The Dow fell 251 points on Thursday and the Eurozone is falling ever more into shambles but that isn’t the most devastating news we’ve witnessed in recent days as Northeasterners are facing a huge shortage of Good Humor Bars. Three of the company’s ice cream bars, the Toasted Almond, Chocolate Eclair and Candy Center Crunch are nearly impossible to find in certain parts of the country.
Good Humor executives say the lack of supply is caused because of higher than normal demand brought about by a hotter than normal spring.
A rep for the company recently announced:
“We are confident that all issues will be resolved by mid-summer.”
Mid-summer might not be soon enough as a Long Island lawmaker called a press conference on Thursday to discuss this crucial matter with concerned citizens.
It’s not just consumers who are feeling the devastation of the Good Humor Bars shortage, according to one ice cream truck owner in an interview with the AP:
“The Toasted Almond’s such an old-time thing from the 1950s. It’s just such a basic thing we’ve always had.”
West coast buyers are not big toasted almond eaters so they haven’t felt the pain and anguish felt by Northeasterners.
Okay so maybe the issue isn’t quite so bad as reported, on the other hand it does highlight exactly how hot the spring and summer months in America have been, so bad that we have eaten all the ice cream bars! Also what’s up with lawmakers calling press conferences over the issue?
