The world is running out of chocolate in 2014?? Oh hell nah..the end IS near!
Forget earthquakes...forget war....the end is near! Why am I suddenly so convinced? Damn it we are running out of chocolate!!! (I'm dramatic I know)
Experts say there might be a chocolate ‘drought’ over the next several years due to the world political unrest especially in the Ivory Coast that produces 40 percent of the world’s cocoa beans. OH NO!!! run run and get every "Milky Way" while you can!!!
The political unrest in the country have caused certified cocoa bean producers to either flee or drastically reduce their output while training programs that can create new cocoa bean producers meeting fair trade standards, no longer exist. The immediate result is 30 percent higher chocolate prices – the long term result is no sustainable cocoa by 2014.
