A Bad Reaction To Bassetts Liquorice Allsorts
I love Liquorice Allsorts but l havenít eaten any for a long time. Yesterday, a friend gave me a box of them and l ate some this morning. Next thing, l got the zig zags (Aura) and an awful migraine headache. I took painkillers and had to go to bed as it was so bad. I also became wheezy in my chest.
I looked at the ingredients on the box and was surprised to read that they contain sulphites, a preservative. I canít understand why manufacturers have to fill sweets with chemicals. I donít think they did years ago?
I knew eating too much Liquorice can affect your heart but l was surprised to read, it can lower your potassium levels if you take diuretics.
They were also very sickly sweet, so I wonít be eating them again.
Have you ever had a reaction after eating liquorice products or any other confectionary?
