  • Unreal Dark Chocolate Caramel Nougat Bars: This is a great option for those who enjoy the peanut, caramel goodness of Snickers Bars. The Unreal brand uses 40% less sugar and organic ingredients. 
  • Smart Sweets Peach Rings: If you prefer something more fruity, these Peach Rings may be an option. Smart Sweets Peach Rings have 88% less sugar than traditional peach rings and only 3g per serving
  • Quest Peanut Butter Cups: This is a peanut butter cup with added protein. Protein helps to keep you full for a longer period of time.
  • Golly Lolli’s: If you like hard candy, Project 7’s new Golly Lolli’s are a great option for you with only 4g of net carbs (total carbs minus fiber) per serving. 
  • Lily’s Chocolate Covered Almonds: For those craving something a little bit more crunchy, Lily’s no-sugar added dark chocolate covered almonds are the perfect match. Not only are almonds a great source of protein, but the sugar-free chocolate coating will definitely satisfy your sweet tooth.
