Chocolate lovers got some bittersweet news on Monday.

Cocoa bean experts are predicting a big shortage in chocolate over the next eight years. In fact, they say the world will be about 1 million tons short.

It seems there is a growing taste for chocolate in China, plus there's a worldwide rising demand because people are more aware of dark chocolate's health benefits.

Reports say the price may go up so you may see more nuts and fillers in your candy.
