Bad Food News, Good Food News: Limes 'n Sriracha Edition

Posted by on Tue, Apr 8, 2014 at 4:25 PM

The Bad News: Let's all get through this lime shortage together.

According to the Associated Press, there’s a lime shortage in the Mexican state of Michoacan after growers cut down their supply due to unrest caused by drug cartels, as well as flooding from heavy rain. Both are no good for lime lovers, and of course, even worse for the people living there.

Add in the drought in California and the price of limes is spiking, leading some airlines to drop limes from their beverage services — for now. The average price of a lime is about $0.56 as of last week, up from $0.31 during the same period a year ago.

The Good News: On May 22nd, the Mariners will be hosting a "Salute to Sriracha" at Safeco Field. $25 gets you a package including:

• Main Level Seat
• Mariners Sriracha T-shirt
• One Sriracha menu item:
Sriracha Cream Cheese Hot Dog
Sriracha Garlic Fries
or Sriracha Milkshake

The Mariners will be playing the Houston Astros that day. (Also: Sriracha milkshakes are a thing? I'm pretty daring when it comes to food, but that doesn't sound appealing at all. As in, at all.)

Buy limes, squeeze the juice into ice trays, and save for this summers Margaritas!

The Mariners don't suck this week - which is news in itself! Hopefully they won't suck on May 22nd!
