Former expat, living in Texas after 10 1/2 years in Norway. Trying to decide the next steps. No matter what, the journey never stops. I will always be a traveler.
Richest country on earth and can't keep butter on the shelves. And then they try to tell you they can't get butter from outside the country to fill the supply chain hole...rubbish. The foreign grocers in Grønland could have truckloads of it here tomorrow if the government would let them. Funny thing is, I don't even think it's a contrived shortage to raise prices...I see no indication of a price rise, just empty shelves. Grrr indeed.
I heard about this! How terrible for the holidays! On another blog I heard butter referred to as the "olive oil of the North".
For the life of me I can't understand what the problem is. I mean, none of the cows have buggered off, have they? It's not like the bees that keep disappearing. Got cows. Got milk. Make butter. Seems rather simple to me. But I'm just a city girl, so what do I know?Also, I've seen no evidence of shortages in Bergen. I bought both Meieri Smør and Brelett yesterday, and there was loads of it to be had. The only thing they don't seem to have is the smør in the tubs.Totally media invented crisis, as far as I can tell. Like the egg shortage crisis that seems to crop up every other Easter or so.
