Yes, they are pink and red and they're called Iced Vo Vo's. Another "classic" Australian biscuit made by Arnotts. It was first made in 1906 and is still going strong. Our previous Prime Minister, Kevin Rudd, mentioned them in his 2007 election victory speech, jokingly urging his team to "have a strong cup of tea with an iced Vo Vo before getting to work". This biscuit consists of a relatively soft biscuit base that is topped with fairly thick, pink fondant icing, with a strip of raspberry jam down the middle, which actually contains raspberries. It is then liberally dusted with dessicated coconut.One biscuit connoisseur has said: "they are a fussy biscuit, with too much going on.....the coconut, the jam, the icing all fight for supremacy on the palette, whilst the rather soft base lacks any backbone to give texture".
For me, they are just a very sweet and rather girly and pretty biscuit ( even tho my husband loves them ) and go beautifully with Jasmine tea. Wishing you all a sweet Tuesday.If you would like to join us for tea visit Art In Red Wagons here
