Remember when the media went crazy about a year ago reporting that there was a rice shortage? And every fool ran out and bought rice just because they were afraid they wouldn't be able to get any even if they didn't like rice? And how, oddly, no stores really reported that there was any problem getting rice?
Now it's EGGO waffles.
Kellogg Co. says there will be a nationwide shortage of its popular Eggo frozen waffles until next summer because of interruptions in production at two of the four plants that make them.So how many fools do you think are going to run out and buy a couple of boxes "just in case"? Come on. They're fucking frozen waffles. And they aren't the only frozen waffles.
The company's Atlanta plant was shut down for an undisclosed period by a September storm that dumped historic amounts of rain in the area. Meanwhile, several production lines at its largest bakery in Rossville, Tenn., are closed indefinitely for repairs, company spokeswoman Kris Charles said in an e-mail.
It will take until the middle of 2010 before shelves around the country are stocked at pre-shutdown levels.
