Today is National Peppermint Pattie Day and we are not talking about…
No we mean the yummy chocolate kind.
Invention of the Peppermint Pattie
The York Cone Company, which was based in Pennsylvania and originally produced ice cream cones, invented the York Peppermint Pattie in 1940. Unlike the existing chocolate-covered peppermint candies, York’s product was firm and crisp. It soon became the premier candy of its kind.
