In 1940, The York Cone Company, a Pennsylvania based company,( which originally made ice cream cones) invented the peppermint patty. This sweet creamy confection has rich peppermint filling coated with semi-sweet chocolate is refreshing and is a indulgence in itself.

Peppermint patties also gained notoriety after the debut of Peanuts, Charles M. Peppermint-pattySchultz’s famous comic strip, in 1966. One of the main characters was Patricia “Peppermint Patty” Reichardt.
