The Best ANZAC Cookies

ANZAC day is coming up on April 25. As a day of remembrance, the cookie is eaten to honour the Australian and New Zealand troops who ate the biscuits while on the front line during the Great War. However, luckily for us, the cookies we eat today are nothing like the biscuits the soldiers ate, all those years ago! Those biscuits were reportedly rock hard and tooth-breaking, so much so that the diggers were often forced to crush them up before eating. They were nothing like the delicious, soft and chewy oat biscuits we celebrate with today. 

Speaking of delicious ANZAC biscuits, here are a few we think you might like:

Crave Anzac Cookies

Crave Cookies have made a (now) traditional ANZAC cookie from oats, coconut, and golden syrup. An oldie but a goodie. Each box contains 12 cookies and has a shelf life of 3 months. Perfect in the lead up to the memorial day.

Silly Yaks Anzac Cookies (Gluten Free)

The Silly Yaks ANZAC cookie has taken a modern twist on tradition, by making their biscuit available to be consumed by those who have are coeliacs or gluten-intolerant.  Available in sealed packs of 18 x 10 units, the cookie is gluten-free, wheat free, dairy free, egg free, nut free, yeast free and fructose friendly – phew! It’s certain to be a crowd-pleaser with those who have allergies and intolerances.

Byron Bay Cafe ANZAC Cookies

Byron Bay has done it again by creating a perfectly mouth-watering, crisp ANZAC cookie that is available in 12 units per box at a weight of 60g. A slightly heftier cookie, this cookie is perfect for those who like a bit of bulk to their bite. The cookie is now available in the Loose Café Cookies as well as the ‘Single Wrapped Cookie’ range and is sure to be in demand come April 25.

What do you think? Which type of ANZAC biscuit do you think will be a hit? No matter what type of cookie you pick it'll be a special way to remember troops who are fighting across the world.

We’d also like to take this opportunity to announce Mother’s Day is coming up on May 14. So, stay tuned as we roll out the latest sweet treats and delicious chocolates that are going to melt hearts across the country!
