  • White chocolate

    Does anyone have a suggestion for a brand of white chocolate? Every kind I’ve come across has soy lecithin in it, even the organic/natural kinds.

    Allergies (Claritin)
    Anemia (iron supplement)
    Asthma (albuterol inhaler)
    Bilateral hearing loss (hearing aids)
    Chronic migraines (amitryptiline, midrin, special diet)
    Chronic rhinitis and sinusitis
    Endometriosis – stage IV (lapex surgery done by specialist 3/07; now pain- and symptom-free!)
    Other treatments tried: surgery, 13 birth controls, Lupron (poison! ), and Depot Provera (the worst thing my body’s ever gone through! )
    Interstitial Cystitis (Elmiron, Tramadol, Darvocet, IC diet)
    Knee problems (ballet-related injury – no diagnosis 10 years later)
    Scoliosis (>10 years of chiropractic treatment – none currently)
    Seizure (4/03)
    Surgeries: 6/95 – maxillo-facial surgery to realign jaw; currently have 8 screws in jaw
    2/06 – laparoscopy with excision of endometriosis and ovarian cyst, appendectomy, hysteroscopy, D&C, removal of uterine polyp
    3/07 – laparoscopy with excision of endometriosis, hysteroscopy, cystoscopy, hydrodistention, insertion of stent in ureter

      I'm not sure but I love the white chocolate Kit Kats, only I can't seem to find them anymore, is anyone else having trouble finding them to?


      I'm 47 years old, married 27 years. I have two wonderful boys and two wonderful grandchildren. I was diagnosed in 1994. Life has certainly thrown me many many surprises, all of which I'm trying to stay positive and hopeful, and I try to think about my blessings not my misfortunes, when possible. Stay Strong!

        white chocolate


        I'm fine with Lindt white chocloate bars, Lindt Excellence white choclate bars (they have real vanilla), and Lindt white chocloate and almond bars. Also I can eat/use in recipes Chipits white chocolate chips.

          Yeah--I haven't been able to find a kit-kat (white) either. I just thought the grocery store was out when I looked. Guess not.

            I do okay with the white reeses, kitkat, twix or crunch bars. Seems they're making everything in white chocolate now. I think that some of the white chocolate candies, like the kitkats, were just a promotional thing. I'll check tomorrow (I work in a grocery store) and see if that's the case to the missing kitkats! Also, have you tried the hershey's cookies and creme bars? they only have a tiny percent of chocolate in them.

              The white chocolate kit kats do have soy lecithin in them, but my bladder does not react to that (just plain soy--allergy). I get them at Walgreens, Longs Drugs, sometimes Albertson's.

                  The organic Green and Black's white chocolate bars at whole foods are the best for my symptoms. They are a bit pricey--but, I don't mind splurging when I'm going through a bad patch, want something with chocolate, and don't want to gamble in any way.

                  Hope you find lots of good options that work for you!
                  Best wishes, little bear

                    I think white chocolate pretty much has to have soy lecithin in it. Too much soy is one of my few food triggers, but soy lecithin doesn't bother me.
