I love to find fun and yummy snacks that are low in sugar and can carry in my purse, but it seems they are so hard to come by! My latest find is Dark Chocolate Dipped Altoids and Sweetroit nibs.
The Dark Chocolate Dipped Altoids are basically a smaller version of regular Altoids covered in a layer of dark chocolate. A really nice combination I think. The little mints are 1gram of sugar each with an S/C Value of 1/0, so they are perfect for little sweet something and to share with a friend. That is pretty much the same S/C Value that other Altoid flavors have, with the added bonus of CHOCOLATE) I found mine at Trader Joes, I apologize if they are hard to find! Even Amazon has them backordered. Unfortunately my first tin melted together when I had my kids at the park and my purse was in the sun!
SweetRiot was suggested to me over on twitter by Anthony. They are dark cocoa nibs covered in chocolate (do you detect a theme here?) I found mine at Whole Foods near the registers, but they are also available at Cost Plus World Market and REI. Flavor 70 means 70% cocoa, which is the highest they make. They come in a really cute tiny tins and have an S/C Value of 6/1 for the entire tin. So of course, don't eat the whole thing! Just a few nibbles at a time is perfect. These were about $4 per tin.
Do you have a favorite sweet low sugar snack you carry in your bag?
