Skinny Me Belgian Chocolates

Have any of you tried these, and if so, any feedback? They just promoted their chocolate on my Facebook feed and they send you a sample and then enroll you in their program whereby they send you chocolate each month and charge 30..something each month. Cancel at any time.

Less expensive are the lc chocolate bars at Trader Joes unless this is truly magnificent chocolate hence the reason I'm asking!

Thirty dollars a month on chocolate? Did I read that right? Seems like a lot of chocolate for one person. I get a bar of 87% cacao or so and eat about 4 little tiny squares every now and then. I found that is all I need and I really have a sugar addict thing going on.
But, if you really love chocolate, signing up for a month would not hurt. I always like 'cancel any time.'

Beware of sugar alcohols such as malitol. I bought some Belgian chocolates during a promotion at Costco one time, and I found that they gave me too much gastric distress to enjoy.

I just checked out their website, and they use stevia and erythritol! It seems like these would be totally acceptable for a LC WOE. I love that they're individually packaged, and they have truffles! I got myself in trouble with stevia-sweetened bars because I couldn't seem to stop myself from eating the whole thing, but with them being pre-packaged, I think it would help me a lot.

Thanks for posting! I'm going to order some when some of the "coming soon" flavors come out.

I've become accustomed to dark chocolate. I have found that Ghiradellis squares, split in half with hubby is perfectly perfect.

I saw it in my Facebook feed as well. I am going to try them (free sample if you pay shipping) when the weather cools down a tad more. Not sure if they will be any better than other low carb chocolates. I already love Lily's Sweets chocolate.
