Is it still chocolate? ~ the little lioness

Is it still chocolate?

On the quest to till be able to eat yummables without nasty things happening inside of me, I’ve been trawling the “health food” aisles… can’t do health food stores yet, aisles will be my starting point.

Dairy and Sugar free chocolate

There is so much out there now for gluten free! A few years ago when I’d heard of such a thing as Coeliac’s Disease after having a friend and a relative diagnosed with it, and earning how to eat with them, it was all specialist stuff, now you’ll even find gluten free products alongside the ‘regular’ floured stuff…

My eyes were looking for anything that was dairy-free or vegan (because then i KNOW there’s nothing complicated hidden down the label).. and I managed to find a Dark Chocolate here :)

Dairy and Sugar free chocolate

The Sweet William “I’m Sweet Enough” bar…
It does, however, have Maltitol in it which, according to Wikipedia is a “sugar alcohol”… which is large doses could unfortunately have a laxative effect. Not one side effect I need right now!

Anyway. I’ve eaten half the bar (25g) and so far so good on the stomach front… It also tasted reasonable. Not as yummy as anything from the Lindt Cafe but better than missing out on chockies altogether! :)

    I generally steer clear from those things that warn about laxative effects-but good to know that you didn’t have any reactions! :)

    So long as I don’t do anything dumb, like eat a block of it :p half a bar at a time seems a good amount
