I've seen chocolate and vanilla readily available at Loblaw's and IGA, but the chocolate is SO good that it is sometimes more difficult to find because they are often sold out. Guess you can tell that chocolate is my favourite flavour

The Breyer's doesn't have that sugar alcohol or splenda aftertaste that I find a lot of other low-carb desserts have (IMO). I've passed the chocolate off to non-low-carbers and they didn't really notice that it wasn't regular ice cream

thanks again, jrdomino for putting the site together!

I was just wondering from anyone who has bought the DaVinci syrups from Q-Bec Coffee Services in Lasalle -- can you just go there, or do you call in an order and pick it up or do they deliver? I'm thinking about getting some and it is a very slight detour on my way home from work.

Hi brpssm,

Usually, I just go there and see what they have in stock. They have a good selection of flavours but not always the same flavours. Be sure to take the sugar-free version, they have both the regular and the sugar free.

The last time I went there, they had Dulce de Leche flavour, it was great! I am getting a little low on that, I need to go soon.

What flavours are you trying this time?

Thanks for responding and thanks for the tip that some are not sugar-free, that would have been bad!

I'm not sure what I am going to get since I've never tried them before. I was thinking of trying the vanilla one and maybe a hazelnut or something like that. Do you have any suggestions??

No, I didn't make it there yet(!).

Does anyone have a suggestion for a good, low-carb bread that is affordable (i.e. not the health food store's $8/loaf!)? I was buying the Bon Matin Low-Carb bread but it has disappeared from the shelves where I live. Does anyone know if it is still available maybe in or around the city, or did they stop making it?

As a replacement (because I really don't eat a lot of bread), I've been having 1/2 slice of the Bon Matin Double Son bread, 7g per 1/2 slice. My friend said the Bon Matin Flaxseed is even lower in carbs, so I'm going to try that one next, but I think both of them have sugars in them, so if anyone knows of a good specifically low-carb bread I'd love to hear about it!

Thanks Beebuzz. My friends told me about the flaxseed as well, I looked at the nutritional info on the weekend and will probably buy it this week...it's 11g total, 2 fibre. Right now I am slicing a double son in half, so it is about 5.5g net, 9g might be too high, but I guess I could half the flaxseed as well.

I saw the low-cal bread but I found that for the size of the slice as compared to the double son, it was high in carbs. maybe I read the label wrong...

At least there are options, and probably not having access to too many of the low-carb foods is good for us in the long run anyway.
