$34.99 for 4 caramel and chocolate covered apples. I could do this for $4 tops!
or even more ridiculous...
$23.99 for one jumbo apple! Seriously...who would pay that?
$8.99 for a 12 oz. tin of Peppermint Bark
I make this in big batches myself every year with some white chocolate bark and crushed peppermint candies (I get the candies from the Dollar Tree)
$2.49 on sale for what is basically brown sugar with some cinnamon to sprinkle on your baked sweet potatoes.
$44.99 for 2 pounds of old fashioned candy in a tin.
This could be recreated with the old fashioned candy that you can get at the Dollar Tree and put in a thrifted or recycled Christmas tin for under $4.00
I'm sorry but is anyone else either shaking their head in disbelief or rolling on the floor laughing at these prices? And it's not just Bed, Bath and Beyond. Look at any number of other websites that offer "Holiday Food" and you will be shocked at what you find there also. Any of the above and more could easily be made at home frugally, wrapped up nicely and given as a Fancy Smanchy gift and you get the satisfaction of knowing that it was done with love, creativity and on a budget!
