Manufactured by GEORGE ROMNEY, LTD. IN KENDAL The Gateway to the English Lakes.
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.
Romney's were approached by the 1953 expedition to Everest, to see whether they could supply Mint Cake to them within 7 days. This had to be packed into high altitude packs for inclusion in the supplies to be sent ahead, hence the need for haste. Fortunately they had sufficient stock to meet their needs, and the staff willingly gave up their sweet ration coupons to comply with the law. Sir Edmund Hilary and Sirdar Tensing ate this Mint Cake on top of Everest as they gazed at the countryside far below them. Since then Kendal Mint Cake has become a firm favourite with hikers, 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."
