The novel coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic has led to skyrocketing sales of comfort foods such as hot dogs, pizza, and processed snacks. Some have tied the rising sales to nostalgia and a desire for psychological nurturing. But according to Business Insider, the products' long shelf lives and relatively inexpensive price tags also play a massive role. Take, for example, the humble yet beloved hot dog. Parents who have suddenly lost childcare still need to find a way to feed their children, often while continuing to work. Hot dogs are quick to prepare, convenient to make, and have a long, long shelf life. Unfortunately, food prices are rising just when millions of Americans are out of work and are trying to cut costs.
