    The price will just rise and rise until it becomes a luxury and then less people will buy it and more people will be encouraged to produce it. That's economics.

    I'm sure I heard that chocolate doesn't ever go off. It's something like, it might change colour and texture but it doesn't contain water so there's nothing in it that can rot... so in theory it should last forever. Stock up!

    Yes, it can go shiny and have a white "bloom", which is just the fats separating from the sugar etc. It's edible but probably doesn't taste quite as nice as when it is fresh. Part of the joy of chocolate for me is the texture, and it's not so good if that goes.

    Yeah I've had chocolate that's gone white and it doesn't taste good. I used to crave Cadbury's, with them not selling it in France, but my mum put me off it by sending chocolate that was either close to the sell by date, or already out of date. It doesn't have to same texture and that's a big part of the enjoyment.
