Highkey: Low-Carb Snacks
Starting with low-carb cookies was certainly a bold move on the part of Highkey, as this is one of the cherished treats that few people are willing to compromise on in the taste department, but it’s crazy what they’ve managed to accomplish.
As Chief Sales Officer Efrain Cardenas explained to us, Highkey and their low-carb, grain-free, gluten-free, zero-sugar-added cookies were initially springboarded to success by Amazon, where they were the top-selling chocolate chip cookie.
Since then, the collection has expanded to include such classics as vanilla wafers, shortbread, snickerdoodle, ginger spice, and soon, a sandwich cookie.
We’ve done a clinical test to make sure that it [the cookies] doesn’t spike the blood sugar level, so that everybody can have some delicious cookies.

As research-minded reviewers, we are especially appreciative of the work that Highkey has put in to actually verify on their end how their snacks affect blood sugar levels.
“We’ve done a clinical test to make sure that it [our cookies] doesn’t spike the blood sugar level, so that everybody can have some delicious cookies,” Efrain told us.
Naturally, many of Highkey’s products are keto-friendly, and they’re mostly sweetened with erythritol, chocolate, stevia, and monk fruit.
As for our team’s personal experience with Highkey’s chocolate chip cookies, we were very most impressed by the taste; they’ve really captured that classic chocolate chip cookie vibe.
The texture was just a bit more crumbly and oily than standard cookies, which we’ve come to expect with keto-friendly alternatives to pastries and sweets, but not to the point where they totally fell apart as soon as you took a bite.
Overall, we were highly impressed with Highkey, and would definitely recommend them to anyone looking to restore their snack and/or dessert game.
