Re: [IP] Halloween candy



I'm not really sure where this conversation is at but I saw skittles as one
of the candies being eaten.  I actually use skittles to treat my hypo's.
They aren't in the stores all the time but around halloween, christmas and
easter they have those bags of skittles which contain individually wrapped
bags of skittles.  It seems to be just the right amount to treat my
ypo's.  - and it does it quickly because it is STRAIGHT sugar.  I know I
can't eat chocolate because the chocolate contains fat.  This takes a while
to digest -  could this be why you are having the weird bg's.

Hope this helps!

Eric
