    And don't wine, because you won't be allowed to have cheese either!

    This bill was passed in March and took effect at the beginning of this month.

    So how does this mean no chocolate? Scroll down to number 66 in the list. Tyramines. I'm pretty familiar with this since I try to avoid them for the sake of avoiding migraines. Chocolate and cheese are both manufactured (it naturally occurs in some of my favorite foods, grrr, like avocados!) and the bill specifically says these chemicals cannot be present in anything but medications.

    Though...looking through it in its final form, it appears they raised the acceptable limit. I don't know how much is in chocolate or cheese. Maybe they amended the bill to fix that (hopefully) unintended and might I mention HORRIBLE consequence?!
