Peppermint Stick Ice Cream
It's almost Christmas time, and you only want one thing – peppermint! Why is it that this minted flavored treat is the trademark of the Christmas season? When you eat peppermint outside of the Christmas season, your mind jumps straight to the holidays. So now that the Christmas season is here, how will you pick the first peppermint treat to bestow upon your palette? Don't worry; we're here to help you pick the best peppermint treat!
First of all, why in the world is peppermint a Christmas staple? There are so many other delicious foods and treats that we eat during the holidays, and yet they aren't as connected to Christmas as peppermint. Probably the best reason why peppermint treats are a Christmas favorite is because of an old tradition dating back to the 1880s. During the Victorian era, a Christmas tradition was started in Saratoga Springs, NY. According to tradition, candy makers would make pink peppermint pigs for the holidays that were purchased by families of wealth. After dinner, the family would smash the pig and disperse the pieces among family and friends. Eating the pieces of the broken peppermint pig signified prosperity and happiness in the New Year. Ever since then, peppermint candy has only grown in popularity during the Christmas season.
So, what type of peppermint candies will you be bestowing upon your palette this Christmas season?
