February 19th National Chocolate Mint Day

Well, if you like chocolate and you like mint it only seems natural to put them both together. Chocolate mint has probably been around since the day Columbus first sent chocolate back to Europe from the newly discovered Americas. (That’s the late 1400’s for those of you who forgot.) Oddly, the first chocolate mint chip was not created until 1973 by Marilyn Ricketts for Princess Anne to Captain Philips at Westminster Abbey. While chocolate is good by itself, the mint makes it a little more refreshing. You’ll find it in ice cream, cakes, cookies, cereal… you name it, you can usually find it.

How to celebrate – Have some chocolate mint. Create your own recipe for a chocolate mint something. Visit Westminster Abbey.
