According to the Wall Street Journal, cocoa prices have been rising due to increasing demand for chocolate. Apparently the International Cocoa Organization thinks that demand will be greater than supply for the next five years, which will cause chocolate prices to continue going up.

Hopefully all your Halloween candies have been eaten by now – but you may have some Christmas candies lying around, or maybe you’re getting a head start on Valentine’s Day sweets? Neil sent me this link about suggested beer and candy pairings, in case you’re looking for a grown-up way to indulge.

Via Neil, here’s a fun piece about a piece of art made entirely of Goldenberg Peanut Chews. The artwork is 2 feet by 4 feet and weighs 26 pounds. I wonder how they keep it from going bad while it’s on display.
