Like Ice Cream?

Better buy a beehive then.

In THIS article from Haagen-Daz claims that the disappearing bee colony problem in America (Named the colony collapse disorder  or CCD) will have a direct and substantial effect on the products companies like them can produce.

This isn't a new subject, debate and study on why Bee colonies have been shrinking rapidly has been in the news for over a year now, but I think this is the first time were seeing a public company react directly to this issue.

Like dairy prices, Honey prices have also risen slightly over the last year as a result of issue. I've read articles claiming the source of the problem stems from everything from Global Warming and Air Pollution to Cell phone signals interfering with bees natural radar. Whatever the cause, hopefully we find out soon... cause I dont know about you but I cant live without my Chunky Monkey.
