I ran short, so I sent my husband out for more Earths Balance vegan buttery sticks. The stores are all crazy now because its the night before Thanksgiving- I would have rather stayed home- lol.<br>
He went to 5 stores (where they carry them consistently) and they were all sold out.<br><br>
I would say I'm bummed because I can't make my pies now, but I'm not. This is a sign that there are tons of vegans here!

There has to be a rational, scientific explanation for it....

Maybe the Earths Balance truck had an accident on its way into town?<br><br>
Or my husband took an hour and a half nap in a parking lot?

that is a perfectly rational explanation!<br><br>
He found Earths balance vegan shortening sticks. Hopefully these pies turn out okay!

It's bummer he couldn't find the sort you originally wanted, but it's great to hear that things like that are really in demand. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/yes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":yes:">

This is how I felt yesterday when the vegetable broth was all gone off the shelves but the chicken broth was not. Of course there's not as much veggie broth to choose from and more chicken broth is being sold I'm sure, but at least there's a demand for the veggie broth.

Any reports of tofurky disappearing off the shelf?<br>
Maybe that will conclude it for all of us...

When we went to the store the other night do so some shopping for my pumpkin cupcakes they only had one container of vegan cream cheese left on the shelf. Like you I was bummed but also had that glimmer of..hope that the stock boy wasn't just too lazy hahaha.

That's awesome!<br><br>
And I know that feeling all too well. I can't count how many times I've gone to the store and been mad because the whole non-dairy ice cream section was wiped out, or all the almond milk was gone, or all the Daiya. First you're annoyed, then you're happy, then you're annoyed again... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">

Funny you should say that. When we went to buy a Tofurky for Thanksgiving here the store we usually shopped at was completely sold out and even had a sign up saying they would restock soon since it was a 'hot' item. We had to go somewhere else to find it, but I thought it was kind of cool.

I get this a lot in the freezer section, when I can't get my sausages/burgers/whatever junk food I'm craving. It's kind of bittersweet - pleased that loads of other people are buying them, but annoyed that you can't have it now.

The shelves are often empty when I'm looking for my Silk creamer or EB in the tub. Makes me mostly mad...never thought about the other side of it, that maybe more people are turning away from dairy. That's cool and and all, but I want what I want when I want it! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:">
