Trying to find the exact date of availability, I went to the most reliable source I could think of: the guy who does the ordering for my local 7-Eleven. He said that today is the beginning distribution date. In reality, it will be a week or so before we actually see them on store shelves. It's just as well, because I have a dentist appointment tomorrow. I'm still going to be checking back on a regular basis.
Food has a strong power over us. I hardly ever buy Ding Dongs, but the thought of never having them again was devastating. Imagine life without Mac 'n' Cheese, pizza, or hot dogs. I don't go to McDonald's very often, but it would be shocking if it disappeared. Some things are just too firmly ingrained in our culture and experiences to go away, especially when food is involved.
