Kerrygold Butter Shortage

maypo Feb 9, 2014 11:48 AM

Seems to be a shortage of the lightly salted Kerrrygold butter here in the US (gold label). Whole Foods and Giant totally out of the stuff. Any ideas or recent spottings?

    I saw it in Trader Joe's in Falls Church over the weekend.

      I got some in Sterling Costco last week. But it's interesting that you say there is a shortage because there was hardly any butter left, and I took the next to last one. I figured it just needed to be stocked or they were waiting for a shipment. They had plenty of the same brand of cheese.

        I'm pretty sure the Giants on Democracy and Tuckerman in Bethesda have it.

          I'm not sure about DC but here in Michigan we actually can find it at Trader Joe's. And it's more affordable there than the other places.

          I really hope there isn't a shortage. My husband is obsessed with that butter.

                  I noticed Kerry Gold in the Vienna Giant, yesterday. I almost bought some.

                          Last time I wanted some (last week) I didn't notice any problems here in NY. Maybe a local supplier has issues, monetary or otherwise?
