Holy Guacamole! Crisis Alert! Chipotle Might Have To Stop Serving Guac And It's All Mother Nature's Fault!

chipotle might stop guacamole due to weather ingredients

Say it ain't so, Chipotle! SAY IT AIN'T SO!!!!

The popular Mexican food chain dropped a devastating bombshell on food lovers everywhere when they released a statement saying climate changes could start to affect the prices and availability of some of their ingredients!

So what does this mean exactly?? It means the changes in weather could eventually prevent you from getting guacamole in your burrito!!

In their annual report, Chipotle writes:

"Increasing weather volatility or other long-term changes in global weather patterns, including any changes associated with global climate change, could have a significant impact on the price or availability of some of our ingredients. Any increase in the prices of the ingredients most critical to our menu, such as chicken, beef, cheese, avocados, beans, rice, tomatoes and pork, would adversely affect our operating results. Alternatively, in the event of cost increases with respect to one or more of our raw ingredients, we may choose to temporarily suspend serving menu items, such as guacamole or one or more of our salsas, rather than paying the increased cost for the ingredients. Any such changes to our available menu may negatively impact our restaurant traffic and comparable restaurant sales, and could also have an adverse impact on our brand."

Now for those of you who are asking, "How many avocados to they really need?", Chipotle uses 97,000 pounds of avocado per day, which comes out to a whopping 35.4 million pounds every year!! That's a lot of guac!

Weather plays a HUGE factor in the equation as scientist predict avocado production in California alone can drop by 40% over the next 32 years due to hotter temperatures and drier conditions.

Anyone who has known the delicious bliss that is Chipotle guacamole knows this has the potential to be one of the biggest disasters in fast food history!

Please, take the McRib. But don't take away our guacamole!!!

    In the Chicago area they already charge $3 for about 2 tablespoons of guacamole. I can buy a WHOLE avocado for less than that and with barely $2 more I can make a decent amount of guacamole. Considering they buy in such HUGE bulk, they are already WAY over-charging for their scant amount of guacamole they give you for $3. Heck, for $5 I can go next door to Jewel and buy a WHOLE name brand container of it!

    OH MY GOD! thats proof there is a god. Its all my fault. As a kid i think I may have prayed that all the world's Guacamole sink into a hole never again to torture my gag reflex. God sure takes him time about things but… thanks? Sorry about the collateral damage though. I didnt know the world didnt revolve around me as a kid.

    Re: Sporky dorky work – No guilt, sporky. Warm states that have water have just been given a big opportunity. I get avacados from Mexico, but it might also be dry in places there.
