Last week, I brought up my skepticism on the 7-Eleven “Sugar-free” Slurpee.

Given the heat-wave that’s taking residence in the northeast, I decided to cool off and put it to the test.  I grabbed a cup (which appears to be 20 ounces) and bolused for 15 carbs.  (6 carbs for 8 ounces, so 6 times two and a half, carry the one, yup… 15.)
