Adios Chocolate

Idea

Chocolate has been a typically sweet treat, usually brown and a delicious food preparation of cacao seeds, roasted and ground. It is made in the form of a liquid, paste, or in a block, or used as a flavoring ingredient in other foods. Some can't live without it.

Most folks know that we get vanilla from a bean that is produced by an orchid. Ah, but where does the chocolate that goes into our candies, cakes, and sweets come from? Contrary to what we might have been told as kids, chocolate milk doesn’t come from chocolate cows.

Now comes bad news for chocolate lovers. The bad word that this international treat which is grown in many parts of Africa may no longer be around is a couple of decades. Chocolate is on track to go extinct in 40 years http://read.bi/2zCSrVM
