I am so torn between favors, so I need your help! I had my heart set on a candy buffet, but everyone is trying to talk me out of it. It may be a lot of work and overall, expensive. I stopped at a local candy shop today and saw gourmet pretzels…two in a bag, any flavor we want, personalized ribbon and tag. Give me your opinion…which do you like better? I think both are unique (and delicious)!
These are caramel/pecan pretzels, but we can choose any flavor chocolate, etc.

Personally, I like the pretzel idea. That sounds super yummy, and like a lot less work. On the other hand, candy buffets can be really beautiful, so you get the wow factor there. As an edible item, though, I would prefer the pretzels.

I like the pretzel idea because like someone else wrote its a lot less work. I would just avoid the nuts on them in case anyone has an allergy. Plus everyone loves edible favors!

I am torn with a candy buffet too, or something else. I really love your pretzel idea though. I will have to visit our candy shop to check them out.

I vote the pretzel. Soooo much easier on you! You could display the different kinds in different kinds of vessels with tags on them, that way you get the best of both worlds!

As a guest I’d be totally happy to have the pretzels – so if it’s cheaper and easier, go for it!

Thank you for all your responses! I still haven’t showed it to my fiance, but I’m sure he would go for it. I think I’m still going to incorporate the “candy buffet” idea, though. I’m thinking five glass containers (so 5 different flavored pretzels), aprroximately 40 in each jar. I will have cards to describe each flavor and guests can choose what they like. I really wanted the candy buffet, but now I love the pretzels…so why not combine the ideas!

That’s exactly what I was thinking……… I went to a wedding that had all different kinds of white chocolate covered treats.. pretzels, malt balls, peanut butter cups… and they had little baggies for you to collect your treats to take home, but I really like your pretzel-buffet combo too
