Allergic Reaction to Candy? Can't Be


Wednesday, November 11

Everyone knows that over a week ago we participated in the ritual of Trick-or-Treat. We discovered that someone along the route we took pulled a big trick on us.

Let me explain. When we brought our treats home, Stone and Tement took them and hid them from us. We threw such a fit that they gave us our property back. I always believed that their taking our property was not fair practice.

After we got the treats back, we got a treat whenever we wanted it. On the second day, I thought something was wrong, but I could not figure out what. I felt okay. Had no aches or pains. Yet, I felt different. My clothes felt a little snug, and I experienced a little discomfort.

When I talked with the others, they denied having any problems. I watched their actions, and they looked as if they too suffered from some discomfort.

At this point, I did not associate our problem with the treats. But by the time I got to the end my goodies a few days later, something told me that I had eaten something that caused an allergic reaction. It hit the others as well.

Something in that bag of goodies caused us to swell. Our bodies had swollen up to the point that we could not put on certain pieces of clothing. Tement checked us out with the health monitor. The device must need to be recalibrated because it showed that we were healthy. Yet, it did not explain why our bodies ballooned out in such a manner.

Though, I know we are not allergic to popcorn. We looked at the list of items we got. This item is the only thing in our package we have not eaten before.

Out of the packages of chocolate-peanut candy bars, chocolate coated peanut clusters, peanut butter cups, malted milk balls, chocolate-almond candy bars, pecan pralines, gumdrops, jelly beans, licorice, taffy bars, and hard candies, the only thing we figured it had to be the popcorn balls.

It has to be the material that binds the popcorn together. It couldn’t be that half a bag of candy that caused this. I don’t care what Stone says.
