Lidl do a lot of things useful for low carb - the notable exception being sugar free jelly - though these days I find them too sweet and have taken to using one sachet of the jelly and some 'real' gelatine bought in bulk.
I have been able to get 95 percent cocoa chocolate at my branch from time to time.
We get milk delivered so I have been able to limit shopping trips, but it is noticeable that things are not always available in these strange times.

@Drummer My local Lidl have started doing the sugar free jelly, so keep your eyes open next time you are in. I also find it a bit sweet but when combined with black currants. redcurrants, raspberries and blackberries (ie their frozen fruit mix) it works great as they are quite tart. I use them to make a low carb trifle and my partner also really enjoys it. I need to look into getting milk delivered as there is a local guy doing it, but the people in the local shop are lovely so I like to give them business too for the everyday essentials that you quickly run out of.

Maybe the jelly is one of the things managers decide upon, or the size of the store dictates. At my local store the aisles have been made wider by removing one line of cabinets and there is a one way system imposed by the way the remaining ones have been shuffled up and down the shop.

Have you ever tried any keto chocolate brands? Ketobabe Chocolate seems pretty legit...they even have keto white chocolate. I got the gold chocolate, creme brulee chocolate and white chocolate from them. All tasted too good to be true:oops: It's a bit pricey tho...

I buy Lidl's 95percent cocoa chocolate and eat small amounts once in a while.
I have chopped nuts and drizzled just enough melted chocolate over them to hold them together in a silicon mould for tiny cupcakes.

I second the Lidl one - it does last quite well, though I always keep it in the coldest part of the colder fridge (I have two) and they are useful buckets too.
that's my fave too - mild flavour.

I am following the ketogenic diet for the last few days. But I think it's not possible to follow this for the long term. Can anyone suggest the ideal number of months should I follow this?
It might well depend on your particular reason for going down that route rather than low carb. If you feel it is not sustainable then it may not be the best regime for you.
