Quiggins Kendal Mint Cake

Post by cap174 » Sat May 11, 2019 3:01 pm

Hello everyone, I was looking through my collection and I found this 'Quiggins Kendal Mint Cake'. I got on eBay a while ago for practically nothing. The seller didn't say much, only that it was from a British ration pack 'from the 50s to the 90s'. I was wondering, does anyone know what era/ where/ what ration this is from?

Thank you!
On an impossible mission to get every ration ever :D

I found this blog post with that brand of Kendal Mint Cake and it has an paper insert that dates the ration pack menu to 95/96:

So that said, if the menu sheet does indeed come from the ration in the picture, then those were the early GP ration packs. So, your mint cake might have come from a 95/96 early GP ration pack.

Just a note, I had some from that era and they had a different brand mint cake in them...
