If you’re curious about gingerbread play-dough, it is just like any other version. The only difference is it’s a beautiful brown color and has a rich enticing aroma, just like real gingerbread.

It looks almost like the real thing, minus one thing…taste. You won’t have to worry about your kids eating this dough. Although it smells good, it tastes every bit as yucky as every day play-dough.
