You know what’s not selling like hotcakes? Hotcakes

In the past five years, pancake mix sales dropped 1.5 percent, according to Bloomberg.

The report said we spend on average $1.16 a year on pancake mix. If you do the math, that’s about the same as buying one box of Bisquick every three years.

It turns out hotcakes aren’t selling like hotcakes after all. Maybe it’s time to update the idiom for modern times. 

Sadly “selling like kale” just doesn’t have the same ring to it. 

If you’re a member of your local public radio station, we thank you — because your support helps those stations keep programs like Marketplace on the air.  But for Marketplace to continue to grow, we need additional investment from those who care most about what we do: superfans like you.

Your donation — as little as $5 — helps us create more content that matters to you and your community, and to reach more people where they are – whether that’s radio, podcasts or online.

When you contribute directly to Marketplace, you become a partner in that mission: someone who understands that when we all get smarter, everybody wins.
