Heston Blumenthal Christmas Pudding on eBay

No primary category set

People are going mad for the with the whole orange baked into the middle. As a special sold in Waitrose supermarkets for just £13.99, the pudding has a whole candied orange in the centre.

If you did buy one of these and are after some last minute funds towards your Christmas then it might be worth listing your pudding on eBay. One and eBay research company Terapeak reveals that a massive £19,755 of puddings have been sold. That’s 114 puddings sold at an average price of £173.29 each, not a bad return for your original £13.99 outlay.

Three of the puddings have sold for over £1000.00, with another eleven sold between £500.00 and £1000.00. Even the lowest price pudding to be sold on eBay fetched £35.01, which isn’t a bad return giving you plenty of profit to purchase an alternative for Christmas day.

  1. 2 things:

    1. I, Wonder, how many ‘wanna be cooks’ out there are doing one too?…..Can’t be that difficult!!.

    2. Up to £1k, and I thought there was a recession out in the UK.

    Wanted the Bahamas for Xmas, but the Canaries will have to so. That’s a Grand (£1k) well spent….

  2. In the Daily Mail Saturday 11th there was a Waitrose £10 off voucher-buy £60 get £10 off. So on reading this item I thought about buying £60 of Christmas Puds and getting £10 off and selling them all on ebay. Trouble is I do not know(or care) where my local(probably 50 miles or more away) Waitrose is. Voucher valid to December 19th. If it is of any use to you let me know and I will send it to you.

  3. Please note that the ‘buyer’ of the £1020 cake might not have been serious as s/he is not registered with eBay anymore, and the cake has been relisted as is currently at a more reasonable price of £36…
