Leggo My Eggo

There's no waffling this one, shoppers are getting the cold shoulder from the frozen food aisle finding a small variety of Eggo's, or none at all.

The shortage of a popular breakfast fare is due, in part, to metro Atlanta's record flooding. Flooding from the Chattahoochee river temporarily stopped production at the Kellogg plant in southwest Atlanta, one of the plants where Eggo's are made.

Combine that with non-flooding related equipment problems at the largest Eggo waffle bakery in Tennessee, and you've cooked up a nationwide shortage.

In a statement, Kellogg vows the company is working around the clock to stock your grocery store shelves at normal levels, but admits the shortage could last well into next year. In the meantime, Kellogg's representative says the company is allocating the waffles it does have "based on historical percentage of business."
