Now that celiac has become the vogue disease causing gluten-free hordes to make a nuisance of themselves by broadcasting rants on how special is their diet***, will chocolate soon be afflicted next?

If so, take heart.

An allergy to her husband's sperm was a 'game-changer' for one woman in their marriage.

Recent reports about newlyweds who, convinced they were the "right match", fell in love quickly, then turned out to be, how to put this tactfully, premature.

"I had this bizarre reaction," said the wife, who for understandable reasons wishes to remain anonymous. "I had burning & swelling & redness, which was very unusual. I thought I had contracted an STD."

Instead she contracted SPH (Seminal Plasma Hypersensitivity), an allergic reaction to the proteins in semen. Even using a condom didn't help; so the couple avoided intimacy.

"It pretty much dramatically reduced our libido… more like roommates," the husband admits. Ahh, yeah.

Women sleeping with men for the first time often break out in hives. They can experience abdominal swelling or a local reaction described by Dr. Jonathan Bernstein, an immunologist at the University of Cincinnati, as "a needle sticking into their vagina". Ouch, like female orgasm isn’t difficult enough.

He tested the couple & successfully desensitized them to the allergen. Did perhaps this Dr. Sperminator help this couple with the new staff of life -- chocolate -- as part of a rotation diet***?

Just more useful information brought to you by the C-spot®.

With no more excuses, here's a bite on Marou's latest.

*** as a former asthmatic once violently allergic to dairy that aggravated the condition (but no more), here's some priceless medical advice, free of charge, without any drugs or inhalers: try a rotation diet instead of eating the same damn staples each & everyday, whether the foodstuffs contain gluten or not, by turning the cupboard into a mini biodiversity lab stocked with teff, quinoa, amaranth, buckwheat, black & brown rice, barley, rye, scottish oats, spelt, faro, red corn,… might actually cure boredom too.
Appearance   4.4 / 5
Color: medium river brown with a drop of iron oxide
Surface: feast for the eyes
Temper: lamé
Snap: crack-a-toa
Aroma   8 / 10
subdued version of its 85% sib… very subdued
the burlap sacks in that bar's Flavor surface here as a heavy metal (cadmium) so those prone to picking up ink in their chocolate need to switch from a pen to a pencil (Lead No. 2 specifically)
Mouthfeel   12.5 / 15
Texture: chunky pudding
Melt: slow tempo
Flavor   44.8 / 50
batter rolls up into a chocolate chip biscuit (the mid-level roast prevents a cookie) -> faint longan attends a slight tingling sweet point (sichuan) -> sweet spice in the anise family moves toward galangal for some light banana-gingerbread -> cocoa mix -> pencil shavings at the very rear
Quality   16.1 / 20
Marou's comfort bar -- so streamline of near neurotic discipline.

Precious little in the way of transitions from one point to the other. It all starts & stays with itself pretty much from beginning to end with only minor modulations.

10% extra sugar really takes-up & absorbs the ragged jags of this bar's big brother 85%, as well as transmutes the spice quotients into such a level contour that the interrelationship between the 2 bars seemingly undergoes some genetic drift. Any further & they'd hardly resemble each other, though one absolutely foretells the gingerbread common to both.

INGREDIENTS: cocoa mass, sugar, cocoa butter
