actually, their Almond bars are pretty darn good!
Forbes uses Betteridge's law of headlines, so the answer is naturally no. Business Insider, uh, enough said.
According to Zager and Evans, that doesn't happen until 3535.
I fear that the unintended consequences from self-aware AI may be far more impactful at that point
i'll be 94 by then.hopefully they will be microdosing me with lsd or mescaline.
Assuming there is still chocolate, at 88, eat all the chocolate you want.
Anyone remember the Reggie Bar in the '70s? It was a "chocolaty" bar......crap made by Monsanto, with zero chocolate in it.
We'll survive. Better living through chemistry, right??
Even more important is the loss of the fly species that pollinate them. That could happen even earlier.
Meh... I will be 83 then and won't be allowed to eat it anyway.
I hope to be 76.
And there damn well better be some chocolate goodness left for me to enjoy.
I'd say stock up on bananas and coffee put they probably won't keep very well. Gruel will be very popular in the future.

Hydroponic cacao farming? You can do most anything in a warehouse if you want to. Decades ago, someone declared that blond hair and blue eyes were doomed. Oddly, blue eyes are the product of one mutation, as best I understand, and any two people with blue eyes are related. As long as there is bleach and there are contact lenses, I'm not too concerned.
im more worried about the air and water quality in 2050.
I'll be 103 and tired of chocolate by then.
I reckon scientists are more likely to go extinct than chocolate.
