Tunnock's. What else needs saying? - The Great British Shop

Tunnock's. What else needs saying?

Tunnock's Wafers are a popular confectionery product that is made and sold in Scotland. They are made of a thin, crispy biscuit base that is coated in chocolate, and are known for their distinctive packaging, which features a red and gold wrapper with the Tunnock's logo.

Tunnock's Wafers were first produced by the Tunnock's company in 1952, and they have been a popular snack food in Scotland and beyond ever since. The company is still family-owned and operated, and its products are made using traditional methods and high-quality ingredients.

In addition to Tunnock's Wafers, the company also produces a range of other confectionery products, including Tunnock's Teacakes, Caramel Wafers, and Snowballs. These products are also widely popular in Scotland and are known for their distinctive flavour and packaging.

Tunnock's Wafers have gained a cult following and have become a symbol of Scottish culture. They are often served at events and gatherings and are widely available in supermarkets and convenience stores throughout the UK.

Established in 2019.

Our Halifax location is our first in Atlantic Canada, our family business stems from our chain of British Pride Bakery locations in Ontario. We opted to continue our growth in the Maritimes under the name in which our online shop operates to enhance our reputation online as well as add our own mark on the brick & mortar stage. We are Canada's largest chain of family owned British specialty stores and we've built our reputation on quality, service and authenticity.


Being an expat in Canada, I understand the need for British foods for fellow expats, generational Brits and British enthusiasts. The nostalgia and emotion tied to British products can all but eliminate homesickness, a simple sausage roll for lunch can hit the spot like nothing else and comfort foods people grew up with or come to love through parents, grandparents or trips to the UK are brilliant to have so easily accessible locally or delivered to your doorstep anywhere in Canada. Being able to bring authentic British style baked goods to the market is a great feeling and it's fantastic having the entire shop at my disposal when any homesickness might sneak up on me! Nothing a Cornish pasty and a shandy won't fix!
