I got a new waffle iron. The old one met an unfortunate demise after 25 years.
So I wanted to condition the new iron, and then make some waffles to eat.
The box has the directions. Add 1 1/2 cups of mix.
And then to make a waffle, you add 2/3 cups of batter…
And then a serving size is 1/3 cup of mix, and 1/2 a 7" waffle…
So 1/2 a waffle is made up of a 1/3 cup of batter, and a serving size is supposedly 1/3 cup of mix. 1 1/2 cups of mix makes about 2 1/2 waffles, which is allegedly equal to 5 servings (I have no idea on what planet half a waffle is a serving. ). And each serving of 1/2 a waffle has 30 grams…
I guess they are saying “mix” instead of “batter” on the nutrition label.
This is exactly why I don’t use a bolus calculator or enter carbs on my pump!
I ended up eating 2 waffles, the first with sugar syrup and the second with sugar-free syrup. Just kinda looked at it and decided on an amount of insulin. Deciphering the carb math on the box of waffle mix wasn’t something I was going to do when there were a few waffles ready to be eaten!
But the waffles were phenomenal, which is all that mattered.
