I wanted to focus on chocolate money, coins and a related theme this week, but I didn't have a chance to research this fully. Today, I ran out of time and ended up shopping at a local supermarket at 10 p.m. at night for my chocolate of the day. They had no chocolate coinage...So, I went with two ice creams that had some vague connection to this overall monetary theme.

First, Ben and Jerry's "Imagine Whirled Peace" contained what looked to be small chocolate coins, but they are really peace signs. Second, I sprung for some "1/2 the fat"/light Breyers Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream...well, because a "mint" is where money is made. OK, I realize this is a bad pun and a big stretch; but when you go shopping late at night, and the store employees start suspecting you are a bit strange as you walk down all possible aisles/areas that might harbor some chocolate coins, with the look of a hungry hunter, you have to get creative.
