We Have Really Good News About In-N-Out Burger’s Chile Shortage

We were pretty bummed to report that In-N-Out Burger was experiencing a yellow chile shortage this summer. Well, In-N-Out lovers may soon be able to drench their Animal Style meal in yellow chile juice once again.

It appears whole yellow chilies are making their way back into stores — as early as this week — according to an In-N-Out issued memo sent out to “All Stores” dated July 29. The memo’s first sentence could confirm the end to California’s second largest drought, “Next week, whole chilies will be back in stock at the warehouse.” Although it is partially cut off, the memo continues: “Upon delivery, immediately resume serving chilies normally …


Before I found the memo on Twitter Monday night, I visited my local In-N-Out to order my standard No. 1 and asked if they had chilies.

To my amazement, the gal at the drive-thru wasn’t completely annoyed and replied, “Not yet, we’re hoping by Wednesday.”

After hearing the good news, I searched Twitter for “In n out chilies” and instantly found a memo, with the subject line, “Resupply of Whole Chilies.”

It’s been a bland summer without the mouth-watering drops of delicious yellow chilies on my Double-Double.

Hopefully, we’ll never have to experience another shortage, but it’s safe to say no one will ever take the whole yellow chile for granted, again.

Welcome back, chilies. You’ve been missed.


Memo Mug

Writing phone numbers and notes on your hand might have been okay when you were in school, but now that you’re a grown up with a real job, it’s not very professional to go around with pen scribbles on your skin.  However, the coffee mug is a staple of office culture, and you surely won’t seem out of place with one of these.  With its built-in pocket to hold the pen, you’ll always be able to write down that idea you don’t want to forget.  Write a note to yourself that you would like to be reminded of every time you take a sip.  Just try not to doodle caricatures of your boss on it during that important meeting.
