Skipping past the property damage, long-term road closures, and overall life routine disruptions, we have apparently missed the biggest crisis of the recent Atlanta floods until now: Frozen Waffle Shortage
Kellogg Company said that due to “a confluence of events” — including flooding at its Bucknell Drive manufacturing facility — Eggo brand frozen waffles will be in short supply for some time to come.
Grocery store inventories, the company said, are expected to remain limited through the first half of 2010.
The Atlanta plant, south of I-20 and west of I-285 near Thornton Road, opened in 1969 when it was owned by Fearn International. Kellogg temporarily halted production in September due to flooding driven by heavy rains, the company said.
And what does this have to do with Georgia Politics? Don Balfour would like to take this opportunity to remind you that Waffle House is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. And his waffles can be ordered with pecans, chocolate chips, blueberries, or strawberries for just a few cents extra.
