SELECTED JUDGES' COMMENTS

The Luxx Tea & Raspberry Tbar is a GREAT wedding favor. As well as the Seleuss Chocolates. The [Chocolatines] 24k chocolates were really creative. I like the flavors and textures and quality of LUXX chocolates. Also the Wim Tas line.
Beijo de Chocolat 6-piece box. 2 white chocolates, 2 Dark Chocolates, 2 Milk Chocolates. The lemon and lime chocolates were fabulous with my bottle of sauvignon blanc. The Bees Knees for a rustic wedding. Loved chubby chipmunk...delish!
We loved the Bees Knees for the flavor and the fun packaging The Chocolatines by Sweet Endevours we felt would be a great fit for our magazine. The diamonds in the chocolate was such a fun touch! SELEUSS Chocolates 1 Piece Gold Favor Box w/ { Greek Rose } Chocolate Truffle
There were a few where I really liked one flavor in the package but hated the other(s), which meant I couldn't give the overall package a high score. I'd recommend packaging flavors separately for proper testing. Don't get too wrapped-up in the customization of the packages. The older, more sophisticated audience that would pay for high-end chocolates is more concerned with the decor, than names and dates. If anything, a simple monogram would be sufficient. I think smaller size chocolates/truffles are more manageable for the wedding party guests
