I have a post up on OmniPod’s Suite D blog this week called Tricks for Treating Your Child with Diabetes with a few of my tips for Halloween.
Q and I had lunch at Panera this week as we left town to go to the endocrinologist. She wanted a pumpkin cookie, but I said no. The cashier of course mentioned that you could add a pastry to your meal of only 99 cents, (hook, line, and sinker) I gave in an got one. I told Q that we would eat it later in the day. Ironically, when we returned home late in the evening I realized that we never actually ate it.
So how many carbs do you think a Jack O’Lantern from Panera is?
(Last photo for size perspective.)
Q guessed 25.
I guessed 60.
I looked it up on their website.
Sixty-three carbs for a Panera Jack O’Lantern cookie.
Q was impressed with how close I was.
Bolus-worthy? Not sure because we didn’t eat it.
But you could have a birthday cupcake, decent scoop of ice cream, and a small cup of punch for about that number of carbs (my standard birthday party carb guess: 30, 15, 15, respectively).
Here are some other “fast food” cookies for comparison:
Jimmy John’s Raisin Oatmeal Cookie: 65 carbs
Jimmy John’s Chocolate Chunk Cookie: 65 carbs
Subway Oatmeal Raisin Cookie: 30 carbs (these are smaller)
Subway Chocolate Chunk Cookie: 30 carbs (these are smaller)
Panera Jack O’Lantern Cookie: 63 carbs
Panera Oatmeal Raisin: 62 carbs
Panera Chocolate Chipper: 59 carbs
