FH and I live in the bay area, but are getting married in NH.
I’d like to bring a little local treat with us to give each set of parents at the rehearsal, sort of as a gift, but more as a nice gesture because their real gift will be an album after the wedding.
I’m going to bring them Peerless Coffee but I’d also like to bring a sweet treat. Got any suggestions that I could buy a week or two in advance and it would hold? Because as much as I know my mom would love a loaf of sourdough, I’m not trucking it on the plane with my dress! =D

Oh! DUH! Of course… geez… I knew it would be an obvious one… I just needed it thrown in my face!

My east coast family adores See’s Candy! (Even though you can know buy it out there – it’s still a west coast thing)

My first thoughts were Ghirardelli or See’s candies but both were already mentioned. 🙂

agree on the sees! and if you’re going to buy ghirardelli, get it at safeway or even the airport – so much cheaper 🙂

For chocolate, tcho’s or reccheuti’s (sp) are both (IMO) nicer local options that, unlike ghiradelli and Mrs See’s, you actually can’t get back east. But if you are getting a lot, then they would be expensive.

I echo the See’s idea — you can get ghirardelli chocolate everywhere, but most east coast cities still don’t have a See’s. And besides, they make so many delicious options! You could customize a box for each recipient based on what they like.

Yes, I know it’s probably physically impossible, but wow, I think tons of dry ice and a few coolers might be a good investment 🙂

I’m late to the discussion, but I love taking Claire’s Squares home when I visit family. Everyone just raves about them to where I can’t visit relatives w/out a package safely tucked into my purse.
