This page is about the cookie. There is also a movie named Ginger Snaps.
Ginger Snap biscuits are a type of cookie made with dried powdered ginger root, anise and other spices. The biscuits are very hard. They are sold worldwide and have a long history, probably dating back to medieval fairs.

I believe that the ginger snap if extremely similar to-- if not the same as-- what used to be called the ginger nut biscuit. "Snaps" are probably the more modern, or westernized version.
