    Chocolate is known to trigger GERD. Ice cream tends to depend on the individual, but certainly can. Hope you feel better soon!

    I have noticed that when I OVEREAT ANYTHING the GERD is bad. I am overweight and have a hernia though.

    The dark chocolate can most definitely cause discomfort. Since you are on a special trip and want to try different things, I would just chew some antacids like Tums before and after so that the discomfort is minimal. Of course you need to make sure that taking antacids doesn't interfere with any other medications you are using.

    Enjoy your vacation!
