The products that even panic buyers don’t want to stock up on

Customers who have panicked have ambushed supermarkets and left the shelves because the corona virus outbreak has plunged them into a huge supply.

But it seems that a global pandemic is not making people desperate enough to buy some goods.

Photos of almost empty shelves show that there are products that even panic buyers will not stock up on.

While canned food, eggs, and toilet paper are scarce amid widespread storage, pineapple pizza, chocolate hummus, and anything with the word corona in it remain in stores – it’s just a shame there’s no demand for it.

Shoppers have taken to social media to share photos of the goods left on store shelves.

One person posted a photo of chocolate hummus saying that it was “somehow comforting amid coronavirus madness to know that people still feel * not * to buy #chocolate hummus and buffalo hummus.”

Alcohol sales are on the rise, as people have bought drinks in front of their homes after restaurants and bars have closed their doors.

But one beer brand seems to go against the trend, judging by photos on Twitter.

Boxes with Corona have been neglected in insanity because it seems that people don’t take any chances of enticing fate by drinking from a drink that shares its name with the virus.

Then there’s the plant-based food, with shelves still piled high with meat-free alternatives.

Since the meat shelves are empty, this suggests that carnivores are still not desperate enough to resort to eating tofu or that vegans are turning to the real deal during the crisis.

Even the avid health enthusiasts who have been exchanging cauliflower for cakes and dough in their pies and pizzas for some time now, it seems that carbohydrates are now more critical than a summer body.

Another Trader Joe’s shopper posted a photo on Twitter of carrot coils and cauliflower that were filled to the max.

“Nobody wants carrot coils and cauliflower crust in a pandemic,” they wrote.

And buyers also don’t want to take anything but their favorite brands.

One person tweeted a photo of the mayonnaise aisle that was empty from Duke’s but full of Hellmans.

“Even in times of crisis, the North Carolins refuse to eat anything other than Duke’s!” They said.

It was a similar story last week in New York, where New Yorkers flocking to Trader Joe’s in Queens were briefly unimpressed with lettuce, the packages of which remained on refrigerator shelves, once stuffed with all kinds of greenery.

This is because the prices of popular items are skyrocketing, as panic purchases are causing retailers to struggle with supply shortages.

In fact, several major grocers have resorted to setting limits on the number of certain products customers can buy, fearing there won’t be enough to go around.

Household staples, such as eggs, bread, milk and toilet roll, are becoming more expensive in stores during the crisis.

Egg sales rose 44 percent in the second week of March compared to the same time last year, according to data from Nielsen.

When demand exceeds supply, costs in the supply chain rise.

This is putting downward pressure on retailers who cannot get the stock of eggs they need fast enough to keep their shelves stocked and thus are forced to pay higher prices.

Shoppers are not willing to take anything other than their favorite brands, even with one person tweeting a photo of Duke's mayonnaise pad empty but full of Hellmans: 'Even in times of crisis, North Carolinians refuse anything other than Duke's to eat!' they said

Shoppers brace themselves for higher prices, with egg prices rising 14 percent at Morton Williams in New York as the retailer pays double for eggs from its suppliers.

Eggs are not the only food where prices have gone up, with milk, ground beef and ice cream prices also higher.

The price of milk has risen about 30 percent from this time last year, reaching an average of $ 3.72 per gallon, according to a report by the United States Department of Agriculture Friday.

The cost of ice cream also rose 5.5 percent to $ 3.08 per gallon, and the beef chuck rose 10.4 percent to $ 3.51 per pound.

Iowa supermarket chain Fareway has to deal with limited supplies of – and higher prices from – suppliers of – eggs, milk, bread and minced meat.

Perhaps shoppers should try the chocolate hummus.
