Tim Hortons Frozen Lemonade

on 7/4/12 3:03 pm - Canada
I tasted one and it was so yummy!  So looked it up and the small is about 120 calories made up of 26 grams of sugar.

How bad is this for an occasional treat?  Im 2 and a half years post op and I'm pretty steady but sometimes I get confused about sugar and stuff

Any opinions???

 It's all sugar.    It's pretty much liquid crap.   
I would be on the floor I'm sure after having one.  I'll stick to iced coffee

I dump on ANYTHING over about 12-16grams.....any smoothie, or Frozen juice of any kind is as Dawn stated "liquid crap"..it doesn't matter how "healthy" they try to make it out to be!!!

prior to surgery 323lbs....4 years post-op maintaining between 108- 114 lb loss.

I wouldn't...even as a treat. Even at 3yrs post RNY I still react badly to added sugar and avoid those things like they were poison.
As previously said it's a cup of crap. Try making your own with splenda and REAL lemon and crushed ice....then share the recipe.
Best wishes

denise, you need to be more aware of what you're putting into your body. At 4 months, you should still be obsessively reading labels, asking for sugar free stuff!!! please!!! you're going to dig yourself a big deep hole if you don't be more aware.

 At 5 years out.. they still make me sick.  Though if you have to have one... you can ask for half syrup instead of the full dose... I also found that coming home and just squeezing lemon juice into a glass of heavily iced water tasted just as delicious with less sickness :)

I had about three sips of one several weeks back.  I had an instant sugar headache and acid reflux and needed to drink several bottles of water before feeling normal.  Pre-op and non-diabetic.

Not worth it.

26 grams is a Ginormous amount of sugar!

Oh Denise please take Monicas advice.
(I'd be in a coma eating that at 4 months -prob. would now too!)

 Believe me when I say I won't be having those anymore! It was a real eye opener. 

Monica, I do read all labels. Honestly. I don't know what happened with the lemonade but I will be more careful. 

Thanks everyone for your input. I have dumped once and I don't want to go through that again. 
I appreciate everyone's concern. This is why I love reading everyone's posts because you learn lots of valuable information.
Have a great day!

I wouldn't dream of even having a sip of that and I'm 6+ years out. Pure sugary crap I'm afraid.

Interesting. I'm just about 4yrs post-op and thought they tasted like ass! I agree with Tabetha - make your own with FRESH lemons and ice water. If you need the sweet aspect, use sweetener.

I can have sugar and I tried it and thought it was nasty.  It was nothing but pure sugar with very little lemon taste.  I couldn't even finish a small one as it was just too gross.

  I had one with my youngest son about 1 month ago and it was truly gross.  I threw it away after two sips.  There is no lemon flavour just sickly sweet taste.  I'm not diabetic and I'm pre-op.  My son also didn't like it and he's 11 and a twig.  So glad he has better taste.
