No, we won’t run out of chocolate by 2050



News of a global chocolate doomsday has gone viral, with chocoholics fearing an end to their fix. But don’t panic: Chocolate is not on the brink of extinction — yet.

The new year has just begun, and chocolate lovers have already been hit with scary news: We could run out of chocolate in 40 years, as climate change makes it too hot for cocoa plants to survive.

The news spread quickly on social media, with chocoholics fearing for their future fix.

T-shirts and mugs with the slogan, “Save our planet. It’s the only one with chocolate,” took on new poignancy. But are we really facing a future without it?

No, say scientists.
