Smart Sweets

1567534128.73748765847Smart Sweets is a candy manufacturer currently offering five really amazing gummy candy products; Sweet Fish, Sour Blast Buddies, Peach Rings, Gummy Bears, and Sour Gummy Bears.  These candies are the closest to what you would expect from similar sugar candies that I’ve found yet, and have a satisfying, stick-to-your-teeth, squishy gummy texture.  They’re currently my go-to candy when I want a fruity treat.

Magic Spoon Cereal

Artboard_19_copy_4_1024x1024I have tried many different low-carb and keto-friendly breakfast cereals and granola in search of a comparable experience to that of cereals you would find on the shelf at your local grocery store, and until now, none of them have delivered like Magic Spoon has.  Magic Spoon cereals both taste and feel like normal, crunchy, carbohydrate-rich sugary cereal… except that they aren’t.

KeDough Bakery Chocolate Frosted Donuts

choc_frosted_donutI recently discovered a keto-focused food website called KetoFridge which carries a number of keto-friendly products, including a chocolate frosted donut marketed under their KeDough Bakery brand.  Keto-friendly baked goods that are done well are extremely hard to find, so I had to give these a shot and see for myself.  Surprisingly, these donuts were pretty delicious and also had a fairly accurate baked good feel in the mouth, feeling much like a cake style donut.  The chocolate frosting had a slightly gritty, made-from-sugar-granules feel as well, which overall made these to be very satisfying donuts.

Diabetic Kitchen Gourmet Chocolate Brownie Mix

SKINNYme Chocolate

j9fozn2After ChocZero changed their recipe (see updated post here), I decided to try and find some other sources of keto-friendly chocolate and came across SKINNYme.  They don’t have as many options as ChocZero and unfortunately no milk chocolate (my favorite) but I decided to give them a try anyway as they have a free trial.  They describe their chocolate as “Zero Sugar, Low Calorie, Low Net Carb Dark Chocolate”.

Sparkling ICE

Are you addicted to sugary sweet soda but are trying to maintain a ketogenic diet?  If so then your options are slim.  Most major brands make diet and more recently zero calorie options, but BEWARE of these as nearly every one that I’ve investigated uses aspartame as its artificial sweetener.  The next best thing that I’ve found to satisfy a soda craving is flavored sparkling water, and thus far the best tasting of these that I’ve found is definitely Sparkling ICE.
