The keto diet is still all the rage in 2020, and brands are still jumping on the bandwagon to mass-produce new foods to accommodate the new craze. On keto, people typically eat less than 20 grams of carbs a day, instead focusing on fat and protein mostly.
On the most popular desserts for keto dieters however, is called a mug cake. Basically, you make a miniature cake in a mug, which is just enough for a single serving and with no chance to actually overeat a whole cake. These mug cakes are a keto diet staple, and a simple way to toss an egg, some chocolate powder and a few other ingredients into a mug, toss it into the microwave for a minute and you’ve got a cake.
Duncan Hines is jumping on this trend with the Duncan Hines Keto Friendly cakes. Each individual container is about the size of a mug and completely microwaveable. The three flavors are double chocolate cake, birthday cake mix and walnut fudge brownie, and all you need to do is add water (or milk) to the bowl and pop it into the microwave, based on the instructions.
According to Duncan Hines, “the flavors will include walnut fudge brownie, birthday cake and double chocolate cake. They each have zero grams of added sugar, 5 grams net carbs and between 8-10 grams of protein. While they’re not considered low-calorie, the cups are 300 calories each, so they can fit into your macros if you want.”
Right now, these helpful keto cups are expected to arrive in grocery stores across America by the month of March, and they are expected to have a retail price of $2.15 each. There is a likelihood that these treats will also be in major retailers like Target and Walmart, as well as major grocery chains and other stores as well.
