Give coke and other drug lords something else to grow
Watch the dealers peddle chocolate to kids and parents outside schools....
Reminds me of a movie I once watched :p

why don't they just say "the production industry must double in size"? Saying you need another earth is just silly.

Because the truth is not that we need another earth, it's that we need...

 

ANOTHER UNIVERSE!! :o

Reminds me of and episode of Raising Hope, when they start making a very additive chocolate..people were in lines trying to buy chocolate from them, like

junkies :)

 

the problem is not just chocolate, but there's allot of other resources that aren't enough for the increasing demand.

Oh they'll just use anal sac secretions from donkeys instead of cocoa, like they do with Beaver butt juice for vanilla flavoring.  Disgusting what is acceptable now.

the scarcity might just help play its part in curing global obesity, but it'd suck not to have the most ubiquitous snack around cheaply available.

this might have already happened, but wont some mega-evil corporation like Monsanto just modify the cocoa plant to product more fruit and grow faster?

A chocolate universe? Sweeet!

 

The world is probably going to end (again) before we run out of cocoa.

I do nothing of the sort.

Looks like the choco-ohols will need to cut down to help save chocolate.
