    1 week into my 2 week holidays back home in the UK. Having fun browsing the supermarkets / shops for various low carb snacks. Just thought I'd share a photo of the 'snacks' sitting in my kitchen cupboard.

    Thought it would be fun to see photos of your low carb snacks in your cupboards

    Wow, I didn't know Lindt did 99%! I often get 90% or 85%. How do you get on with the 99?

    What's that in the bottom left corner from the Dominican Republic?

    Haven't tried the 99% yet - saw it today in Waitrose - thought I'd give it a try - back of packaging indicates 8g of carb per 100g.

    'Dominican Republic' is the name of a 100% chocolate from Hotel Chocolat - expensive posh treat chocolate 35g for ~ £3.50 ish.

    I woudl skip the Mr Pork - to much additives but take a look in Waitrose and go for "awfully posh" cracklings, just pork and salt.

  5. Nice collection.

    I don't have a tidy cupboard of snacks :bag: just a poly bag of nuts and 85% chocolate. Other snacks are cheese, berries and vegi jelly in the fridge and low carb muffins, nut balls and more berries in the freezer.

    There's a bar of 85% dark chocolate but my favourite thing at the moment is a bag of wasabi peanuts mixed with a bag of chilli peanuts and a bag of cashews very moreish .
    I thought about mixing some pistachios in but being a tight fisted Yorkshireman I object to paying for the shells.
