Where to buy low carb sweet snacks/desserts?

I know that there are an abundance of low carb dessert recipes on this board (thankfully) but I was wondering if there are any low carb packaged sweets that I could find at the grocery store. I'm having a craving and I don't have the patience or money to buy ingredients to make something. I don't want to slip up and eat something I can't have. I live in SE Texas and we have HEB, Kroger and Walmart grocery stores around here. Do any of them have sugar free/low carb cookies/desserts/sweets that I could buy? Thanks!

I don't have any suggestions for ready-made, store-bought stuff. But when I NEED to have a sweet treat, I take a big scoop of ricotta (or sour cream, or even cream cheese) and mix it in a bowl with a dribble of DaVinci's syrup. Very tasty, beats busting out the bag of Keebler Elves' best works, AND it's almost as fast as something ready-made.

Thanks! Can the DaVinci's syrup be bought in most stores or only online?

I can find many of the basic flavors in my local grocery store (vanilla, caramel, etc. . .), and I think my Wal-Mart carries some brand of SF syrup. You can also find SF syrups (not just DaVinci's) at TJ Maxx and sometimes Marshall's. Also try Sam's club and Target (near the coffees). But you can easily order them online through Netrition.

Davinci syrup

You can buy sugar free syrup at Walmart,Target,Big Lots, price check those places. Kroger has pretty good prices on Walden items as well, They also have carbmaster yogurt 3 carbs per serving.

Russell Stovers has a sugar free caramel/pecan thing, I always see it in the Wal-Mart pharmacy in the diabetic section. VERY NUMMY, but lots of sugar alcohol.

I forgot about that one. And I think I liked it too!

I really like the chocolite products, but I can only find them locally at Kerr Drug (and I think that they're regional). If you are willing to order in advance of a craving, Netrition does sell them . A Pure Protein bar (chocolate deluxe) also helps with my cravings...some might classify those as candy (I don't - I count them as protein!!) Good luck!!

Russell Stover's has green bags of SF candies, all kinds! Just don't eat more than two per sitting or you WILL be sitting - a LOT - in the bathroom! LOL!

Also York makes sugarfree Peppermint Patties. Look in the regular bagged candies aisle, often there will be SF candies too, you just have to search for them.

Last week I got SF gummi bears too!

And for the LAST WORD in good sugarfree candies - sugarfree Jordan almonds. OMG. You'll have to google them online. I get them from the Nuts Online store.

I second using either cream cheese or something like that, some vanilla and sweetener, maybe some cinnamon. much better for you than those candies! and I'm sure people have said that none of the sugar free cookies are the least bit low carb. good luck!
