  • Great ideas! I especially like how you wrote how we can make our own treats. One thing people might want to do when buying processed foods at the store (and dried coconut) is to avoid propylene glycol, a toxic additive used as a preservative. Propylene glycol can damage your liver! Stay safe when you're eating! - 8/15/2016 1:31:31 PM
  • Two favorites of mine are:
    Fiber One 90 Calorie Chey Bars. 5 g fiber, 90 calories
    Jello Dark Chocolate Sugar Free Pudding - 60 calories, 0 sugar, 1 g fiber - 6/3/2016 9:11:38 AM

    As one who pays close attention to carbohydrate content, none of these fit the bill. Sigh. - 6/3/2016 8:52:42 AM
  • Great article. I love the silk chocolate milk. It is just like eating a fudge sickle only melted. I often wondered about freezing a serving and seeing if it tastes like a fudge sickle. I also like the S'more redo. Several good choices here.. Thanks so much!!! - 5/29/2016 8:14:33 AM
  • Great information thank you very much - 5/28/2016 9:12:10 PM
  • I get chocolate cravings all the time. I've stopped having sugar cravings because I do not eat sugar anymore. "Whew! Never thought I would get there so don't want to start eating it again as it is so hard to quit!"

    I drink a cup of coffee with fat-free half-and-half (can't eat fat either) and the caffeine fix takes care of the chocolate craving. That's basically what a chocolate craving is - your system looking for a caffeine fix, which your brain translates into CHOCOLATE!

    Try it! It really works! - 5/28/2016 6:25:29 PM
  • The Fiber One brownies are to die for. Just eat ONE! :D
    And any of the Skinny Cow ice creams are great. Both are my go-to things along with Russell Stover Sugar Free candies. YUM - 5/28/2016 5:24:55 PM
  • These sound good - some are even available in Canada but my favourite (although it isn't particularly low fat) is President's Choice dark chocolate which I always have around (500 g bar) and consume only 2-3 squares at a time. I also like the Kashi mocha chocolate granola bar. - 5/28/2016 3:36:04 PM
  • ALDI's Choceur Dark Chocolate with Hazelnuts. One serving (which is a pretty nice size) is 170 calories, 3g protein, and only 9 net grams of carb (13g minus 4g of fiber). Delicious stuff! - 5/28/2016 1:56:43 PM
  • I'm sorry, If I am going to eat chocolate it will be REAL dark chocolate,but just a piece at a time. Endangered Spieces is a good brand. - 5/28/2016 9:07:48 AM
  • Glad to read others know about making a s'more in the microwave~! - 5/28/2016 12:11:08 AM
  • I'm in agreement about artificial sweeteners. Not only do they mess with my stomach, they also mess with my head! I've never developed a fondness for diet sodas for this reason as drinking one resulted in terrible stomach cramps and a migraine. Just because an item says diet or lite/light; does not necessarily mean it is healthy or good for you! - 3/29/2016 3:13:03 PM
  • I agree with BELDAME~having Splenda {sucralose} ISN'T HEALTHY in the diet.I look at most of the list as stuff i USED to eat and don't anymore. The only thing on the list I have had that does help is the chocolate Cheerios with SIlk SOy UNsweetened Almond milk {15 calories for 1/2 cup} . That does satisfy. - 2/15/2016 2:08:52 AM
  • It would be super to print out this list and keep it in a place that I refer to.

    Sometimes we forget what was on the list, it would help to be able to review it.

    The list is great, and once in awhile chocolate is a treat, this list makes it easier to select one that is sensible yet satisfying. - 2/3/2016 6:04:34 AM

    I would rather slowly savor one really good dark chocolate truffle than any of the suggested chocolate fixes in the article. - 12/7/2015 5:21:09 AM
