Soda Biscuits/ Hardtack

Lenox637 | Oct 5, 2009 09:14 AM

I grew up in Fiji and my Mom would get us hard dry biscuits for snacks. The thing i remember most about them is that they were very hard and a little fuller in flavor than saltines. My Mom called them "soda biscuits" but a friend of hers called them "hardtack', as in the hard biscuits that were bagged for long sea voyages during the age of sail. Where can one find these in the states, or must one order from beyond the borders?
