Oscar Party

griffin19 Feb 19, 2009 10:27 AM

Hi Chowhounders,
I'm looking for favors to give out at my annual Oscar party. Has anyone seen these items in their recent travels:

-- chocolate Oscar statuette (or for that matter, any mini Oscar statuettes?)
-- mini champagne (individual serving bottles) that's NOT Frexeinet?

And while we're on the subject, if you have any favorite Oscar menu ideas, please pass them along. Thanks!

    Definitely something Indian for Slumdog. Some kind of chaat would go well with cocktails.

      I doubt you'll find mini Oscars anywhere (chocolate or otherwise). The Academy is very protective of that statue and its likeness so unless someone is out there making "bootleg" mini Oscars, you won't find anything official.

        Piper Sonoma makes them (straw included!) but you have to live in a free state (AKA NJ or DE) to get them!

          Thanks, Boognish & Bigley9, great suggestions. Philly Ray-- I did see chocolate Oscars on Amazon though I doubt they're "official." They're always sold out, so maybe they're illegal? Or maybe just popular :) .... I go through this every year, you would think I'd have a system by now! Hoping I can find the Piper Sonoma in DE this weekend....

            I was at Total Wine (in DE) a couple days ago and they have 4-packs of little champagne bottles there, I wasn't paying close attention to the the brand but it wasn't Freixenet, I think they had several types.

            Try Lores or the chocolate place at the reading terminal. They might have something.
