A business in Texas is selling nuts you’d typically purchase on a plane or in a baseball game — both of which can be risky (or even inaccessible ) choices for the present calendar year.
That’s appropriate. The GNS GreatNuts mill shop in Texas roasts countless nuts each year, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
But they’ve had less buyers since airlines aren’t giving out them and baseball matches — a standard spot at which you’d purchase some beers (and Craacckkkerrr Jackssss) — aren’t permitting lovers.
“I have 50,000 pounds of nuts American Airlines and United didn’t want!” Kim Peacock of GNS Foods and GreatNuts.com advised The Star-Telegram. “We’re feeling sad. We’re sitting on a lot of nuts.”
“We’ve been asking American Airlines to help us get rid of these,” she explained.
The shop isn’t alone. Since Fox Business reported, American farmers now have too much nuts because of global changes brought on by the coronavirus pandemic.
Farmers stay nervous because export costs are down however, the harvest yield went up due to the rising need, per Bloomberg.
“We’re nervous, especially for next year, with where prices are,” Bill Carriere, a farmer who works for the California Walnut Board and California Walnut Commission, told Bloomberg. “They could get below the cost of production.”
