Good day. We wanted to make sure everyone was up-to-date on what is happening with Sin-able Sweets, and any challenges we are facing.
I am not sure how many people have been into the restaurant supply stores, places like ChefStore (used to be Cash and Carry/SmartFoodService). They had a supplier that had a COVID outbreak, and it almost completely emptied their meats, produce and eggs sections. Other of their suppliers are having issues also, paper products, coffee and peanuts! Meat and produce do not affect the bakery, but when they are not able to get butter, eggs and éclair boxes (that hold 2 eclairs), I start looking for alternatives. I have been able to continue to find small quantities of many things to make sure we can continue to make your favorite items, from cakes to cookies to eclairs. That being said, here comes the bad news.
Our supplier for fruit notified us yesterday that they are out of marionberries for the foreseeable future, and they do not know when they are getting them back! The reason for this, and most of this may not be a surprise to you. First, with so many people staying home last year, they went through a lot of their backstock of items. Then, the extreme heat we had in late June, has caused many of the berries (marionberry, raspberries, blackberries and Oregon Berry Mix) to die on the vines. That means when it comes to the most popular items with marionberries, the parfaits and muffins, will be out of stock when we run out of what we have. We have removed the ability to order them online right now, until we know exactly how long what we have left in stock will last us.
Please know, we will continue to look for new sources of marionberries, and any other items that are out of stock, and we will keep you informed of what the outlook looks like for items and getting them back in. For keeping everyone in the loop of items we are having issues with and when things are back in stock, we will update this post by changing the date and having the update near the top of the post.
