History of the Anzac Biscuit
It is known that non-perishable variations of Scottish oatmeal biscuits were made at home and sent to soldiers of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) in World War I, via sea with no refrigeration. It is interesting to note that the Australian War Memorial in Canberra suggests that they were not actually named ANZAC Biscuits until after the World War I, when they were actually made and sold as fund-raisers for returned soldiers.
