The champagne is chilling and the ball has been raised, read to drop as we count off the last few seconds of 2021. It has been a challenging year for many marked by the ongoing pain caused by the pandemic. People may not be quite as happy to say goodbye to 2021 as they were 2020, but it's fair to say that many Americans won't shed too many tears at this year ending.

But, before we can close the books on the past year, some of us have parties to host, bowl games that require snacks, and other reasons we need to hit a store before they close for the year,
