Ok. Forget what everyone tries to tell you. It’s official.
Chocolate Is Good For You!
At least according to Tunnock’s, the Scottish family bakers. Thomas Tunnock formed the company in 1890, when he purchased a baker’s shop in Uddingston. Their products have acquired something of a cult status, and are recognisable by their distinctive packaging.
The Tunnock’s Tea Cake is a sweet snack popular in Britain. It consists of a small round shortbread biscuit covered with a dome of a whipped egg white concoction similar to marshmallow. This is then encased in a thin layer of milk or plain chocolate and wrapped in a distinctive coloured foil wrapping.
The name is somewhat confusing as a tea cake is normally a sweet bread roll with dried fruit added to the mix, often served toasted and buttered. A Tunnock’s Tea Cake bears no relation to this product.
Products similar to the Tunnock’s Tea Cake include the Mallowpuff (sold in New Zealand), the Israeli winter confectionary Krembo, the Whippet Cookie and Viva Puff in Canada, the Negerkuss or Schaumkuss in Germany and Mallomars in the United States.
