The post Keto Snacks to Buy appeared first on Keto Summit.
Going Keto might seem like a huge transition at first. But the truth is you just need to create a few new habits and find a few good products to replace the ones you used to rely on.
Shopping for snacks is the perfect example. Most grocery stores – even the healthy ones – have an entire aisle dedicated to snacks. You remember that aisle, full of shiny bright colored crinkly bags promising unbeatable crunch and flavor.
Unfortunately most of those bags are full of problematic carbohydrates. Definitely not helpful on Keto.
The great news is there are snack items available today that won’t hijack your carb budget, and they’re available at your favorite stores. And because you probably won’t see a “low-carb” section in the snack department, we’ll also help you find them.
In the lists below, note that items containing dairy are marked with an askterisk (*). All nutritional information provided applies to a single serving, so be sure to check the package to see how many servings are included.
All the snacks listed below have less than 5g of net carbohydrate per serving – that’s total carbs minus fiber and sugar alcohols. We’ve also included links for pictures, nutritional information, and online shopping.
Keto Snacks to Buy at Walmart
Walmart is the grocery hub for many communities, and fortunately for us, they tend to keep up with popular food trends. This means some great Keto snacks could be as close as your nearest supercenter.
About 85% of Walmart locations are either classified as Supercenters or Neighborhood Markets, and commonly stock the Keto snacks below. The remaining 15% of Walmart stores are mainly Walmart Discount Stores, which carry fewer grocery items.
Because Walmart’s grocery department can be huge, we’ve organized these by where you’re likely to find them in the store.
Produce/Grab-and-Go Snacks at Walmart
Most Walmarts have a produce section near the door, including a small grab-and-go section for quick snacks and meals. This is great when you need Keto snacks on the go or you just want to get in and out of the store quickly.
- Ready-to-eat veggies – Marketside Cauliflower Florets (2g net carb), Marketside Broccoli Florets (4g net carb), Marketside Snow Peas (4g net carb), and Marketside Celery Sticks (1g net carb)

Protein Bars and Sweet Snacks at Walmart
You can usually find these items near the pharmacy or nutritional supplements. Because these can have an impact on insulin levels, consider making these an occasional indulgence rather than a daily staple.
