Knife in the heart
Peanut butter is going to become scarce and spendy.
Oh, whatever! Why don’t our masters just mark up ramen to $5?
I shouldn’t give them ideas.
Seems…oh woe…there was a failure in last year’s peanut crop—too hot or something.
Peter Pan, Jif, Smuckers—the lot—are raising prices by as much as 40%!
A ton of raw peanuts has gone from $450 to $1,150!
Ninety percent of households eat the stuff—good protein source.
Oh—and this is nifty—chocolate is also on the hit list.
I notice the slant in this story, though—Huffpo—it went from a hot season to “climate change” causing all this sandwich mayhem.
Still—peanut butter…not fair!
What can you do? Stock up! The prices haven’t hit yet.
