  • I'm in love with the Yasso Frozen yogurt bars. Can't decide which is my favorite! - 1/7/2017 8:34:00 PM
  • Sent too soon - Hershey's kisses are real if you can keep to 5 - I can't. Better for me to find a place where I can by a single Lindor truffle or a Ghiradelli Square. One at a time - none in the house. That's how it works for me. I love yogurt but chocolate yogurt falls so flat - 1/7/2017 7:10:28 PM

  • If these "treats" were a satisfying substitute for chocolate none of us would be here. Most of the products are "chocolate flavored" whatever that means and many are like cardboard. - 1/7/2017 6:56:44 PM
  • I couldn't agree more with the prior comment that most of these items are carb bombs with cheap chocolate. Don't get me wrong - there's not much I like more than a SkinnyCow fudge bar (and especially their ice cream sandwich!) as a "splurge" that still feels like I'm sticking to a reasonable calorie count. Unfortunately, too many of the listed items are pretty evidently product placements that really aren't all that good for you. I feel better about my decisions -- and really do get a satisfying and yummy snack -- when my evening goodie is a single 85% cocoa dark chocolate square (50 cal) and 7-8 almonds (50 cal). Just a few nuts can dull cravings. It takes some folks a while to get used to dark chocolate, but once you do, it's such a treat. - 1/7/2017 12:59:58 PM
  • So no ACTUAL chocolate huh?!?!?!

    Most of the products shown are carbohydrate bombs with low-quality "chocolate."


    You have a a craving for chocolate? Eat a couple of squares of REAL chocolate like Lindt 75% - 10/28/2016 8:23:29 PM
  • I find once I have chocolate it keeps calling if it is sweet. What takes care of my chocolate cravings is a of Lindt 90% chocolate. It is bitter but it takes care of the craving. Only after you cut out sweets can you taste the sweetness in it. - 9/30/2016 6:26:50 AM
  • 40 chocolate chips does the trick for me

    I love these treats! Over the years, I have noticed that I do a WHOLE lot better doing LOW FAT rather than low carb, always have more energy throuout the day. These treats help a lot to stick to the plan, thanks for the reminder! - 9/29/2016 10:31:03 AM
  • 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
