Chocolate Gold & Silver Coins
Chocolate Coins History
Chocolate coins, also known as chocolate money or chocolate gold coins, are a type of candy that is shaped like a coin and wrapped in gold or silver foil. The candy is made of chocolate or a chocolate-flavored candy and is often given as a gift or used as a decorative item during holidays such as Christmas and Hanukkah.
The origins of chocolate coins are unclear, but they are believed to have been inspired by the tradition of giving real coins as gifts during holidays and special occasions. Chocolate coins may have been created as a more affordable and festive alternative to real coins.
Chocolate coins have been popular in Europe since the early 20th century, and they became popular in the United States in the 1960s and 1970s. The candy is often sold in bulk or in small mesh bags, and it is a common treat during the holiday season.
In addition to being a popular candy, chocolate coins have also been used as a marketing tool. Companies have produced chocolate coins with their logos or branding on the foil wrapper, and they have been used as promotional items and giveaways.
Today, chocolate coins continue to be a popular treat and are enjoyed by people of all ages. They are often given as gifts, used as party favors, or used as decorations for cakes and other desserts.
Chocolate Gold & Silver Coins Memories
Every year for St. Patrick's Day my Dad spray paints little green footprints all around our front yard. He makes them lead to a spot where a little black pot is and in the pot is the little chocolate gold coins.
My daughter and sister love looking out for the Leprechaun. They also try setting a trap each year, they haven't caught the little green guy yet, but they get the coins. ~ DaisyMae from New York
