This Costco Snack Is Getting Mixed Reviews From Keto Dieters

Would you try this "keto" trial mix, or are there too many carbs?

There are few things that you can't find at Costco, even the seemingly impossible. The warehouse has a new Keto Trail Mix, and while some shoppers are excited to try it, others are skeptical.

Instagrammer @costco_doesitagain recently shared the Dark Chocolate & Coconut Keto Trail Mix from Hoody's to their more than 980,000 followers. The 29-ounce tubs cost $13.99, but the price isn't what has some people on the fence about it.

Inside you'll find a mix of almonds, coconut macaroon flavored almonds, dark chocolate drops, dried coconut, and macadamia nuts. One serving has 6 grams of net carbs, which is a little high for some who closely follow the high-fat, low-carb keto diet.

"It's yummy, but 6 [grams of] carbs is a lot for the serving size," one commenter said. Even with coconut and nuts, which are high in healthy fats, "this is not for the strict keto," another pointed out. But others aren't letting that keep them away from this "dangerous" (read: hard to resist!) food for chocoholics and snackers.

Trail mix hasn't always had a good reputation, even though it was created to keep your energy up while hiking on literal trails. Thanks to a variety of innovations, this snack can actually be pretty healthy as long as you make or select the right one to eat. For more on that, here are the 4 Best Trail Mixes at the Supermarket, and 6 to Avoid, according to a registered dietitian.
