shortbread cookies. For many years one of my favorites has been Lorna Doone.

However, your recent changes in the ratio of ingredients and packaging have impacted both flavor and product price to and unacceptable degree. In it's current form I will no longer purchase your product. Good shortbread is easy to find and Lorna Doone is no longer good shortbread.Nice going.

Maybe Mexico will serve to improve your ability to provide consistent value and quality in your products.

Your management is seriously needs an overhaul not the customary bonuses.

Another satisfied customer...NOT!

Just bought new lorna doones.Used to be my favorite cookie.

Thought the change was just in the packaging. But the cookies are not the same at all!! They dont taste buttery at all and the crumbly texture is gone. They are dry and tasteless.

Please go back to old recipe.

Will not purchase them again unless you do.Will buy the scottish shortbread instead.

I too am unhappy with Lorna Doone cookies.I thought maybe it was the packaging (the new individual packaging within the packaging) that made the difference but I'm reading that you changed the ingredients as well.

They taste funny. Honestly, go back to the way it was. Retail is almost $5 a box.

Surely you can afford to go back to the way it was for 50+ years.If its not broken, don't fix it.

Fully agree


What a shame. Whatever the recipe changes were, these cookies aren't what they used to be. I'm done!
