Pure De-lite Low Carb Chocolate Bars
Each bar is 1oz, just the right size for snacking on with a glass of port by a fire. The dark chocolate is a rich Belgian style blend, while the milk chocolate is creamy. They have other styles too, with toffee and other confections. My favorite is the milk chocolate with crisps - while I can get dark chocolate in many styles of low carb, it's hard to find a version of Nestles Crunch which is good for the diet!
We get these in boxes of 6 bar multi-packs for about $5 at WalMart. That's under a buck per bar, and this isn't cheap quality chocolate, either. It isn't quite on par with some of the gourmet chocolates that we've sampled, but it's hard to beat the price.
These are sweetened with 14g of maltitol per bar, and while some people have no effect at all from maltitol, others find that their weight loss completely stops when they ingest sugar alcohols. So always be careful about your sugar alcohol intake and stop with the sweets if you find yourself stalling. Part of the aim of a low carb diet should be to de-sweeten you, not to ingest pounds of sugar alcohol each day :)
Still, for an occasional reward for a job well done, the De-Lites fit the bill! We keep a box or two around the house. They always come in handy for shaving over ice cream, chopping into chips for homemade chocolate chip ice cream, or many other recipes.
