Miss candy? Well, we can fix that.

We’ve got good news – you can still get your candy fix, but without all the sugar and carbs! We’re sharing 13 keto candy alternatives that will let you splurge without the guilt.

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).

Now for the good stuff! Here are 13 keto candy alternatives we love:

1. ChocZero Sugar-Free Dark Chocolate Squares

What would we do without ChocZero?! Their Sugar-Free Dark Chocolate Squares are creamy, rich, and ideal for anyone with dairy allergies or erythritol sensitivities. Monk fruit is one of our favorite keto sweeteners and we love the flavor that it gives this satisfyingly delicious low-carb chocolate.

  • Nutrition (1 square): 4.5g Fat | 1g Net Carbs | 0g Protein
  • Ingredients: Dark chocolate (unsweetened chocolate, cocoa butter), soluble corn fiber, sunflower lecithin, monk fruit extract, Madagascar bourbon vanilla beans.

2. ChocZero Sugar-Free Keto Chocolate Bark

It’s hard to believe this Keto Chocolate Bark is so low-carb because it tastes just like a high-quality regular chocolate bar. 🙌 With just 2 net carbs per serving, you won’t feel guilty indulging in these tasty treats.

  • Nutrition (1 ounce): 10g Fat | 15g Total Carbs | 1g Protein | 13g Fiber | 2g Net Carbs

“One of the best parts about this keto-friendly treat is the absence of any strange aftertaste that can come with lots of sugar-free desserts. All you taste is the richness of the chocolate and the nuttiness of the crunchy bits throughout. YUM! I always carry a couple of ChocZero keto bark packs in my purse and have a few stashed away in the refrigerator for a decadent after-dinner treat.” – Ashley, Hip Sidekick

3. Lily’s Chocolate Bars

If you haven’t heard of Lily’s, your taste buds are seriously missing out. This decadently delicious chocolate is sweetened with stevia making it a sweet treat that’s actually low in carbs! Our Hip2Keto team loves them! Collin’s favorite is the Salted Almond and Milk Chocolate variety.

  • Nutrition (40 grams): 14g Fat | 21g Total Carbs | 3g Protein | 6g Sugar Alcohols | 11g Fiber | 4g Net Carbs
  • Ingredients (based on Almond milk chocolate): Unsweetened cocoa, cocoa butter, erythritol+, inulin, dextrin+, organic whole milk powder (rbst free), dry roasted almonds, milk fat (rbst free), sea salt, organic soy lecithin, stevia extract, vanilla extract.

Tom & Jenny's classic soft caramels

4. Tom & Jenny’s Sugar-Free Soft Caramel Candy

First off, this keto candy is delicious and tastes just like the real thing. As far as keto… is Maltitol the best sugar alcohol? No. That said, the serving size is 5 pieces and they’re fairly large pieces for a soft caramel candy (larger than your average tootsie roll).

  • Nutrition (5 pieces): 4.5g Fat | 24g Total Carbs | <1g Protein | 24g Sugar Alcohol | 0g Net Carbs
  • Ingredients (based on Classic flavor): Maltitol syrup, heavy cream (milk), xylitol, vanilla extract (water, alcohol, vanilla bean extractives), palm oil, sea salt.

In any case, people on a keto/low carb diet who crave sweets and have portion control will do just fine eating 2-3 of these a day EVEN IF you count every sugar alcohol as a carb (25g/5 pieces = only 5g carbs per piece). Definitely one of the better keto candy options & worth trying out.

Where to buy:

“Looking for something sweet like candy on a keto diet is near impossible and I am too lazy to cook my own candy so when I found these my mind was blown away! The taste is just like caramel, they are sweet and chewy! 10/10” – Amazon reviewer


ChocoRite Milk Chocolate Pecan Clusters

5. ChocoRite Milk Chocolate Pecan Clusters

Be careful with this keto candy because it’s dangerously delicious! It’s rumored to taste just like a chocolate turtle candy bar but without all the sugar. The ooey-gooey caramel mixed with the chopped pecans creates the most amazing texture, making these keto sweet treats a keto-ers dream!

