This variety of candy can be found at restaurants throughout North America (generally served after a meal). There was once a character based on the confection known as ‘Mr. Peppermint’. his son is the singer of the rock and roll band, Butthole Surfers, and also shares an affinity to candy and spices.
Peppermint candy is hard and shouldn’t be chewed. It smells and tastes good, but would probably become unappetizing if consumed daily. It bears some resemblance to peppermint.
Peppermint Candy became an official snack on April 21st 2012.
