    While there is no published research that associates chocolate as a causal factor for frequency of urine, there is anecdotal evidence (stories) from consumers that foods with a high sugar content can trigger frequency.  It's also possible you may be a borderline diabetic, because frequency is an early warning sign of type 2 diabetes since the body is insulin-resistant and the kidneys go into overdrive trying to rid the body of excess sugars.  So if sugars in general plague you, you might have a fasting urine test for the blood sugar levels you are experiencing.

    Nick,

     

    you will find chocolate on the lists of foods that can irritate the bladder and increase urge or frequency of urination.  Chocolate is considered an acidic food along with many others that are more likely to cause this sensation.
