Thank you for your question about this situation. What type of chocolate did he eat? Milk? Dark? Are you sure the max is 2 oz?

Can we talk

Were these pure milk and dark chocolate candies? Were they nougette or cream filled? 2 oz of all dark chocolate falls in the range of vomiting and diarrhea. 2 oz of milk chocolate doesn't fall into that category. The more milk chocolate the 2 oz had, the less chance of causing the vomiting and diarrhea. Chocolate causes an increase in thirst
