News that the hazelnut crops of Turkey are in danger (who knew Turkey produced 70% of the world’s hazelnuts?) is treated almost lightheartedly as a threat to Nutella fans.

A few weeks back there was an article about the water needs of almonds that was eye opening and alarming. It takes about a gallon of water to grow a single friggin’ almond! Um, might as well go back to cow milk in that case. Given the water crisis in the west, 10% of all the water going to almond growing seems ridiculously irresponsible.
