Ebola threatens to take bite out of world's chocolate supply
from The Washington Times
Ebola may now be threatening a good portion of the world's chocolate supply, thanks to the Ivory Coast's decision to shut its borders with Liberia and Guinea. Ivory Coast is the world's largest producer of cacao, the raw ingredient used in M&M's candies, Butterfingers candy bars and Snickers Bars, Politico reported. But the closed borders means workers can't get to their bean-picking jobs — and just at the dawn of the cacao harvest season.
