Ginger Coffee Popsicles

I am going through a lot of ginger right now as I am adding it to my cooking and the tea I am drinking. I also made ginger coffee popsicles during lockdown as an afternoon treat.

Just before lockdown we had a huge call for sanitiser. I placed several orders with my supplier, but they could not fulfil all of them. This was due to a shortage of bottles, rather than product. As they were expecting a two week lead time on the bottles, I dropped them an email the first week of April. As an essential service provider they should have been operational. I did not get a reply, and was not concerned as my customers were not trading, and did not need to spray down their work surfaces. Two weeks later I sent an email asking them if they were open. When I got a reply telling me they were, I enquired about stock but got no response. By the time we opened for business I needed to find an alternative and there were lots for me to choose between.

I eventually sent them an email cancelling my order. It was substantial and that garnered a response. Straight away my phone rang. Was I sure I wanted to cancel. The sanitiser was in Cape Town, waiting for me. And reformulated to be over 70% alcohol. I explained that had they replied to my original emails I would have taken the stock. But by the time they called I had already purchased elsewhere. However, I am sure it will not take too long for my customers to work their way through what I have supplied. Everything has to be sprayed and sanitised now. Hands of people coming into premises. Work surfaces during the day. And goods that come in from suppliers.
