Smarties Candy Rolls - USA VALUE!
Today I set out to find Smarties.
Should you search this topic here there are other threads.
I was looking to have improved Porphoric Regimen supplies on hand as suggest so often in the posts.
I went to the local independent drugstore. Glucose tablet packaged for Diabetics in a small plastic tube, yes very handy and protable. 10 tablets/ each tablet 15 calories/4gms Glucose price 1.99 US. that is 0.20 cents each.
At Walmart same number of tablets in this standard formulation 1.28/10 tablets/Not much improvement .12cents each better but still.. In in bulk packing 50 tablet/4.78 US that is .09 cents each.
Now for the cost comparison of the Made in USA CE DE CANDY , Inc., Union NJ 07083
smartie costing analysis: each "penny" roll Dextrose based packet( superior as it is used as an IV source of energy) is 25 calories/6gm Glocose price 1.86 for 60 rolls each roll approx two of the glucose tablets. 120 doses divided by 1.86 equals 0.0155 cents per dose.
Many thanks Jim K for your pertenent post!
