Candy canes are joining the Christmas shortage list thanks to a run on peppermint

There is a shortage of candy cane just days before Christmas.

The supply chain crisis and a shortage of raw material have hit candy canes.

We sold out of our candy cane in less than a day. Mitchell Cohen, the owner of Economy Candy, told the New York Post that they have no stock. There have been shortages of raw material and ingredient.

The store ran out of candy canes for the first time in 84 years. Cohen said that since candy canes were invented, they have had candy canes.

The University of Nebraska's Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources says that the US is the top producer of the oil.

According to the US Department of Agriculture, production has fallen over the last decade. Production was down in 2020. Crop production has been hit by a number of factors, including a persistent fungal disease.

The supply chain is in a crisis this year as holiday demand outstrips supply.

Patrick Penfield, professor of supply chain practice at Syracuse University's Whitman School of Management, told USA Today that cream cheese, peppermint, and imported foods are examples of items that won't be seen when you walk through a lot of stores.
Park Avenue Coffee in Missouri is a speciality coffee maker that uses the ingredient in their food preparation.

In November, we order peppermint. Dale Schotte told KSDK that they always order peppermint in November and it arrives in the first week of December. "Not this year."

The supply chain crisis could cause a shortage of peppermint.

Cohen told The Post that they can't do a gingerbread house without a candy cane tree.
