Neiman Marcus is known for its top-brand fashion and beauty labels, but it recently introduced the world to luxury collard greens for $66 — plus a $15.50 shipping fee — and the dish has sold out.[related]
The Neiman Marcus collard greens are “seasoned with just the right amount of spices and bacon,” according to the company’s website. It includes four 12-ounce trays that serve eight to 10 people.
Confusion has swept the internet as to why the price of this vegetable dish has been marked up so high.
“Unless you can’t get greens, and I don’t know anywhere in the U.S. where you can’t get greens anymore, you can get someone to cook them for you for less than $66,” Nathalie Dupree, author of Mastering the Art of Southern Cooking, told The Washington Post.
The frozen meal is currently sold out, but the Neiman Marcus website also recommends a $65, three-pound broccoli and cheese casserole containing broccoli, Cheddar, onions, wild mushrooms, Parmesan, and milk. Also, just in time for the Thanksgiving holiday, there’s the complete holiday turkey dinner by chef Kevin Garvin for $527, including shipping, exclusive to Neiman Marcus.
Don’t worry; you also get a free gift with either of these purchases.
