Hi! I just bought a 1.86 oz (52.730 g) Snickers bar for $1.67! (1.05 GBP!) Man! The cashier told me that the cost of chocolate has gone up because of the Ebola Virus! I said "What"?! She said, "Because the cocoa beans come from Africa. And the workers can't ..." ... she trailed off ...
What the heck! I said to the cashier "They are getting us where it hurts!". At least, me! I love my chocolate! I'll usually choose a Snickers bar when I buy a chocolate bar, or a Hershey's bar. Man oh man! As the cashier at this snack shop said, "They will get us wherever they can!"
Bye for now! ~~~Nancy P.S. Mmmm. The Snicker's bar was good - but was it worth it for $1.67!? I don't know. Maybe not after today ... but, when that craving comes? I don't know....
How is his company, Dante Confections, located in North Billerica, Massachusetts, surviving? Falcone is passing on a 10 percent price increase to his customers, the candy shops. And they’ll pass it on to, guess whom? You. And this isn’t just about truffles. For those trying to fill their plastic pumpkins last-minute for Friday’s trick-or-treaters, Paul Solman found out in New York last week that the price of individual Kit-Kats has risen 10 cents. So what’s causing the price to spike? As Paul reported on the NewsHour Tuesday, there are fears that the Ebola outbreak in West Africa is limiting the supply of cocoa. But just how rational those fears are is another question. There’s still plenty of cocoa, commodities trader David Martin told Paul on Making Sen$e, but cocoa traders are taking advantage of the hysteria to make money.
