Every cloud has it’s the silver lining, but it is sometimes a little tricky to get it to the mint.” – Don Marquis.

History of National Chocolate Mint Day

The US National Confectioners Association declared National Chocolate Mint Day. The chocolate was brought back to the Europeans when they weren’t fond of the dark, bitter bean and used mostly for medical purposes. When it was consumed as a hot beverage, Europeans added mint, cinnamon, and other products to make it more palatable. Over time, sugar was added, and the combination of chocolate and mint became favorable. In the mid-1800s, inventions and improvements made it easier for confectioners to manufacture chocolates in great quantities. Until the turn of the century, the advertisements for mint chocolates did not start. Depending on the ingredients used and the process used, Mint Chocolate can give you a very distinctive mint fragrance. The components can be milk chocolate, standard dark chocolate, or white chocolate. Because of this, Mint Chocolate has no distinct flavor, and each flavor can be unique.
