York Peppermint Patties
York Peppermint Patties
York Peppermint Patty history dates back to the early 1920s when Henry Kessler opened the York Cone Company. And, while the mint chocolate, disc-shaped confection has been around for decades, the Cone Company didn’t invent it until 20 years after opening! What exactly makes this peppermint treat so unique? The chocolate covered minty center is firm and crisp as opposed to gooey and chewy. A “snap test” was later implemented by the company to ensure that each piece broke clean down the middle. These ultra-fresh candies were introduced in just a few states, with a larger rollout to the entire US in 1975. Alongside the nationwide rollout was a memorable advertising campaign that christened the York Peppermint Patty slogan, “Get the Sensation,” still recognized today. The slogan was a way for the candy company to emphasize the full-body chill you get when you take a bite out of this peppermint delight.
