February 11 is Peppermint Patty Day. It’s a day to celebrate the tasty and refreshing chocolate and mint confection. The York Peppermint Pattie was first produced in York, Pennsylvania, in 1940. (The Peanuts character by the same name was introduced in 1966.)
Below, York Peppermint Patties make a woman yodel like a lonely goatherd.

When I bite into a York Peppermint Pattie, I get the sensation of being in the snow-covered Alps.
