13 Foods Experiencing Shortages in MN + IA + IL in 2023

Expect shortages of these 13 items in stores in Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois, Wisconsin and across the United States

One of the craziest times of my life was when I walked into a grocery store in Minnesota in April 2020. I thought I was in a Marvel movie and Thanos came and took not only all the people, but all the bread, meat, cereal, granola, eggs, milk, toilet paper, and anything but canned lima beans… wait, that’s it there was a can.

I know you remember this moment in our lives. Thankfully we now have toilet paper, but unfortunately we are seeing prices on store shelves rising and further shortages are expected in Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois, Wisconsin and across the US in 2023

What NOT to do after seeing the list of shortage items in 2023

I remember when people hoarded toilet paper in their homes. Admit it, you had a lot more than you needed. My family said I was “part of the problem,” but the truth is I had multiple packages because Target had one of those deals where if you spent that much, you got a gift card. It was like they were asking me to stockpile toilet paper, so I did. I made this visit just before our world shut down… but took advantage of this sale because a friend tipped me off that Washington stores were out of toilet paper. I never thought this would happen here, but maybe the stores shouldn’t have been incentivized to buy more at the same time. I made $20 that day!

If stores don’t pay us to buy more items that are running out of stock and WE don’t wipe the shelves clean and start stocking, then we’re fine.

What item are you finding difficult right now?

I go first – Fiesta Corn. I put this in my chili and haven’t been able to find it since the pandemic hit. Does anyone have any leads on these cute, adorable little cans of corn and peppers? You can send me a note on my Facebook page – Jessica On The Radio – with references to this and what you’ve been finding difficult lately.

To learn more about how the price of gasoline has changed over the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the past 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the consumer price index (CPI) for regular unleaded gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.
