My new fav chocolate are "Brookside Dark Chocolate Acai and Blueberry Flavors" or "Brookside Dark Chocolate Pomegranate" 1/4 cup (40 grams) = 170 or 180 calories. A little higher than listed here, but oooohhh so good!

stay away from soy and rice cakes!! BAD advice on those 2.
I find that a half serving (4 or 5) of a really good dark (70% of more) chocolate bar is only 110 calories and really satisfies my chocolate craving better than anything else. Yeah, they don't have much nutritional value, but they quench the craving!
Fiber One also makes a Chocolate cereal; tastes like all the chocolatey sugar cereals but better for you :) And of course Special K Chocolate (just don't take all the pieces of chocolate out of the box in one bowl, haha).
I enjoy having a serving of Fiber One Chocolate Cereal. It is only 80 calories for a 2/3 cup serving (so usually I have two servings). I eat it dry for a snack in the evening. It is low in calorie and has a cocoa-krispy type taste. However, I won't claim that it is "healthy" for us to eat too much of this processed food.
Real chocolate is not the enemy here, everyone! Try eating one small square of 70% cacao chocolate. That is enough to satisfy the craving without busting the calorie count. It contains nutrients not found in the mentions choices above.
