Gingerbread is a synonymous taste connected with Christmas but when was the last time you have ever seen anyone eat any? Of course there are Gingerbread houses made from gingerbread, they come in kits that can be done with your family or for the very advanced house builder they are created from scratch and crafted into large beautiful structures that can delight the young and old alike, but really does anyone ever eat them?
We often see gingerbread cookies at Christmas time but they are usually sugar cookies cut in the shapes of gingerbread boys and girls so that doesn't really count.
Each year at Christmas time I buy the holiday flavors of coffee for my Keurig coffee machine. It contains The Holiday Blend which is always gone first, French Toast is my favorite and gone quickly, even Eggnog seems to disappear, yikes, Gingerbread, not so much. I find myself offering it to guests well into August and here it is Christmas season and I still have gingerbread K-cups left from last year.
So. I could be wrong but I am thinking that even though it seems to be an important part of the Christmas season no one really wants to eat it. What do you think???
So to celebrate the people who actually eat gingerbread. I have created Gingerbread Boy and a Gingerbread Girl ornaments.
