A World Without Chocolate?

Oops, sounds like someone is trying to kill The Shmata Queen. ABC reports:

It's hard to imagine Valentine's Day without chocolate, but some scientists say that it's possible that chocolate could one day be in short supply.

What would the world be like without this decadent, delectable and divine dessert?

If you read the rest of the article it suggests that there is a potential sustainability issue for cacao. I am not an expert on any of this, but what I read sounds plausible. Perhaps now would be a good time to change professions and dedicate myself to becoming a "Green" Willie Wonka.

life without chocolate?

That's almost as bad as life without sex, or life without coffee.

That's not life, man....
