    They were not kidding! I read it in the Business section of the paper. The flooding in Indonesia and other parts of the cocoa producing world have been clobbered. I think stockpiling is in order!

    Oh no! What is this world coming to?? First, fabric prices going up, now chocolate! What's next? I bet it's a conspiracy cooked up by a bunch of spouses in their last ditch effort to get their partners to pay more attention to them! LOL

    Living without chocolate has made my waste line smaller. So it won't bother me at all.
