Thanks, Wuv!

I'm going to attach a comparison sheet since folks in the last thread hadn't seen it. This is NOT mine but I found it somewhere on the forums and it has helped me immensely in ordering!

Also, in case any of you order a lot from Nashua and don't know- it's worth it to join the Lifetime Dieter's club for $30- you get 10% off every purchase (and if you buy it with a purchase, they deduct the 10% of the $30 join fee). I didn't know this for my first few orders but then read it later!

Thanks for the new thread Wuv!

I've been meaning to post about this bar, I think it's my favorite so far. It's Wonderslim Crispy Fudge and Graham available at Diet Direct. I got it as a sample when I ordered other things and O...M...G is it good! I'll be ordering these for sure:
160 cal
5 Total fat
13 net carb (18-5 fiber)
15 g protein

18 carbs seems high, even with the fibre.
I try to avoid bars with carbs greater than protein...

I just placed an order at Diet Direct and this is one of my staples. I have a 30% off promo code, you have to spend $79, but you get the 30% off plus free shipping.

The code is:PC9D

Have a good night

I've been ordering there for 5 months and did not know about a Lifetime Dieter's Club. Boo. Just my luck.

Thanks, Molly

oh the Proti Chocolate Dream Bars are divine too. Like a Nestle crunch bar and it is scored so you can break it into several pieces to last awhile

I've looked all over the Nashua website and can't find anything on a Lifetime Dieter's Club. Can you (or anyone) point me to it. I spend a lot of money at Nashua, 10% would help.

Thanks, Molly

Molly, you need to request it in the notes section of checkout. They will charge you separately (minus the ten percent of your order). I found this out using the contact us section... They don't advertise it anywhere, I looked too.

Yes. I placed an order with them last night. I left a note in the Notes section asking about it. They contacted me today and said they'd honor the discount on my order if I wanted to join today. They also said that it is not advertised. Not sure if you can use other discount codes (like the free shipping over Labor Day) combined with the Lifetime discount.

They look fine and would be unrestricted. Remember, do check the ingredients for things like aspartame. It's not just the nutritional stats with alternatives, you've got to watch ingredients, too.

Oh yeah, I forgot about aspartame. But I checked, and ... none!! Yay! That makes me happy because I was afraid they were going to go to waste since I started IP.
