First there was low carb Oreos, now there are low carb Twinkies (OK, OK, they aren't really Twinkies because they are made by a different company, but it is the first thing I thought of.) I picked these up at my local Market Basket. I hardly ever look at the cake section anymore, but I managed to find these one day when I was looking for some desserts for the kids at the church.
Now, these aren't the best things for you. They have maltitol, they don't have whole flour, and they have lots of chemicals.
However, they come in single serving wrappers, unlike some of the former Entenman's products, and I find that single serving wrappers go a long way towards keeping me from over eating. And if you need a dessert quickly and once in a while, you can take one of these cakes, and put some berries and whipped cream on top. My sister-in-law's family came down, and everyone agreed that this dessert tasted great. I'm sure anyone would think it was adequate.
I went to the web site, and they advertise the fact that you can find products in your area, but the Sensable Sugar Free products are not available on the pull down menu. Furthermore, it isn't updated properly because I couldn't get my local Market Basket to show up, and I know they carry them. You can order these sugar free products via the mail on their website though: 14 packages for $23.95. You get the whole product line though. The only ones I have tried are the Finger Cakes because they have fewer carbs than some of the other products.
Whatever you do, don't eat these often. And of course, as you know, it is better to not eat them at all -- but we all fall off the wagon sometimes.
