The diminutive of the beloved Peppermint Pig. Candy makers bathed in the amber glow of crackling hearth and bubbling candy pots would labor into the night continuing a holiday tradition known as the "Peppermint Pig". The pig was a symbol of good health, happiness and prosperity. After Christmas dinner, this candy cane flavored porker would be passed around the table. All who believed shared a broken shard of candy to ensure a good year ahead! 3oz.
