If you did not know, Japan has been very well known (and proud of) it's potato crops. As they are used to producing well-known Potato Chips across the world.
Recently though, they have not been doing so well.
Because of weather disasters last year, their potato crops are so bad that major food companies have had to stop the production of 49 chip products – and have no idea when they’ll be able to fire up the factories again. People are even posting pictures online of empty chip aisles as they browse stores.
OOOOO no!! Those poor people! I really feel bad for them that they are experiencing something this drastic. We truly do take how good we have it in America for granted. Something as simple as a bag of chips for us to enjoy here is seen as a challenge in many other countries, and we should feel grateful for what we have.
