The Original Energy Bar
There is a reason why Kendal Mint Cake remains popular amongst not only mountaineers and hill walkers, but also cyclists and runners. The cake is high in glucose which can be rapidly digested and is a fantastic energy-boosting source.
Famously, the mint cake has been to the top of the world. In 1975, Sir Chris Bonington took Quiggin’s Kendal Mint Cake on his successful ascent of Mount Everest.
The ingredients of the mint cakes make them the perfect re-energising food for high altitudes. Your body craves sugar as it climbs to a higher elevation. Our cakes are easy to digest and give the body the fuel it requires to carry on.
And the strong peppermint flavour? Loved by many, the flavour has a purpose too. Our taste buds are dulled at higher altitudes, so the mint flavour is the perfect tasty treat to eat on a mountain-side.
Not only has our product climbed to the earth’s highest heights, but it has also travelled down into its depths. Again, in 1975, our mint cake was taken down the world’s deepest pothole in Papua New Guinea.
