In a time of crisis, Somerville turns to Spam

Lack of spam at Somerville Market Basket

Liddle Lamzy Dive Bar reports that the Market Basket in Somerville had plenty of toilet paper, pasta, rice, bottled water, eggs, milk and bread today, but was running low on the all important, gluten-free Spam.

Thank you. (Adam, sorry, but I don't know how to create a thumbnail for the vid. It's SPAM by Monty Python.)

Target, only their limit is 5 items per person. And the signs are repeated at the checkouts as well.

I didn’t see any type of apocalyptic styles shelves. We needed TP and paper towels, and they had plenty.

Note. My wife is a nurse at an area hospital and we weren’t stockpiling, just needed basics.

It's not like bleach or toilet paper goes bad.

Toilet paper does. A small amount of moisture can turn your roll into a mass of paper over time.
Pull off a chunk to wipe I mean.

It's designed to dissolve in water.

Faster if stored improperly, slower otherwise.

Be prepared for a slew of stupid when people inadvertently make chlorine gas by mixing cleaning products.

except dry milk powder in large (20 gallon) boxes.

Where, in the name of Elsie The Cow, can one get that stuff now? Wegmans? The Chelsea Market Basket? Some restaurant bulk supply store (there used to be one near the Green Street T stop, is it still there) ?

And, yes, I know it tastes awful. But it's better than buying lots of regular milk and having it go sour.

You have to be a certain age to remember Elsie.
Heck you probably think a Hoodsie is an Ice cream treat. :)

BMS paper supply (a bit of a misnomer if you ask me) on Washington St is still there and has bulk supplies of lots of things. Haven't checked for powdered milk.

This was supposed to be in reply to JMeltzer but it didn't show up in the right place.

Wow. I remember my mom used to get it from welfare when I was a kid. She never really made it into milk. I would snack on it dry, for some reason I liked the taste. I've even purchased it as an adult to eat, but wow, it's been years since I've come across it. I'm curious to know too.
