I had a small snack serving of potato chips that are baked, but not greasy and a hot chocolate, instant, not the milk filled and cream kind. I kep wondering if instant hot chocolate with hot water with NO cream, milk or anything wierd in it would do much K damage. I am thinking, to be safe, to slam down the brakes for a couple days now. Should I?

Well, the chocolate could be just chocolate flavoured stuff or cacao. Cacao powder is very very high in K+

Not sure I understand what 'k' is referring to.  Vitamin K?  Is this a bad thing?

And I thought most all of the hot chocolate packets contained some form of powered milk.  I mean after all isn't most of these 'milk' chocolate?

I LOVE Chocolate.  And use a packet in my morning coffee when it is cold outside, most of the Winter.

I'll skip some calories elsewhere, somehow.  I hope.

"K" refers to potassium-- as in kalemia.

This is either gonna be scary or funny. IF it DID have K+, i should be in lovin' poo-poo now. I would have predicted that right from moment one had I foresaw what would happen this weekend.

I had a BAD "slip and fall" figuratively last night with a 1/2 of a fair size banana chocolate chip loaf, before I woke the hell up and realized what that suspicious taste had been. I fell on my ass hard.

I was figuratively sick when I realized what just happened. No, sick with fear.
