"Guess the carbs" game!

This is a game for diabetes educators (and anybody else who has some extra time on their hands)!
Try to guess how many net carbohydrates are in the following popular fast food items- no cheating!
The one who can guess most accurately will win… nothing. But will have the satisfaction of knowing that they know their carb content!


Answers will be posted Friday.

*Bonus points if you can guess how many calories each food item has!

Wheat n’ Honey bagel
Chocolate chip muffin
Low fat cranberry muffin
Chocolate glazed donut

Starbucks
Grande café mocha, no whip
