That Must Have Been Some Kiss

Unfortunately, unlike Snow White, it didn't bring her back from the dead. Quite the opposite.
A Quebec teenager with a peanut allergy has died after kissing her boyfriend who had eaten a peanut butter sandwich hours earlier.

Fifteen-year-old Christina Desforges died Monday. She went into anaphylactic shock and in spite of being given an adrenalin shot, could not be revived.... The official cause of the teen's death has not yet been released.

Pediatric allergist Karen Sigman told CTV's Tania Krywiak if peanuts are still on the tongue or the lips, they can still cause a reaction.
I knew a guy who spent his wedding night in an emergency room because there were crushed peanuts in one of the cookies at the wedding reception.

My prayers go out to her family. And to her boyfriend, who has to be suffering a lot of guilt right now.
