Sold-Out Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Thanksgiving Pies Show Up on eBay With Big Price Tag, Remember It’s the Season of Giving to Yourself

We don’t know why the geniuses at Reese’s didn’t think of this sooner, but you may have heard recently about the debut of the Peanut Butter Cup Thanksgiving Pie. It’s a 9-inch, 3.25 pound solid peanut butter cup. Basically, think a deep-dish pizza, but made of that trademark crumbly peanut butter and smooth chocolate combination. Heaven in your mouth, right?

“When you bring together friends and family for Thanksgiving dinner, no table spread is complete without dessert,” Bo Jones, Reese’s senior associate brand manager, said about the sweet holiday offering. “At Reese’s, we wanted to create a dessert that everyone wants a piece of. You can thank us later.”

Three thousand of these beauties went on sale for $44.99 – and sold out within hours.

But don’t go crying into your boring old pumpkin pie just yet – there’s still one more option to nab one of these mouthwatering masterpieces – eBay. Yes, the online auction site has seen a slew of postings pop up in which people are reselling their untouched pies for anywhere from $154 to $449 and up. You better place your bid soon, though, because competition is heating up.

“Let’s face it, homemade pies are great, but a giant Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup is better … The holidays are stressful, but winning Thanksgiving doesn’t have to be,” Jones said. Well, this is all starting to feel a little bit stressful to us, but we aren’t opposed to taking out a loan to getting one of those pies on our holiday table. We can’t even promise we’d share.
