SKIDMORE PEPPERMINT PIG - LIMITED QUANTITIES
The Skidmore Peppermint Pig has quickly become a wonderful annual holiday tradition with our Skidmore community and we are extremely pleased to announce that it has returned for this years holiday season.
In Victorian culture, the pig represented good health, happiness and prosperity. Old fashioned candy makers fashioned the Peppermint Pigs™ each year during the holiday season. These sweet treats were made of hard peppermint candy --similar in taste and texture to a candy cane -- and appropriately colored a very festive pink!
When families gathered together at a holiday meal, the tradition was to break the Peppermint Pig™ after dinner (in the velveteen pouch) using a miniature hammer. All family members would then share in eating the sweet candy pieces, hoping for good fortune in the coming year. Each person will also recall something good that happened to them over the last year.
Today, the Peppermint Pig™ remains a fun and heartwarming tradition at holiday tables all around the nation. We at Skidmore are incredibly excited because the makers of the traditional Peppermint Pig have created a very special Peppermint Pig for our Skidmore families to enjoy during the holiday season. The Skidmore Peppermint Pig comes in a very limited edition Skidmore box along with 3 chocolate Skidmore medallions. This Peppermint Pig is ONLY available through The Skidmore Shop and no where else. Order yours today to guarantee you'll have one for the holidays.
