Neiman Marcus’ annual “Christmas Book” has become well known for its extravagant, over-the-top gift items.
There are plenty of fancy food items—usually caviar tins and plenty of gold-leaf-encrusted sweets—but this year, one food item went viral for all the wrong reasons.
Luxury retailer offers collard greens, that staple of down-home Southern cuisine, for $66, plus $15.50 shipping.
For that “low” price, you’ll get four 12-ounce trays of “fully cooked and frozen” veggies “seasoned with just the right amount of spices and bacon,” ready to heat and serve to eight to 10 diners.
Do you know how many pounds of greens you could get for $66 at a grocery store?
Now, you see a reason Neiman Marcus has earned the nickname “Needless Markup” and why the collard greens quickly became the subject of mockery on Twitter.
But, whatever we write, and think all Neiman Marcus collard greens sold out!
