MA/Boston food wedding favor idea?

Getting married in Boston this fall and trying to think of a clever favor idea. Necco waffers have been considered but with the pastels they are almost too traditional! Has anyone seen small jars of fluff? any other ideas???

      Does it have to be food, or food related? Nice oyster knife?

    2. I recently received these chocolate covered cranberries at a local wedding.

        cranberry jam or chutney would be nice too.

      2. LA Burdick has gourmet chocolate in the shape of mice and penguins. My fiance wanted these but I said they cost too much. I actually don't like the flavor of their mice or penguins that much. They start at 3.25$ per piece.

        We ended up deciding to do Chocolate/candy molds of lips and moustaches. We figured they would be fun for photos and people could have fun with them at the tables. They are also very cheap but DIY. You can find molds online or at Michaels Craft Store.

        1. Boston Baked Bean candy?

          1. like that idea of choco covered cranberries. keychain w/ a clam on it? little sample size jugs of maple syrup(new england really, but very delish).

            1. So many fun ideas - I love mini Whoopie Pies from chococoa bakery in Newburyport.

              Mike's pastry will come to your wedding, set up a table and fill cannoli to order.

              Some local orchards will deliver warm apple cider donuts at the end of the night so everyone can leave with a fresh baked treat.

              A dozen eggs bakery in VT makes cute Boston sugar cookies - red sox jerseys, newbury st signs, swan boats etc.

              Good luck!

              1. Granted ours was a smaller affair, but our favors were awesome. We had a waiter's wine keys (screwpulls) engraved with our names and the date and location. They cost just under $5 each when done in bulk. People still make mention them 3 years later.

                1. We made lime-flavored little chocolate truffles that went into gift boxes. If you have a lot of out-of-town guests, I would steer clear of gels, liquids, or things that might need to be in checked luggage when they fly out in case they only carry-on.
