    I thought maybe we could have a thread for reviewing all these yummy (or not so yummy) low carb things we keep finding.

    That way we know what is nice, and what not to buy (miss meringues.. :sign0137:)

    Copied from an old post of mine in case its useful to anyone:
    So.. the carbophobia cake mix.. that was a very very odd experience. I had to microwave it for a good minute longer than it said cos it wasnt set properly. I then waited for it to half cool down (impatient)cut it in half and then put butter icing (carbophobia vanilla) in the middle.
    It has a bit of an odd texture, very slightly eggy, obviously coconutty, and cant be that bad because despite cutting into slices and putting it in seperate bags in the fridge I ate it all in one day. :eek:
    (Not a good idea :sign0131:)
    Will definitely get it again, it says you can freeze it once made which I think I will do as my self control with cakes obviously still needs some work.

    The breading mix we already know is fab.

    Have also met thorntons diabetic range this week.. omg its soo good!
    I got a little selection bag of chocolates and a fudge bar and it was all so yummy I had to send it to work with hubby in the car rather than have it in the house and obsess about it. Tastes just like proper yummy normal chocolates to me.
    Downside is the little chocs are 7 polyols each, the bars are over 20.

    Will have a think of other things and add to this tomorrow. xx

    Ah good point Karen about the boots diabetic stuff.

    In my opinion:

    Chewy toffees - very good, taste very similar to real toffees, only downside is they are 6 polyols each sweet.

    [​IMG]
    Chocolate wafers - these come singley or in a multipack, they are quite small, but very tasty and pretty low in carbs.

    Milk chocolate bars - not as good as other low carb chocolate out there, ive still got 3/4 of a bar sat in my cupboard from a couple of months ago.. there is always better things to nibble on, lol.

    Travel sweets - Nothing to write home about

    The boots things are much cheaper than the atkins range, although at the moment atkins bars are still on 3 for 2 in boots.

    So ... am I right in thinking that we can have most diabetic stuff with the low sugar content?

    Yep thats right Jools.

    Be mindful that its recommended to have no more than 15-20g polyols a day, and that for some people sweetners stall their weight loss.

    Give them a try, if you stall you know they arnt for you. xx
