Only the uppity snobs in Saratoga eat peppermint pigs. If you want real NY holiday candy made for the hoi polloi, you want Turkey Joints!

Make your own.

Find a YouTube video on making your own candy canes and follow the recipe and procedure, but instead of making a shepherd's crook make it into a pig instead. It won't look polished, but it'll be more charming that way. It'll be great fun.

But don't lick the spoon unless you enjoy third degree tongue burns.

Used to live about 3 miles from the place that makes those pigs. I normally don't like peppermint flavored candies, but those things are darn good.


/Clifton Park represent :D

Also if you make your own you could make the pig any flavor you want. Skip the peppermint oil and embed bits of real bacon, if you're so inclined.

Hammer? Pfft, this is Murrka. Somebody take out their nine and shoot it.

Before smashing the pig to bits, it's traditional to say "I must break you." in your best Dolph Lundgren growl.

Can you put candy into a 3D printer?

/Also, I would need a 3D printer.

Hooray for the hometown making it on Fark!

Now can we get a Saratoga Fark party? Perferrably including a day at the races?

Peppermint Pig? Isn't that what Charles Schultz called it when Peppermint Patty goes rooting around in Marcy's snatch?

Everyone is getting peppermint pigs and hammers this year.

I grew up in Rotterdam and never heard of it until I was in my mid 20s from my now-MIL. Who lives about 3 miles away from my parents.

They also do something involving hiding a fake pickle in the tree and have the kids look for it. I was never one for playing "hide the pickle" with kids, so I don't get this one either.

Glad I clicked the link. I was horrified that someone was messing with the flavor of bacon. Crisis averted.

It's a good tradition. More things should be sold in bags along with a hammer ready for smashing. The market for home-smashable items is probably just beginning to burgeon.

It'd be the perfect endorsement for boosting Gallagher's career.

He really should come out with some sort of 'watermelon candy in a bag with a hammer and with his name and likeness on it' for Xmas kind of a deal.
