Stop everything: Avocados are affordable again
You may now resume your normal avocado consumption habits
We can all relax, because it’s just been announced that avocados are going to be (relatively) affordable again.
The great avocado drought of 2016 is finally coming to a close, which means one less thing to be anxious about today. In fact, if you wanted to whip up some guacamole while you watch the election results roll in tonight, you could probably do so without breaking the bank.
According to Produce News, the supply of avos is finally starting to meet demand again, meaning that we can wave goodbye to $3 avocados.
An avocado grower strike last month in Mexico was meant supplies were down massively, meaning shops were doubling and sometimes tripling the prices, making our grocery bags and brunches bland af.
The work stoppage has ended, and according to Emiliano Escobedo, executive director of the Hass Avocado Board, “Avocados are flowing freely and abundantly into this country.”
And free-flowing, abundant avocados are a great thing.
At the height of the shortage, some restaurants were even taking avocado off their menus, making things like good guac a rarity.
But fear not: our national nightmare is over and brunch can resume as usual.
