    And when I started it was 5.5p a litre, or about 4s 11d a gallon. All I can remember of treats in those days were ice creams sundaes in the school tuck shop.

    This is what I don't understand. It is torture, but the OP is waiting for a diagnosis of maybe type 2 now or maybe still prediabetic. I really hope for her sake that she is still pre diabetic because it's so much easier than being type 2. But why are we being asked to taunt her with things she soon might not be able to have often? I find that rather distasteful, excuse the pun. I must admit I wish I was back there in my pre-diabetic days, oh well, that's life.

    Do they still make walnut whips. Don't think I've seen one for decades! Maybe that's why you haven't had one for 30 yrs RRB???

    They still make them but they are tiny compared to what we used to buy.

    I miss bread and butter pudding with plenty of dried fruit and spices served with a big dollop of cream.

    Yep. You can still get them. I don't think they are as good now. Nestle have got them and gone cheap with the chocolate casing and no nut in the bottom. Just my opinion, still nice...from what I remember..

    In all honesty I can not remember what I liked before diagnoses as I was only 4 1/2 when diagnosed and almost 54 now :) Favourite treat though is frozen raspberries with a splodge of cream on top.

    It is a pain in the bottom not being able to eat what you want or what you really like, but it's just one of those things. I assist a man with sight problems with his food shopping every week. We go to the bakery section in Sainsbury's and looking at and smelling the lovely bread types, well the assistants walk behind us with a mop and bucker because of the drooling :oops:I feel it all the time like many others, but it's not killing me by talking about it, or looking at it, I have had many nice memories of past foods also associated with family and friends as well .
    Also if a member finds the thread so distressing, then it's best not to post or read it and focus on another section that appeals to that member more:) I have enjoyed participating on this thread with other members and their memories :D

    RRB,

    I used to make this and bread pudding too. I made bread pudding two weeks ago ( my teenager loves this) for some family and friends. And not one sultana passed my lips :meh:

    I like to have a little (and sometimes not so little) amount of liquorice and turkish delight. However I must admit also bags of peanuts.

    At the moment I have some blueberry liquorice so that must be ok as it is berries ;)

    Thinking about this question I'd have to say no. I was 10 when I was diagnosed with diabetes and what I really enjoyed before being diagnosed was playing with ActionMan toys. I've completely given that up since diagnosis...

    Also, not wanting to be a pedant (said Dillinger being a pedant) but if you've given up something then you can't indulge in it as you've given it up surely?

    Anyway, I got rained on, I've got too much work to do, I had a flu-jab yesterday and my arm feels like Mike Tyson has been punching it through the night and I've got a cough so I might very well go and play with an ActionMan if I get the chance.

    :(

    Best

    In a word, no. Having got my blood sugars under control and enjoying the foods I now eat why would I want to do that? I have fond memories of eating things I wouldn't now go near but I'm now in a new lifestyle.
