More information:

Thomas Tunnock was born in Uddingston,near Glasgow, Scotland His family go back several generations in the parish. His father John Tunnock was a joiner and coffin maker and had an advertisement on the main road into Uddingston. It read “Why live a miserable life when for 30 bob you can be buried comfortably” Thomas married 21 year old dairymaid Mary Mitchell. They lived in the family home in Fairview Place Uddingston. 1912 Thomas had built a new bakery at Loanhead Mansions in the main street. 1924 Archie opened a larger tearoom above the shop. The bakers shop and tearoom are still there today. Boyd Tunnock, Archie's younger son was given the task of developing a new product. Boyd did a lot of market research and further developed the idea of using Italian meringue. He made a biscuit base, hand piped the mallow onto the base and covered in milk chocolate. The Teacake made its first appearance in 1956.
