Kendal Mintcake White Large 170g
Beloved of mountain walkers, perfect as emergency rations in your rucksack!
According to legend, a Kendal confectioner, intending to make glacier mints, took his eye off the cooking pan for a minute and then, resuming his task, noticed that the mixture had started to 'grain' and become cloudy, instead of clear. When poured out, the result was Mint Cake.
The business realised the potential of Kendal Mint Cake as an energy supplier and supplied the 1914-1917 Transarctic Expedition under the command of Sir Ernest Shackleton, as well as the 1st Everest Expedition. These two expeditions gave Mint Cake a whole new image.
For orders below £30 it's currently a very reasonable £3.50 charge.
