Anzac biscuits

Anzac biscuit has long been associated with the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) established in World War 1.

It has been claimed the biscuits were sent by wives to soldiers abroad because the ingredients do not spoil easily and the biscuits kept well during naval transportation.
