At Aldi's....

Yep and they're pretty good. Reminds me a little of a snickers bar. The coconut with chocolate are Good too!

I would give anything to have an Aldi's in this state. Have a T.J.s 90 min away in Las Vegas, go there once a year .

ravenrose 09-05-2013 04:03 PM

is that net of sugar alcohols such as maltitol? do tell!

princessmommy 09-05-2013 04:37 PM

I don't have the box anymore but if I can remember i'll look tomorrow at Aldis

Gibbs 09-05-2013 05:12 PM

I can't get the pic to post here, but 17 total carbs, 6 of fiber, 1 sugar, 9 sugar alcohol and the ingredients have maltitol listed. And they are pretty good, I didn't see coconut! :(

princessmommy 09-06-2013 11:32 AM

The coconut reminds me of a mounds bar. Really good. These are about the only LC Bars I can eat and not stall

Really? So like a generic-version of the Atkins Indulge bars???

I'm wondering the same thing. Might have to check out Aldi's this weekend. Are they cheaper than Atkins bars?

gordita 09-06-2013 03:27 PM

I've seen those there, but haven't tried them yet. I worry that once the box opens, they would find their way down my hatch too quickly. I love Aldi, though. :)

Gibbs 09-07-2013 02:51 AM

I'm assuming much cheaper, I was too excited to notice the price :)

Edit...Found the receipt, 5 bars for $3.99

Good price, thanks. I'm going to try and find some today.

princessmommy 09-07-2013 06:49 AM

I don't think they are as tasty as Atkins bars, JMO so when I eat one it's almost like a meal replacement bar instead of an endulgance. Kwim? They taste good but not like a guilty treat kinda good. Lol! 3.99 for 5 bars so yeah cheaper the Atkins bars. I buy them every once in awhile just to keep on hand in case of emergency like going somewhere to eat and not knowing what they are serving.

Mistizoom 09-07-2013 06:19 PM

I bought 4 kinds at Aldi's today. Two of the (the coconut and the caramel nougat, I think) they had lots of, but the other two they were the last boxes left. DH tried one and thought the chocolate was not as high quality as Atkins bars, but he said it tasted good. I just had a real Atkins bar a couple of days ago so I won't be trying them for a while myself.

Do they have soy in them?

Yes, all 4 flavors I bought had soy lecithin, and 3 out of 4 also had soy protein isolate.

LauraDavis 09-07-2013 07:24 PM

The brand is Millville or Millville Advance. They say "compare to Atkins bars" right on the front. They were in same aisle as granola bars at my Aldi.
