Oprah Winfrey fans will be happy to know that, after a two-year hiatus, the popular Favorite Things list — which caused her audience members to scream, cry, and/or faint upon its reveal — is making a comeback. You can view the full rundown in the December issue of O, The Oprah Magazine, available on November 6. On November 18, the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) will run a two-hour special devoted to the product roundup. But Winfrey's choices have already received some harsh criticism. Vanity Fair magazine has taken issue with some of the items on the list, like including a $450 bladeless fan Winfrey discovered while interviewing the Kardashians, calling it "obscure and realistically unnecessary." Also, as Gawker noted, many of the 48 items on the list contain are truffle-flavored foods. Where''s the variety? Commenter's' reactions were mixed, with one disappointed reader lamenting, "$88 for four bags of popcorn. Insane!" Another simply noted, "Oprah likes some expensive stuff." Can't argue with that.
