How come when some people eat chocolate they get really hyper?

I gave my friend less then half a candy bar and he went crazy cause he was so hyper. But when I eat that much I stay normal...

Chocolate contains theobromine or theophylline, breakdown products of caffeine. These are alkaloids which plants most likely evolved from the ones who had alkaloids that poisoned animals. Chocolate kills dogs by raising their heart rate until it misfires. But canids don't eat many plants (except coyotes, who do well with certain ones), and primates (us) have for milliions of years. So we evolved to handle caffeine. Coffee is from Africa, chocolate from CentroAmerica. Europeans grabbed on to these whoopie drugs - Voltaire wrote its praises, and over 80% of the world uses it
I get crazy from chocolate (makes me think I'm witty - just like Voltaire thought), and if I eat it in the afternoon, I don't sleep until morning.
It's not the sugar.

Some people react to te caffeine more or in your case sugar. It depends on the person. Alot of people don't relies it but they will have a sugar rush and not even know. You mat have had a sugar rush or was hyper, you just didn't know.
