The Original Peppermint Pig

Smash into this Popular Holiday Tradition!

  • A tradition that dates back to the early 1880s
  • The Peppermint Pig is made from hard peppermint candy
  • After a holiday dinner the Peppermint Pig is broken
  • The pieces are shared in hopes of good fortune for the coming year
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.
