Chocolate 🍫 Mint Candy

February 19th is National Chocolate 🍫 Mint Day

Mint chocolate (or chocolate mint or choc mint) is a popular variety of flavored chocolate, made by adding a mint flavoring, such as peppermint, spearmint, or crème de menthe, to chocolate. Mint chocolate can be found in a wide variety of edible products, such as candy, mints, cookies, mint chocolate chip ice cream, hot chocolate, and others. In addition, it is marketed in a non-edible form as a beauty product.

Depending widely on the ingredients and the process used, mint chocolate can give off a very distinctive mint fragrance. The chocolate component can be milk chocolate, regular dark chocolate, or white chocolate; due to this, mint chocolate has no one specific flavor and so, each chocolate-plus-flavor combination can be unique.

The U.S. National Confectioners Association lists February 19 as "Chocolate Mint Day".
