Nairn's Oatcakes Review

A few weeks ago, alright maybe a month ago at this point, I was contacted by Nairn's Oatcakes asking if I was interested in trying their product.  Free food? Sign me up!

 Yum!

Nairn's is Scottish company and they only use wholegrain oats that are grown near the Scottish Borders.  The climate in this area allows for perfect ripening of the grains and the farmers do not need to use insecticides.

Nairn's products are all natural and contain zero trans fat.  In addition, their products do not contain GMOs and are wheat free.  (They do have some gluten free products, but the items I received were not gluten free).

I was able to try two kinds of oat cookies: mixed berries and stem ginger.

Of the two I enjoyed the mixed berries oat cookies better than the stem ginger.  The flavor of the stem ginger cookies was really intense and it actually started to make my eyes water!  Mike said that's why he had a glass of milk with his, that's right Mike stole some of my cookies.

 Caught red handed!

In addition to the two boxes of cookies I was also sent a few recipes that would be perfect to use with their oat crackers.  I wish that they sold Nairn's products in Wegmans because I really liked them!

What is your favorite kind of cookie or cracker?

I was sent this product for the purposes of review and I was not compensated in any way.  The thoughts expressed within this post are, as always, my own.

  4. These sounds great! I love the sound of those flavours.
    My favourite cookies are Mcvities Digestives which are basically just a plain wheat cookie but they taste awesome! I wish they'd bring out flavoured versions like these Nairns.
