No ANZAC Biscuits at Gallipoli.

The origins of that great Australian institution the ANZAC biscuit are unknown and they were not in soldiers’ rations during the Great War, says academic Dr Matthew Bailey.

There was, however, a biscuit based on rolled oats, sugar, flour and butter that was popular at the time. Its magic ingredient was golden syrup which replaced eggs as the binding agent. This produced not only a tasty and nutritious biscuit but one that could last a long time.

Some families may have sent the treat to their loved ones abroad, but it was not until after the war that these biscuits gained the moniker “ANZAC” and began to be commercially made. Since that time Australian troops abroad have enjoyed ANZAC biscuits, either in ration packs or courtesy of parcels from home.

We should also remember that like pavlova and Russell Crowe, New Zealanders also make a claim for the ANZAC Biscuit!
