    Default anchovies

    Has there been some recall or shortage of canned anchovies? The space for
    anchovies at my local grocery store has been empty for the last week.

    You will see anchovies on your pizza at the Toronto Exhibition this
    year. The Canadian National Exhibition as it's formally known. Eat
    em up baby!

    Maybe they're not a big seller.

    Or maybe they are and they just got bought. So they didn't get recalled or
    there isn't a shortage, it is just my Kroger. I guess I will have to
    complain to the manager. Well I can do that. We have an Hispanic grocery
    close by too and I noticed that they never have anchovies, so I guess they
    are not popular in Tex-Mex cooking.

    Well-run retail stores will know what items should be "never out", so if
    something is a huge seller they will tend to always have it in stock.

    If you google 'anchovy shortage", there has been some recent buzz about
    depleted fishing stocks.

    There have been sporadic shortages of tinned anchovies at retail
    for the past couple years.

    Hispanic stores (of any size) standardly carry tinned anchovies.

    The name of the store is Foodaramma. They have produce that you don't see
    very often. I don't know what most of it is. They also have odd meats, some
    you don't want to look at.

    15 days sure wouldn't effect the stock of the places I shop.

    I love them just about anywhere. Certainly a pizza will do.

    Not how it works, Lou. Stores can have enough "white stuff", whatever
    that is (milk and toilet paper, I know) to last a long time, but once
    the storm warnings come out, the shelves are bare. After the storm is
    passed, no sense in the store stocking back up on toilet paper, because
    people have enough to last for a year.

    I suspect a few ding dongs saw that anchovy news, and bought out every
    tin they could find, God knows why.

    The first time I ordered a pizza, I wanted everything on it.
    "Everything?", they said. Yep, everything. The pizza came with
    everything, including anchovies and jalapenos. In Texas. they put
    jalapenos in everything, including kolaches and Chinese food. lol If I
    wanted to share with friends, I learned to cut the anchovies.

    Definitely a regional thing. There's no way even a newbie server
    would take an order for "everything" here. Some places have 20-25
    topping choices at $1.50-$2.00 per item for a large pizza. That
    would be a pretty expensive pizza and jalapenos are never on the menu.

    I'm not going to go to shopping now to see but I'm sure my main store
    has anchovies. You'd spend 1000's to buy them out. Between brand,
    size and packaging choices there's probably 50 options. I cracked up
    when I looked at the 2 pound tin. There's also these really cool jars
    about quart size and the little things are packed in there in perfect
    order. It's so pretty I'd be afraid to open it. I'll look later this
    week but I really doubt a 15 day ban will have much effect the type
    store I shop at.

    We do have a jalapeno chicken dish, but I've seen that in CA as
    well. All chiles used in other dishes are standard Asian chiles.
    And jalapeno is usually a pizza option, often free.

    IMO, Jalapeno isn't so much a Texas thing as it is a Mexican
    thing. And where you have a lot of Mexican food, you have a lot
    of non-Mexicans who also like spicy food.

    This was many years ago, when I was about 14-15 yrs old. The pizzeria,
    in this small Texas town, had pepperoni, sausage, Canadian bacon,
    mushrooms, onions, peppers, olives, anchovies and sliced jalapeno. That
    was it. That is what you got when you ordered the pizza with
    everything. They did not have toppings like cheddar cheese, pineapples,
    leeks, hamburger, chicken, bacon, spinach, salami, feta cheese, roasted
    red peppers, etc.

    Interesting pizzas are nice, but I always go back to liking the same
    pizza, the one I had when I was a kid.
