St. Patrick's Day is a holiday best known for its beer, corned beef, and cabbage. Although some St. Patrick's Day candy can be found, it generally is overlooked by the candy industry presumably because of its unfortunate position between the candy-giving holiday juggernauts, Valentine's Day and Easter. You can find some loose, bin candy and candy coins for the occasion, but not many manufacturers want to splurge on something with a real wrapper.
See's Candies is one of the proud and few to step up to the plate and commemmorate this festive day. Here's their special candy potato, a chocolate-coated tasty treat with divinity in the middle. Let's hope more candy-makers follow the leader with this bit of sweet inspiration!
