shout out for Lily's Chocolate Chips
 
Netrition now carries Lily's chocolate chips, sweetened with erythritol and stevia. I've long been a fan of the chocolate bars, but am in heaven over the chips. Finally, a great chocolate chip with no gastric distress from maltitol. Highly recommended.

Speaking of Lilly's Chocolates, I bought the chocolate bars BOGO at Harris Teeter today. 2 for $4.49.

Got the chocolate chips and used them in Cherry Chocolate mini cupcakes. They are the tiny size chocolate chips so they go a long way. They taste like regular chips and nooo laxative effect.

Yikes! $6.99 for 12 oz, I'm going to have to wait for a sale to try them.

I totally understand. They are pricey. However, A little goes a long way. The chips are tiny and you get a lot. All the lilys products are expensive but IMHO worth it.

Thanks. I may reconsider. I ordered a few of the bars late last summer to give them a try, but it was obvious they had melted in transit and rehardened. The texture was very grainy. I'm assuming this was just because they had melted.

The chips and bars are quite good!

OMG I ordered these and I love them. I already ate my whole bag. I would put them in everything and just snack on them. I had no issues with my stomach, I CANNOT do malitol, nor did I have issues with weight loss. I would probably pay $20 a bag if I had to. They are worth it.

The LC Foods Dark Chocolate Buttons are also great and malitol free. I ordered them from Netrition. Before finding these, I chopped up the ChocoRite bars also malitol free. These are decadent.

MsWoods 04-04-2014 11:30 AM

I just chose the Lily's to try them, instead of the buttons from LC foods (I love their products as well). I have also chopped up Chocoperfection bars in a pinch, because I can get them locally.

Interesting! All these products mentioned sound great! Thank you.

I love the Lily's chips. My favorite flavor of the bars is Salted Almond & Milk, but they are all good (haven't tried the Crispy Rice though).

Lily's chocolate chips and candy bars are on sale at Whole Foods. I went a little crazy and bought 4 bags of chocolate chips and one each of the bars.

MargD, thanks so much for the heads up on the sale at Whole Foods. I cleaned them out myself. In fact, I bought so many chocolate bars, people were stopping me to ask about them. I saw how their eyes fell from my face to my figure, to try to determine how such a chocolate pig could be normal weight!

You're very welcome. I've had 1/2 of one of the crispy bars, so far. It's so good, I'm tempted to go back for more. I was looking online to see when the sale ends, and I didn't even find anything to indicate they were on sale.

I wish we had a Whole Foods! But I'll check them out online.
Does eating these bring on more sweet cravings?

I don't have physical cravings when eating them, per se. But they are very good and when I have them around I do want eat them frequently. I decided not to buy any bars for a while as I went through a good number of them in way too short a period of time.

Soobee 04-11-2014 12:34 PM

No cravings here also. But they are delicious. And there's a nice variety, which is also conducive to overeating. I just factor in my day's food choices how much I want to eat. I am always eating chocolates, but these are my current favorite.

MargD 04-11-2014 12:43 PM

I have not noticed any cravings. As far as overeating them, this weekend will probably be the test. I haven't been home very much since Wednesday evening when I bought them.

GME 04-12-2014 08:25 AM

My Whole Foods has Lily's Easter candy. I didn't think to look for the chips.

MsWoods 04-17-2014 08:34 AM

I'm so excited! My local health food store got these in. They are $5.15 a bag, but having them at my disposal is worth the price. They also have the bars now, but I didn't get one because I got the new Orange Chocoperfection bar:yummy:
