November 18, 2009 – Eggo Shortage – Oh the Horror!

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 — maybe have half an Eggo in one sitting — then it’ll last longer,” said Resciniti.

What then after the Eggos are all gone?  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!
