Sweets & Chocolates

Homemade sweets and chocolates have been a feature of Cumbrian life for hundreds of years. The arrival of sugar and cocoa imports from South America and the West Indies at the West Coast seaports of Whitehaven, Maryport and Workington ensured plentiful supplies to our artisan confectioners and chocolatiers to create an industry still thriving today.

Famous brands, such as Kendal Mintcake, continues to be produced by the George Romney family, who also make a delicious range of handmade fudge and treacle toffee. Not to be outdone, specialist chocolate makers, such as Grasmere Chocolate Cottage and Annette’s Lakeland Kitchen, who lovingly produce a simply gorgeous range of handmade fancy chocolates and truffles – a perfect treat for you or a gift for someone special.
