New York Treat for Wedding Welcome Basket

Hi there!

I'm looking for a recommendation on an inexpensive treat made in New York that I can include in the Welcome Baskets for all of our out of town guests for my wedding.

The treat must....
1) Be individually wrapped
2) Have some labeling (even if discreet) that says New York City or New York, NY on it
3) Cost less than $2 a piece

To give you an far in the basket, we have the following items that all have a significance to where we've grown up, lived, or have family:
- Golden Flake Potato Chips - Birmingham, Alabama
- Goo Goo Clusters - Nashville, Tennessee
- The LCR Game - Buffalo, New York
- TBD - Atlanta, GA
- TBD - New York, NY

I'm looking for some creative and fun items that people might get excited about, but I am open to anything, so please share your suggestions.

This is a strange one, I know, so thank you in advance!!!!

    What is the LCR game.

      LCR is absolutely incredible. It's easy, fun, addictive, and we have to share it. This site has the detail:

      Appreciate your recommendation. I should have mentioned that my wedding is on the Gulf Coast, so we need to transport these, too! Thank you!

    2. I was going to say Eleni's cookies but that might blow your budget! Maybe a little yellow taxi cab? You can probably get them cheap in Chinatown. Eleni's cookies might also make yellow taxi cookies if you prefer something edible.

      1. Elenis' custom homemade cookies are really cute and a fun thing to add in.

        1. Try They have tins of mints with various New York scenes, chocolate bars, and an animal cracker type of box with NY cab shaped cookies.

          Price looks right and you might find something for Atlanta as well. Congratulations and best of luck on your wedding.

            How about individually wrapped black and white cookies from Zaro's?

              Can't get much better then a Black & White!

          2. Congrats!
            In case you want to go with more non-edible ideas, Zabars sells mugs and coffee scoops for $1 each (last time I saw 'em, at least).

              And another non-edible idea:

              And inside you could put something edible--maybe bagel chips (would they fit)?
