ChocoRite is a low-carb candy manufacturer, from whom I was recently able to try a few of their Low Carb Candy Bars. They also produce chocolate bars, protein bars and protein shakes, but in this article I’ll be discussing three of their low-carb candy bars; the Chocolate Crispy Caramels, Chocolate Covered Caramels, and Peanut Butter Cup Patties. In total, there are eight different milk and dark chocolate varieties.
A while ago I received a sample of the ChocoRite Chocolate Crispy Caramel candies in my Keto Krate. These candies were so good, I immediately ordered and tried their other two chocolate-covered candies as well. The Crispy Caramels and Covered Caramels are really good and while the Peanut Butter Cups are also good, they leave a bit to be desired…
Have you ever had a Little Debbie Star Crunch cookie? The Chocolate Crispy Caramels immediately reminded me of them. With much the same flavor and mouth-feel, they are an excellent low-carb approximate, but to be perfectly honest, I think they are superior and stand well on their own. They have a bit more caramel in them than the cookies, which I prefer. ChocoRite’s chocolate melts in the mouth easily and leaves behind the caramel and crunchy bits.
With 35 calories per “bar”, which consists of two separate candy pieces, 2 grams of fat, and 7 grams of carbohydrates including 5g of fiber and 1.5g of Erythritol, the result is a nice low net carb count of 1 single gram per serving. For a low-carb sweet that wont’ knock you out of ketosis, you really can’t beat that!
Next we have the Chocolate Covered Caramels. They’re just like the Chocolate Crispy Caramels but with a lot more caramel and without the crunchies. This is the closest thing to a chocolate shop style chocolate-covered caramel I’ve found yet. The caramel is soft, sweet, and stretchy; about halfway between a liquid caramel and a harder chewy caramel. When it comes to my personal preference in caramel, it’s just about perfect.
These candies, also two per package, have 35 calories as well, 2 grams of fat, and 10 grams of carbohydrates consisting of 8 grams of fiber, and 1 gram of Erythritol, again resulting in 1 single gram net carbs.
Next we have the Peanut Butter Cup Patties. These candies have a sweetened peanut-butter center coated in chocolate. The peanut-butter mixture has a great taste and these are coated with the same chocolate as the other two candies discussed above.
While still really good for a low-carb candy, the peanut-butter mixture is however a bit dry. If you’ve ever had a Reeses Peanut Butter Cup that has been sitting on the convenience-store shelf for too long and has gotten dried out, that is what the moisture content of the peanut-butter mixture feels like. In addition to the dryness, while eating them, after the chocolate and some parts of the peanut-butter mixture have melted away, the peanut-butter mixture leaves some chewy bits behind which was unexpected. Overall the candies taste great though and are a pretty satisfying low-carb peanut-butter cup candy.
The peanut-butter cup patties also come two to a package rated at 35 calories and 8.5 grams of carbohydrates, consisting of 7 grams of fiber and 1 gram of Erythritol, resulting in less than a single gram of net carbs! The website humbly calls this 1 gram of net carbs.
All three of these low-carb candy bars, and all of ChocoRite’s other low-carb candy bars, are completely sugar-free and gluten-free. ChocoRite has used only zero-glycemic index sweeteners in these candies, avoiding common sugar-free sweeteners like Maltitol that can elevate your blood sugar levels. From the product description details of all three of these products, it appears that ChocoRite uses a sweetener blend containing Erythritol, Sucralose, and natural flavors and sweeteners like cocoa and vanilla.
In conclusion, I intend to try many more of this company’s low-carb products as these are by far some of the best low-carb candies I’ve come across yet. If you have a craving for chocolate or caramel, I highly recommend checking these out. You can find these products available on Amazon and directly from the manufacturer in six-count and sixteen-count quantity packages.
