That's it. World's ending.

Post by Lynnie on Wed Jun 15, 2011 2:29 pm

It's official. I've been diagnosed with an allergy to chocolate.
Seriously.
It developed in the past 6 months(!!!) to the point where I can't have it at all anymore without the skin in my mouth coming off and my lips swelling up.

CHOCOLATE!!!

First, I'm allergic to the sun. Then I became allergic to wine. Now, I'm allergic to chocolate. My husband said that I just made Valentine's Day so much harder for him and that I am going to have my Woman Club Card revoked.

Can I go back to being a kid again?

Btw...that whole "You don't really crave something until you are told you can't have it" adage? Totally true.

Oh no, an allergie to chocolate! I'am so sorry for you. That is really not ok.

I have an allergie to wine too. It is only an allergie to red wine. With the white wine I have no problems.

Crap.

I'm allergic to sun, then I became allergic to beef (you can imagine how much I miss bloody oozing slabs of rare prime rib... No )... becoming allergic to chocolate would be the last straw!

You can go wrong with jewelry, i am allergic to anything that isn't 14k yellow gold or surgical steel. If I try to wear fantasy earnings it makes my ears puss up in no time flat.

With any luck it will go away quickly!

I have heard that cranraisins can curb a choco craving because of the antioxidants or something?

Worth a shot!

OH my goodness! You poor thing! I feel like I should send flowers or a sympathy card! That is pure suckage! Olympic style!!! affraid Sad

I'm hoping the home remedies mentioned above can help you! On the bright side, when you can't have it, after a while you really don't miss it much at all except the odd time it suprises you. I've been 'beef free' for almost 10 years...no problem! NOW!

I think every lady here feels your pain!!

Okay, now there may be a little bit of hope at the end of your tunnel...my sister is allergic to the "vanillan" in the chocolate....you should see if that's what you're allergic to. It's hard to be allergic to pure chocolate, especially if it's made correctly, it should just be the cocoa, & sugar. Check it out--start with the really good stuff--Ghiardelli or Sharfenbarger. It's worth a try?

Oh, that is the most tragic thing I could hear!! Chocolate is my 1 addiction... well tat and face painting....

My friend is allergic to chocolate & is able to substitute carob. It's an "earthier" flavor, but really not that bad. You can make hot "cocoa", brownies, cake....

I worked with a woman who was allergic to lectithin (sp?) I know that is an ingredient in some chocolate. There has got to be a way to get around that allergy!!!

Oh you poor thing!!! I eat chocolate every single day, usually several times a day!! I think I need a piece right now!! I have never heard of anyone being allergic to chocolate, OMG, the only other thing I can imagine being worse would be being allergic to coffee!! I would just kick the bucket!

Oh no Lynnie, I am sorry Sad

Look at it this way, (I always like to see the glass 1/2 full Smile you could be allergic to gluten, dairy, stuff that is in everything, at least chocolate is not a main ingredient in food.

Sure it is! Chocolate is one of the basic food groups, along with peanut butter, bananas, coffee and cheese.

LOL I think that is cheating! WHO doesnt' like peanut butter anything (freezer right now - peanut butter & chocolate icecream), bananas and cheeze? My top favs are brie, marble, feta, paneer, and stringy mozza is meant to be eaten 4 times a day in small bits stolen from the fridge. You know...if it's small enough...it has no calories!!

Oh No! I didn't know that Shannon, My daughter is lactose intolerant and I swear there is mil in stuff you would not think there is so that makes total sense.

OMG!!! I looooooooove chocolate icecream, then I put some peanut butter in microwave and drizzle on top, you can add bananas and whipped cream, is so delish.

Feta cheese is one of my favorite too Smile

Yep, and the ultimate food is a peanut butter-banana cheesecake with a chocolate cookie crust/base and a mocha sauce...

With appetizers of plantains (bananas!) and feta in a filo pastry. With baked brie with a chocolate and peanut filling encased in puff pastry.

Nah... not bizarre, just... themed! What a Face

I actually think the brie baked in puff pastry with chocolate and nuts would be awesome... served with nilla wafers, digestive cookies, and water crackers.

Not sure about the plantains and feta but it would be worth a try.

I did train as a Chef when I was young and experiment all the time...

OMG you women are evil talking about such scrumptiousness!!!! lol
I love you

We did try a really good Belgian dark chocolate (no vanillan..sp??) and my mouth was raw and on fire. It's cocoa itself.

I've had carob before. I think the people who insist is can replace chocolate are NUTS! Mmmm...nuts. With chocolate. Mmmmmmm

I could actually go days without eating it before this but now it's on my mind! Not to mention I got asked to face paint at a chocolate festival. Suspect I'm sending one of my girls for me because I just don't think I could take it.

Allergic to beef? Is that the hormones in it? That's what my mom was allergic to, the natural hormones- not the added ones, btw. She had to go on a rotation diet.

In wine there are sulfides and tannens that people are allergic to. Red has way more than white in the tannen dept. I'm allergic to both. That's the suckiest part, I used to LOVE to drink a good plum wine...by putting a piece of chocolate on my tongue and then sipping the wine. The chocolate brings out the sweetness of the wine and enhances it the way strawberry does champagne. Now I can't enjoy either!

And mint chocolate was my thing. Nothing like cuddling up with a york patty or mint chocolate ice cream.

Even the Dunkin Donuts Iced Hot Chocolate got to me. Whodda thought that would have anything to do with actual chocolate?!

Metina, Shannon and Kim, I'm feeling very confident you three can pick up the slack for me. I very much appreciate it! ;-)

Thanks for sharing with me. Oh, and Hub said "What kind of jewelry am I supposed to get when you always paint it on anyway?!" lol He's got a point.

Oh, and Brie is amazing with anything I believe.
It is one of my addictions.

I know chocolate and cream cheese went very well together. And chocolate and marzipan or ricotta (omg I LOVE ricotta so many ways!).

Cheese. I love cheese. If that goes for me I will probably not be able to eat anything ever again. I will be on a protein shake diet...no chocolate flavoured ones of course.

Hmmmm...now I'm hungry.
