Looking for a better snack chip? Try one of our 18 winners or finalists that are dietitian-approved and taste-tested. We conducted blind taste panels with more than 100 people, including people with diabetes, and awarded the top-rated pretzels, flavored chips, cheesy chips, plain potato chips, BBQ chips, and corn chips our Diabetic Living What to Eat seal of approval.

Taste-Tested and Diabetes-Friendly
It’s not easy to find diabetes-friendly snack options — especially foods that are notoriously unhealthful, such as greasy chips and salty pretzels. But we knew there had to be some delicious products out there. So we went on a mission to track down all the options that met our nutrition guidelines. Then we sent those products through a series of taste tests.

Some were too crunchy; others weren’t crunchy enough. But after being tasted by more than 100 people, including people with diabetes, the best-tasting chips and pretzels rose to the top. The winner in each category received the Diabetic Living What to Eat™ award. Pop open a bag and taste how yummy healthful snacks can be!

Nutritional Guidelines

— 200 calories or less
— 5 grams total fat or less
— 2 grams saturated fat or less
— 0 grams trans fat
— 25 grams carbohydrate or less

What to Eat with Diabetes: Best Sweet Diabetic Snacks

By Jessie Shafer and Jane Burnett, RD, LD
We’ve got your best picks for sweet snacks right here! These sweet diabetic snacks received the nutrition check mark from dietitians and taste approval from people like you. We conducted blind taste panels with more than 100 people, including people with diabetes, and awarded the top-rated brownies, cookies, bars, and graham snacks our Diabetic Living What to Eat seal of approval.

Best Sweet Snacks for Diabetes

To snack or not to snack? That is the big question for many people with diabetes.

With current oral diabetes medications, snacking is not necessary to avoid blood sugar lows. But in some cases, snacks can be helpful for weight control. The key is to avoid high-calorie choices like potato chips or candy. Instead reach for a better snack, such as one of these sweet options.

We snacked our way through 70 bars, cookies, and crisps that met our health guidelines. Then we asked more than 100 people, including people with diabetes, to taste and pick their favorites. And here they are: The top six snacks to receive the Diabetic Living What to Eat™ seal of approval.

Nutrition Guidelines

*200 calories or less
*6 g total fat or less
*5 g sat. fat or less
*0 g trans fat
*30 g carb or less
*240 mg sodium or less
*At least 1 g fiber per 15 g carb
