This is Dr. Christian. I'd like to help. Are you sure she only ate one kiss? How is she acting now? Does she have any medical conditions or take any medications?

Thank you for the information. She should be fine. One chocolate kiss is highly unlikely to cause any problems and she would have shown symptoms by now. The foil should pass through her system without any problems but she may have a little loose stool in the next day or so. Watch for vomiting and diarrhea and if that occurs then have her seen. If you have more questions please reply back.
