A JUICY SUGAR BOLUS!!!!!

**THIS GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED**

Are you ready for a Sugar Bolus that is sure to raise your BG's??? If so, I have exciting news for you...

A couple months ago I wrote a late night, out of my mind cuz I'm tired, "Dear Juicy Juice" letter. You can click on the link to refresh your memory, but the overall signification of the letter is how much many of us D Mama's use Juicy Juice as our go to box of juicy blood glucose raising goodness when our super sweet kiddos are at their lowest.

I didn't know it as I plugged away at my keyboard in the early hours of that sleepless A.M., but that post has become my most viewed/shared post EVER. Bra-less bat spinning is a close 2nd though :)

To celebrate my most popular post ever... this weeks Sugar Bolus is
ALL.ABOUT.THE.JUICE.BABY!!!

I contacted Juicy Juice and told them about all the reasons why we love the JJ. And guess what!!!! They are offering up a generous supply of our favorite 15 carb boxes. EXCITED MUCH??? I AM! Wait... is it wrong to enter my own Sugar Bolus??

Here's what you get... 
Five 8-packs of Juicy Juice (4.23oz boxes) shipped right to your door. You choose the flavor. PLUS... three additional Juicy Juice coupons for when your JJ stash is getting low.    

That's 40 boxes of night time sucking to raise your bg while you sleep action baby!!! HOLLA!

Just in case your not sure where to keep 40 boxes of JJ... I have a few ideas for you.

In the center console...

In the glove box...

In your pocket when you go outside... definate risk factor here!

In your back pack...

On the shelf by your bed...

In various spots in your outside refrigerator...
On the shelf in your inside refrigerator...


 In the mixer?!?! Doesn't everyone keep it there?? 

In the D travel pack...

In the door by the cookies and the party stash ;)
Also includes its own risk factors

 The best part is that with all that Juice in the house... not only can you make the low go...


You can share it with one happy sissy too!

Oh the things you can do with a JJ!

I keep at least one Juicy Juice box in my purse, in my car and at church, but probably the strangest place was in my jacket pocket I just put on for the first time since spring. :0)

Love the Juicy Juice! I love it because it's 100% juice. They are everywhere around our house too, although I haven't even found one in the mixer! lol.

My sis, My diabetic daughter (10 yrs old), and I went horseback riding last weekend. We were only going for about 30 mins and we weren't far from home but I didn't feel secure without my JJ. Since my legs would be bent, I kept the juice in my bra!!! Gotta love the security that little box gives.

Amanda said...

We have it all over too, let's see the weirdest place, might be in the bed with my kid, or maybe the one I keep in the basket of my bicycle for those family bike rides. How about all the empty ones all over the house from where my 3 year old non-D kid finds them and drinks them. I'm always replacing them because he just doesn't understand that those are for Korky's lows. Kudos to JJ for contributing to the sugar bolus!

I love me some juicy juice! I WANT TO WIN THIS!!!
Wierdest place.... I don't know... we've got it in the glove box, the upstairs linen closet, in my classroom at school, in the box of bows in Sweetpea's room. D bags, purses.... Beach bags. Carry on's when traveling (to hell with the no liquid rule - you don't separate us from JJ). The thing is... there's NO weird place for JJ! He rolls with it wherever he goes!

AWESOME giveaway! Thanks Lora and JJ!

Kelly said...

just like everyone else...the boxes of JJ are EVERYWHERE! i've carried one in my boot before-tucked right in next to my sock. in my bra, in my pocket. i've even had one BURST in my PURSE while i was frantically rummaging around like a mad woman trying to FIND it so that it could 'save the day'...so you bet your bottom i squeezed some out of the bottom of the bag and dripped it into ben's mouth-oh yeah-i went there!! you do what you've got to do!!
how is JJ NOT a sponsor or supporter of the JDRF or the ADA?? we could probably work on that ladies! juicy juice is a life line for us!

I've always loved JJ because it is 100% fruit juice, but since my son was dx'd last month, it will have an even more important use in our house in the future.

Misty said...

JJ!!! Woohoo! Awesome giveaway! It is EVERYWHERE...refrigerator, of course! Xtra Fridge in garage, glove box & console in car, Ally's bookbag, my purse, D bag, nurse's station at school- of course!, Ally's classroom, ALL the classrooms in the school-yes, I made kits for ALL rooms in the school!, my bedroom, upstairs linen closet, soccer bag, swim bag, Grandma's house...even my neighbor's garage fridge:) But none of those seem unusual to us!

