Put them on eBay! I don’t eat ketchup anymore so a shortage is ok with me. You can also make your own.

Not sure, but I think you can be kicked out of the Villages for a Post like that...... I think you probably meant they "only" give you 30 packets. In the future please remember the Villages motto - ANY THING FREE TICKLES ME!

It's only a temporary situation and the inventory will eventually catchup.

No shortage in Canada. Maybe worth the 3 day $2000 hotel quarantine then 14 day home quarantine?
