September - Kendal Torchlight Festival, 2023 County Show & Family Business Award Visit

Kendal Torchlight Festival

A huge thank you to Kendal College Performing Arts students who chose to showcase Romney's Kendal Mint Cake in this year's torchlight festival. The theme of this year's festival was Kendal's past and present and we were proud to see our world-famous energy bar feature heavily within the parade.
Some college students also portrayed the 'Kendal Mint Cake Miners', who informed audiences about the history of Kendal Mint Cake whilst also putting a comedic spin on the act, persuading viewers that it was collected from a local mine!
It's great to see students taking a real interest in the history of the town and our brand. If you would like to learn more about the history of Romney's Kendal Mint Cake, please visit -

2023 County Show

“The 2023 Westmorland County Show is the first time we have had a trade stand at an event of this size so we really didn’t know what to expect going into it. I’m thrilled to say that it was a very successful week for us and it was great to see so many familiar faces! We also really enjoyed introducing Romney’s Kendal Mint Cake to so many new people. Our hand made fudge bags we’re also extremely popular and the butter fudge samples went down a treat! Thank you to everyone who visited our trade stand and for supporting our 4th generation family business.” - Paula Barron, Romney’s Sales Director
A special thank you to Dave from Mint Drinks who helped us with the setup and organisation of our stand. It was great to see so many local businesses at the show, showcasing the very best of the area!

Family Business Awards Visit

In September we had the pleasure of welcoming Sue Howorth back to our factory to discuss our plans for the future and everything that has gone on since winning the People's Choice Cumbria Award in May. Sue is part of the Family Business Community and the advice she is able to provide to a business such as ours has been truly invaluable. Since our conversation, we have been able to make key connections within the industry that will help with our growth and allow for expansion into new markets.

We look forward to sharing more of our plans for the future with you all shortly and once again would like to thank all of our stockists and customers for their support over the years!
