    Does anyone use these? I have the choc chip day break ones at the moment (which I bought for my mother who is struggling with breakfast and she hates them) and they say something like 2.4g carbs; but they also have polyols in which I know all about. Just wondered if the polyols have a negative effect on ketosis for anyone? I know they aren't meant to but I can't help being suspicious!

    Thanks :)

    I'm a bit like that. I don't trust them. I do allow myself Atkins shakes (no polyols) and one low carb pitta a day which make this diet a lot easier :)

    Polyols can stall some people... they can also make you a regular visitor to the loo! x

    Not tried one to be honest, if I need choc I usually turn to Thorntons or co-op 85% cocoa choc. Might give them a go next year lol
