Three foods we tried:
I purchased these no sugar added Lily’s chocolate bars down at the Stop and Shop. I was pretty sure this would be a mistake of the diarrhea variety, but they were on sale. I was powerless in the face of a low carb GF bargain that was all FAIR TRADE and aimed at my demographic. These bars are 6g net CHO per entire thing. (One bar could be dessert for a family of four.) And they taste GREAT to Bubs, Jack, and me (Joe only liked the dark variety) and no one got a crummy tummy. Stevia and erythritol are involved. Is that OK?
Bubs and I made these cookies from a mix. I’m kind of meh about full-carb GF baking (just because it seems so much worse for everyone than full-carb normal baking), but everyone else liked these whole-heartedly. We used the mix to make 40 cookies (10g CHO/cookie). And then, because I was trying so hard to not be a buzzkill, we used the cookies to make coffee ice cream sandwiches (about 30g CHO per sandwich). That was 20 ice cream sandwiches, or an entire week of muffled freezer-yodeling, There are still seventeen of me left, yo-hoo! Come and get me, yo-hoo! My note to self regarding this mix is: do not buy again unless assigned to bring dessert to a pot luck pool party.
Finally this. At first bite I was all Bleh! Sour! And then Bleh! Texture! But once my expectations re congealed foods had been adjusted, I liked it. 3g net CHO per half cup. But zero g protein. Its point in terms of what it does to you on a molecular level is a mystery, but it is yum. And good for vegans. Also I really like things with a hidden coconut twang. It tastes so good with bananas. 1/4th of a banana and 1/2 cup of this and a handful of almonds = breakfast under 15g CHO.
FINALLY finally, how cheerful that Luna bars are now gluten free. I put one in a person’s lunch box &/or lacrosse glove almost daily. That is one convenient quasi candy bar. And I try to get the really gluten-y seeming flavors like s’mores or pretzel or brownie, but everyone seems to like the lemon one best.
