Attention Hot & Spicy Lovers…Sriacha Shortage Looms
Pepper shortage is the cause
Huy Fong Foods recently released a letter suggesting a Sriracha shortage may be coming due to a pepper shortage. The peppers used to make the tasty sauce come from Mexico, which is currently experiencing a drought.
People are starting to have difficulty finding the sauce in stores, and there may be a limit to how many bottles you can purchase. The company hopes to resume normal production in the fall. (newser)
