Crawford's Garibaldi


Product Description

  • Garibaldi biscuits consist of currants squished between two thin rectangles of biscuit, making a crisp, fairly hard, sweet yet fruity biscuit. Sometimes known colloquially as 'squashed fly' biscuits (or 'fly traps' in New Zealand) the robust nature of Garibaldi biscuits makes them ideal with tea or coffee. They can handle the moisture. Whilst the biscuits are named after Italian General Giuseppe Garibaldi who (famously?) made a visit to South Shields in 1854, I have no idea WHY it's named after him. The biscuit was first made in Bermondsey in 1861. None of these things seem related. History aside, they are fantastic biscuits. Reminiscient of Eccles cakes (although slightly less sweet, flatter and harder) they bring satisfying texture and fruity flavour to every teatime.
