Maybe you're allergic to it. The caffeine in it could also stimulate the colon. Chocolate gives me a bad stomach ache.

Re: why does eating chocolate give me explosive diaorhea

Dear Sammi2, thank-you for replying-interesting about the caffeine- I drink lots of tea, and that has caffeine and I have no problem may be its more concentrated in chocolate- my stomach is often gurgling and noisy, so maybe it is the colon . Thank-you very much for taking the timeBest wishes, Ann

Re: why does eating chocolate give me explosive diaorhea

Probably a combination of the caffeine and another/the rest of the ingredients.

I don't generally have problems with chocolate or sodas. But often when I have ICED tea (not hot tea - that's fine, too), it "goes right through me" - or at least the next time in the next few hours I get the cramping and then diarrhea!

I still love the iced tea though. As long as I know it's just that and not another addition to my chronic GI problems!

It does to me too. Especially chocolate ice cream. I dunno why, maybe a combination of the milk, sugars and caffinee. I had some chocolate ice cream last night and it REALLY cleaned me out. Woosh. Heh
