During the festival of lights, giving out chocolate gelt coins is a long-standing tradition. Whether just for a treat or gambling over a game of dreidel, here are delicious and fun ways to enjoy Hanukkah gelt.

Foil-Free Gelt
Touted as the “gelt for grown-ups,” Veruca's wrapperless chocolates are shaped like 4th decade B.C.E. Judean coins. They're available in two types of Guittard chocolate: silver-painted milk chocolate or gold-painted dark chocolate with cacao nibs.

Fair Trade Gelt
In festive blue and silver, Divine Chocolates’ 70% cacao coins are made solely with fair trade chocolate.

Gelt for Dogs
While our canine friends can’t have chocolate, they can still enjoy gelt with this fun, coin-shaped chew toy.
