Romney's Kendal Mint Cake was recently featured in a Wilderness England blog titled 'The Best Snacks to Eat While You're Hiking'... Whilst we may be somewhat biased, we believe that our Kendal Mint Cake bars are very deserving of a place on this list, as our products have been fueling adventure and expeditions for over a century. Please enjoy a small extract from the blog below.
"Getting out into the hills, exploring a new trail, and making the most of a fine day, hiking is one of life’s greatest pleasures. However you choose to enjoy a day of walking, preparation is key. One of our favourite parts of prep is choosing our snacks for the journey ahead, but it can be difficult to ensure you’re picking the best fuel for your hike. We are not nutritionists or medical professionals here at Wilderness England, but we’ve used our extensive experience with food to round up our list of the best snacks to eat while you’re hiking."
"Kendal Mint Cake is a classic hiking snack, and it was invented right here in England in 1869. This sugary peppermint treat accompanied Sir Ernest Shackleton on his Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition, and Sir Edmund Hillary brought it on the first successful ascent of Mount Everest. Numerous climbers and mountaineers have kept a trusty bar in their pocket over the last 150 years. Do as the pros do and keep a bar of Kendal Mint Cake close at hand for an energy boost during your hikes."
