I don’t know about you, but when I think about picking up keto-friendly or low-carb snacks and drinks, the Dollar Tree is not a store that immediately comes to mind. I’m usually more of a Central Market or HEB gal, as you may know if you’ve seen my keto Cream of Asparagus Soup Recipe
To be honest, I tend to associate the Dollar Tree with those amazing DIY projects I see plastered all over Pinterest. Am I the only one who will pin them, but never find the time to actually complete them? Ugh. I can dream, though. Speaking of Pinterest, I recently launched an account for my keto recipes, so this is my shameless plug for you to follow my boards. You can do so here.
During this past holiday season, it seems like I found myself in a different shopping center like every other day. This led to me wandering into a Dollar Tree one afternoon to kill a few minutes before my next errand. As I roamed the aisles, I was pleasantly surprised at just how many keto and low-carb snacks and drinks they had stocked. Many of us are on the go daily, and it’s nice to be able to pick up something quick to keep you going. I thought I’d share a few finds with you all just in case you’re ever shopping and hangry and there’s a Dollar Tree nearby. The best part is that each snack is only a buck!
Jerky is a keto staple, and for good reason. It’s usually low or no-carb, and packed with protein. Here are two options I found:
BUTTERBALL ALL NATURAL TURKEY JERKY | TENDER CUT/SPICY THAI SEASONED
- 6 Net Grams of Carbs per Bag
TRAIL’S BEST PORK JERKY | SWEET & SPICY BBQ SEASONED
- 8 NET GRAMS OF CARBS PER BAG
Nuts & Seeds
If you’re looking for a meatless way to get some fat & protein in on-the-go then nuts and seeds are a great option. Just be mindful of serving sizes if you’re looking to stay in ketosis. Nuts and seeds can be easy to overindulge on.
DAVID JUMBO SUNFLOWER SEEDS | RANCH FLAVORED
- 5 Net Grams of Carbs per Package
NATURE’S HOUSE PEANUTS | ROASTED & SALTED
- 1 Net Grams of Carbs per Serving
ISLAND CHOICE SUNFLOWER KERNELS | LOW SODIUM
- 4 Net Grams of Carbs per Serving
JIF TO-GO PEANUT BUTTER
- 8 Net Grams of Carbs per Cup
I’m a cheese loving gal, as you saw in my Zucchini and Yellow Squash Au Gratin recipe. Luckily, cheese is fair game on keto.
TRAIL’S BEST SNACKS TO GO | CHEDDAR CHEESE, MINI JERKY STICKS, AND SUNFLOWER KERNELS
- 3 Net Grams of Carbs per Package
ALEJANDRO CHEDDAR CHEESE DIP | JALAPENO FLAVORED
- 4 Grams of Carbs per Serving
Tea is one of my favorite things in the world. My favorite is passion tea. I even crafted a keto-friendly Passion Tea cocktail. I didn’t see any passion tea at the Dollar Tree, but I did see an apple & cranberry tea, along with a couple of other drink options.
SPARKLING ICE | MULTIPLE FLAVORS
- 0 Carbs per Bottle
PROPEL ELECTROLYTE WATER | MULTIPLE FLAVORS
- 0 Carbs per Bottle
TEVIVE BLACK TEA | APPLE & CRANBERRY
- 0 Carbs per Bag
BRIM’S PORK RINDS | BARBECUE FLAVORED
- 2 Grams of Carbs per Serving
BRECKENRIDGE FARMS STUFFED OLIVES
- Less than 1 Carb per Serving
VANCAMP’S ALBACORE TUNA
- 0 Grams of Carbs per Can
Next time you’re shopping, considering picking up one of these snacks to get you through to your next meal. That way you’re not left hungry, irritated, and tempted to pick up fries from the drive-thru. I’m just speaking from experience, y’all.
