I finally found 85% dark Lindt chocolate and it was at a neighborhood Kroger.  4 squares are 8g carbs.  So, I ate just 2 squares as a dessert after a cheese puff "sandwich" made with 2 very thin slices of deli roast beef and Smart Balance mayo.  Two hours later my reading was 87.  Boy, am I pleased.  So I had a snack to celebrate.
 
Snack: 1/4 cup of natural yogurt and some of DaVinci's raspberry syrup mixed with whipping cream.  Can't wait to see what that does to the blood sugar.  The syrup is no sugar, no carbs and no calories.  I found the bottle at Marshall's of all places for just $4.99.  It's much more expensive on the Websites. 
 
I think I have too much time on my hands here.  eyes

WOW ... good stuff, Lanie!!!

I'll have to look at that chocolate as well. I have the Davinci's hazelnut syrup and it's good too. I might try that with a squirt of whipped cream for "dessert."

Ok, after the snack of yogurt, da Vinci syrup and somes spoons of whipping cream, my blood sugar was 97, so this is another snack that on my 'good' list.

Oh Kris, I feel like I've broken a secret code!  I've had so many disappointments with high readings after some kinds of foods that when I find something my body can deal with, I feel on top of the world.  I'm not kidding.

I do the 'yogurt parfaits' too.  If you like citrus- True Lemon, True Lime and True Orange packets (I buy them at Kroger) add a nice flavor to the yogurt. I do one of the packets with a couple of drops of stevia to 5 oz of yogurt. I shave my Lindt square and add whipped cream- it is so tasty on a hot evening.  
 
My Sam's club carries the DaVinci syrups and World Market carries Torrani (sugar free Irish cream is delish).
 
Walden farms makes chocolate and marshmallow toppings (carb free, fat free, calorie free) - that I sometimes mix up when I'm craving chocolate marshmallow icecream.

Thanks for the tips, Sandy.  Those parfaits are especially good in the hot weather for sure.
