Are these still popular with today's youth?

No. I don’t think so

Were they molested?

I can taste them in my mouth. Gross

by Anonymousreply 305/24/2020

Those are the cookies they LET you have when you're a hospital patient. Sweet, crunchy, bland - and nothing else.

I'm not sure that shortbread was ever popular with the kiddies but Trefoil shortbreads are still one of the Girl Scouts' bestsellers.

Is Lorna Doone the cookie equivalent of Werther’s Original?

by Anonymousreply 705/24/2020

Yes, I just bought a box today. I’m 51 so don’t know if I qualify as a member of today’s youth. But I pass for 26.

Never heard of them.

I prefer Lorna Luft cookies.

by Anonymousreply 1005/24/2020

I think they're great as a neutral cookie, like water crackers are to crackers. The topping becomes the feature. Nutella, jam, cream cheese, fresh fruit, etc.

I can’t imagine these ever being popular with youths considering the old lady packaging design.

They weren't even popular with the youth of the 1920s.

by Anonymousreply 1305/24/2020

They're really popular over on the Let's Be an Antique Mall thread...

Are these the cookies that only appear for one day every hundred years?

My grandmother would give me a couple of these in a little glass of milk to eat with a spoon. ADORED it -probably wouldn’t now. Have never seen a child eat them since.

They are two boxes for the price of one at CVS this week

My brother called them "sand cookies" but I liked them.

by Anonymousreply 1905/24/2020

r19 Is your brother French? The French call this type of cookie SABLE, which means 'sandy.' You can't find a simpler cookie: a fat + a sugar + a flour = good eats.

I buy them occasionally, they are good paired with juicy berries, such as blackberries or strawberries. Nice with tea or cocoa, less so with coffee.

It's a pity. They could be good, but are made of crap ingredients.

by Anonymousreply 2205/24/2020

Everyone eats them in France and Switzerland and probably many countries. They are made with good flour and butter. The butter is not rancid like the Walkers sold in USA. The latter seem to be specially made of rancid butter for the cartons shipped to USA.

New England WASPs love to offer half a Lorna Doone with a thimbleful of Old Sack Sherry as a delicious snack to famished guests.

I liked Lorna Doones as a kid. The MOST boring cookie EVA was Nilla Wafers.

I love to put prune yogurt between two of them and eat them slowly while thinking of my late wife Agnes.

My WASP grandmother would offer us Nilla Wafers, when we were kids. I would have killed for Lorna Doone’s.

I used to love Lorna Doones, but haven't had them in many many years. Didn't know they still made them.

Will there be a rebranding movie tie in launching them as Lorna Dunes?

by Anonymousreply 3105/24/2020

I love shortbread cookies, but they have to be made with butter, unlike LDs. The only thing I might consider using them for is as a crust base (instead of graham crackers) for a pie or bar cookies. Although I think Nilla wafers would be preferable for that purpose.

by Anonymousreply 3205/24/2020

One of the characters in the novel CROWNED HEADS is named Lorna Doone. She first got boys in grade school interested in her by keeping a box of the cookies on her desk.

She’s an aging, down on her luck B movie star who goes to Mexico on vacation, and gets obsessed with a study, native hotel employee.

The movie FEDORA (1978) is based on a different section of the book.

The best supermarket shortbread cookies I was served had a blue (?) windmill on the packaging. But they were squiggly; they did not LOOK like windmills.

This was QUITE a while ago.

by Anonymousreply 3505/25/2020

I usually stick to Walker’s if I’m buying shortbread. Much better than Lorna Doone’s.

Walkers and the Chessman lack the smooth, buttery taste of the Lornas.

R37. Seriously??? Walkers is just made from flour, butter, sugar, and salt. Lorna Doone’s have no butter, and the ingredients are like a chemistry experiment.

I prefer the more exciting Liza Doone cookies.

When I was in the "hospital" one of our afternoon snacks was Lorna Doones and Guida's chocolate milk.

Ugh, even before I spotted Mitt, the first thing that came to mind was “Damn Mormons!” How is it that even in a simple family picture they ooze Mormoness and what exactly is it, the smug self righteousness? “We don’t drink or swear, we don’t rat our hair, we get ill from one cigarette and we don’t imbibe in the devil’s caffeine!” If these cookies are their favorites, them I’m all for them meeting a speedy end.

I want a shortbread cookie now.

Or 12.

by Anonymousreply 6305/26/2020

For all their chemical makeup, I still like Lorna Doone cookies, although mainly as a last resort if such were needed. Pepperidge Farm has a new butter shortbread cookie out called "Dublin" and those are pretty tasty. For R34, I think Chessmen are worth buying at least once if you can to see what you think. They beat the shit out of Milano, that's for sure.

Michelle Duggar (far left), mother of 19, seems to inject creativity into her hair stylings. No, she's not Mormon; she's Independent Baptist. However, the point stands that a Godly woman can bear children in quick and constant succession and also pay attention to her looks and her hair.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
