ISO chocolate coins

You know, the ones wrapped in gold foil? Anywhere in the Boston/Cambridge area or metrowest area would be helpful. Thanks!

    I also saw some recently at the candy stand in Faneuil Hall and at the CVS in the N. End

      Are you looking for good quality chocolate? I happened to be at a "thing" today where there was a big bag of pretty nice quality gold foil chocolate coins.
      They were from a place call Sanborn's Fine Candies, from Hampton, NH. Apparently off of RT 1. 603-920-5061. Coincidence? I guess. Maybe they'll ship 'em to you.

      I saw a huge display of them with the St. Patrick's Day stuff at AC Moore yesterday.

        Save your money--get them at iParty or ItzaParty.

          Are you talking about the traditional, inexpensive gold coins that come in a mesh bag and are often used for Chanukah gelt? If so, you may want to try the Butcherie in Brookline or the Allston-Brighton Stop & Shop. If you want something a bit nicer and more expensive, I recommend Lake Champlain's chocolate coins that are available in bags at Whole Foods. One flavor comes wrapped in gold foil.

            Yes, just the cheap ones. Thanks for the tips!

            I'm sure Hidden Sweets in Harvard Square would have them. I saw them at Truffles at the Prudential Center, Party Favors in Brookline would be a good bet too.

            I think any of the stores that sell a lot of bins of candy would have these.
