Guess what’s happening in the ALDI Nerd household? The hubs and I are back to watching our carbs. He is pretty awesome and hardcore about it. I’m a baby and still need my steel cut oats, fresh fruit, and coffee creamer. There are some sugars I just absolutely cannot live without, but I’ve been trying to eliminate a lot of the processed carbs in my diet. Any-who…I’ve been on the search for some low-carb/low-sugar treats for us to enjoy and discovered these Fit & Active 14 Calorie Bars on my last trip to ALDI.
Let me start by saying that artificial sweeteners are just not my bag. I would much rather eat a tiny amount something horribly sugary, than a bunch of “sugar-free” stuff. I have eaten my fair share of artificial sweeteners in the past, but something over the years has happened and my tastes have changed or something. I’m no longer a fan.
That being said, these 14 Calorie Bars really aren’t all that bad. They are a vanilla cream and fruit (strawberry, cherry, or orange) swirled frozen treat on a stick. It was refreshing, sweet, and didn’t give me too much of a “Splenda aftertaste”. Each bar contains:
- 14 Calories (surprise!)
- 0g fat
- 0g net carbs (3 Carbs – 3 Sugar Alcohols)
- No artificial colors
- All natural fruit flavors
If you are trying to watch your sugar intake for whatever reason, these may be a good option for you. While this isn’t exactly for me, I have a feeling my husband is really going to like them, and anyone else who regularly enjoys sugar-free products.
This ALDI Find comes in a 10-pack of assorted bars for only $2.29, while supplies last.
The ALDI Nerd Grade: C

- B = Good! I really like this!
- C = This is just okay. I like it, but it’s nothing new or exciting.
