Sugar Sunday!

The spark that started the fire.

I have never been allergic to anything consumable in my life. Though I’ve always been allergic to perfume and scented body products. So imagine my surprise when I ate this delicious Kinder Egg look-a-like treat.

My lips swelled up like someone decked me in the mouth and nausia and headaches soon followed.

It turns out, after it happened 2 more times sans chocolate, but with other consistant factors, that I am allergic to ibuprofen. No idea why or how, but after 25 years of taking it I am now allergic…. wtf?

But I digress.

They are called Futura Choco Eggs, and while they look exactly like their Kinder counterpart, yellow capsule and all, they are not.

These guys. Contained Pokémon toys, which is what drew me to them in the first place as I am ever in love with Pokemon. The chocolate was okay, no where near the quality of Kinder, but still edible.

The only sad thing to come out of this, aside from my sudden allergy, is the fact that I threw away 4 eggs worth of chocolate…..

I know I’ve posted these pictures before… buuuuuut what the hey… lol

Oh Allergies…

I’m allergic to a lot of thinks, mostly skin care related and never food… I’ve never had a food allergy until I moved here.

An online acquaintance of mine bought these things called Futura Choco Egg. They are like the European Kinder Eggs where it’s a milk and white chocolate egg around a yellow capsule that contains a toy. I grabbed 5 because they remind me of my childhood in Germany and contained Pokémon toys!

I may have bought 5, but it only took one. Within an hour of eating one my lips were swollen to three times their normal size. And nearly 12 hours later I woke up to vomit and it was full of undigested chocolate. Now, I’m not a doctor but I’m pretty sure after 12 hours it would be out of my stomach….

Anywho, I ended up with crazy nausea and a hard core migraine for 4 days until I finally felt like myself again…

Needless to say, I won’t be eating the others for risk of a Allergic reaction as well as the risk of being hospitalized… But at least I have 5 new Pokémon figurines! 😀
