    Hi,

    I've snacked on fridge raiders. Is the cheddar & chive dip part of a "meal deal" style combo?

    I'm with you on that, tooth shattering with a slight taste of rancid fat - what's not to like.

    Ooops to the cashews, about 10 a day but will stop that now.
    Sigh, hazelnuts and pistachios it is then. I'm guessing that honey roasted peanuts are out too.

    I barely dare say it, but those pistachio's are 15 grams per 100, should that be more than you care to consume... (Granted, they weigh next to nothing without the shell, and you eat them slower than other nuts.)

    Pecans are nice (salted even better), and macadamia's too...

    No didn’t see it on a meal deal, the dip was just on the fridge isle away from the fridge raiders. I can’t stop eating it

    I try not to have snacks apart from a square or two of dark chocolate with my morning coffee. When my resolve is weakened by alcohol, I like cheese or any sort of nuts, but although the carbs might be low, it is easy to have an extra meals worth of calories without noticing.

    Protein hazelnut butter chocolate bars 0.2 grams of sugar. Holland & Barrett or sainsburys. So worth it

    Cashews are one of the higher carb nuts. Brazil’s or pecans are my go to’s

    I keep trying but I just can’t like olives or shrimp (prawn/seafood). Such a shame as it would open up so many more choices
