Not the only one. I think it's totally vile.

My daughter eats Special K, and we have both kinds. I just looked at them, and neither have trans-fats. They both have sugar, including HFCS, but the low-carb one has pretty small amounts. If it gets protein into my daughter in the morning, I'm happy with it. (I haven't tasted it myself, as I can't eat wheat.)

Because of the wheat thing, and that I avoid SA's (except erythritol) and transfats like the plague, I haven't tried many specific low-carb products.

From a taste and texture perspective, Dannon's "Carb Control" yogurt is pretty good. The Yoplait LC yogurt, on the other hand, was more than twice as expensive and that whipped-mousse texture they're trying for went down more like gelatin than yogurt, which turned me right off.

I dig the Reese's LC PB cups, actually. I thought they were very good.

I can tolerate either, I like the chocolate though.

but the milk is fine to use when making ice cream and cooking, no?

I agree with this.

Atkins pastas....... Unflavored cardboard! No matter how long you cook it, it is still hard and chewy.

I bought the Pesto one and thought I would die after eating 2 bites. I let it sit while I made something else and it just sucked up all of the sauce. I want to try Dreamfield's but I'm scared.

Thumbs up Don't be afraid of Dreamfield's...

I agree... Atkins pasta tastes (and looks) like rubber bands. Dreamfields is like regular pasta in taste, texture and appearance, nothing to worry about there.

I've also tried and thrown away, KETO oatmeals, Cheeters crackers/flatbreads, Walden Farms salad dressings, and all LC SlimFast products.
