this chocolate bar by Chocoperfection is pretty standard. It’s dark chocolate so it’s not that sweet and they do put roasted almonds inside. It’s basically like sugar-free version of Mr. good bar. That’s not a bad thing but a lot of times when you have a dark chocolate that’s not that sweet the flavor is not as appealing. It’s not that this is a bad chocolate bar. It’s not. To be honest if you were craving chocolate and wanted to keep it low carb this will probably be a great fit. It’s just that this wasn’t one of the better ones I’ve had. Kind of a five out of 10 scenario. Again totally doable and I’m pretty sure I’ve had some chocolate from this brand it’s even better than this one. But it’s not the kind of chocolate you flip your lid over either.
I don’t know if I should even really talk about this stuff. I mean it’s sugarfree so I guess it’s worth mentioning. But I have no idea if any my readers even care about something like Healing Butterfly chocolate green tea powder. Personally was not a huge fan. Look I am a coffee guy through and through. Tea is OK but it’s rare that I find a Tea I really like. It’s Always so watered down. I need something with a little kick to it. A bite.
I do understand that there are people out there that love green tea. If you do and you want something with sugar-free you probably like this. It’s probably a safe bet. I’m not the right person to judge it. See I told you probably not even worth me posting this.
Maybe I could talk about something that I do know about for the rest of the review that you might care little bit more to hear. I could easily go on for a couple paragraphs about the newest version of the Star Wars movie if you’d like. Actually that could be pretty long post. Maybe too long even. You know what I won’t get into it. I will say this I personally thought Star Wars the last Jedi is very similar to sugar free chocolate green tea powder. That is to say it’s sufficient for what it is but it doesn’t have the bite or kick of excitement that you want. I would imagine that sugar-free chocolate green tea powder in Star Wars the Last Jedi probably go together perfectly on a nice winter evening.
Go go drink some coffee.
I know that I’ve mentioned the brand Smartcakes before. They do a really good job of creating a small zero carb cake treat. These things are full of tons of flavor. I recently tried one of their newer flavors which is tangerine. At first this didn’t seem like a good flavor for a snack cake but I was completely wrong. This was super yummy had great taste. Because of the fruit flavor I actually felt comfortable using this as a breakfast snack.
The cakes are not very big but there are two in a package. They’re closer to small muffins. Very moist and fresh. The aroma that these cakes put off it’s very refreshing as well. I really wouldn’t of thought of a tangerine flavored cake would work but there’s no question in my mind that I would eat these agian.
I love the Know Better Cookies. These guys absolutely nail the low carb cookie. Perfect texture and they are big enough to fill you up. They are soft in the center and fresh tasting. The newest one I tried was the Cinnamon cookie. This has a nice spice to it. Try these cookies for sure. Super good.
Note: these cookies use a different sweetener which subtracts from the carbs. So the traditional math that you use on the back it doesn’t apply.
Keto Carne makes some solid beef Jerky. What stands out about this particular jerky is the spice. It definitely has some heat. You can see the red pepper flakes right there on the jerky. So if spicy food isn’t your thing this probably isn’t for you. It’s not the spiciest that I have ever had but it has enough heat to really stick with you. The tenderness of the meat is great and they use some nice cuts. Great jerky.
4505 brand Pork Rinds make a solid late night snack. These guys do things a little bit different than some of the other pork rinds on the market. What stands out to me about them is how they don’t over flavor them and the pork rinds are always a bit smaller in size. Also never really overcooked. Sometimes I get pork rinds from the local place in town and they are hard as rocks. These are fried perfectly with just the right amount of chili and salt. Delicious with a cool beverage while chilling out. I definitely put these on the higher end of the scale want to comes the pork rind quality.
The quick easy review hear is if you’re not planning to kiss anyone later this evening you should try some of these garlicky dill pumpkin seeds by Super Seedz. Great flavor that is stronger than you think. And the tastes work quite well together. Problem is you’re gonna have a taste in your mouth for a little while so if you plan on getting close to somebody you will want to avoid these.
