I agree with grandmastouch. I am 73 years old and two weeks ago I found out I have diabetes. I am going crazy trying to figure out what I can and can not eat, however I do know that this site is not for diabetics only. I also know that I can have a little candy now and then(a nurse even told me that). If you can't eat this sort of recipe then don't make it but don't complain that it isn't diabetic friendly. If you have had diabetes for awhile you should know what you can and cannot eat but don't begrudge the people who can eat this. It sounds delicious and I plan on making it and yes even eating a little of it. OMG do you think I might die if I try one or even two or three? Come on people either rate the recipe or don't bother saying a word. Thanks for listening.
I had A friend make some with Strawberry and lemon filled they were the best.
Wow, this has become a debate over diabetic eating habits, rather than a review of the recipe. Goodness people, give it a rest... the label is probably an error. If you are diabetic, don't make it or eat it. If you are not, it is a fun and tasty recipe. Sheesh.
oops it does say diabetic friendly, but I still stand by what I had to say. HAPPY EASTER
I don't understand what is wrong with everyone. IT DOES NOT SAY DIABETIC FRIENDLY. Even diabetics can have something once in a while that is not "good" for them. A tiny taste once in a while is fine, otherwise they may as well be dead. My entire family has diabetes and a bit here and there does not hurt. Get a life all you complainers.
