About the Product - Cynthia Foreman's Signature Almond and Lemon All butter shortbread cookies are made with the highest quality of ingredients, with no artificial ingredients or added preservatives. We are confident that the mouthwatering taste of our all butter shortbread cookies will prove that one bite won't be enough.  Each consumer is greeted with her warm smile pictured on each bag.  She wants customers to easily identify her brand from others on the shelf.  And yes, there is a story behind her decision to put her picture on each product. The first retail store to accept her products' placed them right next to another wholesaler who made a similar product. The storekeeper explained to her that competition is good business and since she was selling well, she agreed.  A problem arose when her product was sold out and more than a few customers picked up her competitor's product, and, after tasting the difference between the two, began to return the competitor's products thinking she had changed her recipe. "Well, I will just have to put my picture on my products so that customers can identify my products from my competitors" said Ms. Foreman.  It worked so well that customers have now come to identify her picture with the taste of an excellent product.  And that is why you will always see Ms. Foreman's picture on all her products.
