William Santus and Company have been making a variety of sweets since 1898. The survival in this industry may be surprising in itself, but what is more remarkable about William Santus and Co. Ltd is the legendary status which has surrounded “Uncle Joe’s Mint Balls”.
Immortalised in countless articles, cartoons and poems; there has even been a song written about them! Uncle Joe’s Mint Balls are synonymous with the town of their production, having been immensely popular there since their creation. This town is, of course, Wigan, Lancashire.
