If you’re looking for the ideal accompaniment for a nice piece of cheddar cheese, you won’t go wrong with Walkers Fine Oatcakes. These delightfully simple biscuits are very light in flavour, which makes them the perfect canvas on which to apply some stronger flavours.
They’re made from just a few simple, pure ingredients. Rolled Scottish oats, some oil, powdered milk, and a little salt and baking soda are all there is to it. Consequently they don’t taste of much, but that’s exactly the point of oatcakes – their job is to fade into the background and provide support for other, bolder tastes. It’s an important role which Walkers Fine Oatcakes tackle with aplomb. Naturally they work especially well with the robustly flavoured cheeses of their native Scotland, but their light, nutty flavour makes them exceptionally versatile. They work just as well with something crumbly and acidic like feta, or even with something entirely different like pesto.
Being made from rolled Scottish oats, rather than other grains such as wheat or rye, they have a distinctive texture compared with other types of savoury biscuits. Bite into one and you’ll experience a satisfying crunch, but without the crumbling that you’ll often get with cream crackers or crispbreads. This makes them the ideal base layer for a quick snack when you don’t want to get crumbs on your clothes!
Walkers Fine Oatcakes are a little thinner than their other product in our range, Highland Oatcakes. They’re also baked without the addition of sugar, which means they’re slightly less sweet. You’re sure to prefer one or the other, but if you’re not sure, why not try both?
