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 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. Replacement Peppermint Pigs are also sold
separately. 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.
