There was never any question I’d do food favors…. they’re my favorite! My first idea was doing pretty chocolate covered pretzel rods I could make myself. Milk or dark chocolate with white chocolate drizzles, packed 2 rods to a bag with a tag “Love is Sweet.” Not super original, but super super tasty. Chocolate covered pretzels are my favorite!!
Then yesterday at the grocery I had another thought: FI’s absolute favorite sweet is gummy bears. He has me buy him 2-3 pounds of gummy bears in bulk every week at the grocery store (no joke. and its sick how thin he stays eating such crap! lol)
So then I thought, maybe we should do those too? So its like his and hers favorites? So here is the question:
Do we do BOTH for every place? Or alternate place settings with one or the other? I’m not 100% sure we could afford to do both for everyone so if people think that is the best option we might just pick one or the other.

I LOVE both choc covered pretzels AND gummi bears… so I voted both!
If you have to choose though, I think chocolate covered pretzels would probably be more popular across the board – I don’t know as many older people who will eat gummi candy, but most people love chocolate.

I’m game as long as chocolate is involved. How about chocolate covered gummi bears? 😛

Ditto DDW. I would think the pretzels would be more popular but they both have meaning to you. Are you going to put a note or something saying why you chose each? If you did that, you could alternate.

I vote for both! I know a decent amount of people who don’t eat or are allergic to chocolate and they really appreciate, if candy is given out or what-not, if there’s non-chocolate options.

@minutiae- i LIKE the way you think! haha I might have to experiment with this…..
@jeniRae- if we did both i would definitely explain why. Maybe a placard on the table explaining that they are each of our favorite sweets. This is still in the idea phase obviously 🙂

I say alternate. If guests don’t like what they got, they can trade with someone but I definitely like the idea of including both so it’s about both of you!

I am a gummi bear fanatic! I say go gummi!
We’re ordering some gummi flip flops for the Out of Town bags for adults and kids!

I love both! But I think chocolate cover pretzels look more wedding-y.
I guess it all depends in how will you pack the gummy bears cuz if you´re packing them in clear bags, maybe they will clash with you wedding colors, when chocolate cover pretzels in clear bags will look good with any color.
But again I’m a perfectionist, so if you are really into the idea of both you should do it, maybe it won´t clash:)

I like your ideas. I would say do both and alternate. That way, if someone doesn’t like one or the other, they can trade with someone else. Also, people could share their treats and have both.
