Many of the holidays I’ve come across in doing this project have been inspired by food or beverage combinations (like Blueberry Pancake Day, Nutella Day, Irish Coffee Day). Today is another taste combo day, as we celebrate Chocolate Mint Day!
Chocolate is smooth, rich and sweet. Mint is cool, refreshing and almost sharp. Some of the best food combinations arise from putting together two opposite tastes that somehow compliment each other in a surprising way, and chocolate and mint is most definitely one of them.
I knew that finding chocolate mint items on Etsy would be fairly easy, and I was right. There are tons of edible snacks and scent oils available. I thought I’d go a little more for the color palette, as brown and minty green certainly always make me think of those Andes mint chocolate candies, causing me to salivate just a little bit.
Take a peek at the treasury, and if you have any minty chocolaty treats around, be sure to have them on hand. Remember to also have a look at my other Every Day is a Holiday treasuries here!

“Every Day is a Holiday” is my Etsy Treasury project for 2014. I’m hoping to find unique and beautiful items that exemplify the holiday of the day—the sillier and weirder, the better! What’s better than finding something worth celebrating each and every day?
