We, as a country, have been betrayed numerous times in the last decade. We’ve been blindsided by our politicians, lost numerous well-deserved world cup titles and we’ve been through the torture of Allen’s deciding to get rid of the green frog.
But nothing compares to this betrayal.
You see, Arnott’s, Australia’s most trusted biscuit brand, has been lying to us for years. YEARS.
Well, not really. We’ve just never looked closely enough.
Their beloved biscuit, the Ginger Nut, perfect to dunk/soak/lather in a hot coffee on a cold winter night, actually has a different recipe for each state.
Yep, those of us in NSW are eating completely different biscuits to those in SA, WA, TAS, VIC, QLD. But not you, ACT, no Ginger Nuts for ACT, apparently.
If you take a quick squiz at their website and head to the 'Plain Biscuits' category, you can see Ginger Nuts are the only biscuit to have different variations in ingredients between each state.
The reason? Blogger ChiliKebab claims it's because Arnott's used to have bakeries all over Australia and so the Ginger Nut recipe varied a little from state to state.