All in all this company does a great job. The seeds are always well flavored and have a nice into salt on them. Perfect for snacking. The mother flavor options so if this doesn’t fancy your taste buds they’re bound to have something that well.
I feel kind of bad. I judge the shake poorly. This is little guy was sitting in my fridge for couple weeks before I actually tried it. For some reason the packaging and the contents inside made me think it would taste a little bit too “healthy”. You know like maybe it had fake stuff in it. I’m not afraid to say that I was wrong.
The tropical Kuma Shake Is meant to be a Keto-genic shake that is less than five carbs to help curb your appetite. It’s really tasty. It’s almost like drinking a smoothie. I say that because it’s a little bit thicker than the traditional protein shakes you might find in the store. This had some small chunks of what tasted like fruit and coconut. Great flavor, sweet, and definitely hits the tropical taste. This would be super tasty on that warm summer day. When you get to be heavy on the carb counting like me every carb adds up. So when it comes to picking a protein shake that has 1 to 2 carbs versus 3 to 5 I usually will go with the 1 to 2 carbs option. However this one tasted so good I would actually consider having it again.
The thing that stands out most about this company is it’s family owned. I highly recommend reaching out and giving these guys a try. Super tasty and worth the investment.
If you read this blog you know that I am constantly on the look-out for Low Carb products that meet my lifestyle and help to make my life a bit easier. Saving time on cooking, and having a variety of snacks available help to make the diet a bit easier on myself so I don’t get bored with the same old things. So when I discovered that there was a new subscription service that sends you products that fit within the low carb lifestyle I was on board.
Keto Krate is a new subscription box that is available in the long list of to your door monthly box subscriptions that is specifically geared towards the Keto and low carb lifestyle. They guarantee that all items in the box will be less than 5 carbs per serving and that the value of the collected items products will always exceed the cost of the box.
My desire to find some new snacks that were low carb is really what made me decide to give it a try, that plus who doesn’t like a surprise now and then.
My review's for the individual products in this box will be cut short here. I will be doing more in-depth reviews on each product and share links to those reviews here as I complete them. Right now I just want to talk about this month's box and what I got as a whole.
The February Keio box is jampacked with a ton of stuff. This months box is probably one the best boxes I’ve seen in sometime. Lots of cool stuff to try and multiple items.
You can always expect some meat snacks to try. This box had two different options. The first is a meat stick by the Rome sticks company and the second is some beef jerky by Keto Carne. Both companies we tried before in the box but both do a solid job. There’s also some chocolate in here to dry. A chocolate bar and a chocolate shake mix. There’s also some chocolate green tea powder which is really unusual to me but I’m excited to try it as it sounds different. There’s a KNOW better cookie which is a brand I absolutely love. Included some tangerine smart cakes also. I always love it when there’s baked goods in the box. There’s a snack bag of olives by the OLoves company and some spicy Texas chili pumpkin seeds too. Both of these items seem like great things to keep my desk at work for when I get a little hungry. They also included a sample of some sugar-free chocolate hazelnut spread and the sample of some water replenisher. The last thing in the box might be the biggest and the thing I’m most excited to try which is a macadamia milk. I drink a lot of almond milk in my house so I was excited to see this. Usually in the Keto boxes there’s only about nine items so I was super excited to get a couple extra things to try. Even if it’s a small sample It feels like I’m getting a better value. I was very happy with this box and the items inside of it. I also think it’s great when the items in the box work together. Being able to use the chocolate shake mix with macadamia milk seems like a no-brainer.
I’m looking forward to properly review items in this box. I’ll let you know what I think.
I’m not super convinced about this stuff. Like why do I need protein water in the first place? Can I just drink sparkling water? I mean I know it probably doesn’t have the proteins in it. But I can get my proteins through other methods. Getting through water seems like an odd way to do it.
How does it taste? It’s all right kind of taste like flavored water I guess. The sweeteners in it do you give it a slightly artificial taste. But it’s not awful. I just wouldn’t buy this off-the-shelf. Rather just have a sparkling water with a little lemon in it. And if I want something that has protein in it in liquid form and probably go for shake.
