[IP] For all of you who hate glucose tabs as much as i do!

so, i hate the chalky aspect of glucose tabs, and while shopping at REI i
discovered the perfect substitute.  created as sugar rations for some of
the first everest expeditions, "kendall mint cakes" are sucrose, glucose
syrup and pepermint oil.  not at all unpleasant to eat (though VERY
sweet!) one small rectangle off of a giant bar has about 12g of carb.  i'm
sending them a letter to suggest that they could create something rather
like glucose tabs to be marketed as such, but certainly they are my new
favorite "low fixer".  in general they are available at outdoors/adventure
shops which cater to hikers and the like.

a happy, minty,
