When I sell my things to people I like to give a good impression and I like to make sure customers feel like they are getting a bargin and have been treated well. So usually I put little handmade chocolates and things in with whatever I've sold (what an anti-climax) and I was going to do this at a craft fair and I wondered if I would actually be allowed because I'm pretty sure if your selling food or drink you need a licence or something so I was wondering if it was the same with just giving it away.

Thanks!

I'd be worried about meltiness! 

I have no idea if that would count as food vending--you aren't selling them, after all.  At a holiday fair last year I had a tin of chocolates on my table, and all seemed fine!

Honestly? If I received home made chocolates in that manner, I'd throw them away. I would recommend that you use wrapped, commercially made chocolates.

I wouldn't do it simply because of things like food allergies.  It may be better just to set out a bowl or plate of commercially made things, like jadey_mcshadey said.

I did that last year...I set out a bowl of chocolate kisses...if nothing else the free chocolate brought people to my table so they at least glanced at what I had....or brought little kids (who brought their parents!!!)
