Peppermint Pig

The Tradition of the FAMOUS Peppermint Pig™ Started ages ago in the 1880's with candy makers in Saratoga Springs, NY. It's a festive way to celebrate the holidays. And the Tradition is even more popular today than when it was originally Released. 

In Victorian Culture, the pig represented good health, happiness, & prosperity. Inspired by this symbol. Old-fashioned candy makers in Saratoga started to create Peppermint Pigs™ Each year during the holiday season. These sweet Treats were made of hard peppermint candy, Similar in taste to a candy cane, and appropriately colored a festive pink.   

When families gathered for Christmas meals the tradition was to break the Peppermint Pig™ after dinner (inside of a small cloth bag) using a mini hammer. All family members would then share in eating the sweet treat hoping for good fortune in the coming year. 

Peppermint Pigs™ currently come in 3 sizes: Small, Medium, and Large as well as versions with chocolate called the "Muddy Pig". 

All 4 Can be purchased in our Store Along with other Peppermint Pig™ Goodies!
