    I would eat the. All the time, I went GF, so its been approx 6mos since I last had them. I ate a grab bag of the reg, & within 1 hour I broke out head to toe with a Sunburn type of rash, & headache, & sick to my stomach, & both ears throbbing. Had to take two Benadryl, which took about 1- 1/2 to take affect. Not allergic to nothing else, so idk what I’m allergic to in them, but its pretty scary not knowing.
