Just like there are different levels of sensitivity among celiacs, there appears to be different levels of sensitivity among super sensitive celiacs. What is definitely safe for one will get another. Enjoy Life chocolate chips get me too, yet I was able to eat the chocolate that a friend made. Unfortunately, she hasn't been able to get uncontaminated starting materials recently.


I am cane sugar sensitive and dairy-free. I have finally found 2 raw cacao choices at my local Whole Foods. I add EatRaw Imported & Certified Organic Really-Raw Chocolate Powder to shakes.

Renee's Raw Chocolate (www.reneesrawchocolate.com) is expensive, but awesome. The kind I buy has coconut on it, but she makes some without. Everything is organic and raw, including cacao butter, coconut, honey, cacoa nibs, goji berries, cacao powder, maca powder, mesquite powder, and sea salt(the only thing not raw organic).

I've been reacting to Enjoy Life chocolate chips and bars. I don't know why it is but I'm positive now that it's causing problems. Too bad because I thought they tasted pretty good :/

I just saw my earlier posts on this thread (from nearly a year ago) and have to clarify something I said.

While I have not tried a Snickers Bar again (and they are probably fine for most people)---

I was not very clear in my reply about the Enjoy Life chocolate chips and bars.

I tolerate them very well! :)

They have given me NO adverse reactions, and I am a fast responder to CC, but I DO have to be careful with too much sugar. It gives give me a "racy heart" and nausea.

I had to give those up too. I hope to find a chocolate source again someday. I thought I was addicted to chocolate, but I managed.
