Morning Coffee: Can you build an awesome gingerbread house?

Today's Amazon Deal of the Day is the pictured Gingerbread House Kit,which reminded me of last year, when Alex and I made a gingerbread house using a kit I picked up at Trader Joe's for less than $10. The one pictured is on sale today for $19.97, but it has a list price of $50 - I mean seriously, who pays $50 for something like this? Even $20 is pushing it - although this one includes a snowman and gingerbread kid, plus all of the candy, so if you can make it look decent (and last year's experience shows that I could not), then it would be worth the cost of not having to bake your own gingerbread.

    Just so you know, that gingerbread house looks exactly like the one I bought last year from Wal-Mart for $10.

    @Maranda - Interesting. There isn't a Walmart near me, but I'll have to take a closer look at the ones at Target. Thanks!
