Found Good Grieves at the Toronto Christmas Market a couple years ago and bought a package. They are fantastic! Spent the next year searching and finally found online. Joined their subscription service (unfortunately recently shut down over COVID) .
I will continue to order occasionally off the web site.
HINT – heat them up for 15 seconds or so in the microwave!

“After tasting Good Grieves Shortbread at the Toronto Christmas market, I realized that not all shortbread is equal. The taste and texture made each bite decadent beyond belief.“

Our Story

In 1990, the Grieve family brought their irresistible shortbread recipe from Renfrew, Scotland to Waterloo, Canada. Their handcrafted shortbread quickly became a tradition within the family, and a favourite amongst everyone that tasted it. The tradition was founded by Alex and Ingrid Grieve, who sold the shortbread at Christmas time to try to help with the family’s bills and to buy gifts for their three children. Sadly, in 2013 Alex Grieve passed away from a long, ten-year battle against cancer. The rest of the family—Ingrid Grieve, daughter Krista, and son Scott—are now carrying on the legacy of their delicious buttery shortbread, which is still made by hand with all of the love that the recipe has always had.
