Walden Farms Chocolate Syrup: A Low-Carb Diet Must for Chocoholics

Mechele R. Dillard's picture

How can a chocolate syrup with no calories, fat, gluten, sugars of any kind or, yes, carbs POSSIBLY taste this good?

Chocolate is a hard thing for many of us to cut back on—or eliminate altogether—when starting a low-carb diet. Chocolate syrups can be the first chocolate products to go, filled with sugar and, thus, carbs. Unsweetened cocoa powder can be an option for some, although it typically contains 2-3g carbs, depending on the brand. But, overall, many find it easier just to go cold turkey with the chocolate.

Walden Farms Chocolate Syrup is definitely an option.

Calorie-free, fat-free, gluten-free, sugar-free and, yes, carb-free, one might not have high hopes for this product. “What could it even taste like?” you might ask, being “free” of apparently everything that we associate with foods having taste. But, have taste this chocolate syrup does, and GREAT taste, at that! From the bottle’s label:

Ingredients: Triple Filtered Purified Water, Defatted Cocoa Powder, Caramel Color, Natural Flavors, Vegetable Fiber, Sucralose, Sea Salt, Vanilla Flavor, Lactic Acid, Xanthan Gum, Sodium Benzoate (To Preserve Freshness) *Contains trace calories.

Real Chocolate Flavor

It doesn’t seem like there is enough there to give this syrup the amazing, totally chocolaty taste it has, but Walden Farms, which has been creating innovative foods for healthy lifestyle choices for three generations, indicates their culinary and nutritional experts have “accomplished a remarkable achievement, developing the world’s only family of calorie free specialties! No calories, fat, carbs, gluten or sugars of any kind!”

They have certainly done that with this syrup.

I’ve tried sugar-free chocolate syrups in the past, and they just had that “artificial” taste—ick. But, not Walden Farms Chocolate Syrup! It simply tastes like a great chocolate syrup, with a smooth-but-just-thick-enough texture that pours just perfectly over berries or low-carb ice cream, and makes a great mix-in with almond milk.

As a self-proclaimed chocoholic, giving up chocolate treats was hard; Walden Farms Chocolate Syrup is definitely going to soften the blow from now on.

Look for Walden Farms Chocolate Syrup in your local grocery store (an Ingles in my area carries it in the ice cream toppings section), or go online at to read more about Walden Farms and view their entire line of no-carb products.
