I know what you are saying with some items not available but I can't substitute my brand of instant coffee.I know I've asked this question in the past, but I want to see if anyone has shifted a bit since the pandemic.
One thing I'm learning, I can't be picky when they have to substitute items at the grocery store these days! It's take it or do without!
One of best friend's, a serious coffee drinker, always used to say, "The only bad coffee is no coffee."lol
At this point I will take any coffee I can find. Has anyone noticed it's been a bit more difficult to find dark roast out there?
