Originally posted by XanthosNZIf you have n distinct chocolates, there are n! possible arrangements in total. To find out how many have a distinct wrapped chocolate at the end, we designate one to be put at the end and arrange the rest, so the number of possible arrangements here is (r choose 1)*(n-1)!. The probability that the chocolates will be selected in an order represented by the second group is then:
Given a mixed box of chocolates containing n distinct chocolates, r of which are wrapped, there is a greater than r/n chance that the last remaining chocolate will be wrapped.
n > r
r != 0
n,r are natural numbers.

Aren't the wrapped chocolates usually the ones with alcohol inside? Maybe the majority of chocolate eaters doesnt like alcohol in chocolates. Especially during daytime when they have to work etc and shouldnt get drunk yet.
But I also think it's the fact that its wrapped. People are just too lazy.
