The purpose of this article is to support our UK keto friends who supply some pretty darn good sugar-free chocolate bars and we would like to share our review of some of our favourite low-carb brands that you may have heard of or you might want to try out after reading this article.
Our list below will highlight six keto chocolate brands and what they have to offer and of course our review.
Montezuma: Low-carb, recyclable packaging, vegan options, gluten-free, organically grown.

If you're obsessed with rich, dark chocolate, this chocolate bar range is made for you! You can find these gems in your local organic grocery stores, if you prefer to try one product at a time we would recommend you do this first if it is your first purchase of the brand, they have a plethora of chocolate bar flavours, too many to talk about but it is always nice to have a good variety to choose from, consisting of vegetarian and vegan options surely there's a flavour for all parties. The packaging is very alluring and immediately gets you excited to try them out. This brand just oozes quality and you get a very generous amount of chocolate per 90g, it also tastes very rich and luxurious, if you like dark chocolate. However it should be noted that not all the options available here will be Keto friendly so keep an eye on the carb counts!

Black Sesame, Crème Brûlée, Earl Grey, White Chocolate and Strawberry - these are a few of the delicious flavours that we found available on the Ketobabe Chocolate website and each of them delivered the exact flavour they promised. They were all delicious!
In return for an honest review, we received a small selection of Ketobabe Chocolates. How could we resist when they included a selection of delightfully packaged bonbons? Just to confirm, we have gone back and bought several more of these chocolates since we enjoyed them so much!
Some chocolates are more low carb than keto, so eat the ones with white chocolate sparingly (they are about 6 Net Carbs), but the others have less carbs so feel free to treat yourself to chocolate once in a while!

Flavours: Milk chocolate, Dark chocolate, white chocolate.
Carb counts: 22g per 100g - 12 per 55g bar
Net carbs: Just 2g of net carbs per bar
Sugar replacers: Erythritol
This brand is nothing short of luxury, you can taste the rich ingredients in their chocolate bar options and the packaging is thoughtful, and for the price of a bundle, you get a healthy amount of chocolate that should last you a while. The £14.99 bundle will give you the full range of keto chocolate including 1 dark chocolate, one salted white chocolate, and two milk chocolate bars. We didnt really enjoy the white chocolate.
Our favourite was the salted white chocolate as it’s not something you see often as a sugar-free option. All the keto bars tasted flavourful, not overly sweet, and just melts in your mouth. Each box only contains 2g of net carbs! This is perfect for us as we also aim to keep our portion sizes this low in carb counts.

Big Fat Stupid offers some beautifully designed, thick, and chunky chocolate bars, hard to believe they are low in carbs and contain no added sugars!
We liked that this company makes chocolate bars with nuts, it's not everyone's preference but we thought it was a nice touch and something different from the other brands we’ve tried. We tried the peanut and raspberry dark milk bar and the rhubarb and custard milk chocolate bar, it tasted just like a regular chocolate bar in our opinion. The flavours were very nice, not as sweet as it looked but very filling and one bar would last you a while when you get a little craving for some chocolate.

Pure Heavenly offers vegan chocolate bars that come in a range of exciting and unique flavours. We think pure heavenly wins in this category, each flavour was exactly what it says on the packet, you could taste all the richness of the flavoured ingredients and the flavour options were quite impressive and creative. If you get the 30g bars make sure to stock up because they are quite small but just enough that it won’t make you crave a larger portion because of its richness in flavour.
The chocolate bars are 100% vegan and free from gluten, wheat, soy, and palm oil, the founder was inspired to create this brand for his family's health when he was tired of his diet causing him fatigue, and health issues. Impressively the Pure Heavenly brand was offered an investment in an episode of Dragons’ Den. The contract did not fall through but the brand remains a favourite for many people who seek no added sugar treats that contain high-quality ingredients and are in support of eco-friendly packaging and fair trade.
Price range: £1.99 (per bar) -£7.99 x 4 (Bundles)
Flavours: Dark keto chok, Hazelnut keto chok, Orange keto choc, Silky cacao.
Carb counts: 3.5g per bar
Net carbs: <4g Net carb/serving
Sugar replacers: Lucuma powder
We tried the silky cacao and the hazelnut keto chok, and according to the ingredients, they are some of the healthiest chocolate bars on the market.
Raw Gorilla is also organic and paleo and the chocolate bars are powered by superfoods such as lucuma powder which is an ingredient they use to sweeten their chocolate. The creator of Raw Gorilla wanted to supply a product that did not contain additives or preservatives, a product that was hand-made and wholesome while tasting delicious.
The chocolate bar range is not extensive but this brand does offer a range of keto chocolate products for everyone to enjoy. Products come in the recyclable compostable film, the bars are quite small but rich and very chocolatey.
And there you have it, our list of keto chocolate bars that we recommend for anyone who wants to kick sugar to the curb and maintain a healthy low-carb lifestyle. It has been a pleasure trying out the chocolate bars and we will be purchasing again!
