I've been staying in Kendal in The Lake District for 4 nights and I don't recall buying Kendal Mint Cake before for myself. I might have tried some in the past because when I tried some today it tasted quite familiar. It was a translucent white minty bar that was brittle enough to break but biting it revealed it to be soft enough to easily chew and break down because it is made mostly of sugar. The mint flavour wasn't overwhelming, just pleasant sort of similar strength to an After Eight mint if you know what that is. I was trying the white bar but there is also a brown bar and a chocolate covered bar. I can say that I have eaten Kendal Mint Cake in Kendal now.
