    I think you will be safe there, easter stock has probably already been produced, likely switched over to halloween or even Christmas candy by now.

    I attended a diabetic clinic which was a classroom affair that lasted a week. We were taught that it's ok to drink Chardonnay white wine. Doctor already told me to quit beer and whiskey. Tried red wine and sugar shot up. The white Chardonnay doesn't affect my sugar at all, which is hard to believe. I drink a lot of it. Yesterday morning when I got out of bed, my sugar was 94. That night just before dark and after several glasses of white wine, my sugar was 114.
    Doctor said older people should aim for 130 which is what the latest studies show.

    The box has a bladder inside that holds the amount that would be in 4 bottles. Has a spigot so you can fill your glass right from the box. Cost is $14.00 per box.

    i drink some wine once in a blue moon, in fact the same as you do, i just checked the bottle.

    the ADA did say ( a long time ago), that we can have candy but like one of those 'bite sized" types.

    i just watch what i eat.


    sometimes i wake up during the night, and my sugar level is like below 50, i know that, cuz i wake up sweating, check the blood sugar level, then take one of those glucose tablets.

    many times, i'll wake up with a level of 90 to 126......

    I remember when boxed wine was only for cooking.
    That said....... Working in a restaurant for 6 years; during that time - boxed wine was versatile.

    An investigation to determine the official cause of the fire will be conducted, officials said.

    "In the initial incident report from Berks County to PEMA, a reference to a gas leak was included. It is really important to note that incident reports from counties are a snapshot in time of the understanding of the incident at the time the report was made," Ruth A. Miller, PEMA's communications director, said in a statement.

    The explosion occurred around 4:57 p.m. at the RM Palmer Company in West Reading, located about 60 miles northwest of Philadelphia.

    2 dead, 5 missing after explosion at chocolate factory


    --------------------------------------------------------

    seems plausible, a gas leak, as i ain't ever heard of chocolate bunnies exploding....
