Hawkens Gingerbread

It’s the Lincolnshire treat 280 years in the making! Back in 1740 Grantham baker William Eggleston used the wrong flour in his Whetstone biscuits… it was a happy accident which customers loved. Egglestone had invented Grantham Gingerbread, which was sold in the town right up to the 1970s. When the biscuit was in danger of extinction, Alistair Hawken stepped in and in 2009 relaunched the biscuit. Today Alistair has pioneered lemon, orange and special edition Christmas versions of the treat too. And now, you can enjoy gingerbread roundels or gingerbread men delivered to your door courtesy of Yummy, with that characteristic warming crunch you know and love from your childhood!
