    No coffee, no chocolate, no seafood. My grandkids are going to be eating those cockroach bars from Snowpiercer.

    I'll be 77 by then and in more need of chocolate than ever.
    Ever the pessimist I expect most of us to be wiped out by one cataclysmic event or another well before then.

    Suits me. Chocolate tastes like dirt to me. And, there is so much brown colored sugary fake chocolates out there, chocolate is kind of a catch-all term now. Half the things called "chocolate" may have only trace elements of cocoa, like chocolate icing on donuts. I have a humorous ongoing debate with the fam now over my distaste for chocolate. I've pointed out accurately, if you go to a party and there is a spread of deserts, that first stuff to deplete is the non chocolate selections. The last ones are always left over "chocolate" somethings.

    I've nearly got them convinced, that its a mass subliminal conspiracy by the chocolate producers, to hyp-motize us into just *thinking* we love chocolate, when in reality,we really like other stuff better when there's a selection.

    I once bet my kids each $100 they couldn't eat a tea spoon of cocoa. This was before they knew chocolate was 99% sugar, and only 1% cocoa. Man that was a hoot watching them gag, run, scream - still got my scratch, lol.

    Besides, at this rate I'll either have been murdered or thrown in a gulag well before 2050 anyway.

    You're right. How could anyone get tired of chocolate and make it to 103?

    I was just enjoying a giant Hersheys with Almonds last night. I know Hersheys isn't TGP approved because of the meager caonookio content and butter fat and calibraium extract, :nono but still I think it's pretty darn good for a chocolate fix if you need a fast one. :red

    Hershey makes the best tasting chocolate IMO. I just apparently don't like cacao!

    Oh don't worry- no need to stock up.
    It's only chocolate that they're talking about.
