It's like the black market for 3.5 gallon toilets and the soon-to-be smuggling of big screen televisions into California.

Can you see people trying to get inside info from a Walmart employee? "Hey, I heard from Lennie in shipping. We're getting a shipment of Eggo's in tomorrow morning. I'll pull four boxes off the pallet and hold them for you. Meet me by the deli counter at 10am."

I bought Eggos for the first time a couple of weeks ago, when my cousins were visiting from out of town and I heard their daughter likes them. I had no idea there is/was a shortage. I'll have to look again next time I shop, just for the heck of it.

I have most of the box left. The kid never ate 'em. I tried one, and the rest remain. They're the whole grain kind.

They never really did anything for me, sorry, I'm just as happy with a biscuit and some honey. My favorite now, is the strussel french toast at Cracker Barrel.

What's really funny is the bid on ebay is now at $9.50 (reserve not met)! This is the same box of blueberry ones I had in my freezer. I guess I ate nearly $5 worth of waffles yesterday. Dang! I could of almost went to Denny's.

I can report that both Wal-Mart and Bi-Lo in N. Myrtle Beach, SC are fully stocked with Eggos in all varieties. There are no limits posted for purchase. However, Bi-Lo did have a note posted on the freezer case to expect shortages.

Wal-Mart did run out of .40/lb. frozen turkeys though (I didn't like the brand anyway). So I headed to Bi-Lo for the .49/lb turkeys (Honeysuckle brand) which required a $25 additional purchase. I was joking with meat manager about it and he told them to let me have the turkey w/o the $25 additional purchase. I was glad as I had already bought my other fixin's.

I get home and see this on the news. I hope I wasn't the straw that caused it. Sorry for the waffling.

Dwayne,

You could easily be an eBay millionaire. Just find a commercial freezer someplace, buy up all those Eggos in North Myrtle Beach, and you are on your way to being a big player in the Eggo market. When they get up to $20 a box you'll be rolling in money and booking category 12 suites.

Dave, I'm perfectly happy booking insides and OV's. I like being with common folk as myself.

Wow, I didn't know Bi-Lo was in trouble. They aren't that much less than other stores. Just have to watch the sales.

Dwayne, I think Dave has a great idea. Do you have a chest freezer?

penny I always thought that Dwayne might have cold hands but he definitely has a warm heart - not a chest freezer!!!

Happy Thanksgiving,
