Say it ain't so!

Just found this on the net:
Workers in the cocoa management bodies of the Ivory Coast have gone on strike. Ivory Coast is the world's largest producer of cocoa, controlling almost forty percent of the global supply. A continued strike could lead to chocolate shortages this Valentine's Day or even sooner.
This could be dire. Thanks to PZ at Pharyngula for alerting me to the impending disaster.
