This just in: Gizmodo reports that the world is running out of chocolate! The article says- “According to the Cocoa Research Association, we’re consuming more chocolate than we’re producing cocoa.” This is simply unacceptable!
Why haven’t the chocolate bigwigs ensured that this tragedy doesn’t happen EVER? Hershey’s, Cadbury, Ferrero, Nestle, Lindt, what have you done? Why is this happening?
“In 20 years chocolate will be like caviar. It will become so rare and so expensive that the average Joe just won’t be able to afford it.”
This is very sad news. I, for one, cannot imagine a world where chocolate is something only the rich and famous can get on a regular basis. One of life’s simple joys for me is walking to the nearest 7-11 after a particularly hormonal morning and getting a bar of Kit-Kat.
The good thing about this is that because the world is now aware of this near tragedy that’s about to happen, we can take steps to ensure that it DOESN’T happen. Save mass-produced chocolate!
