The price of cocoa has been on the rise, meaning that Easter treats are likely cost more this year.

At the beginning of March, cocoa prices were US$6,125 per tonne, according to the International Cocoa Organization (ICCO). By March 26, the price had jumped to $9,361.
The rise in prices is due to poor harvests in producing countries, like the Ivory Coast and Ghana, which has caused supply shortages. Crops were also damaged due to heavy rains and crop disease, according to Trading Economics.
