National Peppermint Patty Day
Holiday Name: National Peppermint Patty Day
Holiday Celebration: February 11
The York Peppermint Patty gained nationwide popularity with its firm, crisp chocolate shell. People also fell in love with its strongly contrasting flavors — bitter chocolate around a sweet, sugary center. Pick up one today and celebrate National Peppermint Patty Day!
The company merged with Cadbury Schweppes in 1978, then the Hershey Foods Corporation took over the US operations in 1988 but these days your York Peppermint Pattie was probably made in Mexico. It doesn’t matter who makes them; you’re still getting your patties!
