Smarties Rock!!!

Photobucket

I read somewhere (it was another D-blogger but can't remember who!!) that Smarties were made with Dextrose... same as glucose tablets. However Smarties are much YUMMIER AND CHEAPER! We have been using Smarties for weeks now as a reward for Gabe going potty. (Ha... maybe I should clarify... he gets one smartie, not one roll!) So yesterday we went hiking at a really cool park here in town. I looked at my Dexcom and sure enough I was on a downward trend.
2 rolls of smarties = 50 calories and 13g carbs and a happy Windy who doesn't have to have her family time interrupted by "D".

My sugar went back into range wicked fast! I'm hooked on Smarties for my hypo's now. My dentist might not like this though...

We keep a huge bag of Smarties around. I like to have them in the car, too, because Smarties don't melt in the heat!

Smarties are awesome. That's going to be Jeremy's potty treat since they aren't chocolate . . . which he seems to be addicted to!

I'm using the Smarties for my lows now, too. I'm having just a little trouble stopping with two rolls, though. They're just so yummy!

I like how they hold up. So I've a few bags of these stashed in various places. Much better than Dex tablets.
