Lily's sugar free gummy worms

Don’t let keto keep you from enjoying sweets!

We’ve got good news – you can still get your candy fix, but without all the sugar and carbs! We’re sharing 9 keto candy alternatives that will let you give in to those sweet tooth cravings without falling off the keto wagon. 🍫

IMPORTANT NOTE:

We get that everyone does keto in their own way. With that said, the low-carb candy options below are just suggestions and we encourage you to do what works best for you!

Keep in mind that some of the sugar alternatives used in these candies may knock you out of ketosis. However, we still think these are better options than all the sugar-filled candies available. Also, note that excessive consumption of select artificial sweeteners with sugar alcohols may have a laxative effect (i.e. sorbitol, xylitol, mannitol, erythritol, & maltitol). 💩


1. Lily’s Sour Gummy Worms

If you’re a sour candy person, then you have to try these sour gummy worms from Lily’s! The tangy exterior eventually turns sweet, and the Tart Apple-Peach and citrusy Lemon-Raspberry flavors really compliment each other.

  • Serving Size: 1 pouch | 180 Calories | 0g Fat | 42g Total Carbs | 24g Fiber | 0g Protein | 5g Net Carb
  • Ingredients: Non-GMO Soluble Corn Fiber, Allulose, Erythritol, Lactic Acid, Pectin, Citric Acid, Sodium Citrate, Stevia Extract, Natural Flavors, Colors Added (Apple, Blackcurrant, Carrot, Pumpkin, Saffron, and Spirulina Concentrate).

Where to buy:

“The sour gummy worms were good, but I could pick up on an aftertaste from the stevia and erythritol. I’m pretty picky on that. But if people don’t mind that or aren’t sensitive to it, they’d probably really like these sour gummy worms! I think Lily’s does a good job with all their products so they’re definitely worth trying.” – Emily, Hip Sidekick


2. Smart Sweets Sour Blast Buddies

Think of these as the keto version of Sour Patch Kids! It’s definitely dirty keto, but this is one of Collin’s favorite candies. These vegan candies are a mouther-watering mix of berry, blue raspberry, lime, lemon, and orange flavors that we can’t get enough of.

3. Think! High Protein Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars

Think keto bar sitting on the table

Holy moly, these are out-of-this-world delicious! We’ve raved about these in their own product review because they’re seriously the tastiest on the market. Sure, protein bars are typically perfect for on-the-go and not usually classified as keto candy, but these are more like delicious desserts, and each bite makes you feel like you’re eating a real candy bar.

  • Serving Size: 1 Bar | 180 Calories | 14g Fat | 14g Total Carbs | 3g Fiber | 2g Sugar | 7g Sugar Alcohol | 10g Protein | 4g Net Carbs

“These bars are a game-changer. Out of all of the bar brands I’ve tried, there have been a lot of great ones, but these are officially my new favorite! I really like how affordable they are, usually $1-$1.50 per bar which is awesome especially for a keto product.” – Angela, Hip Sidekick


4. ChocZero Milk Chocolate Covered Toffee Double Dipped Almonds

Once again, ChocZero has blown us away with their chocolate-covered toffee-dipped almonds. We love these so much that we made an entire product review about this perfectly poppable keto candy. The almonds are packaged 2 to a bag, so they’re easy to portion control (…or you could always grab a second pouch 😉).

Where to buy:

“I love the ChocZero double-dipped almonds so much! I keep a pack at my desk (with a bag of their milk chocolate chips) for when sugar cravings strike! The almonds are individually portioned in packs of two, which also keeps me from snacking on too many at a time. 😉 I love the coconut flavor with the almonds and I especially love that there is no added sugar!” – Jenna, Hip Sidekick


5. ChocZero Chocolate Bunnies

ChocZero Keto Easter Bunnies in packages

Yes, another ChocZero product, but for good reason! These little chocolate bunnies recently hopped into our lives and we’re so grateful! They’re perfect for the season, but they sell out quickly so get your hands on them soon before they’re gone until next year!

These HighKey Caramel Clusters are a little pricey, but OMG they sure are decadent. I’ll grab one and immediately put the box at the back of the pantry so I’m not tempted to grab another because I could seriously eat the entire box of six all at once. One taste and you’ll be hooked!

“This is amazing. Every now and again, I get a strong chocolate craving, and 95% cocoa isn’t cutting it. I was very impressed and almost suspicious about how good this tastes. Now, I’ve been keto for a long while, so maybe I’m forgetting what real chocolate tastes like, but this tasted no different to me.

I was worried I had made a mistake and that I would go right out of ketosis…nope…tests show I’m still right where I want to be. I had my husband try it and he’s one of those guys that hate ‘diet food’ you know the type, and he loved them. I do not leave reviews ever, I was just so excited about these I had to review for other keto followers.” – Amazon Reviewer

Carb-O-Licious Low Carb Rum Balls

These rum balls are so unbelievably yummy, they’ll have you doing a doubletake of the label, but don’t worry, they’re keto-approved! They’re a great on-the-go snack when you need a little protein boost, and they also make the perfect chocolatey topping for keto ice cream.

    I don’t even like peanut butter, but those Think keto bars are so delicious!!

    • sbaggett

      We love them too!

  2. Rosa

    Trader Joe’s has a chocolate bar that is only 2 net carbs and it is super yummy. The name is simply lite, no sugar added. Comes in milk and dark chocolate and dark chocolate with almonds. Made with maltitol but taste is good.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh cool! Thanks for the suggestion, Rosa! We’ll have to look for that one!

    • yonawrites

      We looooove those bars. I will eat the milk chocolate one for the extra carb, but the dark with almonds is pretty good too. I use these to bake with too!

    • KayleighW

      It’s 2 net carbs/serving, not the whole bar. But they are delicious!

  3. wiscomom

    You mentioned some of these sugars can knock you out of ketosis. Which ones? I thought it was just if I consume too many net carbs in one day. Thanks
