“They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old; Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning, We Will Remember Them.”
The original Anzac biscuit was known as an ‘Anzac wafer’ or ’tile’ and was part of the rations given to the ANZAC soldiers. They were included instead of bread because they had a much longer shelf life. During the war the soldiers wives, mothers and family members would send their loved ones care packages and ration packs to help sustain them both in both body and in spirit. With so many variations on the ANZAC biscuits these days there is so much to choose from. Check out our Gut Friendly ANZAC below.