  • Nutrition (1 piece): 3g Fat | 8g Total Carbs | 1g Protein | 1g Sugar Alcohol | 6g Fiber | 1g Net Carb
  • Ingredients: Caramel layer (fructooligosaccharides, vegetable oil (palm kernel, palm oil), water, glycerine, milk protein concentrate, nonfat dry milk, salted butter (cream, salt).

Where to buy:

“For anyone who is diabetic, ketogenic, or just wants a low sugar alternative treat, look no further! ChocoRite has made a delicious substitute. The Pecan Clusters are my family’s favorite with the soft and chewy caramel center coated in milk chocolate and pecans. – Amazon reviewer


Carb-O-Licious Low Carb Rum Balls

6. 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.

7. SuperFat Cacao Coconut Nut Butter

Technically, nut butter isn’t keto candy, but it definitely tastes like a delicious treat and satisfies those sweet-tooth cravings! 😋 I have to hide these from myself because I’m THAT addicted!

Eat it by itself, drizzle it over ice cream, or spread it on some celery. The sweet and salty chocolate coconut flavor is to die for! We’re also big fans of SuperFat’s Coffee + MCT nut butter flavor.

  • Nutrition (1 pouch): 16g Fat | 9g Total Carbs | 4g Protein | 2g Sugar Alcohol | 4g Fiber | 3g Net Carbs
  • Ingredients: Coconut Butter, Almonds, Erythritol, Cacao Powder, Macadamia Nuts, Cinnamon, Pink Himalayan Salt, Steviol Glycosides (Stevia).

“Wow – this stuff is so good, I can’t believe it’s keto! I started out with the variety pack which I ordered directly from their website. All the flavors are great, but my absolute favorite is the pumpkin sea salt. The mix of dark chocolate, pumpkin seeds, and a touch of salt is so good. It’s sweet, but not too sweet, and it doesn’t taste artificial like other packaged keto snacks. I’d eat this even if I wasn’t doing keto!” – Amazon reviewer

9. ChocoRite Peanut Butter Cup Patties

Calling all peanut butter fanatics! You can’t have Reese’s peanut butter cups, but this keto candy is the next best thing! We’ve given these tasty treats a try before and found them totally crave-worthy! They’re a little more reminiscent of a Butterfinger but as you can see pictured below, ChocoRite was quite generous with the peanut butter filling.

The peanut butter flavor is very prominent, but it’s not overwhelming and there’s no weird aftertaste like other protein bars sometimes have.

12. ChocZero Peanut Butter Cups

Another utterly delicious peanut butter candy we love! ChocZero’s Peanut Butter Cups taste so similar to a real Reese’s (or maybe even better) and they come in three different chocolate variations.

The white chocolate peanut butter cups are my personal favorite and they are to die for, but you won’t be disappointed by the dark or milk chocolate selections either. We also love these decadent candies in our keto peanut butter cup cookie recipe!

Where to buy:

“I’m in so much trouble! I love these peanut butter cups so much that it is hard not to overindulge. I think I like the white chocolate best. Also, the way they ship these is so careful and they arrive in perfect shape in their own reusable insulated bag. This is the best sugar-free chocolate product I’ve ever had.” – ChocZero reviewer


lakanto chocolate bars

13. Lakanto Sugar-Free Chocolate Bars

You can always trust the clean keto ingredients in Lakanto’s low-carb offerings. Their erythritol and monk fruit sweetener blend is probably the closest thing to what real sugar tastes like and they don’t mess around with their flavors. We’re also big fans of their ultra low-carb Cinnamon Almond Crunch Granola!

One bar will be 3-4 servings for me because the taste is so good and they seem to fill me up. They are pricey but worth it if you are trying to kick sugar.” – Amazon reviewer
