Post Holiday Sale

Long lines at the grocery store today. All of the Christmas candy was half off and I love a bargain.
It was time to stock up my hypo stash, but I have to be very careful not to get anything too yummy.

I chose the tree Peeps and white tootsie rolls.

Both are loaded with high fructose corn syrup, which works like magic for me. There was also a lot of chocolate on sale, but, as a dialysis patient, it is off limits due to the high phosphorous content.

I put everything in jars, with the number of units to take per treatment - 2 Peeps, or 3 Tootsie Rolls. Looks like I'm all set (for the next month, or two). Be gone, glucose tabs (or at least be banned to the back closet shelf.)

Tree peeps - umm, no thanks.
But white Tootsie Rolls - haven't seen those.
Today I was munching Skittles while waiting for my PCP...

I am with Colleen - I would pass on the tree peeps. I haven't seen the white Tootsie rolls before and those would have been in my cart had I seen them.

Great idea! I'm a diabetic also. This looks like a great way to manage low blood sugars, instead of stuffing your face!
