Last year there were severe shortages here of yeast for making bread. I had to order some directly from China. Each time it took a month to get here and I couldn't understand a single word on the labels. Incredibly cheap and it worked fine.Flour, all-purpose or strong, has been in low stock for quite some time. A few months back, it was almost nowhere to be found.
The big brown truck just now delivered all 32 pounds. Fortunately, it also delivered three bottles of high-end wine.I've found it very difficult to find Post Grape Nuts cereal...I ended up buying 32 pounds of the stuff [on Amazon.com because that was the smallest quantity I could find].
Won't it get stale?The big brown truck just now delivered all 32 pounds. Fortunately, it also delivered three bottles of high-end wine.
EDIT: I just now learned that my wife is eating it a lot less than I thought. This means the batch should last close to a year.
I think not. Even if it does get stale, I really didn't have any practical choice. It was the smallest quantity I could find at a reasonable price. Even if I got half the quantity from other providers, the total cost would have been the same. Having the cereal on hand is important because I eat it for breakfast every day including when I go on vacation.Won't it get stale?
I am trying to get a Brompton and it is nowhere to be found.If there are any cyclists or wannabe cyclists on here, bikes and bike parts are seeing a major shortage worldwide. Taiwan I believe accounts for about 70% of worldwide bike manufacturing. They've been slammed just trying to keep up with demand as well as sourcing raw materials, slowing shipments to a trickle. Same goes for weightlifting equipment last I checked!
