What about Ferrero Rocher chocolates? I just noticed at Costco that they’ve already got them out for Christams, along with a lot of other really good bulk chocolates that are individually wrapped.

Chocolatier Blue (bulk buying is less expensive than the boxes if you will be wrapping favors yourself)

@MrsBot:  +1000

Ferro Rocher are:

1- Delicious

2- Classy

You could also ask the bakery you talked to what they WOULD reccommend putting in the favor boxes!

@atlbride2013:  I’d try to avoid chocolate b/c it might melt

What about some sort of cookie, nuts, or popcorm-(a yummy flavor)

salt water taffy can be a nightmare, we were going to do some on our dessert buffet and because it was warm they melted and started oozing out of the wrapper, then we refrigerated them and the breakaway pieces were hard and fell over everything….. Salt water taffy is evil.

We got custom made sugar candy online from Raley’s Confectionary ( and they were a hit!!  As long as you store them in a cool place, they will be fine.  We got ours done as cute little bunny faces 🙂  Raley’s was really easy to work with, too.

I love Lindt Lindor truffles, we have an outlet here where you can buy them in bulk. Not sure how well they’d hold up temperature wise but they’re wrapped.

Ferrero rochers are a great item, maybe other types of gourmet chocolates or pretzels, custom made fortune cookies, or little packages of personalized m&ms [you could put them in those little ogranza baggies and then into the box]

Rock candy on a string would be a cute idea! They have so many colors and favors to choose from, and buying in bulk is pretty inexpensive!

atlbride2013:  at a bridal show I went to a few months ago a local candy shop had what looked like a giant bowl of pearls. They were actually sixlets (candy coated chocolate) with a pearl candy finish on the outside. They were really pretty.

You could always do those Lindt truffle balls
