The Famous Peppermint Pig
The first Peppermint Pig was made over a century ago to symbolize the Victorian belief in the pig as a good luck charm. Your family can continue this tradition with our genuine Peppermint Pig, which comes with its own velvet pouch and hammer.
The Peppermint Pig proudly stood for and old-fashioned Yuletide itself-a wonderful time when red-cheeked children laughed and rode old wooden sleds over fresh snow, when church bells pealed and fond recollections were shared by family and friends. After the holiday dinner, the 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.
After a special holiday meal, bring out the pig, crack it with the hammer, and share the pieces to assure health, happiness, and prosperity.
