Who said keto diet didn't account for candy?
Keto diet is very restrictive: your daily carb intake is reduced to 20–50 grams to put you in ketosis, a metabolic state in which your body burns fat instead of carbs for energy. This means that most sugary sweets are off the table, but that doesn’t mean you won’t be dying for a piece of candy. Here’s a list of the 5 best keto-friendly candies you can absolutely include in your diet.
SmartSweets Gummy Bears
SmartSweets Gummy Bears are keto-friendly and will also give a sense of childhood to your brain. Though each bag is a bit high in net carbs (18 grams in each 1.8-ounce (50-gram) bag), you can divide it into many portions.
The candy is made with high-quality ingredients, such as colored with fruit juice and sweetened with stevia and allulose, a type of natural sweetener that your body doesn’t absorb.
ChocZero White Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups
If you are craving chocolate, these peanut butter cups from ChocZero might be great for you.
Made from high quality South American cocoa butter, they’re free of sugar alcohols, artificial sweeteners, soy, and palm oil. The best part? only 1 gram of net carbs per piece.
Lily’s Dark Chocolate Covered Caramels
These bite-sized caramels from Lily’s Sweets are covered in dark chocolate and they’re definitely keto-licious.
They’re sweetened naturally with stevia and erythritol, a sugar alcohol that may cause less digestive upset than artificial sweeteners and other sugar alcohols. Net carbs: 6 grams per 1-ounce (28-gram) serving.
Go Better Keto Dark Chocolate Hazelnut Butter Cups
A perfect alternative to those hazelnut butter cups loaded with sugar. They boast 0 grams of net carbs, as they contain both fiber and allulose. Additionally, they’re vegan, dairy-free, soy-free, and preservative-free. Net carbs: 0 grams per 4-piece (32-gram) serving
Stevita Naturals Hard Candy
These keto-friendly hard candies are free of gluten, artificial flavors, and allergens. You can find them in four flavors: cherry, grape, orange, and strawberry.
