Really? There were only a handful of cars outside the Westbrook Safeway in the evening. I hit the Co-op off 12 Mile Coulee around 7 and there were less than a dozen shoppers in there. Fully stocked, including some mini-marshmallows.

I've been surviving the pandemic pretty well but the shortage of Claussen pickles might be the last straw.

Join the protest. Diet Dr Pepper is very hard to find these days.

Any canned flavor that is not one of the big sellers is a tough find these days due to the aluminum can shortage. Wife has been having a tough time finding tonic this year.

So true, you can find the large bottles, usually a store brand, but hard to find the smaller cans of Schweppes or Canada Dry.

The pickles are out of stock for the same reason, except it’s recycled glass instead of aluminum.
