It looks like the manufacturing process for glucose tablets (Dex-4 style) has had some sort of change. I recently bought some bottles of 50 and the bottle now has a flip top lid to make it “easier” to get the tablets out of the bottle. Since I always carry a tube of the tablets with me, I refill the tube from the bottle.
Here’s the difference: when I put ten of the new tablets in the tube the top of the tube won’t snap into place - grrr! The new tablets are “taller” and don’t seem to be as compressed, nor do they seem as “hard” when I bite down on one.
Does anyone know if this is in fact the new “standard” for these tablets?
For now, I am having to rename my glucose tablet tube. It used to be called “ToT”, for Tube of Ten (always said in a bold voice with some reverb applied), now it will have to be called “ToN”, for Tube of Nine (always in a lower voice with the same reverb applied).
