I’ve been on a ketogenic diet for a few months and I love it. I’ve lost 30 lbs in a little over a month with minimal exercise and a little keto grubbing here and there. I feel amazing and have finally managed to get rid of my stretch marks! It’s awesome and I think the best way to stay in ketosis is to eat real food. I love Target, but they don’t have a huge variety of keto-friendly products. So I created a list of the top 10 keto products and snacks for Target shoppers!
The keto diet is a low carb diet designed to help you lose weight while increasing your metabolic rate. The keto diet has quickly become one of the most popular diets in the world and with the launch of keto products at target, now is the time to stock up. Target has a huge variety of keto friendly foods including shirataki noodles, popcorn, protein bars and more.
Target is notorious for limiting its assortment of healthy products, so when I discovered it had a healthy section I couldn’t believe my luck. They carry a number of brands I can’t find anywhere else, including Primal Kitchen, Rude Health, and Acacia.
Get some of our favorite low-carb brands at excellent prices by visiting Target for our Top 10 Keto Buys. We’ve brought you keto grocery hauls from Wal-Mart to Costco, Trader Joe’s to Sprouts, but this one was created just for our Target fans. You’re well aware of who you are.
Keto Grocery Shopping
Eggs, butter, and meat are basics that can be found almost anyplace, even Target. If you’re feeling experimental, Target also has a large selection of keto-friendly snacks and specialty items that you can add to your cart. Watch our video on the Top 10 Keto Buys at Target and then check out our list below.
Duke’s Meats is number one
Their Smoked Shorty Sausages have a fantastic fat-to-protein ratio, which we enjoy. To keep us full and provide plenty of energy, we favor snacks that are heavier in fat than protein.
FBOMB Nut Butters are number two on the list
These small packets of macadamia nut butter are ideal for carrying fat on the go. MCT packets are also available, which are fantastic for adding fat to salads and soups. Get 10% off your online buy of their nut butters with the code KETOCONNECT!

3. Exceptional Bar
These meat bars are excellent and crafted with high-quality ingredients. With 2g total carbs per bar, the Chicken Sriracha and Venison flavors are the best keto selections.
Justin’s Almond Butter is number four on the list
At Target, you can get a broad choice of portable nut butter pouches, including Justin’s and RX, which are two of our faves. Although Justin’s has fewer carbs, both are excellent keto options.
5. The Jimmy Dean Egg Sandwich
If you, like Matt, were a Jimmy Dean aficionado in college, you’ll love these bunless breakfast sandwiches. They have roughly 7 grams of carbs each, so they’re a terrific choice for when you’re desiring something sweet.
Keto Creamers is six
Target’s keto goods, such as creamers, bars, and other specialty items, pleasantly impressed us. You might come across a new protein powder or creamer that you want to try.
7. Quest Bars
Quest Bars are a good low-carb alternative if you can tolerate all of the added fiber. We occasionally take them on vacation or have one as a movie snack.
8. Keto Pancake Mix from Birch Benders
If you have children or simply enjoy pancakes, these Birch Bender Keto Pancake mixes are a good choice. On our blog, we also offer a fantastic Keto Pancake recipe that you will enjoy.
Quest Pizza – Nine
Check out our video for a complete review of Quest Pizza. They’re a good keto option, but they’re not the healthiest. “They’re a bit of a science experiment,” Matt says.
Grillo’s Pickles No. 10
This brand of pickles is one of our favorites because they’re crunchy and tasty. We always opt for “fresh” pickles, which have not been fermented or brined and have been freshly packaged in vinegar. It’s merely a matter of taste and texture.
Target’s Worst Keto Purchases
When shopping for low-carb foods, there’s always something to keep an eye out for. Many people are misled by marketing claims and extensive lists of components. Here are a handful of our less-than-favorite Target purchases.
Russell Stover Candy
Be a sugar-free sucker, not a sugar-free sucker! These sugar-free sweets are sweetened with maltitol, a sugar substitute that has a similar effect on blood sugar as ordinary white sugar. These aren’t suitable for a ketogenic diet. Watch this video to learn more about maltitol and other sweeteners.
Margarine is created with refined vegetable oils, which cause the body to become more inflammatory. Heart disease, joint pain, and cancer can all be caused by inflammation. To understand more, read our article on vegetable oils.
Gatorade and Powerade are two sports drinks
You may believe that by drinking these zero-calorie sports drinks, you are getting your electrolytes, but there aren’t many electrolytes in them. The electrolyte products we recommend can be found in our supplements post.
Ice cream from Halo Top
Halo Top can be a good low-carb ice cream alternative once in a while if you keep your portions in check. We don’t care for the ingredients and prefer higher-quality sugar-free keto brands like Killer Whey and Rebel Creamery.
