Pumpkin pie lovers be warned: You may not find your favorite can of pie filling at the supermarket.

There's a national shortage of canned pumpkin and pie filling, a result of poor weather that reduced last year's crop.

It's the Great Pumpkin-Pie-Filling Shortage -- latimes.com

Good thing I make my own pie filling from the pumpkins in my garden.

I haven't been able to find it for a few months at either Kroger or Publix. I like to add a spoonful to my dogs food. Trader Joe's still has organic pumpkin on their shelves.

Thanks for the heads up. I'm buying two extra cans tomorrow. I also saw that McDonald's is selling pumpkin pies. Are they any good?

I have it on my list as I only have one can left, and made pumpkin bars with cream cheese frosting today.... I love pumpkin anything... I am assuming with the pumpkin shortage this year in places it will get worse...thinks self...is time to grow pumpkins...

Pumpkin pie. From September until January. And even then you have to have it a few times in spring and summer.
I'm a fan of a good deep dish pumpkin custard, with a bold spicy taste( nutmeg), not too sweet, balanced by creaminess. A little whip cream to top it off( not mandatory but it doesn't hurt it) and a hot cup of coffee.
At Christmas time I'll want it but I also enjoy warm mince pie( meatless) with a little vanilla ice cream. And a good fruit cake.
We're lucky in having Tastykake who makes snack size pumpkin pies so I can get my fix for a while any time I want.

Default Afraid so...

I've been hearing this for several months now. I love to bake for family & friends. The dogs love it in their food, too.

No shortage of pumpkins on Long Island. I cannot believe how full the pumpkin farms out here are...HUGE piles of them and the fields are still loaded after a crowded holiday weekend full of city folk coming out to the country!
