Bendicks has been renowned for delivering excellence for over 80 years and is seen by many as the best after dinner mint. We use only the highest quality ingredients for each recipe and will continue to honour its reputation for perfection for decades to come.
Bendicks reputation for the finest after dinner mint chocolates was officially recognised when the company was granted a Royal Warrant, ‘By Appointment to Her Majesty The Queen’. A prestigious, Royal seal of approval that Bendicks proudly displayed on its packs and shops, confirming the quality and excellence for which they were famous.
Bendicks developed an unrivalled reputation for quality and excellence, and a new store was opened in the heart of London’s exclusive Mayfair. The elite new store attracted the most discerning of customers. The company soon became famous across the globe as Bendicks of Mayfair.
Lucia Benson, Oscar Benson‘s sister-in-law, develops a remarkable mint chocolate recipe. She enrobes mint fondant, which is almost too intense in taste, in dark 95% cocoa solids chocolate, which is almost too bitter, creating the world-famous Bittermint.
Mr Oscar Benson and Colonel “Bertie” Dickson open a small confectionery business at an unassuming address: 184 Church Street, Kensington, London.
