I 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.
One of my favorite sweet treats are brownies. And I don’t mean fluffy chocolate cake taking the form of a little square, I mean dense, chewy, fudgey brownies. I have tried countless low-carb, diabetic, and sugar-free brownie mixes and have been sorely disappointed… until now. They still are not quite the consistency of a real brownie made with sugar, however the Gourmet Chocolate Brownie Mix from Diabetic Kitchen produces the closest approximation that I’ve found by a pretty wide margin.
After 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”.
For a very long time I was in search of a low-sugar or sugar-free chocolate that didn’t taste… off. That wasn’t gritty in the mouth. That actually tasted and felt like chocolate. I tried various big candy brands’ sugar-free options but these mostly used sugar alcohols so I was unable to eat more than a piece or two at a time (see my article on sugar alcohols for why). Then I found ChocZero and my ketogenic life changed forever. Continue reading “ChocZero”
