The only thing better than Christmas themed goodies is getting them at ridiculously low discounted prices in grocery stores at the end of the holidays.
If you’ve been to a Toronto grocery store this week, you’ve probably seen unsold gingerbread houses for sale at bargain prices, or maybe barley-sugar eggnog for just 25 cents.
The latter is on sale at Loblaws in Leslie and Lake Shore. Apparently, it was already heavily reduced to 44 cents last week, but it just wasn’t popular enough to sell for that price.
In fact, a commentator on Facebook wrote what many of us are probably thinking when they said “I don’t understand why someone thought [candy cane egg nog] was a good idea. “
Food discounts after major vacations are common throughout the year. Halloween candy gets big discounts after October 31st, and Valentine’s Day candy of all kinds is suddenly a steal after February 14th.