After your JJ post, I emailed JJ about how important they are to T1Ds and if they thought of partnering with JDRF etc. The response I got was that they contribute to a charity that gives to food banks and the hungry, etc. So awesome that you were able to get a giveaway from them!

Like all the other D families, JJ is EVERYWHERE!! The one I keep in my purse is in a plastic sandwich bag cuz I fear an incident like Kelly had. :-) For us, I have to have 3 boxes with me cuz if my t1d son goes low, my other two boys want one too.

Jen said...

Would you believe we have never had JJ? Thats my story..never had it but would love to win it and try some so I too can share stories!

Amy said...

Seriously *loves* us some Juicy Juice. Have to admit we have a similar stand mixer (but in red) and sure enough when I went to look, 2 were resting nicely inside. Why? Because at 2 in the morning I want to be able to stumble into my kitchen, reach out, and be able to grab a Juicy Juice. We have some by her D supplies in a little plastic drawer, in the fridge,(duh) in the car, in my purse, in the nurse's office, in my daughter's grab-n-go bag, in my husband's car, and in the laundry room. (our extra food storage area) So ...... do we need more? Absofreakin'lutely!!!!!

Tracy (The Crazy Pancreas) said...

We keep JJ EVERYWHERE. :-)

In the D bag, the Diaper bag, the purse, the pockets, the fridge, the night stand, etc.

Count us in!

I want to win!!! A box of JJ, balances my "UNI-BOOB" in the winter when I put it in my coat breast pocket to keep it from freezing. I usually sport a little "UNI-BOOB" from having the glucometer in my other breast pocket at all times while sledding and ice skating...otherwise, it won't read Joe's bg b/c it is too cold.

Your car is so clean. My console looks nothing like that. I am truly impressed :)

Here's my Juicy Juice story: We never bought juice before our daughter's diagnosis, so neither kid really asks for juice (they are both milk drinkers).

But when my daughter is low and gets a juice, my non-D son says, "Can I have a juice too?"

He's still a little young to understand diabetes, but he's right there with her getting treatments for lows with his diabetic sister.

I just have to laugh!

Love us some JJ because the boxes are the right size for treatments and taking everywhere. I'm jealous of all of those who carry it in their bra, considering I can still buy my bras in the Jr department, the JJ box would look pretty funny in mine LOL.

Extra's always kept in cars, golf bags, garage by his outdoor toys to grab quick rather than running in the house.

Oddest place I found a JJ box, under my son's bed, but then again, everything ends up there eventually so I shouldn't have been surprised

This is heidi and the strangest place I have found JJ is in the bathroom (were still new, I'm sure as the months and years go by treating lows with JJ we'll have a stranger one sometime)

Rachael said...

I one time stashed a JJ in my bra! Yeah, I had a square hmmmm....... WE LOVE JJ!!!

OK so I will enter to support however if I win (which I most likely will not) you can pull someone else because I'm sure the shipping to Canada for one box of JJ would be insane let alone 5 boxes :)

JJ is huge in this house! We have it everywhere. It saves lives around here. For the real lows...the ones under 60, JJ is up at bat. The boys never get tired of it, and can pucker their lips and sip in their sleep. It is as important as milk in the refrigerator. Hooray for Juicy Juice!

Oh it truly have saved us night after blessed night some weeks! I should buy stock in the company! I even used it as part of Diabetes Art Day - and dressed up a little warrior Juicy Juice box. You can find that here at:http://asweetgrace.blogspot.com/2010/09/diabetes-art-day.html
We love JJ around here and like you - we stash it various places. Best has to be at the beach, we stash a few near the bottom of the lifeguard stand on our beach - the lifeguards don't mind, they know all about them and in fact, when they are there - they know she is on the beach! Kind of like a little diabetic lifeguard :0)

Hi! My name is Andrea and I just recently stumbled across your blog and I LOVE IT!!! My sons (only 1 has D) love Juicy Juice. My youngest (non D) has to have an orange one for snack at school EVERYDAY!!! I has to be orange. My oldest (has D) loves it for so many reasons...one being that, where we live, aside from Juicy Juice, I cannot find 15g juice boxes that don't have Seasame Street characters on it. He is 9-1/2 and the last thing he wants when he is low is to drink from a box with Big Bird on it!!! My cabinet is a rainbox of Juicy Juice stock! The weirdest place we have Juicy Juice would have to be the pocket of his pants. Whenever he is out playing, he jams one into one of his pants pockets. Not too weird, but not very normal!

We have not been at this long enough to have stashed any in a strange place, but I always keep Juicy Juice in my fridge and my daughter's bag. I love being able to just stick the straw in her mouth and let her drink without having to wake her up when she is low at night.
