The Most Ridiculous Items on ‘Oprah’s Favorite Things’ 2017 List

Author: Greg Hewitt
Oprah has released her annual list of favorite things. This year’s edition includes 102 items–and if you want them all, it will cost you roughly $14,000. Some of the stuff is pretty standard (books, a TV, etc.), but others are a little ridiculous unless you have an Oprah-sized budget.
Here are five of the silliest items that made the media mogul’s cut (check out the full list at the link):
Four fancy chocolate bars for $50. Are your Hershey bars made with pure olive oil? No? You’ll need these, then.
A $69 chicken pie. Oprah says this pie is “the closest to homemade” she’s ever tasted. She could easily make this pie for a sixth of the price, but we’ll let that slide.
A $45 “Gratitude” jar. This jar – which includes cards on which you write what you’re grateful for – is the fancy, not-free version of giving your loved ones a recycled sauce jar and a stack of Post-It notes.
A beautiful luxury home for birds you don’t own. These very beautiful little bird houses cost between $91 and $201, and will ensure that the local wildlife have a place to come home to after long days of seed eating.
Five pounds of blueberries. Just a big box of blueberries! Flash frozen! From Maine! Under $50!
I’ll add a sixth–not so much ridiculous as it is just sort of odd. It’s an OLIVE TREE, for a mere $53.  Oprah says, quote, “Yes, I have olive trees in my bedroom . . . A tree is a forever gift.  It’s sunshine and earth and water, and it just grows better with time.”
