EARLY QUIGGIN’S EXPEDITIONS

“It seemed to be converted into energy almost immediately and we were able to undergo very strenuous activity for long periods without further nutrition.
It was a very essential part of our diet.

I would certainly choose your Mint Cake as the main basis for energy production in the field, in any further expeditions. I know of no other food that would satisfy the exacting and difficult requirements of high altitude climbing so well.”

George B. Spenceley (F.R.O.S.)  Nepal Himalayan Expedition 1957

“At exactly noon, I would take out the mint cake ration, break it into portions and place them on top of the sledge load.  These portions, I would have one at a time, one every five minutes.  This gave me enough sustenance to last until lunchtime.”

Geoff Somers   Trans-Antarctica Expedition 1989/90

“It was under these extremely cold conditions that we appreciated the real sustaining value of Kendal Mint Cake.”

M. Lonsdale The Cambridge Afghanistan Expedition 1959
