These items are good, but "cure" the cravings is a stretch..............really. They do help, but a love affair with some foods is there to stay.

Thanks! I love the homemade choc. covered pretzels, raisins, and popcorn ideas. Will definitely add as a snack. Oh, I also LOVE choc graham crackers with soymilk, but I tend to get a little carried away them :)

I split a bar of Cadbury's Dairy Milk with the kids once a week, and have a McVities Milk Chocolate digestive a few times a week. Delicious. If you're going to eat this kind of stuff, why screw around the the 'diet' and 'lite' stuff? Eat the real thing sparingly; you'll enjoy it much more.

Also, once in a while a girl has to sit down and have a big old bowl of Cocoa Puffs.

Many of your suggestions contain sucralose (Splenda). I don't know about anyone else, but that stuff wreaks havoc with my digestive system. Horrendous abdominal cramps, bloating, and flatulence that sounds like Cthulhu and a host of Old Ones are about to rise from the depths and slaughter mankind.

I love the Fiber One bars with chocolate chips :) so yummy. I also really like classic chocolate milk made with NesQuik. It gives you all the goodness of milk while still being chocolatey :)

Old fashion pop corn made with coconut oil, no butter just some popcorn salt, it is wonderful! I am not sure but I think it is the coconut oil. It just seems to make everything taste better! Deb Pheifer

@PUTZNME I love the idea of home made banana chocolate snacks. Thank you!

What works for me is a small amount of the best chocolate I can find, and then, instead of "eating" it, I simply let a small square melt on my tongue. I can keep 20 grams (about 2/3 ounce) of chocolate going this way, 5 grams at a time, for close to 20 minutes.

The DIY chocolate croissant idea sounds awesome! A little bit of luxury and not much guilt. The only problem with it is that you can't make just one. The package contains 8 crescents -- if I baked up all of them, I'd be tempted to eat several at once. I suppose one could bake them all and freeze the other 7, but I'm not sure how many would actually get into the freezer...

I like to slice bananas, freeze them for about 15 min so they are firm and then cover them in melted chocolate and refreeze. DIY as opposed to buying it prepackaged and getting a lot more additives and paying more.

I generally have other family members consume things before I get to them !! Which is some times an aggravation. Also I will never understand the attraction of pretzels dipped in chocolate.

Would have been nice to include the carb and protein counts for these treats, not just the total calories.
