McVities Shortbread Bites

OK, it’s probably stretching it a bit far to call these biscuits a diet product. And they’re not. But what’s different about these delicious all butter Scottish shortbread biscuits is they’re baked into tiny bite sized cubes. More and more products are coming out in bite sized portions which is great news for dieters (as long as you don’t eat the entire pack in one go!)

Shortbread is enormously high in calories at around 100 calories per biscuit. But there aren’t many of us who would have the willpower to break a piece off instead of taking a whole biscuit. But with these tiny bites, you can take one or two out of the packet, enjoy eating them and not worry about consuming loads of extra calories.

These have been found in Sainsbury's so far.

Nutritional Information: Per biscuit (4.5g): 24 calories, 0.3g protein, 2.6g carbohydrates, 0.7g sugar, 1.4g fat, 0.9g saturated fat, 0.4g fibre, 0.13g salt.


  1. I can't find these shortbread bites in my local sainsburys or asda in east ham London and my mum can't find these in stratford east London either. Does anyone know the nearest stockests to me ?

    1. Hi Shelly

      They may be out of production as I can't find them either. You could try M&S Mini Shortbread fingers at 25 cals each or Sainsbury Mini Shortbread fingers at 27 cals each.
