A cancelled supermarket order of 1.09 million frozen fruit pies were put on eBay (UK site). The current bid is 500,000 pounds.
Pressplay Ltd, who specialise selling on surplus or unwanted goods, started the ten-day online auction with an opening bid of 99p for the entire 76-tonne load.
They hope someone will jump at the ‘rare opportunity’ to acquire the 70gram pies, which would reach 90,000ft if stacked on top of each other.
A spokesman for the company said the 13,000 cases of 84 pies equates to 130 pallets loaded onto five articulated lorries. They are currently in storage in Warwickshire.
The order was meant for British supermarket Asda.
