  • I read that they had a bad pumpkin crop last year, so there will be a smaller supply of the canned this year.

    A lot of grocery stores only carry it seasonally anyway.

    I went looking for it a couple of weeks ago. Winco had it, if you have one of those near you. :)

  • Libbey's has always been the best for my recipes. I tried other brands and always wish I hadn't. Hope you find it...me too (I haven't looked yet).

  • I like the Libby's. I bought 5 cans of it this week because I heard there was going to be a shortage. I'll probably pick up some more on my next shopping trip if they still have it.

  • I have always used Libby's pumpkin. I also heard that there was a shortage predicted because of bad crop. Luckily, I found it in the grocery store, and bought enough for this year and next.

  • You won't be able to find much pumpkin in the stores this year.. There is a shortage... I was supposed to get some for my cat (yes, i wrote that right, my cat..) It was announced on the news about 2 months ago, that there is a shortage due to the weather, so good luck finding any... If you do, let me know... In the meantime, I am shelling out mega bucks on baby food (sweet potatos) for my CAT.... LOL
