Saratoga Sweets first opened for business in 1988 in historic Saratoga Springs, NY. Back then we produced a small variety of handmade chocolates, most made right in the window of our Caroline Street shop. It was during that first holiday season that we were approached by our local historical society regarding a "lost" holiday tradition called the Peppermint Pig™. Using borrowed candy molds and the original recipe, about 100 Peppermint Pigs™ were made just in time for sale Christmas Eve Day. We were greeted that snowy morning by a crowd of Saratogians of all ages gleefully waiting to get their first Peppermint Pig™ in over 50 years.
Since that first Christmas season, our production in both chocolates and Peppermint Pigs™ has grown tremendously. Saratoga Sweets proudly offers over 100 different types of chocolates, truffles and novelties and last holiday season over 130,000 Peppermint Pigs™ were made in our candy kitchen in Halfmoon, NY just south of Saratoga Springs.
