Note: Im going to be updating this post over time with photos, corrections and information as I think of things! Please comment if you have something to add!!




D'Lites Emporium
Millhopper Plaza
4216 NW 16th Boulevard
Gainesville, FL 32601


What you can get only there:

  • Potato Chips!!! Only 4 carbs a small bag and they taste yummy even though they are not made of potatoes!!
  • Blueberry syrup for pancakes (sweetened with Sucralose so only have a little bit).
  • Ice cream - the chocolate flavor is VERY low (real) sugar and low carbs.
  • Granola cereal - My 10-year-old likes the vanilla flavored kind. Use almond milk with it and put a little bit of heavy cream in to make it taste more like cows milk.
  • Hamburger buns (not gluten free)
  • Bread (not gluten free but only 4 carbs per slice).

Canned wild salmon I have subscribed to a monthly delivery of this from Amazon for over 5 years. I make "tuna fish" out of it. See this post for the exact recipe. I choose this because it is wild alaskan salmon and the can is BPA free.
