I've missed my Hormel canned tamales.  Yes, I know, but I got addicted as a child.  My mother did it.


@Kachina624 I have the opposite!  So strange.  I don't mind the others but I prefer iceberg when I can get it.  

 

I have one of those addictions too.  In utero is my excuse and she has admitted it. 🤣

Always encounter a problem with pasta, any kind, any brand, and it has not changed...was able to find a box of this and a box of that over the last couple months, but I cannot be guaranteed I will get what I want at any time shopping!  For a while the shelves were literally empty of pasta. Fortunately I always keep a decent supply but when it got low, could not find rotini or linguini at all for a while...still have not been able to get quinoa....

Only recently as Walmart got back in their version of Hot Dog Sauce.  My local grocery store and Walmart neither as had Wolf Brand Hot Dog Sauce since last spring.  I love chili but it as so many calories.  Hot dog sauce is way less in calories so it a great substitute on omelets ect........

Clorox Wipes are never.

Paper towels are a 50/50 shot.

No real issues with anything else for me.

Only Clorox wipes consistently. Other things I don't get but usually can get it next trip. Diet Coke and Diet DrPepper were hard to come by a couple of weeks ago but seem to be available now. I'm drinking more water so I'm not sure about the soda.
