National Chocolate Mint Day 2022 – How to Celebrate National Chocolate Mint Day?

National Chocolate Mint Day 2022

National Chocolate Mint Day is a day to celebrate the delicious chocolate peppermint flavor! The flavor of this holiday has been around for many years and it’s not going anywhere anytime soon. In fact, National Chocolate Mint Day was first created by a company called Hershey’s in 1938 as a way to promote their brand new product – “Hershey®’s Milk Chocolate with Cocoa”.

The idea behind the creation of this holiday is that people will want to buy more chocolate on February 19th, thus increasing sales for companies like Hershey’s. The date of February 19th was chosen because it falls near Valentine’s Day which is another big day for chocolate sales.

History Of National Chocolate Mint Day

Mint is a herb that has been valued for centuries in the Mediterranean region. It can be used to freshen breath, aid digestion, and give food an added flavor boost! Mint has been used in many different types of foods (primarily desserts) and drinks.

The history behind chocolate mint dates back to the 17th century when people began making peppermint tea using dried peppermint leaves, but it wasn’t until around 1820 that they added cocoa powder into the mix, thus creating what we call “hot chocolate”.

The pairing of chocolate with mint is more than just an interesting idea. It’s thanks to York Peppermint Patties that this combination became popular, as Henry Kessler opened up his iconic company during the 1920s

The blending of these two flavors had always been done before then but it wasn’t until Mr.Kessler created them at his factory for consumption by people all over America!

The York Peppermint Patty is the ultimate blend of mint and chocolate. It was created in 1948, but it wasn’t until then that this perfect combination really took shape!

York Peppermint Patties are now a part of the Hershey family, and they provide their delicious flavors in many different forms.

The York Cone Company was founded by Thomas Adams back in 1891 when he began selling peppermint extract at farmers’ markets around town! Today you can find these tasty treats under various brand names including York peppermints (yummy), Jolly Time mints( indulge yourself), Red Hots®, Dietz & Watson™ Smartees® breath strips, etc., but there’s no doubt that everyone knows them best as “York Cones”.

York is not the only town that has been enjoying mint chocolate for centuries. Others have followed suit and are now adapting this delicious treat into their own culture, making it more diverse than ever before!

The US National Confectioners Association is sponsoring a chocolate-mint day, which has been around for quite some time now. Chocolate Mint Day celebrates this beloved flavor pairing and its place in popular culture as an example of what can happen when two great tastes come together at just the right moment – both timeless classics!


  1. Eat Chocolate and Mint together

I know you love your sweet and savory food, so why not give this flavor combination a try?

The best part about it is that there are many recipes for both breakfast pastries and dinner pies. So go ahead—do what floats your boat!

  1. Put it in a drink

Ever had chocolate mint coffee? It’s so good! But, you can make your own at home. Picture waking up to a hot steaming cup of the stuff in the morning too-mazing right?!

  1. Have the classics

If you have a sweet tooth, this is the article for you! I’ve got 3 decadent desserts that will make your mouth water with delight. The first one features mint chocolate cake in three different flavors; there’s also ice cream and pie among others too so be sure to try them all out before they run away like little deers (I know how it goes when someone offers us something delicious). Other than their scrumptious taste buds tickled by these treats’ unforgettable flavor combinations – what else can we talk about? well, actually everything has its own story but let me stop here because I don’t want anyone running off yelling “hurry up!”


  1. Fresh breath patrons

In the 1900s, tea houses and dinner halls served mint to aid digestion. Dark chocolate was also placed in one’s mouth for good breath as well as an attempt at improving your oral hygiene!

  1. I wanna go camping

Thin Mints account for more than 25% of Girl Scout cookie sales. This may be because they’re so yummy and come in all different flavors, but it also could show something about America’s preferences when selecting a type of chocolate: people seem to have loving/hate relationships with this delicacy depending on how you slice things up!

  1. They’re Andies

You’ve probably heard of Andies Candies, but did you know that they used to be called ‘Andie’s Mountains’?

  1. Mint as medicine

The Ancient Greeks believed that mint could cure hiccups. The flavor of the herb was thought to be soothing and invigorating, useful as a breath freshener for those who suffer from poor smelling mouths or noses too!

  1. Leaf me be

Mint chocolate is also the name of an herb with edible leaves. Mint has been used in both hot and cold drinks for its refreshing taste, but it’s especially popular among adults because this plant contains no caffeine according to Earthlink Herbs’ website page on “Mint History & Folklore.”


There you have it! If this isn’t enough to get your creative juices flowing, then I don’t know what is. Chocolate and mint go great together—and they’re not even close to being the only flavors that can coexist like a dream team (well actually there’s tea too but never mind). The best part about the chocolate mint day is that it falls on a day of the week when we can all enjoy some well-deserved relaxation. So, as you’re reading this article and thinking about how to celebrate, just remember: at least tomorrow’s Friday!
