A horrible crisis faces America!!  Could it be the rampant flu? Could it be not getting our holiday packages on time?  More robo-calls?

No!  We may have a French Fry shortage on our hands!!

This year has been rough for potato crops thanks to the cold and wet weather.

Retailers rely on long potatoes to make french fries, but there’s not enough of those to go around.

We may need to turn to foreign producers to feed our fry need!  Finally, authentic FRENCH FRIES.

This all could mean higher prices for potatoes at the grocery store and an influx of people doing bad French accents when ordering in the fast food line.

Thank you ABC7 Chicago for creating a new anxiety for me!
