  • moderation is the key!
  • Couldn't imagine the rest of my life without chocolate. Since incorporating it into my daily intake no more binges!!
  • What's the store brand that you get?
  • There is a store brand fudgesicle I get that's rediculously low in calories and delish!
  • Great little suggestions of snacks.
  • It's great that you make lists like this for us. In my busy days, it's often hard to pay attention to calories.
  • I'm in love with the Yasso Frozen yogurt bars. Can't decide which is my favorite!
  • 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

  • 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.
  • 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.

    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%
  • 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.
  • 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!
