The Verdict

The whole family tried these Shortbread Hearts.

Our box contained 16 Shortbread Hearts.

These Shortbread Hearts are from ORGRAN’s Premium range of products. The heart shaped biscuits look really appealing and each one is approx 45mm across and 40mm high.

You could definitely taste the vanilla flavour, the texture of the shortbread was quite powdery and dry but I felt like I was left with a greasy coating in my mouth afterwards.

I guess what you need to bear in mind when eating this or any other free-from alternative, is that someone who hasn’t tasted the original product doesn’t have a direct comparison or a pre-conceived expectation as we did. It must be very difficult to produce an exact replica of a product like shortbread as a dairy free alternative when it’s main ingredient is butter, so although this product wasn’t for us it certainly won’t stop us from trying other ORGRAN products.
