With the holiday season quickly approaching, it is time to deck our halls with gingerbread houses! This year, why not take a break from the classic homemade gingerbread house and pick up a pre-made kit from your local Costco? Let’s take a look at why you should buy one of these scrumptious selections.
If you don’t have a Costco card to enjoy Oreos for Christmas wanting to be gingerbread, Amazon has a variety of Oreo kits you can get right away.
This year’s Gingerbread Man/House release at Costco is the StockMeyer 3 Gingerbread Men kit. It looks like the kit has all the bits to dress up as little or a lot. Since there are 3 in a box, each family member can have their own to get creative. We do love joining in together on a single house so we will watch out for those too.
It looks like the kit is only available in the store as it doesn’t come up on the Costco web site. We found them in the holiday candy area of our local store.
