Do you like to enjoy a nice piece of chocolate… candy, cake, etc? If so, you might want to stock up and get your cravings filled now. Or just simply start ‘weaning’ yourself from it.

If you haven’t heard, there is a CHOCOLATE SHORTAGE! I couldn’t believe it when I saw my mom post something about this on Facebook today. I thought it had to have been some sort of a joke.

Apparently the mines in the U.S. have just about hit the end of their supplies and the rest of the world is realizing it’s a not very profitable to plant the trees that take years to produce. There are many things affecting the upcoming shortage and researchers are now busy trying to create a replacement for chocolate. They say we don’t have to worry about it disappearing anytime soon but to expect price increases over the years.

You can read more about this shortage on idiotica.com and on MSN Money.

I’m not like a lot of females who HAVE to have chocolate all the time but I do enjoy my share of candy bars, hot chocolate, etc.

What about you – are you a chocolate addict? What will you do when the price of chocolate increases due to lower supply? What will you do if chocolate disappears?
