A couple years ago... I was eating a PAYDAY candy bar and thought I was going to die. My throat closed up and I had trouble breathing. The only thing the doctor could come up with at the time was I must be allergic to the peanuts in the candy. I found this hard to believe because I grew up eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. But seeing the kind of reaction I had to the candy bar... I decided to steer clear of anything with peanuts. And I did for a few years. Over time, however... I forgot about it... and was back to smearing peanut butter on my toast, with no problems. The other night my hubby and I placed a carryout order for a couple sandwiches. And low and behold, there in the restaurant... was a big box of peanuts, with a sign encouraging customers to dig in while they waited for their orders. Not giving it a second thought, we got a tray, piled it with peanuts and started eating. They were delicious. Apparently my food allergy is a thing of the past. Did you ever have an adverse reaction to something you ate?
