Corn Syrup is Disappearing

Corn syrup is a hard item to find these days.

And no, corn syrup is not high fructose corn syrup. They are not the same thing. 

Corn syrup is used to make homemade candy.

Oddly enough, corn syrup is disappearing from store shelves, and it’s out of stock indefinitely online. 

My sister is an amazing cook and she was going to make some caramel…only to find that it’s damn near impossible to find it.  It’s off the shelves at Vons, Target, Wal-Mart, Costco, and Smart and Final. She finally found some in the clearance section at Wal-Mart.

So what’s the deal? Where is the corn syrup? Has it been confused with high fructose corn syrup, and therefore banned from stores?

I don’t even use the stuff…I just find it strange that it’s gone and no one seems to knoe why.
