Ally Ali’s Need to Know, July 29th 2022:
Hershey Halloween Candy Shortage: The Hershey Company has announced that they will not be able to meet Halloween demand this year . . . because of the war in Ukraine.
They say it has to do with “disruptions along its supply chain, including higher dairy prices and scarce ingredients.” And sourcing stuff from other suppliers is expensive and time-consuming.
It seems like there’s time to find a work-around, but they’ve already started Halloween production, and their projections show they’ll come up short.
Golden Girls NYC Pop-Up Restaurant: NYC will feature a brand new restaurant dedicated to Golden Girls!
Each ticket includes a 90-minute reservation as well as your choice of a Golden Main + Slice of Cheesecake (of course!). There will be additional sides, desserts, beverages, and even exclusive The Golden Girls Kitchen merchandise to add on arrival.— https://bucketlisters.com/event/golden-girls-kitchen-nyc

Sprite Changes Up It’s Look: The Coca-Cola Company has announced that, beginning next week, they’re changing Sprite’s packaging to CLEAR plastic bottles . . . because the green bottles, ironically, aren’t GREEN enough.
The green bottles are recyclable, but because of the additives in the plastic to change the color, it has to be separated from other plastic to be repurposed . . . and that creates a lot of headaches and unnecessary waste.
The green bottles will also be dropped from other Coca-Cola products, including Mello Yello . . . Fresca . . . and Seagram’s Ginger Ale.
Sprite will continue to have a bright green label and cap, but the look will take some getting used to . . . because the clear bottle makes it look like Sprite Zero Sugar, and other variations.
