If you are following a  keto or  low-carb diet, and are missing your favorite foods such as wraps, chips, and pizza,  I would like to introduce you to Folios Cheese Wraps.

Product Review: Red ‘No Guilt’ Reduced Calorie Chocolate

After spending four months in the house, you may agree that the current quarantine situation has not been kind to your waistline. Most of us are way less physically active these days, and it’s so easy to reach for the comfort of favorite foods in times of stress. As an admitted foodie, I can especially relate to the temptation to over-snack while working from home. As we all attempt to reacquaint ourselves with self-control, it’s vital to have snacks and sweet treats on hand that you can indulge in while staying on your diet — and if that can include tempting chocolates, how can it be wrong? Please allow me to introduce you to a brand of high-quality chocolate called Red that is reduced calorie, with no added sugar, and insanely delicious. Yes, it exists.

All Pleasure, No Guilt is the promise of Red Chocolate, created by Swiss-owned Chocolette Confectionary. Red is sweetened exclusively with zero-calorie, plant-based Stevia and naturally-occurring melon sugars, giving it an amazing taste, with a reduced amount of fat. Crazy, but true.

Thanks to the absence of processed sugar, Red’s dark chocolate varieties contain up to 50% fewer calories, while Red’s milk chocolate bars’ calorie count is reduced by up to 35%. This mean that the dark chocolate is KETO-friendly (with only 4 net carbs) and both are compatible with Weight Watchers as well! Guilt-free snacking never tasted so sinful. I recently received a selection Red Chocolate bars to review for the blog, and I am not fronting when I tell you that I am personally loving this chocolate. Here’s what arrived in our shipment!

Food Boredom: it is a thing that’s accentuated by a shortage of tasty snacks in the house. Grocery shopping is much less fun these days, and with many confectionaries and gourmet shops closed, thank god that we have the miracle of internet shopping to procure favorite specialty foods and sweet treats. If you’re following a Keto diet, you don’t have to ignore your sweet tooth, thanks to ChocZero, the go-to chocolatier for premium sugar-free, keto-friendly treats. Even better: you can buy them online!

Adding to its popular line of all-natural-ingredient chocolate candies, ChocZero just launched their indulgent version of a confectionery legend: the Peanut Butter Cup. Peanut Butter Cups are one of the most popular candies in the States, and for good reason: they offer both sweet, delicious chocolate and protein-packed peanut butter. Win win!

Available in milk, dark, and white chocolate varieties, ChocZero peanut butter cups are a no-added sugar treat that gets sweeter with every bite — and, surprisingly, they are:

  • Keto friendly
  • Sugar alcohol-free
  • All-natural
  • Sweetened with Monk Fruit only
  • Soy Free
  • Palm Oil Free

ChocZero Milk Chocolate Variety

ChocZero recently sent me samples of all three varieties, assuring me that these peanut butter cups would taste as good as the well-known brands, with zero added guilt. My verdict, they speak the truth! Each bag contains six individually-wrapped candies; and when you open the package you will notice that these peanut butter cups don’t include a paper wrapper, which makes for less mess.
