Chile Chocolate Attack

Katrinka went with a group of Bali International Women's Association  BIWA to Delicacao Bali a real cacao plantation yesterday a couple of hours away in world heritage scenic Tabanan and brought back some chocolate naturally and one type was a bunch of little Chile Chocolates. She said they were too hot for anyone to eat more than one. I had three. Wasn't that hot spicy but I can see that a person wouldn't want to gobble them down. But then a strange thing happened. My tongue started swelling up and got two really hard knots fairly large in it toward the tip. It took a while for me to realize I was having an allergic reaction to the chile chocolate. In twenty minutes it started to subside. I ate another to see what would happen. Nothing. I've had another three since then. Nothing. Hmm. - dc
