TYLER — A growing number of people are developing allergies to chocolate, but it might not be the cocoa, that's making them sick.
Analysts say, allergic reactions are being triggered by ground up cockroach parts.
There are reportedly an average of eight insect parts in a single bar of chocolate.
Even more disturbing than that, anything less the 60 insect pieces per bar is deemed "safe" for consumption by the Food and Drug Administration.
