We’re using a local chocolatier for our favours, and we’re trying to figure out which kinds of chocolate people would like the best. The cheapest option is the solid chocolate hearts. Very cute, very delicious, very safe, but kind of plain. We thought it would be cute to have a white chocolate heart and a dark chocolate heart (white for bride, dark for groom), but isn’t milk chocolate everyone’s favourite? Do we dare leave it out? And lots of people find white chocolate too sweet. Does taste trump esthetics?
We can upgrade to include other kinds of chocolate, but it is SO hard to pick flavours that everyone will like!
We’re both chocoholics, so we will be happy with any option. We want to do what will make the most guests happy.
Your opinions are greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance! 🙂

I think white and dark chocolate are both acquired tastes. I love them, but fewer people do. I think tastes, in this case, do trump aesthetics… because otherwise, you are going to be left with a lot of favors on tables. Maybe a carmel or peanut butter filling?!

I love both white and dark chocolates so I voted for that. I think you should just do what you think is best, I’m sure there would be heaps of people like me that would be more than happy to take the extras that people leave behind 🙂

I was at a wedding where the favor was the Godiva cocolate hearts, 1 dark chocolate and 1 milk chocolate. there were ZERO left behind. simple and classic and delish! Oh, then I found out it was $5/box, INSANE!

I LOVE dark chocolate and white chocolate so I would be very happy with those but I do agree milk chocolate is more popular. I would go with what you like the best because I’m sure they will not be left behind. Alternatively, I think the idea of caramel or peanut butter or other flavors is good too. You could do an assortment so guests could “trade” if they want.

I think either the white/dark or the white/milk would get the bride groom thing across. I personally prefer milk chocolate (white is too sweet, dark is too moody and complex (I think of it more like a nice wine rather than munchable candy)) but I’d eat any of the three. Even if some people don’t like it and leave it behind, what’s the problem? More chocolate for you! Win-win.

@tobeap: Dark and white chocolate hearts sound absolutely delicious!

In my group of friends, dark chocolate seems to be often left behind. Milk chocolate is always extremely well received, and white seems to be liked as well.

dark chocolate is actually more popular than milk but there are folks who love milk and will not eat dark.

Not a big fan of white–would eat it, but not my fave. I would do a milk and dark heart.

Sounds yummy, I voted dark and milk.

I like only milk chocolate (I’ll eat some types of dark chocolate, as long as it’s not too dark, but I definitely prefer milk), and FI likes only dark chocolate (the darker the better!). Neither of us will eat white chocolate. My mother, however, loves white chocolate and milk chocolate, but won’t eat dark chocolate. You’re never going to please everyone. I think milk plus dark will be safest – I suspect that there’s a greater number of people who like only dark than who like only white – most people who like white will also like milk (although admittedly this is a somewhat biased view based on my family’s preferences!).

Thank you so much, ladies! Your input is truly appreciated. Looks like we can’t really go wrong, no matter which combination we pick!
