The Great Canned Pumpkin Shortage of 2009
Now it's really time to panic: An Eggo waffle shortage is one thing, but now there's a canned pumpkin shortage, and right before Thanksgiving? Nestlé, who owns the Libby brand of canned pumpkins, announced today that it might not have enough pumpkin to satisfy demand, blaming pumpkin scarcity on things like "soggy fields" and "fungus." Sounds suspiciously like a marketing strategy to drum up sales. Either way, pumpkin waffles are such a luxury right now!
