Gift No. 1:

When in doubt during gift-giving seasons, we at JCarrot always turn to food. You can’t go wrong with a gift that’s beautifully packaged, artisanal and edible. That’s why, in the days leading up to Hanukkah, we’re bringing you gift ideas of the edible (or at least culinary) variety.

To start, we present: Gelt for Grown-Ups Kosher Chocolate Coins from Veruca Chocolates. We had the pleasure of sampling these adult-friendly treats at Kosherfest 2014 and can vouch for their deliciousness and impeccably researched presentation.

Veruca Chocolates has already received rave reviews from publications such as Food & Wine, Saveur and the New York Times, and we love that they come in the form of 4th decade BCE, Judean-replicated gelt.

The gold and silver airbrushed coins are available for purchase online in such luxurious flavors as dark chocolate with sea salt, dark chocolate with cacao nibs and milk chocolate. They’re kosher-certified by the Chicago Rabbinical Council and the perfect gift for the nostalgic-historian-chocophile in everyone.
