My father and his best friend "Uncle" John used to go on walking holidays in the Lake District quite frequently. Dad always brought back some Kendal Mint cake so, when I came across this in the Supermarket here, I couldn't resist it. I bought the brown one which was always my favourite.
I know that it is 100% sugar and I shouldn't really be eating it (it is still in the wrapper). I will most likely try it on one of our walks.
I googled Kendal Mint cake and discovered that Sir Edmund Hillary and Sirdar Tensing took it with them when they scaled Everest. To find out what a Kendal Mint cake is see HERE
Had my diabetic eye check yesterday and was told to keep going on as I am as there is no sign of damage to my eyes so that is good.
