I don’t think it’s ugly at all, and I personally would love chocolate covered raisins, but as… hmm, was it Mrs. Radish?… wrote a long while back (in a vegan cookie post), raisins are a very divisive food – people either love or hate them, it seems. You might be able to find some inexpensive plain chocolate candies at Costco or someplace like that.

I think that’s very cute!  I had the same dilemma and I needed approximately 95 pounds of candy and the jelly bellies/m&ms was going to cost us a fortune (with 300 favors).  So we went with flower shaped sweet tarts ("cherry blossoms") even though they weren’t our colors, it still followed our theme. 

Just a thought though, how many of your guests like raisins?

I think choc raisins would look fine but as one of the other posters mentioned some may like some may not. 

Other chocolate options would be:  braches chocolate stars (tasty, plain chocolate and they look pretty),  malted milk balls, nonpariels, minature chocolate covered pretzels,

The only thing I would say is avoid anything with nuts in it since a lot of people tend to have nut allergies.

two sites I used to get lots of candy cheep for my candy buffet (70 pounds total) were:

and

http://www.metrocandy.com

Both had great services, fast delivery and the candies tasted great even after I stored them for 3 months leading up to the wedding

[hijack] Wow, Bridediy… I don’t think I could ever do that experiment – they’d be gone after a week in my house!

mmmm- now i want some chocolate raisins. What a cute idea!  And don’t worry if someone isn’t a fan of raisins- you’ll never be able to please everyone.

You could also do chocolate covered espresso beans too.
