On friday I had a horrible hell of a reaction that lasted to late night monday that happened right after drinking some pumpkin drink with the torani. Nothing else unusual that day.

You sure love your sweet liquidy yummies dont you? :D

What are the ingredients?

And you know...sometimes other things make us feel bad. For instance, I started taking a new vitamin C yesterday, so today it is the big D. Vitamin C can do that to you. And Tamarind fruit will give me literally non-stop D for 24 hours. Scary D.

Maybe you are sensitive to something else in the syrup.

Could it be just too much sugar? That will happen to me sometimes.

Directly from Torani's FAQs........

Which syrups contain Gluten?

At this time, we only have two syrups, Toasted Marshmallow and Sugar Free Vanilla which is known to contain a small amount of barley which does contain gluten. We are unaware of any gluten in our other syrups. We also do not add any casein to our syrups and are unaware of its presence in any of our ingredients.

I like to try new things for my carb loads so yeah I try a lot of sweets. Though last night was excellent. I kept it fatty and not so sugary. For example I had two big hempshakes (like my milkshakes posted in the baking and cooking tips) rather than something like a bunch of apples and a quart of ice cream. My insides are thanking me today.

Anyway it could be the result of too much sugar, but I felt pretty close to dying. I had hallucinations, difficulty thinking, suicide ideation (from being confused and hopeless not depressed), severe D and cramps, feverish feelings, chills, etc... for FOUR days! I've had lots of sugar in an instant before because of my carb loads and it was never that bad.

There is caramel coloring in the pumpkin blend but like I said the site has a huge chart of allergens with none of them checked.


I had the pumpkin which definitely was not worth it. Though it was a learning experience. When I first started getting symptoms I was so furious that I almost grabbed a pizza or something that I sometimes crave (mainly for nostalgia sake rather than taste) but was able to rationalize myself into not doing. And I learned to STAY WITHIN MY BOUNDS. NO MORE SUSPICIOUS FOODS FOR PYRO! And no more eating things that bother me but don't kill me like daifuku and apples. Yes, apples. They will definitely be hard since I just discovered honey crisp, but I can easily know for 100% that they will burn my mouth and stomach everytime I eat them. I've actually known that before cutting out gluten, but ate them anyway "because it wasn't so bad". If it hurts, why bother?

You know I react to any Stasero syrups with caramel coloring. They swear no gluten but I react nonetheless and have given them up. Kind of hard to track darn the culprit when there is no specific ingredient.
