"Milk Chocolate Coins of All Nations"
Weight: .81 oz. (23 g.) in total small mesh bag of 7 "coins"
Calories: 121 calories (estimate)

Today was Day #5 of Chocolate and Money Theme Week. The tradition(s) of using chocolate money to celebrate holidays is a long one. Chocolate coins are used for Hanukkah gelt and dreidel games, to celebrate Chinese New Years, and Christmas, to name a few. Palmer's chocolate "Coins of all Nations" contained facsimiles (chocsimiles) of two U.S. pennies; three 5 Kronors; and two 1 Euros.

*Note: I found these chocolate coins in my chocolate stash. Unfortunately, they had become separated from the receipt and place of purchase information.

Today I also tried Yogi Tea's Mayan Cocoa Spice Tea (which does contain actual cacao ingredients). It was quite good. I was given this tea bag to try by my sister, when I was staying at the Double K Ranch in Southern California a few weeks ago.
