History of National Peppermint Patty Day
In 1920, Henry Kessler created York Peppermint Pattie in York, Pennsylvania, and marketed throughout the Northeast United States by his York Cone Company. York Peppermint Patty was so successful that the York Cone company discontinued the cones for which it was named and focused all its efforts on creating the new candy sensation its creators revealed. In 1972, the York Cone Company was sold to Peter Paul, who ensured that the rest of the country could enjoy its delicious dark chocolate, peppery flavors.
