    I'm lactose intolerant. I still drink milky drinks but I know my limit and how they affect me. If I push it I end up paying for it within the hour. I found lite milk is easier on my stomach. If I have full cream I end up with really bad stomach ache and more on way less. Even using a tiny bit of milk in instant coffee affects me whereas I can have a whole cup of latte coffee if it is lite or fat free.

    I can also taste mushroom in pretty much anything. Can't do it. Or asparagus.

    I have experimented on DP a few times. But the best was with my brother. He was about 12. If anyone remembers the alcoholic "stingers", they were alcoholic soda with a flavoured test tube that was dropped in the bottle. I filled an empty stinger bottle with lemonade and filled a test tube with berocca and "snuck" him a drink. Shh don't tell mum. He ran off and drank it in 10 seconds flat. Within 10 minutes he was "drunk". I was a cool sister and he thought he was drinking alcohol. My mum was in on the joke and we eventually told him years later.

    The last time a 'friend' experimented on my allergy, I ended up in cardiac arrest at hospital.

    I think messing around with people who have allergies (or claim to) is a bad idea... but people who just like to whinge? Go ahead.

    He was slurring his words, couldn't walk straight, showing signs of being drunk. But we know the only "alcohol" he drank was what I gave him. Why sneak it when I was giving it to him. He was bragging to a few people that I gave him alcohol too. I know a few heavy drinkers and one in particular drank 2 bottles of wine with such low alcohol content approx 2%, he got obliterated on it. I have seen him drink at least half a carton beer, and half bottle spirits other times, that only got him tipsy.

    Dd1 doesn't like wedges but loves chunky chips (potatoes cut into quarters and baked).

    This would tick me off, equal is full of chemicals and I refuse to use it.

    I have come across some where it is actually real chocolate. They do state not to exceed a certain amount though cause it can be harmful. The majority are carob these days though.
