FYI - there was a shortage of canned pumpkin last year in 2009, because there was so much rain. This year, because of the weather, the growing season ended up being short. So word on the street is that there will be a canned pumpkin shortage again this year.
Now don't go buying pallets of canned pumpkin, but next time you are in Costco, you might pick up a 3 pack or 2. I guess Coscto has a contract with the canned pumpkin distributors, so will get first dibs on distribution.
I guess last year when it was scarce, people were selling it on ebay. I already see some of that going on. Here are some of the last few completed sales....
4 – 15oz cans $36.00 plus $14.20 shipping
3 – 15oz cans $12.99 plus $12.00 shipping
9 – 15oz cans 39.99 plus $15.00 shipping
Just giving you a heads up!
