nono  Oh, but life is cruel....especially around Valentines day! How many of you can tolerate chocolate?. I can't....and it is sooooo unfair!!! When I was younger, I used to say:"If I go to Heaven and there aint no chocolate, I aint staying!" Ha! The joke is on me....I can't have chocolate of any kind any more. Karma I guess. The milk chocolate makes my tummy sick....and the dark chocolate gives me migraines!
For all of you who are able to indulge....have one for me ok....or go ahead and have 2!

Chocolate doesn't bother me, but I have switched to eating only dark chocolate, less fattening, better for you, with a cocoa content 80% or higher that you don't have to give up completely on chocolate and you may find the dark chocolate easier on your guts.

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it!  LOL  :)

I eat organic chocolate and it's ok in moderation. If I eat a regular choc. bar, I am in BIG trouble. This is very sad for me because I absolutely LOVE Coffee Crisp and I want one RIGHT now!!! :-( j/k LOL

Chocolate is fine for me. No problems with it. I simply cannot imagine life without it. Sorry for those of you who cannot tolerate it.

Hi everybody,
I want to share this with you all and I hope it will help some of you with Valentine's day just around the corner.
As you all know, my 21 year old son has CD, he was dx July 2007. Chocolate was a big no no (got sick every single time even if he had a little bite of it) and to make sure he was not tempted we made sure that no chocolate came into our house in any shape or form. During the Holidays, we were invited to my sister's house and of course she had chocolate on the table, my son resisted for a while but then he gave in and started to eat some. He loved the chocolate and said the taste was really good. I was upset that he had chocolate after all the efforts we put in to make sure he would not give in and banned this treat that we all loved from our house. Make a long story short, the chocolate had no bad effect on him and he felt fine. I figured he was just lucky, he then asked my sister the brand of chocolate she had in her house that night and she answered that it was from the company where she works. Anyhow we found out that it was made in the nut free factory they have. This was a revelation for us and since that day, my son eats chocolate once or twice a week in moderate portion and no more problems, but if he eats chocolate and it states on the label that it may contain traces of nuts, he gets sick. I hope this will help some of you to enjoy Valentine's day!
P.S.: He is not allergic to nuts, he was tested and test came back negative.

ROF****!! Me too. I can get sick & have micro-flares if I make a glutten of myself. Fudge is worse.
Anyway, how can you hate a food that can trigger the same chemical brain reactions as sex?! :)
