    It seems the grocery stores are out of canned pumpkin again! Panic! My dogs get a heaping tablespoon at dinner. I found some on amazon, $30.00 for 6 cans! Nope, not doing that! Little did I know that Petco has canned pumpkin, 12 cans for $20.00! I bought it, not a bad price even with shipping. It's the same thing as the canned pumpkin I buy in the store. So I guess you can use the pumpkin for pets in your baking. I wonder how many people without pets know this, maybe I'll put a sign up "Buy at Petco" at the grocery store empty pumpkin shelf. What do you think?

    I’ve had trouble finding it too for a few weeks. I bought 6 cans on eBay! I read that there is no shortage, they’re just late getting this year’s crop into stores. Since this isn’t the first time it’s happened, I stock up when I see it every year but I’m running low. My dogs get it every day too. Great info about Petco! Thanks, Karen!

    Had this problem a few years ago. I was shocked there was no pumpkin in the store! So the next fall I bought like a zillion cans when it was on sale for like $.79. Canned food lasts a loooong time.

    I had the exact same problem for two months now! Bought on Amazon for an inflated price. Three of my local grocery stores have been out of stock! Finally found it at a local Meijer store! Got 24 cans!!! Used the pickup service.

    Great tip Karen! No shortage here, I bought 3 cans a week ago because they were on sale for 2.50... they're never that cheap here!

    Guys, really?:ROFLMAO: I have to laugh. A very modern dilemna, can't believe you buy it over the internet!

    In Australia we don't have such a thing as canned pumpkin - we actually have to cook it ourselves!
