This writer ran across an interesting piece of information. Yesterday, I visited my local 7 Eleven to get gas. Some banter between me and the store clerk took place, and during that exchange, the clerk told me that they were having trouble getting candy! Now, candy is a $37 billion industry in America. 7 Eleven is the 4th largest convenience store chain in America. So, what’s wrong with this picture?
Candy requires corn syrup in almost all instances. As such, if there is a grain shortage (corn is a grain), then the availability of corn is critical to candy. Next, there is a need to transport the product to its destination. At least in the case of 7 Eleven, they have large 18 wheel cross country trucks to deliver their goods. Those trucks are all powered by diesel fuel. Diesel has become quite expensive – a little higher than gasoline.
Although candy is a big industry, it is not as big as the food industry, nor is it quite as compelling to obtain candy over food. Nonetheless, the fact that candy is in short supply leads this writer to believe U.S. “President” Joe Biden’s promise of a food shortage is indeed real and coming quickly. Act accordingly for your own protection.
