Chocolate Coins in Korea?
« on: June 21, 2011, 12:11:03 PM »
I'm currently planning my summer camp, and I'm wondering if anybody has seen those chocolate coins that like to appear close to St. Patricks day around our homes. (I'm going a pirates theme and would love to use these as prizes!)

Or, any other pirate related prize suggestions will do. =)

I live in Incheon.  I see them everywhere!  Check out the foreigner sections of Home Plus or Emart.

I'd be interested in learning about this too.  My plan is also a pirate theme (and that's almost as far as I've gotten with the plan...), but I have a few hundred USA pennies in rolls that I brought with me when I moved to Korea and that my parents sent in a care package.  I'm considering using those as treasure prizes.

Or maybe use fish/nautically-themed stickers as small prizes.  You might have to order these from a teacher supply store or something, but they're surely available somewhere on the internet if you look around.  Chocolate coins would be a lot of fun though.

I have definitely seen them at the Seoul Costco in Yangpyeong.  If they are always in stock is another question though

They can be found in the international supermarket in Itewan. Around the corner from Dunkin Donuts, up the street, just next to the Indian Restaurant.

Yeah I bought some at Costco for last Christmas.

They were a bit pricey. They came in a plastic cylinder (like butter cookie tins but smaller) and there are a good amount in there, but still pricey depending on how you are giving them away to your students.

I had to be reserved with them to last through all my students, but you should be able to go a bit further with just a summer session (assuming it's smaller than my 700+ students).

I can't remember exactly but I want to say around 200 coins pieces were around 20,000 - 25,000 won or maybe a bit more?

Where do you live?  You can find them at a Costco or most of the larger Korean grocery stores like Lotte Mart usually have them.  Or you can even see if the stores like "Daiso" or "CGV" or "Hi Daisy" have them. Wherever you live, they are definitely accessible here! Gluck!

If you do go to Costco, you should know that it requires a membership card (like SAM's Club) to purchase anything. And the membership card is 30,000won I believe. If you know anyone, they they can go with you and purchase it for you.

Our E-mart sells it but they're not always in stock.
