I especially commend the quick response to this request! Vivat Baron  

I would like to request that those who might be buying these pops, to  
keep in mind that some of us are diabetic and for this or other  
reasons, shouldn't have items with high amounts of easily absorbed  
sugar.  Please consider getting some of the sugar-free tubes. Well,  
the stuff in the tubes should be sugar-free. I guess the tubes don't  
actually have to be. :-)

Note that in situation of diabetics suffering from low-blood sugar,  
having items like these sugared popsicles around, can be a life-sever.  

I am forever thankful for the Chirurgeons at Pennsic who helped me out  
when I had such a low-sugar episode at Pennsic.

For those curious about diabetes in the SCA and how it can affect how  
some of us play the game, see this article in the DISABILITIES section
