If you’ve perused my blog past a few articles you know that I have a soybean allergy. And that I also make it a point to find delicious chocolate that doesn’t contain soy lecithin.
I’ve been pretty successful on this mission so far but now I’ve got a few other requirements for my chocolate. Lately I’ve been looking for low sugar, low carb chocolate. You see every now and then I follow a different way of eating and a chocolate meeting these requirements would be nice.
I received this product for free from Moms Meet (momsmeet.com) to use and post my honest opinions. This post may contain affiliate links.
I was recently able to sample GATSBY Chocolates through #MOMSMEET to see if they could find a permanent spot in my pantry.
About Gatsby Chocolates
GATSBY Chocolates were created by the co-founders of HALO Top ice cream. Which is also sitting in my freezer by the way. They spent a year perfecting a recipe that not only tasted good but was low in sugar.
GATSBY Chocolates are not only Low Sugar, but also Low Calorie, and Low in Fat. The chocolate only has 1 to 2 Carbs per serving (6 carbs in the whole bar). And come in a variety of flavors including the favorite Peanut Butter Cups. You can also find GATSBY Chocolates at several grocery stores. Which makes it nice and convenient.
Gatsby doesn’t say it is soy free but in reviewing the products I didn’t denote any. Nor did I have any reactions upon ingesting it. (eat at your own risk thought. I did not verify if this was soy free chocolate. You can find my list of soyfree chocolate here.)
Sampling this deliciousness
I recently received a six pack of GATSBY Almond Dark through #MOMSMEET to sample
with my family. Dark chocolate is my favorite when it comes to chocolate so yaayyyy me!!
The GATSBY chocolate bars came (past tense because they are disappearing fast) in a lovely yellow gold box and say 70 calories per serving on them. A serving is 1/3 of a whole bar.
Packaged so pretty I immediately thought they might make a good gift option. I did gift one box away but that was it. Yeah.
To test them for myself I hid in a closet and pulled out the gold foil inner package containing the chocolate. The rectangles are portioned off in case you want to eat only the suggested serving size. There are 3 servings per bar.
Okay I did eventually come out and offer some to my family so I could get their feedback as well.
I was surprised at how tasty the chocolate is. I was prepared for that bitter after taste you usually get with low sugar chocolates but I didn’t experience that with the GATSBY Chocolate.
There are a few more ingredients included in the GATSBY Chocolate than I am used to so I needed to do a little research.
Allulose: What a strange name for a naturally occurring sugar in things like figs, and raisins.
EPG: Also known as EPOGEE this is a plant based oil. Made from GMO free rapeseed oil or canola oil. I know a lot of people don’t like canola oil. I don’t like soybean oil so at a time when it was difficult to find an oil besides olive I relied on canola. I don’t use it as much now but I don’t freak out about it. At the moment.
Corn Fiber: Dietary fiber made from corn starch.
MCT Oil: This is a derivative of coconut oil and I happen to have some in my pantry.
When eating the GATSBY Chocolate I think I taste or feel a little bit of the fiber in my mouth but it’s not offputting or anything. Just something to know.
The chocolate is tasty and just a couple of squares are enough to satisfy my sweetooth for the evening.
I really would like to try some of GATSBY’s other products after this. How about you?
Other varieties include Sea Salt Extra Dark, Almond Dark, and Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups
