Diablo Sugar Free Treats

Everywhere in the world there are tensions – economic, political, religious. So we need chocolate.-Alain Ducasse

#2 Want to enjoy chocolate without all the guilt from the high sugar content, or have food restriction woes thanks to diabetes? Diablo are the first low-sugar, diabetes-sensitive confectionery range and one that isn’t just a substitute for those who need it as the products taste pretty amazing. 

Diablo’s range has no added sugar but doesn’t compromise on the flavour; most ‘healthier’ products tend to whether that’s by taste or texture. I can vouch for the majority of the range as I was lucky enough to sample a variety of delights from the brand and am glad I had the chance after previous negative experiences with diabetic chocolate. 

#3 SUGAR FREE CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES £1.85 

As the cold weather creeps upon us cookies are the essential hot drink dippers and what better way to feel less guilty by stocking up on sugar free ones. The texture of these cookies have a slight crunch and a nice burst of chocolate chips, however despite popular opinion I am not a huge biscuit or cookie fan so for that reason I didn’t enjoy them as much as the other sugar free offerings. With that said they are definitely improved with a hot mug of tea for dunking!

NO ADDED SUGAR MILK CHOCOLATE £1.75

For me the most delicious treat of the range was the generously sized milk chocolate bar. At first bite you are presented with a slight bitterness which then develops into a smooth and creamy flavour. The bars are sold at 85g per packet with 30g coming in at 151 calories; this is one for sharing if you are trying to watch your weight, but if not is a delightful treat to wrap up warm in bed with whilst watching Netflix (you know you want to).

 NO ADDED SUGAR CREAM FILLED CHOCOLATE WAFERS 100G £2.50

Who doesn’t like indulging in a Time Out bar from time to time? If so then you are in for a treat as the Diablo wafers are a perfect sugar free alternative. The chocolate flavour is just as creamy and divine as the bar, but features a moreish crisp wafer that releases chocolate cream when bitten into. These are definitely a TV session accompaniment!

#5 NO ADDED SUGAR CRANBERRY AND RASPBERRY MUESLI BAR

APRICOT MUESLI BAR

— Both 65p

Breakfast cereals and bars are notorious for being packed with sugars even the deceptively ‘healthy’ brands; luckily with Diablo you can be sure that they really have no added sugar. Both flavours have a delicious, crunchy texture with bursts of intense fruit flavours, however for me the apricot bar is my favourite by far- the cranberry bar reminds me of a throat lozenger.

NO ADDED SUGAR HAZELNUT CHOCOLATE SPREAD £2.50

One of Pete and I’s favourite treats has to be chocolate spread on hot pancakes, waffles and whatever else we can dig out from the cupboards! This is a nicely balanced nutty spread which just like the wafers reminds me of a Time Out bar. Despite the no added sugar the spread is surprisingly sweet and indulgent. 

Overall I had a remarkably positive experience of Diablo’s range and have to admit I was genuinely surprised. Once you find the products that suit your tastes and preferences you are onto a winner; my recommendations are the apricot bar, the chocolate bar and spread if you are looking for a sugar free starting point.

  1. Ooo these looks delicious!! There’s so much hidden sugar in products these days it’s awful, a great way to still help you enjoy sweet treats though 🙂 xxx

  2. I’ve been a bit more conscious about how much sugar I eat since it was in the news that we all eat way too much, so I really should check this brand out! I love the quote btw 🙂
