A Garibaldi biscuit is not the most popular but it is one of the most unique as it contains currants baked between two slices of soft biscuit – it is a savoury option that’s a bit bigger and one that is rarely dunked in tea.
It is one of the oldest biscuits, being created in 1861 after the buscuit’s namesake made a visit to England in 1854. The Garibaldi is a type of biscuit rather than a brand name so anyone can make their own version of it and sell it.
