ChocoRite Milk Chocolate Bars

Thanks to some fellow Diabetics I've learned about a low carb chocolate bar that doesn't spike blood sugar!  I finally managed to track down a box at my local Walgreens and am sampling them for myself!  My first taste of chocolate in I don't even know how long...was wonderful!  An hour later and my blood sugar hasn't really budged!  I think this may be my new favorite candy bar!

Each bar has basically 2g carbs because they contain fiber and erythritol (a sugar alcohol, which you can read more about here:

I'm going to keep testing these bars (there are 5 per box) and see if there are any noticeable differences to record, just to be sure.  But for a first time taste of a virtually carb-free/blood sugar safe chocolate bar, I'm hopeful!

EDIT:  8:05 PM
I had no insulin on board or other food in my system.  Here are the results of my hour long test:

6:49 PM
Glucometer:  103
Dexcom:  96
Ate 1 ChocoRite bar

7:53 PM
Glucometer:  118
Dexcom:  99

Dexcom showed steady numbers after eating the ChocoRite bar!

So if you ever want to get me chocolate, you can get me ChocoRite Milk Chocolate bars!
