It’s a battle as old as time itself. Chocolate or vanilla? Let’s say you wake up and you’re in a chair in a small room. There’s a couple big, rough hewn and unpleasant looking Russian fellows standing on either side of you and in front of you, there are two tubs of ice cream. One is vanilla, the other is chocolate. You can only choose one and there is no escape. You must eat the ice cream. Which do you choose?
I like to imagine that there’s a thinktank group at Hershey that’s just a group of 10 year old boys coming up with all sorts of things like “A Hershey chocolate facial”, soon to be followed up next year with a new ice cream topping called Hershey Squirts. Anyway, yes, this is a real product. A Hershey chocolate facial. I wouldn’t google for it, because lord knows what box of depraved Japanese perversity you might open.

With chocolate prices already on the rise, and with demand far outpacing supply, analysts expect that in 20 years, chocolate will a rare enough that you could expect to pay something around $11 and up for a chocolate bar that today is a dollar. The problem is that cocoa isn’t a very hearty plant, only able to grow in a sliver of latitude near the equator and there isn’t much room left for it to grow.
