Best Sugar Free Desserts: Chocolate Box of Lurve

by on Friday, February 3rd, 2012

It may be with a groan that you decide to limit your sugar intake, and I’m right there with you. Luckily there are really healthy and beautiful some role models (with rockin’ bodies of course – think: Yvonne Strahovski) and enough qualified doctor-y people on TV reminding me how bad sugar is that I’ve been making a slow decline in (real) sugar consumption. So, I decided that I would try sugar free chocolate. And that’s when I came to the Illinois Nut and Fantasia Chocolate Company. Surprisingly, they make all sorts of sugar free candy (taffy, truffles, gummi’s), including sugar free chocolate. Since I often hate cooking, pre-packaged stuff is right up my alley as the best sugar free desserts around.

Side Note – Celebrities Who Don’t Eat Sugar:

  1. Selma Blair (nor gluten)
  2. Gwyneth Paltrow
  3. Kelly Osbourne
  4. Yvonne Strahovski (though she had a birthday at the Sugar Factory)
  5. Jessica Biel (while working)
  6. Jewel

Leaving sugar behind is sad, so opt for high-quality stuff. I got to sample the Sugar Free Mixed box of Sugar Free Chocolates. And there were several strong winners in this box according to my reputable taste buds.

Here is what there was:

  • Sugar Free Chocolate Peppermint Patties
  • Sugar Free Chocolate Truffles
  • Sugar Free Peanut Butter Cups
  • Sugar Free Peanut Butter Squares
  • Sugar Free Amaretto Truffles
  • Sugar Free Caramel Squares

By and far, I loved the Sugar Free Peanut Butter Cups and Sugar Free Caramel Squares the most. The PB cups were the perfect shape, size and texture and I would gladly eat a box of these. There are also Peanut Butter squares, which are not quite as good and who knows why! The Caramel Squares have a different constancy than most caramel that you know, but they are chewy (a little softer than you’d think) and really good. There was the addition of salt on the bottom, which was really delicious. (Salty + Sweet is a good combo and you know it – or are you going to pretend you have never mixed peanuts with a bag of M&M’s?! Now that’s what I call gourmet baking! …Oh, maybe not? Heh!)

I didn’t love the peppermint patties because I don’t like any kind of peppermint patty. The chocolate truffles were okay, but I also don’t like the taste of amaretto so the green striped dessert was really pretty but also not for me.

This was a great way to taste an assortment. I definietly recommend the sugar free peanut butter cups and the sugar free caramel squares. If you like those other flavors, you’d likely enjoy them too.

Illinois Nut and Fantasia Chocolate makes gluten free candy, kosher candy, vegan, sugar free candy and organic candy. Whatever you’re voluntarily or not so voluntarily avoiding in your food, they’ve found a way to get it to you anyway.

And we have a giveaway!
