Diabetic Ice Cream

God, this is annoying.

For years I have looking for a ‘diabetic ice cream’ – by that I mean an ice cream that was safe for Diabetics to eat.

Imagine my pleasure at finding an ice cream on sale in my local Morrisons store that proclaimed ‘Diabetic Ice Cream’, loud and proud on the packet top.

Excellent, I thought, finally a dessert that I can enjoy.

The diabetic ice cream was manufactured by a company called ‘Franks’ – new name on me, but what the hell, I thought, I’ll give it a try.

As I was putting the ice cream into my shopping cart, I thought ‘hmm, best check the kCals and carbs on the label.

What a shocker, this so-called diabetic ice cream had more calories and carbs per hundred grams than the non-diabetic ice cream next to it!!!

Obviously, I put it back on the shelf, but I am not leaving it there – I have sent an e-mail to the ice cream manufacturer asking for their explanation. If I get a reply, I will post it here. If the reply isn’t acceptable, I will notify the supermarkets accordingly.

Hi there, i’m a type 1 diabetic and ahve been for 10 years now and i’ve never found ice-cream for diabetics! However all diabetics products are meant to be bad for you, well thats what my Dietician tells me anyway, because they have small amounts of sugar they are packed with other things to make it sweeter which are bad for you.

Anyway hope the ice-cream company gets back to you and if so post it up so i can have a read.
Keep up the Blogg!
