Oreo Gingerbread Houses Are So Hard To Find In Canada They're Selling For $150 On Ebay
They're almost impossible to find in retail stores!
Earlier this year, it was revealed that Canadian Tire would be selling the Oreo Gingerbread Christmas Houses in Canada, and we were all thrilled! With a promised launch date of October 25th, we were all counting down the days until we could get our hands on this new take on the age-old tradition. However, now that October 25 has come and gone, it seems that theare almost impossible to find, so they’re being sold on eBay for up to $150!
Back in early-October, news of Oreo’s brand-new gingerbread houses caught the attention of sweet-lovers across Canada and the U.S. When Canadian Tire that they’d be stocking the tasty houses from October 25, we thought it would be easy to get our hands on this festive treat, especially so far ahead of Christmas.
However, with October now in the past, it seems that the little houses are actually almost impossible to get a hold of, and now we want one more than ever!
As of November 2, the product already seems to be discontinued in many of Canadian Tire’s stores, and is listed as completely sold out in a number of others. While there might be a couple of boxes left in a store near you if you’re lucky, these festive houses are selling for the big-bucks online, and there’s only a limited amount left.
Last month, Oreo released details about their Oreo Holiday Chocolate Cookie House Kit, and this little house is unsurprisingly popular.
Each Oreo Holiday House kit comes ready-to-make with chocolate cookie pieces, pre-made icing, Oreo cookies, and Oreo mini cookies. The pack also includes fruity gummies and candy jewels, perfect for decorating this tasty take on an age-old tradition.
If you’re willing to spare no expense to get your hands on one of these festive little houses, they’re now selling on eBay, but only for the big-bucks.
In one Canadian eBay listing, five little Oreo houses are being sold for a whopping $150 plus $20 shipping.
On another Canadian eBay listing, just one house is selling for $35 plus $20 shipping!
Narcity has reached out to Canadian Tire for additional stocking information. This article will be updated when a response has been received.
If you've managed to get hold of one of these mega-rare gingerbread houses this year, congratulations! It might just be the hardest gift to get your hands on this Christmas.
