Ask Mr. Owl

Mr. Owl, how many carbs does it take to get to the Tootsie Roll center of a Tootsie Pop?






Plus 12. 

The correct answer here is 15 grams, at least according to CalorieKing.com

My pre-diagnosis favorite flavor was always grape, but these days, if I indulge in one, I go for orange or cherry.  And hey...15 grams of carbs is just the right amount to treat a low, right?  Too bad you can't eat a lollipop terribly fast.

This concludes today's very short and silly post.


  1. Cherry Tootsie Pops are amazing. I'm just sayin'.

    Loved this post.

  2. Let's find out ... one, two three ... the correct answer is three!! I hated having tootsie pops get stuck in my teeth, so they weren't my favorites, but what did I know???!

  3. Contrary to what my D dictated as "allowable" during my high school years, Blow Pops were a favorite of mine and I enjoyed WAY TOO MANY of these regularly. Same with Tootsie Roll pops, which simply rock and came across my world quite regularly. Of course, that was before the pumping days and better control times. Now, good way to treat lows indeed!
