There’s just something about the combination of rich chocolate and cool, refreshing mint. No wonder someone had the bright idea of proclaiming February 19 as Chocolate Mint Day.
We love mint at Fairytale Brownies! We offer mint chocolate varieties of our delivered brownies and cookie gifts that are sure to please the mint lovers in your life. Hey, they might even appreciate these fun facts about mint, courtesy of the Mint Industry Research Council.
- Ninety percent of all peppermint and spearmint oil produced in the U.S. goes into chewing gum, toothpaste, and mouthwash. That doesn’t leave much for the rest of us!
- Mint is likely one of the earliest herbs put to regular use. Mint has been found in Egyptian tombs dating back to 1,000 BC and was probably used in China even earlier.
- The early Romans believed mint improved intelligence. The Roman army carried mint with it throughout Europe, helping it to spread into new areas.
Meanwhile, cocoa powder and pure peppermint oil create the perfect blend of richness and cool, mint bursts in our Mint Chocolate Cookies.
