Chocolate vs. Coca-Cola

The other night Sweetie asked me a question, "Would you rather be allergic to Coke instead of Chocolate?"

I really had a hard time answering that question since I can't live with either (though I don't have a choice with chocolates now since I'm already allergic to it). Anyway, assuming I was not allergic to chocolates, would I rather be allergic to Coke?

Difficult question...

Hmm... hmm... hmm...

The other day I found myself looking for something to eat at SM Makati and most of the pastries I used to eat had chocolate in it. I usually also buy some brownies, donuts and some good old Cloud 9 for Miguel and I whenever I pass by a mall. And then I remembered feeling sick after drinking a glass of Chocolait a few weeks ago. 

Being allergic to chocolate is for me a punishment.

And I think not being able to chug down Coke would be of equal torture.

But since chocolate is available in many different forms, I think I'd rather be allergic to Coke than chocolate.

What about you?


  1. I can go without either for life. :) But that's me. Now ice cream hmmmm....

  2. @jaydj kaya mo walang Reese's???

  3. I used to be addicted to Coke so if you asked me that question a year and a half ago, I would've said I couldn't live without it. Now I know I can. And I can go without chocolate too. Now, about potato chips...hmmn

  4. I'd rather be addicted to Coke. Nako-constipate ako with Coke :D Chocolate I can't live without! Na-depress ako sobra when the doc told me chocolate can trigger asthma. Alam mo bang nagsisimula na ko mag-swimming and brisk walking dahil dyan so I can once again eat as much as chocolate as I could? :D hehehehehe

  5. Ay mali hahahha "I'd rather be ALLERGIC to Coke" I mean :D

  6. @em_dy I used to be addicted to potato chips too! Arggghhh... life

    @gail That's what I learned the hard way. For some strange reason I have asthma now and any of the food I'm allergic to easily activates it. Kainis. So swimming and brisk walking can strengthen my lungs and I can eat chocolate? I shall do that too!

  8. i'd rather be allergic to coke

    chocolate is my life period.

  9. kawawa ka naman pala. i'm allergic to neither but if i have to choose, pareho tayo i'd rather choose coke kasi madali syang makita. yong chocolate is everywhere mahirap i-dissect ang pagkain te remove the chocolate. have a good day!

  11. I'd rather be allergic to coke.
    Choco, no,no,no...esp Reese's..LOL
    love,love,love anything chocolate :)

  12. Hi!
    I love chocolate so I don't mind alergic to coke.
    See you around.

  13. I'm able to live without coke for a longer period of time (say, 2 weeks). There are other substitutes like iced tea, pineapple juice and other refreshing beverages. But chocolate? It's out of the question.

    OT: It would be nice if you would allow anonymous users to comment on your blogger. I wrote a short write-up about it last year:

  14. @randell I'm sorry but it's my choice not to have anonymous comments in my blog. I'd like to avoid publishing non-sense comments from SEOs.

  15. Hmmm.. Couldn't you just add a captcha in the comment form? You still moderate comments anyway, right?
