“The Great Japan Potato-Chip Crisis: Panic Buying, $12 Bags”

“Demand for potato chips has surged in Japan this week, with products on offer for 6 times their retail price online after Japanese snack company Calbee Inc. halted the sale of some of its most popular chip brands…

The crunch came after Calbee warned on Monday that it will temporarily halt the sale of 15 types of potato chips due to a bad crop in Hokkaido, a key potato-producing region.”

See that bold. If it’s the potato crop itself then there’s possibly more than just potato chips affected.
