National Chocolate Mint Day – Let’s Celebrate!

There’s a National Chocolate Mint Day?  Who would’ve thunk it?

As far as I can tell, there are two camps when it comes to chocolate mint, or if you prefer, mint chocolate.  The first camp is made up of the people who detest this celebrated combo.  The second camp is made up of those who love it.  I, for one, used to be in the first camp, but am now in the second!

Lately, I’ve been enjoying the occasional Peppermint Pattie, especially on road trips when I need a pick-me-up.  But if those aren’t your thing, there are many other ways to celebrate the day.

You could find a Girl Scout and get some Thin Mints, go to the movies and have some Junior Mints, or just go to the market and buy some Andes or After Eights.  If cookies and candy don’t appeal to you, there’s always ice cream of the mint and chocolate chip variety.  And, if you’d rather celebrate this day after 5:00, so to speak, you can always have a Grasshopper Martini or make hot chocolate and add some Peppermint Schnapps.

Surely, there’s something here that appeals to you, unless of course, you are in the first camp.  And if that’s the case, I recommend you try this special delight one more time, in honor of the day.  Who knows?  You might be like me and need to change camps!
