    Leave the stems on. It gives them something to hold on to so they don’t get chocolate all over their fingers.

    @FutureMrsMeinhardt:  I find leaving the leaves on is helpful because it gives you something to hold on to. Otherwise you’re going to get chocolate all over your fingers. If I want to finish the whole strawberry I’ll just rip the leaves off myself. I usually just eat around them.

    I’d take the leaves off, much easier to eat the whole thing, and less messy! 

    And now I want chocolate covered strawberries 🙂

    I’ve never seen a chocolate covered strawberry without the leaves.  How do you dip it?  Or go all Pinterest and do chocolate-filled strawberries.  Those look delish and not messy.

    I would still vote to leave the stems on, even with toothpicks for the stemless strawberries. I don’t think I have ever had them with stems already removed, actually.

    i always hull strawberries before eating and/or serving them.

    if i go to someone’s house who has not hulled the strawberry, i find i waste a lot of the strawberry because i don’t like eat near the stem.

    plus, i think it looks nices when they are hulled.

    I’d leave the leaves on.  It looks prettier and gives the person eating them something to hold on to.
