New Zealand Biscuits: A Cultural Delight

New Zealand biscuits are a cultural delight that has been enjoyed for many years. Biscuits, in new Zealand, are called “cookies,” and they come in many different shapes and sizes. Some of the more popular include chocolate chip cookies, gingerbread men, shortbread cookies, and macaroons.

What are New Zealand biscuits?

They consist of flour, butter, sugar, vanilla essence, and boiling water, which is cool before being shaped into rounds or fingers. A common variation in the recipe also includes milk powder.

They have been described as ‘the best thing about New Zealand’ with many people claiming that they cannot live without them! However, these biscuits are not just famous in new Zealand. Still, they’re also high in demand overseas too with companies exporting their products worldwide, including America, Japan, and Australia!

Some of the most popular new Zealand biscuits include:

  • Pineapple Lumps (a chewy, pineapple-flavored sweet covered in chocolate)
  • Jaffas (chocolate-covered orange candy with a hard shell coating)
  • Chocolate Fish (similar to M&M’s but are shaped like fish and taste similar to dark chocolate)
  • Buzz biscuits (honey and oat flavored biscuit with a chocolate coating)

There are so many different types of new Zealand biscuits that it would be impossible to list them all, but these are some of the most popular ones!
