A story on the newswire today details the implications of an “Eggo” shortage. Evidently, two Eggo factories are off-line and there is a nationwide shortage. People are taking it hard and exacerbating the shortage by stocking up.
Here’s part of the story of the Eggo shortage from USA Today:
Stay-at-home mom Joey Resciniti says she bought one of the last two boxes of Eggos at a Walmart in Cranberry Township, Pa., on Monday. The frozen waffles are a favorite of her 4-year-old daughter, Julia.
“We have eight of them, and if we ration those â€” maybe have half an Eggo in one sitting â€” then it’ll last longer,” said Resciniti.
What then after the Eggos are all gone?Â Oh the horrors of having to ration Eggos for a four-year-old. Perhaps the situation will become so desperate that this stay at home mom will have to make a batch of waffles at home and freeze them herself!
