Being hypoglycemic means I have to carry something with me at all times, just in case, but I can count on one hand the number of times I've ever eaten in a store (read: never). I usually try to hold out till I'm done shopping then nosh in the car as long as I'm not shaking too hard.

Back when I used to go shopping straight after work I'd sometimes get woozy part-way around and have to go grab a Twix off of the sweets counters near the tills. I'd make sure I handed over the empty packet to be scanned and pay for once I was done, though.

For hypoglycemia, most every pharmacy will have glucose tablets. 4 grams of sugar and a little flavoring. Generally, there will be a pocket/purse size tube with 10 tablets, and a larger bottle for refills available. I've usually seen the small tube sell for about a buck, with the bottle being cheaper for the volume, but awfully hard to put in a pocket.
Pop a couple of those tablets and sit a moment, and the problem is usually handled.
