Carb Slim Bites aim to be a sugar free, low glucose alternative to the chocolaty candies that are so popular at the local Cineplex. They are available in 5 varieties: Cookie Dough Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Caramel Crunch, Mint Cookie Crunch, Cookie Dough Peanut Butter and Peanut Butter Crunch. Car Slim Bites are made with Splenda and Erythritol, a new sweetener that does not cause the digestive problems that come with some other artificial sugar replacements. These chocolate covered candies are bite sized and contain “virtually no” carbohydrates.

Carb Slim Bites are created with the hope of providing a candy without the usually jolt to the blood glucose levels that comes from high sugar, rich chocolate treats. They come in 5 different flavors with compositions designed to substitute for tried and true favorites. Even the box is familiar, mirroring the brightly colored, big letter design of a concession stand best seller. If a consumer has a medical reason to avoid sugar or chocolate this may be an acceptable alternative; although it is important to note that this product contains a number of things which are allergy triggers – milk and soy – and some of the flavors contain nuts or wheat. As far as flavor goes, online remarks are mixed. Some people thought they were delicious, others not so much. When it comes to substitutes like this personal taste preference really is the final judge. Carb Slim Bites can be bought in a few grocery stores for about $2.00 a box; they are available online in bulk for a small discount. You may want to try and find a single box to taste before committing to a large order.

Carb Slim Bites come in a cute box which is designed to mimic the look of classic movie theater concession favorites. The company that makes them is trying to get theater chains to carry these low carbohydrate bites at their concession stands. Although they receive pretty positive reviews as far as “no sugar candies” go; they may not stand up next to the sugary goodness of Milk Duds or M&Ms. And with 1 gram of carbs per bite, the “benefits” of this candy may not be enough to make you want to switch from a tasty favorite. In the end they are really a diet option, not a diet aid.
