The Best Store-Bought Low Carb Snacks - all keto-friendly and sugar free!

Whether you're on a road trip, going to work or visiting someone who just doesn't understand your way of eating, having a low carb snack with you at all times is a pretty good way to avoid hunger-led cheating. I've written on the subject of low-prep snacks before, but the difference with the list here is that these items can be bought from the store (so ZERO preparation)!

So if you're looking for low carb snacks to buy at the grocery store – read on!

Store Bought Low Carb Snacks

Meat Sticks (eg Slim Jims, Jack Links) – Easy to find in gas stations and supermarkets – these smoked sausages make a great low carb snack on the go! 

Pork Rinds – Available in ready-to-eat-bags, these crunchy snacks are fairly high in fat but do not contain any carbs! Often stocked at supermarkets and gas stations. Or you could go all fancy with gourmet Pork Clouds – available in flavors like Rosemary and Sea Salt, Garlic Thyme, and Habanero! Just always check the label as some brands add sugar.

Crunchy Cheese Snacks (eg Whisps, Moon Cheese) – Look out for Moon Cheese in Starbucks or buy an assortment pack from Amazon. Whisps can be found in grocery stores!

Moon Cheese

Olives – I've seen these in little cups (Olives to Go!) and also handy sachets (Mario). Both types offer different varieties of olives and all are pitted, with no brine!

Cheese and Salami Snacks – Look out for products from Fiorucci, Columbus, Primo, Hillshire and in-store brands like this one from Target!

Jerky – This rich and tasty snack is available in several types of meats and flavorings. Check the carb content – I’ve seen quite a range! Jerky isn’t the cheapest snack but it sure tastes good! Note – it is recommended that you refrigerate the bags after opening. Definitely check out this Zero Sugar Jerky that you can buy from Amazon!

Nuts – Pecans, walnuts, almonds and macadamias are some of the lowest in carbs (see this table for full details). Depending on the mixture, 100 calorie snack packs of nuts can contain as little as 1-2g net carbs per pack.

Low Carb Candy (eg Atkins) – You can buy all kinds of low carb goodies from the Atkins Nutritionals range from pharmacies and the diet section of grocery stores (usually near the protein powder!). Here are three of my favorites: Chocolate Candies (they really are a good substitute for M&Ms and there is also a peanut version!), Strawberry Almond Bar and Chocolate Chip Granola Bar

Hard Boiled Eggs – I've seen these in the chiller cabinet everywhere from Walgreens to CostCo! Often available in packs of two, six, or twelve – and of course they're zero carb!


Seeds – Sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds (also known as pepitas) are the most readily available. As usual, check the carb count but a very filling serving of ¼ cup is great for a snack – and often can be found in convenience stores too.

Roasted Seaweed Snacks – As well as being readily available in Asian supermarkets – many grocery stores stock them too! They also come in a variety of flavors! The wasabi style from Annie Chun's is one of my favorites!

Protein Bars (eg Quest) – These are available in some amazing flavors! Sold at The Vitamin Shoppe, diet sections of some supermarkets, and I've even seen them in Bed, Bath & Beyond! They are REALLY filling and I love getting a big variety pack and picking out my favorites!

Meat Snacks (eg Epic Bars) – Chicken, beef, bison, venison, bacon – this company takes meat snacks to a whole new level! Find them in Whole Foods or try the variety pack from Amazon.

Cream cheese is pretty low carb and peanut butter, stick with one tablespoon to satisfy a sweet craving 3-4 carbs!

Kind Bars!

I like the Kraft String Cheese as well as (most) Colby Jack options in a block. Both are 0 carbs, as well as many other cheeses.

Also, what is Moon Cheese?

Moon Cheese is a super crispy zero carb snack! You can find it on Amazon or in Starbucks!

Thanks for the suggestions! What do you think about sugar-free pudding? I find that to be a satisfying dessert.


Monday 12th of March 2018

Be careful of the Jello Sugar Free pudding mixes - "Sugar Free" and "No sugar added" don't always mean "no carbs" or "low in carbs".


Monday 12th of March 2018

Do you mean Sugar Free Jello? If you can buy them ready-made in cups that definitely works. But I've never seen sugar free Jello puddings ready-to-eat!

You show so called low carb but you don't show they are high in sugar , sugar alcohol plus high calories


Monday 12th of February 2018

Most people who follow a low carb diet don't also count calories. As for sugar alcohols, each low carb diet is different as to whether they are allowed or not (or sometimes down to the individual), so I thought I'd include all options so that people can choose which snacks suit them.
