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 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?
