Itīs not that odd. Stuff gets less popular or companies get bought by bigger ones.
They stopped producing Erbswurst when the yearly production was at about 450 tons. DeBeukelar got bought and the buyer decided that they do not need two brands of basically identic biscuits.

Products from certain brands currently are not available in the stores of some retailer chains. The owners are not happy with the pricing policy of the manufacturer. I guess that will change eventually.
Also it seems like swedes and turnips are in short supply while there is an abundance of other vegetables.

I went to three different grocery stores, including one with a whole aisle of hot sauce. I couldn't find sambal oelek anywhere. I'm having to make do with Sriracha and Crystal. How can they expect us to live like this??? No sambal oelek? O the humanity! The humanity!

You have my sympathy. Around here there is plenty of sambal oeleck (unfortunately none of the good stuff), very little of very mild sriracha and none of the halfway decent hot sriracha. Sometimes we have to make do with Tabsco sriracha. Ironically the Tabasco hot sauce is hard to get.
Rumor has it that in a few weeks asparagus might be out.

I'm having difficulty locating hot sauce, which I enjoy with my eggs.

Today, I revisited Walmart to buy a few items. Regrettably, they still didn't have hot sauce, Kellogg's Special K, and only had one box of Cottonelle flushable wipes in stock. Consequently, I chose to order the hot sauce from Amazon once I arrived back home.

I made sure to prepare for everything, but I seem to have forgotten to include hot sauce in my list.

Since "buffalo squirrel wings" are on my bug-in survival menu, hot sauce is indeed essential.

Cayenne pepper keeps better though.

I keep hearing from mechanics that some car parts are incredibly hard to get. Vehicles can sit for weeks/months, unusable. Not a happy scenario.

One more reason to insulate oneself from global supply chains in any way possible.
