Quiggins Kendal Mint Cake


Borne in the small Cumbrian town of Kendal, Mint Cake has become known throughout the world.  It accompanied the first expedition to reach the summit of Mount Everest and its reputation has continued to grow since.

As well as being enjoyed by many as simply a tasty treat, it continues to be sought by those that involved in endurance activities.  Although very popular amongst the mountaineering and hill walking community, it is also used widely by cyclists and runners. Whenever energy levels are depleted,  Mint Cake comes to the rescue!

What makes Quiggin’s Mint Cake stand above its rivals is the use of a special blend of bespoke peppermint oils in its manufacture giving its own unique flavour.
