{Guess the Carbs} Apple Croissant

by Leighann on September 23, 2011

Q and I headed to the local Farmer’s Market one Saturday morning before her dance class. We headed straight to the back row where the waffle truck (yes, our town has a mobile waffle truck!) was located. The line was long. Too long. When we left the house her BG was 117 which was fine, but I feared a long wait for a waffle might send her low. I contemplated for all of two seconds using the D-card to butt in line, but instead we went to one of our other favorite local vendors for a fresh baked croissant.

Q chose the apple filled croissant. They were so flaky and buttery and delicious. They were even still warm.

But I had absolutely no idea how many carbs to count it as. We often buy the plain butter croissants from them and use them for sandwiches. I count those as 35 carbs (they are about 2 3/4 oz). But we’ve never gotten them filled with ooey, gooey apples.

I guessed.

I guessed it at 40 carbs knowing that (a) it might have even been 50, and (b) that she was going to dance class in a little while and I would check her BG before and if it was a little high from the croissant then I would just forgo her pre-dance class snack.

So how many carbs would you count this apple croissant as?

Before reading I would have guessed around 40 as well 🙂

I would have gone 40 or 50 also. Yay moms for figuring out carbs!

Yep 35 to 45 depending on how much gooey stuff was in it and on it! 🙂

I would have guessed 45-50 carbs, guessing maybe the apples had some sugar added to them. So inquiring minds want to know, how was her BG after eating it?
