    On the News this morning, they were saying that chocolate prices will be going thru the ROOF! A simple Hershey's bar could cost 10 dollars - of course, it might take 20 years for it to peak. Plan ahead, quilters, make room in your freezers.............speaking of prices, did you see the price of BACON????? My DH, ya know, the one that has had 3 heart surgeries LIVES on bacon. He will NOT give it up............

    Saw the same story about chocolate. I think its by 2020 that it is expected to be that price. I doubt I'll have the habit kicked by then :-(

    Let the prices keep going up, my family is too fat anyway. There is more than 1 way to lose weight and in the future it may be thru starvation. I've already learned to live without the chocolate.

    the really sad thing is is that chocolate is not the only thing that will be going up. A friend who watches the markets and the Federal Reserve is really scared that in the next year we are going to see astronomical food prices. Some inflation expert on a Glen Beck show apparently agrees I hear. We're talking $20 for a loaf of bread...$77 for a can of coffee...and so on. At those prices I doubt chocolate will be high on anyone's priority list of must buy groceries. I do sincerely hope my friend is wrong!

    Guess we'll have to bite the bullet and buy coffee (my DH will NOT do without it), but I can make my own bread, grow my own veggies and raise and slaughter enough chickens and rabbits so that we won't go hungry. Sounds like it's time for more people to start homesteading...

    I can make bread and have chickens and rabbits too. Enough room to expand the garden if need be. We won't eat high on the hog (though I could squeeze one in I think) but we'd eat. Now if I could just talk dh into those milk goats!
