Slush Puppie was created by J & J Snack Foods in 1974 and boasts two major components – a special syrup mixed with water and then frozen.

Original owners, Will Radcliff, his sister Phyllis and their mum Thelma, came up with the name while sitting on their front porch in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Starting out as a tiny business operating out of their home, it swelled in size and grew to sales of £20million per year.

Will sold the company to Cadbury Schweppes for £13million in 2000, before New Jersey food manufacturer J & J Snack Foods acquired Slush Puppie in 2006.

How do you make Anzac biscuits?

The biscuits are made from very simple ingredients, and don’t contain egg.

It is said when they were being widely made around the First World War, eggs were scarce so the recipe today reflects what was available at the time.

And the ingredients allowed them to be transported over long distances without spoiling.

The golden biscuits vary from crispy to chewy, and are sold in most stores across Australia and New Zealand.

Making them yourself gives you not only warm and fresh biscuits, but you have the satisfaction of eating something home-made.

Anzac biscuits are made of porridge oats, desiccated coconut, plain flour, caster sugar, butter, golden syrup and bicarbonate of soda.

BBC Good Food shared a recipe, where they say to preheat the oven to 180c/fan or 160/gas 4.

Recipe for Anzac biscuits

85g porridge oat 85g desiccated coconut 100g plain flour 100g caster sugar 100g butter, plus extra butter for greasing 1 tbsp golden syrup 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda Melt the butter in a small pan and add the golden syrup. Add the bicarbonate of soda to 2 tbsp of boiling water, then stir the syrup mixture into the butter mixture. Put the oats, coconut and flour into a bowl, and make a well in the middle Pour in the syrup / butter mixture, and stir the ingredients in.

What’s the history of Anzac biscuits?

Standing for the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps, it commemorates the day Australian and New Zealand forces landed at Gallipoli, Turkey, during the First World War.

It remembers their sacrifice as the 1915 Gallipoli landing, also referred to as the battle of Anzac Cove, resulted in a great loss of life.

Anzac Day was made official on April 25 the following year, 1916.

It initially started as a day to remember the soldiers who died in that conflict, but it was later expanded to all Australian and New Zealand soldiers who served in all war and peacekeeping operations, past and present.

Both countries observe this national day, and as well as eating the biscuits also drink ‘gunfire coffee’, coffee with rum in it, and play card game two-up.
