These are the perfect candy for people with chocolate cravings. Pop one or two and the craving is gone, without adding many calories to your day!

A 2-ounce version of a candy bar is 35 Grams of sugar
A 2-ounce version of a candy bar can add 35 grams of sugar to your diet. Switch to bittersweet or semi-sweet chocolate chips that have at least 60% cacao. Sixteen little dark chocolate chips contain just 6 grams of sugar and they add one gram of fiber and are better for your heart. Even 2-3 dark chocolate kisses will do the trick to satisy cravings with out all that sugar!!!!
Instead of telling myself that I CAN'T have chocolate or a piece of candy every now and then, I've started buying a package of the Sugar-Free Chocolates. They are individually wrapped, often times are dark chocolate, and there's not very many in the package. I know that they are there when I get a craving and they are so good. I have also had the Skinny Cow candies. It's just a sweet treat while maintaining portion control and I feel satisfied afterwards.
Hooray for dark chocolate! Eating about 30 calories a day of dark chocolate — that's about half an ounce — was shown to help lower blood pressure without weight gain or other adverse effects, according to a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA).
Dark Chocolate is good for you..get Hershey's sugar free..eat one piece a day
