Aldi Low Carb Elevation by Millville Carb Conscious Bars

I recently saw a review of the Elevation by Millville Carb Conscious bars! Do you Aldi?  I don’t usually but figured we would stop in and pick them up.  I have tried to like Aldi, but I just don’t love it, it is like a cult though – people LOVE IT and swear by it.  I hate the whole cart thing, I know, I know you get your quarter back, but you must have a quarter to start with!  I hate the no bags thing, I know, I know I should bring my own, but sometimes I don’t.  I hate the whole cash thing, I know, I know – they are keeping prices low!  All of these things just annoy me.  I also hate that you never know what you will find, and that each store is different.  Wait, Kerry are you going to be positive in this post?  Yes, Yes I am.  Russell and I decided to pop in after dinner the other night and I picked up a few things, including these bars!

My store had 6 flavors.  I chose 4 of them.  I left behind Coconut Almond and Cranberry Almond.  I don’t like coconut, and Russell doesn’t like cranberries….I will go back and get them though for us to try them, now that we tried these others.

I picked up Caramel Chocolate Peanut Nougat, Caramel Double Chocolate, Peanut Butter Fudge, and Caramel Nut (this flavor isn’t on their website – so not sure why?).

I just noticed that some are called: Light Meal, Endulgent Treat and Breaktime bars!

Russell and I tried 2 on the first night and split both bars.

I should have thought to give you some perspective on how small they were.  I took one bite, and then another and that was about 1/2 way.  Then passed it on to Russell.

We both really liked it.  This would for sure cure a sweet tooth or just a I NEED something tooth.  OR, have on hand when people around you will be eating yummy things that you are choosing to not eat!  I would for sure buy again!

Again, I took 2 bites and passed it on.  Very good.  I would buy again.

Night 2 – we picked the last 2 to try.

Caramel Double Chocolate Crunch

2 bites, and passed.  This was both of our favorites, that isn’t to say the others weren’t good but this for sure stood out as the favorite!  Russell said some of the others had a diet bar after taste sort of, I didn’t notice that.  I would buy this one again!

So, as you can see they range from 130-170 calories per bar and 2 to 3 grams NET Carbs (Carbs minus Fiber and Sugar Alcohols).

I recommend heading to Aldi to give these a try.  They do have malitol in them, which a lot of people stay away from.

I have no idea what I paid for them!  I will update with that info.  I do know that I bought Olive Oil cooking spray, these 4 boxes of bars, a think of chipotle peanuts, and a big bag of walnuts and spent around $20!  So they aren’t expensive!!

Have you tried these?  Will you try these?  Do you have any other items you want me to be sacrificial and try out?  What are your must haves from Aldi?

    We recently discovered these bars and love them. They are a little less than a $1 per bar, which is better than the official Atkins bars. And I completely agree, the Caramel Double Chocolate is the BEST! They are so good when you need a smidge of sweetness to curb a craving or to make you through til dinner.

    On a side note, all Aldi’s I have been to have begun to accept credit cards, not just cash or debit. That might convert you to the Aldi cult 🙂 Their produce is like nothing else! Great place to stock up on low-carb diet necessities!

      Chelsea – Thank you so much for your comment! Interesting about the credit cards – I will have to check the 2 near me. They are both a bit out of the way from where I typically am when I go shopping – but my stash of these bars has dwindled to 1 box left! Starting to panic a little!
      I have since picked up the the Atkins equivalent to the Caramel Double Chocolate, and honestly prefer the Aldi version!

    We just recently got Aldi here in Gainesville. I haven’t visited yet but I have heard they have great deals!

      We have one nearby but it’s not my favorite. I go in there every now and then just to double check that I’m not missing anything major! -Crystal
