* I actually like the taste better than the Eat Well Be Well Chips. The larger chips make them a little more difficult to work with but I find 1 or 2 very short pulses in a food processor and they perfect chocolate chip cookie size. Once they are baked, I never have anyone complain about the shape. :) They store in the freezer nicely also.
* I would have to agree that they are not as good as Eat Well Be Well (why oh why did they have to go out of business!) but they are OK. The taste is good, but the chips are too big. They are huge discs you have to chop up to a reasonable size in order to use. I like to bake with them, they melt like "real" chocolate chips and they do taste like semisweet morsels.
* These aren't as good as Eat Well Be Well chocolate, but since they went out of business what can you do. Anyway, these chips are good, but mine came kind of smooshed and melted so I had to break them up with a hammer to have that mini size. They are very good in baked stuff - like peanut butter cookies made w/ Carbalose flour - my husband loves these and he hates splenda. Anyway, definitely worth buying, make sure to freeze them for longer life.
* What a disappointment! These are NOT mini-chips but large disks. They are bitter and do not melt very well. Heat changes the texture to grainy. They are a poor substitute for the "Eat Well be Well" that are discontinued. Better to buy a semi-sweet chocolate bar and chop it up than to deal with these.
* I really like these chips. They're big, yes, but seem like "real" chocolate morsels. I had a handful with a few pine nuts last night as a snack, and they really hit the spot for my chocolate craving.
No wonky bathroom stuff, either. No sugar alcohols, all fiber. This works for me!
I've used them in baking as well, and found them to work just like the real thing.
* I much preferred the Eat Well, Be Well brand chocolate chips. I curse the day they went out of business. These are an acceptable substitute, but they are much too big. They are not mini chip sized at all.
If Dixie Diners Club would rework them, I think they could be a big success, because until then it's just as convenient to buy any other sugar free chocolate and put it in the food processor.
* These are not very good. Russel Stover made the best sugar-free chocolate chips, but stopped making them long ago. When I could no longer find those, I found a great mini-chip replacement on this website - but those are not made anymore either. Then, I found the Eat Well Be Well chips on this site that other reviewers have mentioned liking. Those were decent, though not as good as the other two. Alas, those are no longer made either! Why are sugar-free chocolate chips so hard to find? These Carb Counter Chips don't even compare to the other three brands and they are much too large (even though the package advertises "mini" chips). Really not very good, but I still use them because that's all I can find. I hear these are being discontinued as well, so I am on the lookout for yet a fourth brand to start purchasing. I'm giving these a rating of "2" simply because they are better than using no chips at all. Very sad.
