We've already experienced a bad pumpkin season and rising peanut butter prices, but GOOD magazine has rounded up other notable foods to hoard.

Perhaps the biggest hit to mankind will be a bread shortage, with wheat crops falling due to rising temperatures and grain prices increasing. "Over the next 20 years, expect bread prices to rise 90 percent," GOOD reports — startling news since grains tend to be the go-to food for impoverished communities.

We should also expect prices to rise for coffee, chocolate, and bourbon, not to mention honey and peanuts. A world without chocolate, coffee, bourbon, and bread? Scary news, folks.
