Peppermint Pig Gift Set (Includes Peppermint Pig, Hammer, Story Card & Velvet Bag)

It started back in the early 1880s, a pig, revered as a symbol of good health, happiness, and prosperity, was made from hard peppermint candy. After a holiday supper, the Peppermint Pig was broken in a cloth bag and the pieces were shared by all in the hopes of good fortune and many blessings for the coming year.

Our 8 oz. Peppermint Pig comes with a red velvet bag and a forged steel hammer to start your own holiday tradition. This will make a delightful hostess gift that's sure to liven up a holiday party! The 8 oz. pig is 5-1/2"L. Made in USA.

The Famous Peppermint Pig has been featured on the Food Network, the Today Show, Live with Regis and Kelly, CNN, CNBC, CBS New and countless magazines and newspapers across the country.

The Peppermint Pig™ Tradition - The Peppermint Pig as aptly it was named, was cast of hard candy similar in fashion to candy cane and festive pink in color. And while the pig is honored in Victorian holiday tradition as a symbol of good health, happiness and prosperity, these special "Peppermint Pigs", unique to Saratoga Springs, New York, came to represent much more. After the holiday dinner, the Peppermint Pig was passed amongst those gathered, each in turn giving the pouch a firm tap and sharing a tale of the past year's good fortune. The delicious broken peppermint and warm memories were enjoyed by all in hopes of prosperity for the coming year. We are honored to revive this timeless tradition and invite you and your family to celebrate a Peppermint Pig holiday season.

Peppermint pig

Have ordered this multiple times from Catholic Supply. Never been disappointed. Peppermint pig is always fresh, tasty and fun with the whole family cracking it with the tiny hammer. I will order it again in the future. Have given a few as gifts also. Always enjoyed
