It seems that many people are allergic to artificial vanilla flavoring, eugenols and natural butter flavoring. Here’s a list of man-made chemicals that are put into foods that people are allergic to. For me, the “natural butter flavoring” causes blood blisters to form under my tongue. It’s a real bummer.  So much  for Heath Bars, Orville Reddenbacher’s popcorn and Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream. Ahh. I miss those. . .
