Calling All Chocolate Lovers

Dear My Chocolate Loving Readers,

As you may or may not have heard, there has been a story floating around the news stations that we are coming dangerously close to exhausting the world’s cocoa supplies.  If you don’t to read it, here’s the most important line:  “Candy manufacturers Mars Inc. and Barry Callebaut recently warned that consumer demand for chocolate will exceed cocoa supply by 2020, creating a gap in supply and demand of 1 million metric tons, according to a Bloomberg report.”

This is really very sound logic, no?

Ummmmm….Holy Crap.  The article goes on to say that “the International Cocoa Organization, a global group made up of cocoa producing and consuming countries, told USA TODAY Network that the prediction is not correct.”.

A few things.

  1. That prediction had better not be correct.
  2. How do I become a member of the International Cocoa Organization?  Because let me tell you, that sounds like a fantastic time.
  3. If this is in any way even close to true, I do not know how I will go on.
  4. That might sound a bit dramatic, but I eat chocolate just about every day.
  5. There is nothing better than chocolate.
  6. I am going to start hoarding chocolate now.
  7. (That will never work, I would eat it all).
  8. Don’t you all start hoarding chocolate now!!  I don’t need to be paying you all through the nose if we do run out in 6 years.
  9. I probably shouldn’t draw attention to this issue or that is exactly what will happen.
  10. Instead of drug dealers, we’ll have chocolate dealers.

Life is short people.  Go home and eat chocolate.  You never know when you might have to go without.  😦  That would literally be my worst day ever.  OK, not literally.  But wow.  I would be really really sad.
