Erythritol is a 0 calorie & 0 carb sweetener and sugar replacement used to add sweetness to just about anything! It’s a part of the "sugar alcohol" family, which means it’s a naturally derived extract from fruits and plants and passes through your body, untouched, much like fiber. Because it’s passed through, erythritol does not affect blood sugar in most people and has 0 net carbs. It's a great option for diabetics, low carb dieters and anyone looking to cut calories without sacrificing sweetness!
Tasteaholics' Verdict: Our #1 go-to sweetener is, and will always be, erythritol! Its versatility and flavor match that of sugar, all while being so much better for you! A keto diet is not complete without dessert - that's the beauty of it. Add erythritol anywhere you, or your gift recipient, would sugar. Satiate that sweet tooth, guilt-free.

Crock-Pot Slow Cookers make cooking easy, but the Crock-Pot Cook and Carry Slow Cooker makes it easy to get your dish from here to there.

Tasteaholics' Verdict: keto or not, a kitchen scale is a no-brainer! Whether your special someone wants to lose weight or just become a better baker, they need a kitchen scale. It makes life easier and food taste better. They'll be able to follow recipes quickly without needing to do crazy calculations and conversions in their head. It's great!
Ketone strips provide a fast, easy way of testing urine for the presence and concentration of ketones (acetoacetate). They are the most inexpensive way to measure & monitor if your body is in ketosis. When you expose a ketone strip to your urine, the pad on the stick will change color if ketones are present and the severity of the color change will indicate the approximate concentration of ketones in your blood.
Tasteaholics' Verdict: for beginners especially, you'll want a visual guide to let you know whether you're eating properly or not. These ketone test strips tell you in 15 seconds if you're in ketosis or not! It's a super cheap way to help get your keto diet off the ground faster. One of these bottles (100 strips!) will last anyone a long time!
ChocZero uses fair-trade premium select cocoa beans roasted carefully to keep their flavor then sweetens it with our exclusive monk fruit and fiber blend that contains no sugar alcohols instead of using sugar. The end result is a chocolate that has all of the taste of other artisan chocolates with zero of the regret.
Tasteaholics' Verdict: from first bite, we fell head over heels for ChocZero. It goes beyond healthy... it's the best chocolate we've ever put in our mouths and to top it off - it's sugar-free and sugar alcohol-free too!
