Low-carb ice cream is hard to come by, and finding one that tastes good and is affordable isn’t an easy feat. I was thrilled to come across Twisted Healthy Treats Lick Keto Bars, which are both low-carb and sugar-free, perfect for me and my blood sugar management.
This Australian company was kind enough to send me their Lick Keto Bars to try out at no cost, so that I could try this low-carb heal (as a person living with type 1 diabetes) and share my experience with our community. I did not receive additional compensation for this review and all opinions are my own.
Who They Are
Twisted Healthy Treats is a company that was started by a mother looking for treats that didn’t come loaded with artificial flavors and sugar. Since her background was in Food Science and Technology, it only made sense that she took her expertise and put it to good use. Today Twisted Healthy Treats is all female-run company, manufacturing in a state of the art facility. All of their products contain:
- All-natural ingredients
- No sugar or low-sugar
- Natural based sweeteners
Here’s what the company is offering today:
- Twisted low-calorie frozen yogurt in a variety of flavors, including Watermelon & Mango, Chocolate & Coconut, Strawberry & Vanilla Bean, and Chocolate & Vanilla Bean. These products are not recommended for those aiming for keto or perfect blood sugar lines, but they can be a nice treat, with around 20 grams of carbs!
- Licks Frozen Juice Bars have no sugar added and only contain about 7.5g of carbs. They come in Pink Lemon Twist, Mango Delish Twist, and Berry Buzz, and all are made with 99% real fruit juice.
- Licks Frozen Ice Cream Bars in Rich Chocolate and Vanilla Latte, which contain only 2 grams of net carbs.
It has been such a wonderful feeling to know I can release up my freezer and have a quick healthy choice that can satiate my sweet tooth without impacting my blood sugars or my weight loss efforts. The Lick Keto Bars are dense, unlike many other low-carb frozen treats that leave me wanting more. They have a great creamy consistency, and each bite is packed with flavor. Each pack comes with 4 bars, and prices vary according to retailers – at Costco you can buy a large pack of mini-cups for less than per cup. Check their website for locations in both Australia and the United States.
As a person living with type 1 diabetes, I wanted to see how the Keto bars affected my blood sugar. I decided not to take any insulin beforehand and watch what happened. I started the experiment at a blood sugar level of 115 mg/dL and watched carefully to see if there was a spike or even just a slow rise. 2 hours later, my blood sugar was stable and coasting at 102. It really is rare to find something enjoyable that I don’t even have to take insulin for. I am sold! I highly recommend this product to anyone looking for a delicious dessert that is nutritious and blood sugar-friendly!
