Church Members in Utah Cause Sparkling Cider Shortage (Millennium Briefs)
Associated Press 30Dec99 D4
By The Associated Press

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH -- Dan's Foods in Salt Lake City reports that its supply of nonalcoholic sparkling cider sold out days before New Year's Eve in a run on the LDS-favored bubbly that far exceeds previous years. The store sold more than 100 cases in December.

Dans' Assistant Manager Jolene Packard told the Associated Press, in an article available on its service, that the cider sales were very strong, "It's just flying out of here. But I'd rather see them drink that than the other."

The manager of an Albertson's in Ogden told the AP that his store also saw strong sales, more than 100 cases in two months. Each case holds 12 bottles.

The brief article didn't explain why sales would be stronger this year than in previous years.
