Peppermint Patty Day, In the News, and Enjoy

Peppermint Patty Day - Today is s Peppermint Patty Day!

A peppermint patty is a tasty confection made with a rich, creamy peppermint filling covered in semisweet chocolate.

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.

Peppermint patties also gained notoriety after the debut of "Peanuts," Charles M. Schultz's famous comic strip, in 1966. One of the main characters was Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt.
