Welcome to World Biscuit Day
National Biscuit Day is a chance to celebrate the humble biscuit. You might be surprised to hear that biscuits are recorded as an essential source of nutrition to many different people and civilisations throughout history.
Biscuits are not a modern invention and originated as a way of making flour and other ingredients last longer so that they could be taken on long journeys. They were a staple on long sailing expeditions for the Ancient Egyptians and kept many a Roman soldier energised during their conquests of different lands.
So whether you like Bourbons, Custard Creams, Cookies or chocolate coated digestives here is a day to celebrate your favourite biscuit.
