Taste Test

Taste test: Peppermint treats

Like pumpkin-infused foods at Thanksgiving, sometimes the holidays include way too much peppermint. Our judges love peppermint, but they don't want it injected into everything they eat for a month. Instead, this week, we looked for a few food offerings with a subtle twist of the flavor. We love a peppermint stick in our hot cocoa; we don't mind it sprinkled on our ice cream sundaes; and we are good with a little peppermint patty at the end of a meal. Now, we know we can enjoy a minty twist in these holiday delights.
