Buckle up potato lovers, you may soon be seeing less of the versatile vegetable. A french fry shortage in Canada could happen and the weather is partly to blame. This might be a good time to get your french fry fix just in case the shortage happens.\nPotatoes really do the most and when we're talking about just french fries, there are so many ways you can have them. There's steak fries, shoestring, curly, waffle, crinkle cut, wedges, and more. If this shortage actually comes to pass, it will be a terrible day for many.\nPotato producers in North America are putting the blame on cold and wet fall weather and increased demand for and the tight supply of the root vegetable.\n"Processors are desperately trying to find products in order to offer us the chips and french fries we all love, but apparently harvest has been tough, snow came in early and potatoes are a vulnerable crop," said Sylvain Charlebois, director of the Agri-Foods Analytics Lab at Dalhousie University, to CTV News.\nWhile all potatoes are at risk of being in short supply, fries have a particularly higher risk because this year's crop yield has brought in the vegetable's smaller varieties but companies like to use bigger ones, according to Bloomberg News.\nView this post on Instagram Who is having #FunWithFries 🍟: @lambweston4chefs ・・・ Straight-cut fries will always be a menu classic, but your customers also crave fry variety! In fact, appetite for specialty fries—like Lamb Weston® Twister Fries®—has increased 7% since last year.* Visit the link in bio to start exploring all the #potatopossibilities for your menu. 🍟 *AmpliFRY July 2019 A post shared by Fun With French Fries 🍟 (@funwithfries) on Nov 22, 2019 at 3:20am PST\nSome potato growers in Canada aren't facing their worst year on record but it's still not a great situation across the country.\nIn Manitoba, it's estimated that more than 12,000 acres of the stem tubers weren't harvested this fall. This was due to heavy rain and early snowfall in October that was topped off with frost, ending this year's season.\nThat's actually more than double the amount left in the ground at the end of the 2018 season.\nAccording to Bloomberg News, an estimated 6.5% of Alberta's potatoes are frost damaged.\nOn the east coast, more than 1,000 acres weren't harvested this year mainly in western P.E.I. after a delay in starting the growing season, a dry summer, and lots of precipitation from Hurricane Dorian.\nView this post on Instagram Who is having #FunWithFries 🍟: @hazelofthemooncakes ・・・ Potatoes are arguably the best vegetable. There are so many ways to enjoy the spud; fried, baked, scalloped, mashed and the list goes on! But French fries 🍟 speak to everyone’s potato language lol. I mean, who can say no when they’re covered in Parmesan and truffle?! 📍 @thecoopnyc 🍴 Truffle French Fries A post shared by Fun With French Fries 🍟 (@funwithfries) on Nov 24, 2019 at 8:01pm PST\nAt this same time in 2018, Canada was facing a similar situation. In what farmers called unprecedented, bad weather led to one of the worst harvests in Canadian history.\nLast year, P.E.I. was hardest hit with 6,800 acres abandoned but this year it looks like Manitoba is facing the worst of it.\nPrince Edward Island is Canada's largest potato grower followed by Manitoba and Alberta.\nTighter french fry supplies could mean that you'd have to pay a little bit more for those spuds or you could be served a smaller portion for the same price as a regular one.\nIf you love fries, you might want to enjoy them while they last.\nThere are stories everywhere.
