Is all chocolate considered dairy?

soma, i don't mean to be alarmist about it. if it's a reputable brand, you might be ok. you should research the brand and known bad ones.

jpb, that's a good point. milk chocolate is dairy, but maybe not darker chocolate, or in really dark the dairy might be negligible.

Cancun airport has a very good reputation, I highly doubt it would sell unsafe chocolate!
