Have you been affected by any kind of shortage lately? I know I've noticed for the past year or so the signs hanging up at various businesses saying there is a coin shortage and to please pay with the exact amount or use a card. Another shortage note stood out to me when I escaped the summer heat and stepped into a Starbucks to order my favorite refreshing iced green tea and it wasn't available due to supply issues.
According to an article by Business Insider, the coffee giant has been experiencing temporary shortages of certain flavors and teas. The supply issues are expected to last until late Summer. For now, you may have to try substituting your green tea for some other type or try their refreshers (which are delicious by the way!) Other items reportedly suffering from supply issues are:
- Green Iced Tea
- Chai Tea bags
- Hazelnut syrup
Helpful tip: Check the Starbucks app to check and see if a certain store is out of something.
