Uncle Joe's Mint Balls - The Premium English Mint
Ellen Santus made her first batch of 'Uncle Joe's Mint Balls' in 1898. They were produced in the kitchen of her small terraced house in Wigan, North West England. She could not have envisaged how popular her recipe would become over 100 years later.
The secret recipe which has been passed down through the generations still remains a closely guarded secret and the product is still manufactured in the traditional way, on open gas fires. The sweets contain only three natural ingredients and are free from artificial colourings and flavourings.
At a time when most confectionery is mass produced it is refreshing to find a traditional sweet that is 'pure and good' reminding us of how sweets used to taste.
Ingredients: Pure Cane Sugar, Oil of Peppermint and Cream of Tartar.
Made in England.
