If you want to go for something that tastes like popcorn you can go for pork rinds and also give a try to veggie chips. Just make sure that they do not contain added sugar in them.
Dried fruits like cranberries, raisins are really good when it comes to sweet teeth. But these dry fruits have a high amount of sugar content in them, no doubt these have natural sugar content in them but any sugar content is not good for the people going for the keto diet plan.

Commercial Peanut Butter
Peanuts are perfectly acceptable on a ketogenic diet. However, most stores use poor ingredients which have high trans fats and sugar content, So, it is better to make peanuts at your home or to check the brand quality before buying from the stores.
