I once more turn to 1885 and some information I sent to all of my suppliers so that they knew that they were buying only the most genuine and the most delectable of confectionery. To this day this is still true and, as with the last paragraph of the information below, you can always be assured when you see my portrait on the packaging and my address (today it is my address on Bradbury Street, Sheffield) that you are only buying the most trustworthy and finest of all Confectionery.
“During the 37 years I have been a manufacturer of Sweets and Confectionery, I have not used an ounce of anything in the shape of adulteration; but have purchased and used all articles of the purest and best quality. By so doing, I have attained a reputation for my goods throughout the length and breadth of the Kingdom – a reputation envied me by hundreds of my would-be competitors. For One of my specialities, – “MINT ROCK,” – of which I am the original and only genuine Maker, I receive orders from persons of every station in life, from all parts of the country, and supply to my various agents, weekly, many tons weight:- all this has been achieved being unmistakably its own recommendation.
To prevent fraud and deception, I wish to impress upon my patrons the necessity of observing that upon all my paper bags and wrappers there is the name in full –“Charles Butler, the World famous Mint Rock Manufacturer,” together with my Portrait, and the Addresses-Snig Hill and Fargate Sheffield.”
