Will chocolate be extinct by 2050?

Posted: Updated:

According to Business Insider, chocolate will only be around for another 32 years.

Business Insider pointed to climate change as the culprit.

The cacao crop, which chocolate is derived from, is grown on the west coast of Africa and would not be able to sustain the heat from rising temperatures.

But, gene-editing technology could possibly create variants of the plant to be grown at other altitudes.
