Someone Just Bought All the Cocoa In Europe

I can’t decide if this person is just a cocoa lover who wants to keep it all for themselves or a cruel Scrooge who wants to deprive everyone else of chocolatey goodness, but either way it’s interesting: an unknown person or group of people bought up all the cocoa in Europe for about £658 million. Some people believe it was a hedge fund driving up the global price of cocoa, but I prefer to think it was some kind of eccentric billionaire who is going to build a huge mansion out of cocoa beans. At least I know what to get my cousin in London for her birthday this year.
