A mysterious chocolate deal went down today, a man bought the entire supply of Cocoa beans in Europe. To put it in perspective reports say that it amounts to 1.7 trillion dollars worth or "enough to fill five Titanics" (which I have to admit makes me imagine five Titanics full of cocoa beans setting off across the frigid Atlantic to their watery doom). I wonder why they chose to measure the chocolate in "Titanics"? Maybe it's because the price of beans in Europe could sky rocket since he's got the whole market under his thumb. Uh oh.
When I first heard this my initial thought was, is this for real? It seems so. Here are links to the article in the National Post.
