Romney's Kendal Mint Cake

Romney's Kendal Mint Cake



Romney's Kendal Mint Cake was the first Mint Cake to be successfully carried to the top of Mount Everest on 29th May 1953 this being the first successful expedition to the summit.

This is a bar of edible mint biscuit, ideal to sustain the most tiring expedition.

Romney's were approached by the 1953 expedition to Everest, to see whether he could supply mint cake to them within 7 days. Sir Edmund Hillary and Sirdar Tensing ate this mint cake on top of Everest as they gazed at the countryside down below. Tensing also left some to appease his 'gods'. This happening naturally increased sales of mint cake to hikers and climbers and visitors to the Lake District.

A member of the successful Everest Expedition wrote - "It was easily the most popular item on our high altitude ration - our only criticism was that we did not have enough of it."

  1. Good boostReview by

  2. It Does The JobReview by
    This isn't your usual choccybar. It's to give a sugar-boost from the minimum storage space. The mint gives an edge to what would otherwise be a sugary-sickly taste. It's EDC for, well ... everyday. (Posted on )
  3. NiceReview by
    These are quite nice mint flavoured bars. The peppermint flavour is strong and I thought it was similar to Trebor Extra Strong mints. The texture is firm and it is actually quite "heavy".

    Really quite nice as a once in a while type of snack but not something I could eat a lot of.
