According to FOX 4, IRI, a data analytics and market research company, predicts that whipped toppings, liquid gravy, frozen pie/pastry shells, refrigerated pies and bakery pies could be in short supply this year, along with canned cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie as aluminum costs are up almost 90%.

However, it appears there won't be a shortage on turkeys this year, though the birds may actually be bigger than average which would add to the cost of your dinner.

Shoppers might have a harder time finding a fresh turkey smaller than 16 pounds because demand is up due to smaller holiday gatherings, but frozen turkeys in all sizes will be in abundance," according to Consumer Reports.
