Scott’s Old School Low Treatment

I spent Saturday helping to clean out dad’s garage. We found an old tackle box with some low BG supplies inside. :-)

These don’t have dates on them, but they are at least twenty-five years old. At least.

Fruit Roll-Ups

Fruit Roll-Ups

Back in the day we didn’t have glucose tabs. In fact, I remember baggies of sugar cubes and tubes of cake frosting being the go-to tools of camp counselors. Pocketable? Not really.

For as long as I can remember, I’d have two Fruit Roll-Ups in my back pocket at all times. Flattened to death before long, but still worth 12g of carbs.

Peel from cellophane before eating, yo.

If I’d let my kid read this post, she’d be begging for icing in a tube for lows!! I’m tired of crushed cheese & crackers in a backpack. A used Crystal Lite tube holds two, but they never stay in there for long. I just had her handwash her backpack last week due to a long forgotten crushed Juicy Juice, and melted, mashed Starburst mucking everything up. Taught her a lesson. Can’t imagine sugar cubes in tin foil. But I do have memories of my own Fruit Roll Ups in my HS backpack in 1984!

Crushed Juicy Juice and melted/mashed Starburst?! Oh my gosh, Sharon! That sounds like a disaster! LOL!! :-)

My bus drivers always had a tube of frosting in their first aid boxes!

Wow!

I don’t think I ever tried – but I wonder if frosting freezes? And if so, would it even come out? And how long would it take to thaw? …

The things I think about living in Minnesota…

I remember that brand!! They were almost sort of natural fruit roll ups, right? More bumpy than the newer plastic-y ones. Benny loves fruit roll-ups, but I think they would melt in our summer heat (although if they lasted that long in your garage…)

Dunno about the natural thing – if that was even an option way back then. But I think you’re onto something about if these lasted so long in the garage they could probably withstand summer heat on the surface of the sun! Haha!
