girls, you should go get some chocolate before the price shoots up..

I meant to post this earlier, but got distracted with frozen pipes and Chinese songs. DH and I were talking about it last night... the Ivory Coast is shutting down chocolate and coffee production...

Here's a linky.

I'm going to be very bitchy if I can't get coffee and chocolate. This must be the ONE case it's great the US doesn't produce anything. No one can shut down production protest of Obama.

  • I live right by the original cadbury factory so we just buy thousands of reject chocolates all the time and put them in storage. Oh the smell of chocolate in the morning when you open windows in the summer. Yum.

  • There are many places right along the equator that produce coffee beans, cacao and cocaine. Are there any fair trade products coming out of the Ivory Coast? I see this as a + if it reduces child labor violations-

  • Good thing coffee is grown in many regions of the world! And so is cacao, where chocolate came from... it's native to the Americas.
