Kelly’s Corner – Pumpkin Mania May Cause A Punkin’ Shortage!
WHERE'S THE PUMPKIN?
90% of the pumpkins in America come from central Illinois, and the crop is down almost one third this year because of record amounts of rain in June.The demand for pumpkin is as high as ever. BUT! Apparently, the pumpkins can't keep up with the demand. So if you want to make sure you can bake pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving, you might want to stock up on your pumpkin right now!
Libby's, the biggest pumpkin pie mix company in the country, thinks they will have just enough inventory to get everyone through the holidays....They think??? Yikes! Get your pumpkin now! A Libby's Spokswoman says, quote, "Once we ship the remainder of the 2015 harvest, we'll have no more to sell until harvest 2016."
