Joseph Wiper is said to have produced the first batch of Kendal Mint Cake by mistake in 1869, whilst making a batch of clear mints he took his eye off the pan and the mixture had become cloudy…Kendal Mint Cake was born. Wiper’s continued to produce Mint Cake till 1987 when they were bought out by George Romney’s who still make the Wiper’s brand to its original recipe to this day.
George Romney’s first produced Kendal Mint Cake in 1918, the company name came from the famous 18th century artist that had lived in the Cumbrian town of Kendal. Kendal Mint Cake was seen as a great energy source that would remain stable in extreme conditions, because of this it became a staple of many early 20th century expeditions but it’s most famous moment came when Sir Edmund Hillary and Sirdar Tenzing carried it on the first successful summit of Mount Everest on the 29th May 1953. Since then it has gone from strength to strength and remains a firm favourite of adventurers worldwide.
