Royale Kendal Mint Cake
A classic from my own childhood when climbing mountains with my Dad!
According to legend, a chance accident happened when a confectioner, intending to make glacier mints, took his eye off the pan and found the mixture had started to 'grain' and become cloudy. The Kendal Mint Cake was mainly sold to the locals and sent via Kendal's Railway Station, once a week, to other parts in the North East of England. The potential of Kendal Mint Cake as an energy supplier was recognised when used on the 1914-1917 Transarctic Expedition under the command of Sir E Shackleton and the 1st Everest Expedition. This happening naturally increased sales of mint cake to hikers and climbers and visitors to the Lake District. Now made in the traditional way under the Royale brand.
✓ Suitable for vegans

Plastic-free! The sweets are popped into colourful 'Candy' bags (food-grade) and will be posted in a separate box/parcel to any soaps/bath bombs etc to prevent the sweets absorbing any perfumes from the cosmetics.
In the Autumn will be getting some festive boxes, as this will make lovely little gifts. There is also a plan to source some colourful cardboard cones - to make plastic-free party cones
