Swollen cheeks after eating?

Over the past few months, I have developed this problem. The inside of my cheeks (mostly my right, only slightly on the left side) swell up to the point where I can hardly close my jaw. I have noticed that this usually happens whenever I eat a deli wrap, or sometimes with various fresh fruits/vegetables. I don't think it can be an allergic reaction, since these are all foods that I have been eating for years. There is no pain, only extreme swelling of the cheeks, which is very distracting to me and slightly uncomfortable. Does anyone have any ideas what may be causing this, or solutions to stop it?
