Peppermint Pig" is a song by Scottish alternative rock band Cocteau Twins. It was released as both a single and 12" EP on 4 April 1983 by record label 4AD. Musically, the material was similar to their previous release, the 1982 EP Lullabies. It was the last release to feature original bassist Will Heggie. Peppermint Pig marked the only time that the Cocteau Twins used an outside producer for one of their recordings, with production handled by Alan Rankine of the Associates.

Experimenting with other producers, the Twins worked with fellow Scot and Associates member Alan Rankine on this three song effort, though not to fully successful effect. Guthrie later groused that Rankine didn't appreciate the band's music to begin with and swore never to hand over production duties again, though the single itself was a notable independent chart success.

The Cocteau Twins' "Peppermint Pig" EP was released in early 1983, a few months after their first album GARLANDS and their second HEAD OVER HEELS. Bringing in Alan Rankine as producer, they were looking for a style different from their debut and were somewhat successful. Showing a more rhythmic basis than the austerity of GARLANDS, this EP can be seen as a bridge to some of HEAD OVER HEELS
