The birth of our unique Bittermints

This was where, in 1931, Lucia Benson, our founder’s sister-in-law created a remarkable new mint chocolate recipe. Our quest for chocolate perfection led to the development of a mint fondant which was thickly covered in a 95% cocoa solids chocolate. We named it the Bittermint, now our most famous mint, and a phenomenon from the start.

The story of Bendicks begins
