HERE WE GO: Wall Street Journal Reports ‘Thanksgiving Dinner Staples’ Getting ‘Hard to Find’

posted by Hannity Staff - 11.09.21

A new report from the Wall Street Journal claims “Thanksgiving Dinner Staples” are getting harder to find as supply-chain problems, inflation, and labor shortages continue to strangle the US recovery.

“The supply-chain crunch is about to hit another part of American life: Thanksgiving dinner. Supplies of food and household items are 11% lower than normal as of Oct. 31, according to data from market-research firm IRI. That figure isn’t far from the bare shelves of March 2020, when supplies were down 13%,” reports the Journal.

“For grocery shoppers this holiday season, it means that someone with 20 items on their list would be out of luck on two of them,” adds the WSJ. “Although U.S. supermarket operators started purchasing holiday items early, aiming to avoid shortages, many holiday essentials are already in short supply.”

Items already hard to find include Turkey, cranberry sauce, sweet potatoes, yams, stuffing, pies, and aluminum foil.

“Essential ingredients might not be the only things absent from Thanksgiving dinner this year. Guests traveling will be faced with car rental and gas prices the highest they have been in seven years,” adds the newspaper.

posted by Hannity Staff - 11.19.18

The northeastern United States is rapidly preparing for the “coldest Thanksgiving Day on record” as temperatures are poised to plunge to levels 15 to 25 degrees below the normal average.

According to weather.com, a giant “arctic air mass” will descend upon the region from Canada as early as Wednesday; sending temperatures down to numbers normally seen in early January.

“A strong area of high pressure from the Arctic Circle will descend southward across Canada and into the Northeast, sending temperatures plummeting toward levels more common on New Year’s Day, not Thanksgiving Day,” writes the website.

Historical records show New York City has had only three days since 1870 when the high-temperature did not exceed 30 degrees; with the coldest day of just 26 degrees dating back to November 28, 1901.
