Saratoga Sweets "Home of the Peppermint Pig" (TM)


Saratoga Sweets Home of the Peppermint Pig


Saratoga Sweets first opened for business in 1988 in historic Saratoga Springs, NY. Back then they produced a small variety of handmade chocolates, most made right in the window of their Caroline Street shop. It was during that first holiday season that they were approached by the local historical society regarding a “lost” holiday tradition called the Peppermint Pig™. Using borrowed candy molds and the original recipe, about 100 Peppermint Pigs™ were made Saratoga Sweets  Home of the Peppermint Pigjust in time for sale Christmas Eve Day. They were greeted that snowy morning by a crowd of Saratogians of all ages gleefully waiting to get their first Peppermint Pig™ in over 50 years. While they didn’t have nearly enough pigs to go around, all were happy that the Peppermint Pigs™ had returned.

Since that first Christmas season, their production in both chocolates and Peppermint Pigs™ has grown tremendously. Saratoga Sweets proudly offers over 100 different types of chocolates, truffles and novelties and last holiday season over 130,000 Peppermint Pigs™ were made in our candy kitchen in Clifton Park, NY just south of Saratoga Springs.

Peppermint Pigs have been featured on the Food Network, the Today Show, Live with Regis and Kelly, CNN, CNBC, CBS New and countless magazines and newspapers across the country. It is their hope that a Peppermint Pig will be an Honored Guest at your next holiday gathering.

A post after my own heart.  Localism at it's best.
