I agree that the only thing I've found that 100% of the time will "trigger" a CH within an hour is alcohol in any form.

But, I would believe it's possible that some of the foods listed, like chocolate or popcorn, might make the next CH that comes "worse", i.e., more painful.

During this current cluster, as I thought things were ending, and my CH's were getting "milder", I ate quite a bit of chocolate one day and the next day got a really nasty CH.

Again, this may be coincidence, but I could believe some foods may "worsen" the pain of subsequent headaches...
