But hang on a minute, where does soup fit into all of this…..?

I should think many diabetics use lucozade as it isst acting, also it was always on the bedside table as a pick me up to gain energy after illness. Lucozade have shot themselves in the foot by producing lucozade sport which is aimed at athletes ect. people like my husband are the ones hard done by as they use it for health purposes.
