Butter shortage!

Norway is out of butter. I should have asked my sister to bring some. Friends say that there’s a new low-carb high-fat diet kick in the region that involves eating a lot of butter. The factories are out, the stores are out. The dairies will be gearing up for butter production again, but we won’t have any for Thanksgiving.

  1. According to the web, it is the wet autumn we have had that is the reason for the butter shortage, The grass hass been crap, so the cows has been producing less fat, which lead to less cream/butter production. Then the papers got wind of it and called it a crisis, and everyone went to the stores and hamstred butter. So now the shops are empty.
    Wait till january, and a lot of people will be throwing butter in the bin :)
