Supermarkets being shorted
I have a beef and it is not about Burger Love. Although I am not a fan, in fact enjoyed a veggie burger in this month of April, with a gluten-free bun. Yea for Laura’s Country Kitchen in Mount Stewart.
But what I’m upset about is the fact that a very good dairy milk substitute, Rice Dream Original is not to be found in any P.E.I. supermarkets and I’ve run out.
I began drinking this product four years ago, when dealing with some health issues. And I love it. I tell you, a cold glass of Rice Dream goes well with a warm cookie. And it works great in my morning tea as well.
I have consistently called and gone into the local supermarkets in Charlottetown and Stratford not finding it.
The refrain I’ve been hearing is we were shorted. But one very diligent young lady at Atlantic Superstore called into the U.S. to the makers of the product and found there is a problem with production.
So how long do I have to do without it? That remains to be seen.
Are we such a small province that we have these inconsistencies in product supply? I wanted to buy a can of ginger ale in Charlottetown and had to go to four stores to find one. And I saw large quantities of energy drinks in these stores. Those should be banned. Enough said.
