Skip to comments.Climate Change Could Mean No Guac For You — At Least At Chipotle
Posted on 03/04/2014 2:39:54 PM PST by rightwingintelligentsia
Bad news for burrito lovers: Chipotle warned in its latest annual report that climate change might lead it to leave guacamole out of its burritos and bowls.
The chain blames the possible change on higher prices. 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.
The company acknowledged such a move would be a massive disappointment to some of its customers. But, as ThinkProgress points out, considering the company uses about 97,000 pounds of avocados each day, it might not be able to stomach a price increase that could be brought on by global warming.

Thanks for posting. I can add another left wing restaurant to my list to avoid.
The stupid is strong in this one.
If this is true it is good news! I like heat but dislike guac! More CO2 please.
Canada could start growing our tomatoes and avocados.
I thought avocados liked warm weather.
LOL. Avocados need warm weather. If MMGW was real, it would bring the price down. I notice nobody at Chipolte claimed price increases were do to global warming. Apparently that little piece of spin came from ThinkProgress, whoever they may be.
Hell, there might be global warming or for that matter global cooling. I like to call it global climate.
As long as the bastards don’t make up crap to blame ME for it, I could care less. I hate Guac anyway.
Where do they get their Avacados from? California? If so, no global warming involved, just man-made drought choking off the farmers.
Saw avocados on sale at Walmart today. They were half the price of a couple weeks ago.
While not particularly popular, the avocado tree can be grown domestically and used as a (decorative) houseplant. The pit germinates in normal soil conditions or partially submerged in a container of water. In the latter method, the pit sprouts in four to six weeks, at which time it is planted in fertile soil such as potting soil. The plant normally grows large enough to be prunable; however, it does not bear fruit unless it has ample sunlight. Home gardeners can graft a branch from a fruit-bearing plant to speed maturity, which typically takes four to six years to bear fruit. To obtain fresh avocado produce, however, more than one tree must be cultivated for crosspollination.
Hmm.... Meaning you could grow these in green houses in salt mines as they are warm and provided with enough artificial light
I hate guac too and that wasn’t the part which pissed me off. It was glow-bull warming BS.
The Gansu mole
The Eastern mole
The Long-tailed mole
The Shrew mole
The Guaca mole
I triple dog dare Al Gore to come to Waco Texas and spew his tripe.
It has been written.
Do it Al, or your chicken.
No, see, global warming is to blame for our polar surges. It’s also to blame for our higher temps too. Sometimes you can’t tell because temps are within the normal range, but bet money it’s because of global warming. Everything is because of global warming.
Global warming is the left’s new god. And it’s a male god because it’s hurting earth mother gaia. maybe even raping gaia.
The one and only reason I go there...
Moe's is as good, but their Guac isn't the same...
I did like their food and they just put one in close enough for me to visit once in awhile.
Guess I’ll just have to go back to making my own guac (Which really is better, but sometimes a woman needs a night out of the kitchen!)
KK <— who is now off to make broiled spicy pork with pineapple, sweet red pepper rice, and a wilted escarole and apple salad for dinner.
yep, Chiplote ought to say “we helped save the snail darter at the cost of killing the avocado.”
Considering most come from Mexico or CA I don’t get it.
Their guacamole is really good. What I always notice at Chipotles is that every employee is Hispanic.
“Thanks for posting. I can add another left wing “cult” restaurant to my list to avoid.”
-——. What I always notice at Chipotles is that every employee is Hispanic.-——
The one I go too has a mix of people but Hispanics are the majority of employees
Which is fine by me....I don’t care what color you are as long as you are here in this country legally...
“I thought avocados liked warm weather.”
We love avocados, in fact some of our Yankee relatives, say we are addicted to them.
Last year, we thought about planting some trees on about a half acre.
We were told by the plant nursery, that the avocados couldn’t tolerate hard freezes. Also, the deer love them.
Good advice as we went into a couple of weeks of low temps in the teens at night. Also, our local deer herd has doubled in size.
Every business claims green BS in connection with their products and wrappers.
I gather that avocado prices have not gone up due to GW, so they are just playing games with their customers. If prices do go up for any reason they will raise their prices.
Of course taxes and Obamacare are causing real price increases but if they say that leftist brown shirts will put them out of business.
I feel the same way, but could imagine the liberal outrage if the employees were all white.
This is "climate change", not warming. So the cold blasts we are having may affect the avocado market.
I don’t know if this adds anything to the conversation.
Along I-15 from Escondido to Temecula in soCal they call the freeway, the Avocado Hwy.
A few years ago 20,000 tress were burned in a wildfire. I don’t think they missed much of a beat getting product to market.
However, the water rates were increased significantly. I see a lot of groves and properties with trees on the market for sale.
I recently, sold a property with about 75 tress. Th buyers are having the trees removed.
I think Mexico is the other source.
I notice I still get avocado on dishes in Mexican restaurants and dip offered as well. Didn’t notice price in creases passed along.
I haven’t seen the avocado market affected in restaurants by me in Texas. YEARS ago (maybe a decade?) there was a tomato “shortage” that resulted in salso and pico only being offered on demand.
I lived in Sacramento near the Campbells tomato soup place on Franklin near Hwy 99, since closed down. You could see tomatoes along the freeway when the trucks were rolling.
I should have sent you some!
