We’ve covered the standard shortcake, now it’s their fruity cousin. Whereas the normal shortcake is rectangular, fruit shortcakes are rounded with spiky edges across. They are not just a shortcake with some fruit added on – they are different in terms of constitution and spread of ingredients.
A good biscuit to have with a brew but equally as good as just a snack for an energy boost.

Are fruit shortcakes worth the syns?
With 1.9 syns each and a syns per gram ratio of 0.23 a fruit shortcake is on the lighter side of the biscuits. However, it is still a biscuit which is unhealthy at its core and the fruit aspect is not enough to turn the tide towards a decent health boost. That being said, they’re great for dunking, they are better than most at giving some nutrition and if it’s your favourite then who cares?
