These Keto Nuggets are Too Good - Resist the Temptation!

These Keto Nuggets are Too Good!

My friend and fellow writer on ReviewThisReviews, Margaret, has written an extensive series on Keto. If you're considering Keto as a way of eating, be sure to check out her helpful ongoing advice and tips. Her latest detailed and very informative article was on Keto Muffins.

Being a Keto warrior myself for about a year and a half, I have a bit of keto experience under my very loose belt now. This brief review is specifically about one particular Keto product I recently tried.

Here's a photo of it:




Am I Serious About Not Buying This?


For me, yes, lol. If you love a bit of crunch, not too much sweetness, and something the size of more significant popcorn pieces, these are calling your name.

I'm not a sweets person: I can take sweets or leave them. However, there's something about this Keto treat that challenged my self-control! My usual food discipline was weakened for the first time in a year and a half on Keto.

I've lost over 60 pounds to date, and honestly, I won't keep these Keto Nuggets in the house any longer. Isn't it funny that something is too good?

They contain just what the package says; dark chocolate, pecans, almonds, and hemp seed. I'm so grateful I ate the entire bag in three days because just typing this would send me looking for it.

The Keto Numbers on Keto Nuggets


According to the package, one serving of nuggets is 20 grams, that's about three-quarters of an ounce. That one serving is broken down as follows: 4 net carbs, 6 total carbs, 2 grams of fiber, 9 grams of fat, 2 grams of protein, and 120 calories. That's undoubtedly Keto friendly. However, stopping at one serving is the problem.

If you feel you can stop eating these at a couple ounces, go for it. I honestly struggled with limiting my intake, and I rarely struggle with food on Keto!

Would I Recommend These as a Keto Treat?


Absolutely. Keto Nuggets are fantastic; however, they lead me into temptation, and I had to deliver myself from food evil. For you, they may be just fine. Consider yourself warned, they're delicious.

I live in Canada and purchased these at our local Costco. I did check Amazon to see if they carried it (in case you wanted it, not me!); however, the Keto Nuggets they sell are higher in carbs and not precisely the same as the one I've featured here. They were an excellent price at Costco; on sale for about $10 - which is why I grabbed them. Tell me the store guru's don't know what they're doing.

  1. First of all Barbara, Congratulations on your accomplishments with Keto. I, like yourself, could never stop eating until the whole bag was gone. Although for someone who has the willpower this seems like a perfect product for that needed sweet treat.

  2. Oh Barbara, you know how much I value your input along with Margaret's input too. I found these at Costco and checked the package, read the ingredients and while still new to Keto, saw that they fit the bill (as far as carbs and calories go). So I bought them, got them home and had to hide them in the back of my refrigerator. It's the only place that I really have to go searching for them, otherwise, like you I would have eaten the whole bag as my reward for having gone grocery shopping! I love all your articles on Keto Eating and Living, they are a big help to me! Thank you!

  3. I am so proud of you, your determination, your unwavering commitment and your resistance. Simply not having something in the house and available to easily grab is probably the best way to avoid food temptation, however when there is a specific treat in the house that I love, I don't deny myself. I take out three of whatever it is (cookies come to mind) and nibble at them. For me, I have found that slowly eating a snack allows me to enjoy it without the horrific calorie cost of devouring the whole bag all at once, which I could do when working without even paying attention to what I am eating. I have no doubt these Keto Nuggets are delicious. Fortunately for me, I don't shop at Costco :)

    1. I was eating these exactly like that - the smallest bites, enjoying every little tiny bit, but I just went at it longer! lol

  4. Congratulations, Barbara, on finding, and resisting, a terrific keto treat. I have the same problem with a bag of chocolate covered peanuts - can't eat just ONE!:) Thanks for finding a delicious treat that fits the Keto Diet - and for the tips on eating it in 'moderation'(if you can). LOL.

  5. Barbara, thanks so much for sharing these delicious keto-friendly, crunchy, chocolate “rocks!” Do they taste similar to Ferrero Rocher chocolate hazelnut nuggets, one of my favorite candies from my BK (Before Keto) days?

    During the past 15 months on keto, I have occasionally made my own chocolate “rocks” with melted sugar-free chocolate (or part of a Francois Pralus 100% Le Criollo chocolate bar, which is unsweetened and has a 100% cacao content, yet has a much smoother taste and better mouthfeel than any other unsweetened chocolate I’ve tasted). I stir chopped nuts, seeds, and/or finely shredded unsweetened coconut into the melted chocolate, drop spoonfuls onto a baking sheet lined with nonstick foil, pop the baking sheet in the freezer for 1/2 hour to harden the chocolate “rocks,” then peel off the nonstick foil.

    You can make as little or as much of the mixture at a time as you’d like, so you could make just enough for one or two servings at a time, if you wish, and freeze them on the nonstick foil in a smaller cake pan, or even a nonstick foil-wrapped piece of cardboard, to save space in your freezer.

    1. OMG those sound delicious, I might try those, but do I dare? I don't crave them so I should just resist it lol. I buy 95% cocoa chocolate and eat two squares at a time for a treat and dip them in peanut butter while eating them - I think I'm too lazy to be sweets creative in the kitchen! I'd be in heaven at your house with your fantastic Keto recipes

  6. I love chocolate, and I love eating it without hurting my body. And these keto bites sound like a great way to get there!

  7. Sadly, it's hard for me to make it to Costco these days. I'd love to try these. Next time I try to get an online order ready I will see if I can find there. They sound delicious, but I don't have much self control when it comes to chocolate. I've eaten the entire supply we had from my last Costco visit and order.

  8. I would have the same problem... controlling the serving size. Here's to your self-control and Keto victories. You are showing us all how to be the best version of ourselves. Thanks for leading the way! Onward and upward...
