That’s right, March 23rd is American Diabetes Alert Day. I know, how could you miss a celebration like this?! Well don’t worry, our favorite food chains have picked up the slack and offered promotions for such an occasion.
First, the fine folks at Starbucks started the morning with a free pastry with any beverage purchase. You could have any delectable treat from their sweets case free until 10:30 this morning. I’m sure a combo of a chocolate chip muffin and dark cherry chocolate mocha would keep insulin levels in an acceptable range.
Since your morning sugar buzz probably subsided, Ben & Jerry’s would be happy to step in for their free cone day! There is one No Sugar Added flavor (Vanilla Fudge Chip) for the diabetic! I love me some Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, but I’m not sure if the hours I would spend in line are worth the price of a single-scoop cone. If your time is, however, you have till 8 p.m. tonight.
There you have it. The irony of American nutrition. Now I feel like singing Sugar High.
