Why do I have a sneezing fit shortly after eating sugary and fatty foods?

I'm an overweight, nearly-thirty-year-old man and for the past several years (at least) I find that I have a sneezing fit (5-10 intense sneezes in fairly rapid succession) shortly after eating sugary and/or fatty foods.
For example I just ate a small piece of chocolate cake with chocolate frosting and whipped cream. A couple of minutes later I had one of these sneezing fits. I seem to remember the same happening after fatty foods, but am not 100% sure.

Other than the weight thing I'm healthy and take no medications. My last physical (a year ago) showed excellent cholesterol and blood sugar levels.
The Google found me this questionnaire
and the last question implies that there's some reason, but I wasn't able to find anything more concrete.
