Default how do you carry glucose tablets?

Simple question: How do you carry glucose? I am looking for a small key fob like device that I can carry on my key ring to hold 4 tablets. Seems like a simple idea but I can't find anything. I will grant you I'm in Canada but there are diabetics here right

Keeping a tube of the dex4 tablets in my pocket is too big and the times when I seem to be low are always when I haven't got some glucose right with me. On my keyring would be ideal

Ideas?

I just keep 10. I use the Relion kind from Walmart. I guess I purse it huge, because right now I have a 10 tube and the 1 giant bottles i supposed to keep around the house, but I can't find little tube in my purse and if your having a true low , your mind isn't right.

You might can find something small enough for sweet tarts or smarties.

I'm new but I bought a small tourist bag from Walmart to carry meter, pens, and tablets. Any other ideas are welcome!

Is this what you mean? I use a smaller version like these to carry nitro tabs for OWC.
