National Gingersnap Day is celebrated on 1st July every year to enjoy this sweet and savoury treat. 

Though the origin of the holiday remains unknown, it is believed that gingersnap cookies originated in 13th century Germany and served as the German Christmas version of gingerbread cookies.

Gingersnaps are cookies mainly made from molasses, cloves, ginger, cinnamon and brown sugar. Basically, it is a combination of sweet and spicy.

They are a healthier alternative to other cookies as they are lower in calories.

Gingersnap is also called a ginger nut or ginger biscuit, which is a popular sweet and savory snack flavored with ginger.

Gingersnaps are round, plain, and are made with powdered ginger, cinnamon, molasses, brown sugar, and nutmeg. 

Gingersnaps in America is a lot more like a sugar cookie than British gingerbread. These cookies are often complemented with a cup of tea, coffee, hot chocolate, milk, or even with ice cream and yogurt.

Gingersnaps are found to be healthier than other cookies because of their anti-inflammatory properties, the power to stimulate blood circulation, fights with heart disease, and other illnesses.
