Easter celebrations are the perfect excuse to munch on chocolate. In the long run, sweet toothers might find the habit more affordable than what savory snackers are encountering.
Cocoa, the main raw material for chocolate, is now one of the few foods that is slightly cheaper than before Russia’s February 24 invasion of Ukraine. A tonne of cocoa currently costs $2,483.27, compared with $2,489.84 on the day the conflict began, data from agricultural analytics firm AgFlow shows. By comparison, the threat of grain shortages as a result of the fighting has pushed up the prices of staples like corn.
