Mmm there is nothing that says "Welsh" more than a traditional homemade treat of a Welsh cake. Popular since the 19th century, they remain one of the treasures of Wales to this day!
This special bar is a unique and patriotic treasure, the classic melt in your mouth, Wickedly Welsh moreishly milk chocolate bar infused with a pinch of nostalgia, a lightly spiced and truly delightful treat that will have you licking your lips and wanting more! The fusion of traditional sweet cinnamon spice with ground nutmeg and fresh ginger adds a touch of warmth to your palate, we can recommend this as the perfect afternoon snack and accompaniment to your cuppa!
Welsh Cakes were traditionally made by the lady of the household as a treat to serve at afternoon tea, and were also given to children with their school lunches. At one time they would be eaten regularly in farmhouses and cottages the length and breadth of Wales, and became a mainstay of the miner's lunch box.
They have gone by a few different names since their invention including “cage bach” or " pice ar y mâen" (cake on a stone) and they are also known as "Griddle Cakes", "Welsh Tea Cakes" and "Welsh Miner Cakes". The local names given to the cakes were usually derived from the Welsh name for the bakestone, and these included tishan ar y mân and tishen lechwan. They varied in size from small, round cakes to a single cake as big as the bakestone itself.
Welsh cakes are also traditionally made for celebrations and special occasions so this bar makes the perfect gift for that Welsh friend who left this beautiful land of our fathers - although we'd heartily recommend an extra bar just to treat yourself! You won’t be able to wait for the next ‘special occasion’ to grab a taste of this traditional flavoured chocolate. What really makes our Welsh Cake Bar special is the creative genius of our chocolatiers in recreating an uncannily accurate and authentic taste.
We doubt you'll find anything more Welsh than our Wickedly Welsh Moreishly Milk Welsh Cake chocolate.
