Food favorites that may soon be extinct

For many of us, food is more than just sustenance. It's a window into a variety of cultures around the world, or an expression of love that comes from a parent, friend, or significant other. However, what happens when some of the key ingredients in our favorite dishes are no longer available for our use? Well, we may soon find out. Barley is one of many ingredients that are in jeopardy, and it’s all thanks to climate change. This means we will soon have to say goodbye to cool, refreshing beer. It’s being predicted that beer consumption around the world will decline by 16%, while prices for the refreshing beverage are likely to double. The really bad news is that isn't all. Tequila prices are likely to shoot up due to increased demand for the liquor in New York and Tokyo, specifically. While tequila itself might not go extinct, quality tequila may, as the increased pressure on production is not allowing the agave plants to develop to their full maturity. With numerous farmers using immature plants, how long will it be before we're all drinking from the bottom-shelf tequila bottle? And not even hummus is safe! Chickpeas are also facing difficulties in meeting their demand, as temperatures in countries like India (the world's lead exporter of chickpeas) have risen and droughts have become more numerous. These are just a few examples, but there are plenty of other foods that may very well be gone for good, and very soon at that. If you're a big fan of margaritas, hummus, or a nice, cold pint, you better click through this gallery to learn which items you'll need to start buying in bulk before they disappear… forever!
