ST. LOUIS — A wooden coin might be the most unique—and possibly best—item you could find in your kid’s trick-or-treat bag this year.

Lion’s Choice is selling packs of wooden coins to hand out to little ghosts and goblins this Halloween. They’re redeemable for a free mini custard cone at any of the restaurant chain’s locations.

Besides offering a different kind of tasty treat, Lion’s Choice said the coins can be a safe alternative for everyone.

“With added concerns of dietary restrictions and allergies, we wanted to offer a safe and easy way for everyone to celebrate,” said Lion’s Choice president and CEO Michael Kupstas.

The $5 packs include 25 wooden coins. They’re available at Lion’s Choice locations through Oct. 31.

The mini cones have been a fixture at Lion’s Choice since the first restaurant opened in St. Louis more than 51 years ago.
