Attention all pumpkin lovers. It is my duty to inform you that something is going on with the availability of canned pumpkin. At least in my town. To my credit, last night, I did NOT bite off the head of the assistant store manager when he informed me "there was a problem with the shipment", AFTER I had walked up and down every aisle in the store looking for it before I asked. Young men apparently do not understand that giving that response to a woman looking forward to her first pumpkin baking experience of the season is on par with telling an addict in need of a fix they are "SOL". In other words... dangerous.
This morning, after a good nights sleep, I got up early and resumed the hunt. I went to another store, where they had a note indicating there was a problem with their shipment to save me from walking all over and working myself into a frenzy. AND, I did find 6 cans of a store brand right next to the empty spot for the Libby's canned pumpkin. Because I was feeling generous, I only bought four cans. Leaving two for a kindred spirit in serious need of pumpkin.
