St. Patrick’s Day Candy

Chocolate Coins: A St. Patrick’s Day Tradition

Chocolate coins have a long and rich history, dating back to the 19th century. They have been used as a symbol of wealth, as currency, and as a sweet treat, and they have played a significant role in many cultures and traditions around the world.

The origins of chocolate coins can be traced back to the 1800s when they were first produced in Europe. At the time, chocolate was a luxury item and was often used as a form of currency. Chocolate coins were created as a way to make the exchange of money more fun and appealing, and they quickly became a popular item in Europe.

The first chocolate coins were made from high-quality chocolate and were stamped with various designs and symbols, such as the face of a king or queen. Over time, the chocolate coins became more decorative, and many featured intricate designs and intricate images. Some of the most popular designs included the national emblem of the country, the image of a famous historical figure, and the image of a mythical creature.

One of the first uses of chocolate coins was as a currency for children. In Europe, it was common for children to receive a small amount of money from their parents or grandparents, which they could then use to buy sweets and other treats. The chocolate coins made this process more fun and appealing, and children often collected them as a way to show off their wealth.


In the 20th century, chocolate coins began to be produced on a larger scale, and they were soon being used in a variety of different ways. For example, they were often given as gifts at holidays, such as Christmas, Easter, and Valentine’s Day, and they were also used as a way to reward children for good behavior or academic achievement.

One of the most popular uses of chocolate coins was as part of a tradition on St. Patrick’s Day. St. Patrick’s Day is a holiday that is celebrated on March 17th each year, and it is dedicated to the patron saint of Ireland, St. Patrick.

One of the most popular traditions on St. Patrick’s Day is the giving of gifts, and chocolate coins have become a popular gift for children and adults alike. On St. Patrick’s Day, children often receive a small bag of chocolate coins, which they can use to buy sweets and other treats. Adults also often exchange chocolate coins as a way to show their appreciation for their friends and family.

Today, chocolate coins are still a popular item around the world, and they continue to be used in a variety of different ways. They are still used as a form of currency, as a gift, and as a symbol of wealth, and they continue to play a role in many cultures and traditions, including St. Patrick’s Day.

Whether giving chocolate coins is a long-standing tradition in your family, or you’re looking to start a new one, be sure to pick up a bag or two!

Chocolate Coins – a St. Patrick’s Day Tradition

“At the end of every rainbow lies a pot of gold.” That phrase instantly brings visions of a happy-go-lucky leprechaun guarding an overflowing cauldron of bright gold coins, or, a favorite breakfast cereal!

Whichever image it conjures up for you, there’s no mistaking the mascot of St. Patrick’s Day – a holiday celebrated each year on the 17th of March. While St. Patrick’s Day was celebrated by the Irish dating back to 1000AD, it was first celebrated here in the United States in 1737 in the country’s most Irish city – Boston.

Holidays all have their candy cousin, such as candy canes for Christmas, heart shaped lollipops for Valentine’s Day, and chocolate rabbits for Easter. St. Patrick’s Day is no exception, and we owe the choice of sweets to our friend the leprechaun.

The St. Patrick’s Day candy that’s most associated with the holiday is none other than chocolate coins wrapped in shiny gold foil to represent the coins in the leprechaun’s overflowing pot.

These chocolate coins are a favorite treat that can be used in decorations or handed out as gifts to youngsters of all ages. Our selection of chocolate coins come in either quarters or half-dollars and are available in 2 and 24 pound packages.
