Not resolved

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!

I just brought home my ol favorite, Lorna Doone. This first bite was not The taste I remembered.

Then I finished the whole cookie and realized it is not the same recipe. And then I googled it and found your post so I agree with you


I have bee buying Lorna Doone cookies for our Cafe’ for years, but all of a sudden I can’t find them at Sam’s Club. Why?


Oops typo...meant *their*


Sigh. I grew up looking forward to having Lorna Doone shortbread as my after school treat...alas, 30 years later, they have lost they're charm.

The texture has been ruined, the buttery flavor that is paramount for good shortbread is nonexistent, and there are ingredients added now that wouldn't have made the cut years ago. To say I'm disappointed is an understatement...but sacrificing quality for profit isn't always the best move.

Some of us don't mind paying for what's worthwhile. It's OK least I can order authentic Scottish shortbread online.

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!


I agree. I havent had a Lorna Doone in several years.

Recently ive been craving them but didnt want to pay the high price. I finally gave in to temptation. Wow, what a huge let down. Last time i experienced such a let down was with chips ahoy.

Hey nabisco and others whom cheapin and/or change the recipe of good products..WAKE THE @#$& UP. Thats what once made you successful!!!!!!
