Nightmare scenario...

According to the Times today, cocoa has trebled in price over the last decade, and for a number of reasons (political unrest, climate problems) stocks could be exhausted by 2014!! What should chocoholics do? Stockpile ( some are already doing it) or wean themselves off the dark bean?

Re: Nightmare scenario...

What a terrible thought. Had just eaten a Cadburys creme egg and then I read that. Will chocolate dealing become the new black market drugs scene. I could not be without my chocolate even if it meant a trip to a seedy backstreet dealer.

Re: Nightmare scenario...

Well, the price of food commodities has soared generally, not just cocoa beans. But apparently the unrest in the Ivory Coast and bad harvests have brought on this scenario.

Re: Nightmare scenario...

Not if the crop is blighted it doesn't. And if there's a war or conflict in the country it sits there and rots. If you don't believe me Neil, I've read this in a few other places but there are always the doubters
