Looks like Joe Biden is already on track to ruin Halloween, too, as candy makers are starting to warn that there may be a candy shortage for trick-or-treating.
According to Reuters, Hersey Chocolate Co. is warning that it is already foreseeing a cocoa shortage, among other ingredients, coming this year.
Per the wire service:
Pandemic-induced global supply chain disruptions and the Russia-Ukraine war have crunched supplies of cocoa, edible oil and other food ingredients, pinching production lines of packaged food companies around the world.
Hershey Chief Executive Officer Michele Buck said those issues, along with the company’s focus on meeting demand during non-holiday periods, would lead to a likely shortage during Halloween, but added that sales will still top last year.
The period around the Halloween holiday in October is Hershey’s busiest time of the year, making up about 10% of the company’s annual sales, as kids and their parents stock up on Twizzlers, Jolly Ranchers and Kit Kat bars.
Is there any season or celebration Joe Biden is not ruining this year?Commentary
