    Awe, poor thing. She hardly ever dislikes anything. I am glad she dislikes it, that's not a good product if it causes health issues that can kill you. I grew up in an addict family and I am very lucky I don't have the condition myself. It passed me and my brother got it instead. Both my mom and dad suffered from it. Only a few of my family members don't suffer from addictions. I send my love to you both. Be blessed. Your lady is very sweet by the way. Thank you for sharing your foodie life. I enjoy it very much. Peace be with you both. From the USA.
