Dixie Carb Counters Cranberry Orange Muffin Mix Review

The Dixie Diner folks really know how to bring the flavor and enjoyment to low carb eating. Anyone who eats low carb and says they don’t like the offerings of Dixie Diner hasn’t tried them. The latest item I tried was the Cranberry Orange muffins. 

Keep in mind that when you eat low carb you are pretty much giving away baked products. The reason is that the flour and other agents inside baked goods actually exist for specific purposes such as rising and adding air to the batter.

The Cranberry Orange muffins come in a package you open revealing a foil mix packet. You’ll need the following to make the muffins:

  1. Sour cream
  2. Egg
  3. Water

Mix it all together and toss it in your muffin pan. We put ours in the large muffin pan and it makes six large muffins.

What I like about Dixie Carb Counters Cranberry Orange Muffins:

  • Taste – The taste isn’t over powering and it really compliments your dinner. Yes, dinner. This is when we typically enjoy them.
  • Storability – We always make too many, so they refrigerate and store well.

What I dislike about Dixie Carb Counters Cranberry Orange Muffins:

  • Price – The price comes in at $6.39 online. Ouch, but so worth it as a special treat.

Listen, these are low carb, so if you buy them expecting your great grandmother’s muffin recipe, you’ll be disappointed. What you will get, though, is a great tasting low carb muffin that you won’t expect. Seriously, these are good muffins you can enjoy from time to time.


  1. As the president and chief person who does the food formulating here at Dixie, i’d just like to explain the fact that low carb products normally cost more than their high carb counterparts because of the specialized ingredients needed to mimic the desired texture and taste results. Flour sells for 10 cents a pound or so wholesale, sugar slightly more, but the high quality low carb ingredients normally cost 2 to 3 dollars or more per pound. Plus the quantity sold is much less than to the general mass market product customers which further limits manufacturing discounts where they may even exist. We at Dixie try hard to bring the best natural products to the low carb market at the lowest possible prices. Thank you for understanding these circumstances under which we operate. We appreciate your business and your feedback and hope to be able to see the time come when more and more people will embrace this healthy style of eating and ingredients may be available to low carb food manufacturers such as ourselves, at lower truckload prices. Enjoy!
