Stay calm, but the world is running out of chocolate

Chocolate supplies are running out

Try not to panic, but the world is heading for a chocolate shortage. Chocolate. Shortage.

That's right, there's no coincidence that Caremelo Koala's are getting pricey.

We're eating too much chocolate, and cocoa plants can't grow at the same rate!

This amazing looking cake could be heading towards extinction in less than 50 years.

And no one, not even this dog wants other cake WITHOUT chocolate. Can you imagine?!

What about the Easter Bunny?!

A FEW FACTS

- 70% of the world’s cocoa is produced in Africa. Dry weather has damaged cocoa plants, and it’s getting worse. Eeek!

- A disease called Frosty Pod has wiped out 30-40% of the world’s cocoa.

- We’re eating more than ever, and the plants can’t grow that fast!

- Farmers are ditching their cocoa plants for other crops that can make them more money. Oh, say it isn’t so.

So, might be worth weaning yourself off the good stuff OR, getting your secret stash started now.

BRB, just stocking up on supplies…
