I break my proverbial teeth reading this stuff but still thoroughly enjoy it. Yiddish is such a rich language!

What’s a מאנגל? A shortage?
Yes

@israshot Can you confirm this story or at least if there will be more supply?

I think we should combine the “food shortage” and “how much weight everyone is gaining” threads.

You ask me as what?
The first part is coherent with what I've heard from a few store's managers. Some told me that they are waiting for a cheese delivery tomorrow.

No, in Hebrew a מנגל,  in Yiddish it’s a מאנגאל. Never a מאנגל.

I don't know if its true or not but I want to get the credit in case it is that's why I posted, just like trump

someone (that I trust) told me that a big salesman told him that distributors still have stock for another month, but after that we gotta pray for the best
reasoning: companies saw disruption in manufacturing/processing food due to covid
once it all gets back to normal (which could be its there already) they will put the kosher runs at the bottom of their list and will focus 1st on the general (population) product line

Are you suggested that there’s correlation between stockpiling and weight gain? Interesting, glad to test negative on both counts.

Last year this time there was also a shoratge
You would think that after counting the days each year they would be prepared.

Very interesting because it's a relatively new company and he stormed the market.
