Peppermint is a plant that tends to keep to itself until someone decides to harvest it for consumption purposes.
Peppermint has a very ‘clean’ flavor, which is found appealing by most people. It’s a popular ingredient of candy and chewing gum, which are in turn frequently enjoyed after meals. Peppermint tends to pair better with sweet flavors rather than savory, but this may be a result of a lack of experimentation.
Peppermint became an official snack on June 11th 2012.
