Allergic? (4)

Filed under: General — Erwin @ 3:27 pm

Bah. M picked up a packet of Hot Tamales when we rented that movie last night, and I had several of them as well. But towards the end of the evening and more so in the morning I found that they had the same effect as the chewing gum had half a year ago.

What stands out in the ingredient lists is that they both use artificial flavouring and both are cinnamon flavoured. So my guess for the time being is that whatever it is that these companies use for cinnamon flavouring does not work very well with me. As I’m pretty sure I’ve had them before, I’m wondering if the “more kick—more intense cinnamon flavor has been added” part is to blame for that.

  1. I knew someone in college that was allergic to one of the common artificial cinnamon flavors, so it is at least possible.

  2. It’s always good to know I’m not just going crazy. 😉

    Back in February my friend Erika also confirmed she’d had something similar happen to her (Or was it someone she knew? Ugh, I’d hate to misremember now). And today M commented she had noticed a similar (but not as strong) effect this time.

    The biggest frustration is figuring out what is causing it, though.
