Simply hoarding from what Iíve read. Not supply chain issues. Supposedly will take the yeast companies a couple months to catch up.

A lot of people who don't bake much started now. Local Walmart is still having a hard time keeping flour on the shelf

Norman's just came out weeks ago with whipped cream cheese and they are the only ones to have in stock. Grab them before they're gone.

https://boropark24.com/news/now-this-cream-cheese-shortage-slams-jewish-community-week-before-shavuos

Iím skeptical about these shortages and while itís true to an extent I feel like theyíre being hyped Still feel like saying I kinda called it:

especially with Shavuous coming a dairy shortage (in the CY market) wonít be fun.

pesach I had no cream cheese,
I was in bingo beginning last week they where fully stocked with JJ, givat and Normans, I bought some, my wife needed more and borrowed from my neighbor a givat Cream cheese I went back to bingo the next day the JJ and givat were wiped they only had Normans, I wanted to return what I borrowed I went to NPGS they only had Normans, so I bought the Normans and my kids ate it up before I had a chance to return it, now I hope its only hype and I would be able to pay back at-least Normans
