I have a lot of stevia-sweetened chocolate.
Unfortunately, it also has erythritol in it. I had never read the fine print closely enough to notice. It’s simply advertised as stevia-sweetened, and I am a lazy trusting fool.
I’ve never been comfortable with erythritol, and after Witkowski’s article in Nature Medicine, I have shifted from uncomfortable to scared sh*tless.
So, what do I do with it?
I’m certainly not going to eat it.
And letting chocolate go to waste is a cardinal sin, for chocolate is the sacrament that purifies us from all of our sins (starting with gluttony.)
I don’t feel comfortable casually poisoning friends.
But maybe I should feel fine about giving it to those friends who are continuing to buy it despite the known risks (?)
I have a case of hazardous, potentially deadly chocolate. I think you continue to buy and eat it. Can I either talk you out of ever having it again or, failing that unload my stash on you?
Sincerely (but worried about ending up in the netherworlds for all eternity if I give the chocolate to you),
In case they all suddenly become sensible, do you want to be my new friend?
