we’re halfway thru april, u know what tht means?
HOW DOES THIS MAKE ME LAUGH EVERY FUCKING YEAR!?
I checked it on Google, THIS IS REAL. HOLY CRAP NO I CAN’T TAKE THIS. What do you mean, there will be no chocolate wtf. O.O GO PLANT MORE COCOA TREES NOW OHMYGOD.
It’s not just about cocoa trees, many farmers are refusing to work because they are being paid VERY low wages.
i have never reblog this kind of things before, and less with a reply but here it is:
I live in the south of México, where the best cocoa is born, the ground is so fertile that one of my uncles grew some pumpking plants out of just trowing the seeds on the outside (the chikens pecked it so bad that it died soon after the pumpking had a reasonable size).
My family owns some good terrain covered in cocoa trees, they cultivate them, store it and prepare it for selling and yes. The wages are offensively low.
Many farmers near my grandmother’s place have told me that their products (cocoa seeds and “manteca”) are sold to brands like nestle, where they took it to their factories to make chocolate. They pay way less than the minimun per kilogram for the best cocoa ever.
There’s this local brand (Cacep) that makes the most awesome chocolates that i have tried. It’s taste is sweet and they dont leave that olily aftertaste like any other brand wich indicates it’s “purity” (no vegetable oil and weird stuff, only cocoa, sugar and milk). And it sells just enough to keep existing!!
Talking with their owners (Cacep), they prefer to sell their materia prima to the multinational companies wich genetares more income than making the best chocolate to be sold.
I feel really sad about this because we end up buying foreginer chocolate wich is very low quality compared to what we have.
They sell us what we produce, expensiver and with a well designed paper cover.
): Sorry, this was way too long than intended.
Surrender now or prepare to fight!
Prepare for bubbles!
We’re drinking doubles!
To protect the world from carbonation!
