This iconic brand, now owned by McCormick, was established in 1876 for Scottish soldiers engaged in field campaigns in India, where real coffee was almost impossible to get hold of. This substitute coffee product was a store cupboard staple during both World wars.
Camp has a mild sweet coffee/chicory flavour and has moved with the times, from being purely a substitute coffee drink to now selling as a home baking ingredient. It helps make the perfect tiramisu or coffee and walnut cake!
Why We Love It
Camp is a truly iconic brand of nostalgia and has a great story behind it. It is a highly versatile product as it can be used in hot and cold drinks, or as a flavouring for sponges, ice creams and icings.
