Dessert lovers beware! Chocolate prices are on the rise

CREATED Feb. 17, 2014

TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - You better hold on to that leftover valentines day candy. Chocolate prices are about to skyrocket.

Demand for chocolate is taking a massive upswing, especially in emerging countries that have a sudden spike in wealthy customers.
 
Farmers around the world are now struggling to produce enough cocoa to satisfy everyone's sweet tooth! And that has driven prices of coca up nearly 10 percent this year alone.

Analysts predict it will continue to spike, and that means you could be paying more for chocolate.

I'm Stella Inger. I hope you'll join Guy Atchley and me tonight at 5, 6, and 10. We invite you to join the conversation at kgun9.com, Facebook and Twitter!

Have a great day!
