“These iconic cookies were originally made to send to the ANZACs (Australian and New Zealand Army Corps) serving in Gallipoli. ANZAC Day-25 April-is probably Australia's most important national occasion. It marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War. ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps.”
