GIVEAWAY THIS WEEK, ENDS FRIDAY.
Chanukah or Hanukkah if you like to spell it that way, starts this year at sundown on Saturday the 8th so I felt I needed to cover this treat from Amy Sue Lambert the LINDT R.S.V.P. consultant. She sent us this bag of gold coins. As you can see the bag is tied with a cream colored ribbon; it does tie it, no twisty ties underneath this ribbon. Inside the bag were 32 gold foil wrapped pieces of milk chocolate; the information in the bag says there are about six servings and a serving is made of six coins so not quite as many as claimed. These are made in Italy but distributed in the USA by Lindt and Sprüngli Inc. out of New Hampshire. These are made of sugar, cocoa butter, milk, chocolate, lactose, soya lecithin, and artificial flavor.
Now there are historical reasons why coins are associated with Jewish holidays. The reasons aren't particularly nice, however, yet many of the Jewish friends I have do indeed give their kids chocolate gold coins for Hanukkah. But there is no reason you can't enjoy these if you aren't Jewish and you don't need to use them for a holiday. I've used chocolate coins to reward players in my RPGs at conventions before for example.
There we go another LINDT R.S.V.P. treat from their 2012 Holiday Catalog. You still have time to check them out and order some before the season begins, whatever season you may want to share these during. Thanks, Amy Sue, for sharing these with us.
