Review of Dixie Diners Sweet Commute Almond Toffee Crunch Clusters

When you are trying to eat low carb sweet snacks are hard to find. The Dixie Diners folks came out with something called, and get ready for the long name:

Dixie Diners Sweet Commute Caramel Almond Toffee Clusters


This is basically popcorn with almonds, caramel and toffee put together. I have no idea how they limit it to 3 net carbs, but they do.

The serving sizes are well portioned, so you know and feel like you’re getting a true snack. The popcorn isn’t too sticky and it isn’t too soft. It’s just right.

Review of Polaner Sugar Free Raspberry Preserves

What was that commercial?

“Please pass the jelly?”

I bought the Polaner Sugar Free Raspberry Preserves because I am avoiding carbs in my diet. The preserves have a ridiculously low 5g of carbs per serving. A serving is a tablespoon, so it’s a bunch.

The funny thing about this product is that the preserves look like jelly. Where you expect preserves to look like mashed fruit and jelly to look like vaseoline, these look like the latter.

Looks aside, it sure is tasty. It has a slight after taste, which I am not sure about it. It’s either the Splenda or the Raspberries themselves. Unsure.

Review of Dixie Diners Cinnamon Swirl Cake

It’s low carb day. You have to give up cake when go low carb, right? Wrong.

Dixie Diners is a company that caters to low carb, high protein folks. They have a vast array of products and I eat quite a few of them. One of the more tasty ones is the Cinnamon Swirl Cake.

The mix comes in two packets. You make the cake by adding eggs, butter, water and oil along with the first packet of cake mix. You need to use a mixer to ensure the cake is well mixed.

Review of New Hope Mills Pancake Mix

When you decide to eat low carb you know you’re giving up some pretty good things. Thank goodness you don’t have to give up pancakes.

New Hope Mills sells a line of pancake mixes that you can use for waffles. They are incredibly low carb and taste perfect.

Many low carb batters are flat and heavy, but you cannot tell New Hope Mills pancakes from anyone elses.

To make them you mix 2 eggs, 1/4 water and a tablespoon of water together. When mixed, toss in the 1/4 cup of mix and make sure it’s all mixed well. You cook them as you would normally any other pancakes.
