Open a packet of handmade Irrewarra biscuits and take in the aromas of golden syrup, coconut and rolled oats. Our crunchy and buttery versions of the classic Australian ‘Anzac’ biscuit are much-loved across the nation.
The story of the Anzac biscuit is prominent in Australian folklore. The biscuit gained its name when wives, girlfriends and womens’ groups baked biscuits to send to Australian soldiers abroad during World War I. The recipe was based on the Scottish oat biscuit, but it soon became uniquely Australian with its signature golden syrup flavour. These days bakers must be approved by the Department of Veteran’s Affairs to produce an ‘official’ Anzac biscuit, and Irrewarra is proud to hold this accreditation.
Our biscuits are hand-baked weekly to a tried-and-true recipe, without any preservatives or additives. You’ll notice that each biscuit is completely unique and displays subtle size and shape variations due to their handmade nature.
So whether you prefer the classic Anzac, our dark-chocolate dipped version or a crunchy oat biscuit studded with melt-in-your-mouth Australian macadamia nuts, you’ll find our range of handmade biscuits crisp, satisfying and completely addictive.
