It seems like every time you go to the store or try to order stuff online right now, something you need is out of stock.USA Todayput together a list of some common supplies that you might have trouble getting, and it includes some seriously vital products:
Ben and Jerry’s: Because of ingredient shortages, the ice cream maker is focusing on its most popular flavors, like Phish Food.
Coffee: A drought in Brazil has slowed production and transportation of coffee beans.
Heinz Ketchup Packets: With so may people ordering takeout, demand for those little ketchup packets is at an all-time high.
Rice Krispie Treats: Production is down mainly because of the ongoing strike at Kellogg’s plants.
Sour Patch Kids: Parent company Modelez says “limited availability” also applies to Swedish Fish and Toblerone.
Of course, there are also shortages of some actual staples, like chicken and other frozen meats, toilet paper and diapers. But remember: If you buy more than you need just to hoard it, you’re making the problem worse.
