Don't Believe Everything You Read, Chocolate Isn't Going Extinct

Your holidays, like mine, may have been ruined by recent news stories proclaiming that chocolate will go extinct within a few decades, but don't start stress-eating Hershey bars just yet. 

It seems the Business Insider story that got regurgitated by other news outlets over New Year's relied on climate-change information from two years ago--information which actually showed that scientists are on track to genetically adapt cacao trees before global warming can wipe them out. 

So basically what I am saying is we may have to start eating genetically modified chocolate in the near future, but as long as it still tastes like a Snickers or a Twix, who cares?!
