    If any ones intrested i was in sainsburys today and noticed that they have a new ice cream range. i found there own branded ice cream lollies 2 boxes for £2. Although most of them the sugars were ridiculous i found one which look like a little slice of chocolate swiss role and a picture of a little monkey on the box. Each lolly was 8.2 carb and 5.5g sugar. i rushed home to try and test one and heres my findings (over the moon havent had ice cream for 3 yrs now :-( )

    before lolly 5.2

    45 mins after 6.2

    90 mins 5.4

    120 mins 4.9

    this is a better reading than the pear ive been having mid afternoon
    i dont go high after the pear but drop low very quick. this seems a better mid afternoon snack for myself. Just thought id share the ice cream thingy with you all incase you fancied it

    Think these are what were mentioned Sainsbury's Spiral Lollies Vanilla Chocolate x4 240ml

    Although higher in carbs Sainsbury's Mini Chocolate Indulgence 8x50ml are nice but only 12.1g carbs and are a more grown up ice cream (although not keen on the white chocolate ones)

    I tried to link to the products but it didn't work, so just go on the sainsburys online shopping site

    I went with mini milks in the end as you get more in a box and less carbs :lol:

    If she's going to be playing outside in the afternoon then she can get away with a skinny cow ice cream lolly

    Sainsburys mini feast lollies are to die for, especially the mint ones, and also 12g's of carbs.

    Walls Mini Milk's are quite low in carbs although the Lolly's are rather small, they come in different flavours and range from 4.6 - 5.2g of carbs.

    Don't do as I do! ie not the proper way to deal with a hypo.
    Yesterday afternoon I swam 500 m, tested at 3.6mmol/l, kept my pump off and ate a tiny little cornetto type icecream with 6.6g carbs, which took me nicely back to 4.2mmol.
    It's a long way to swim for a very small ice cream though :lol:
