My take on this , If I am going to eat chocolate it should be good. I get Lindts and also Ghirardelli the dark ones with 70 % + cocoa. Yummy. ( I do not eat more than one square
at the time)

How about a banana with homemade choco-almond butter (made with almonds and bittersweet or semi-sweet chocolate)!

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!

I put a half cup of chocolate soy milk in my coffee every morning. It's a nice treat, adds some protein and calcium to my diet, and delicious!

need to include Ghirardelli's Intense Dark 72%cacao squares. About 50 calories per square and REALLY satisfies the cravings - plus I like dark better than I do milk anyway!!

I'm really loving the line of Fiber One 90 calorie brownies (and other sweets, like lemon bars) - I get my chocolate/sweet fix and a bunch of fiber, too! *thumbs up*

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 really love the chocolate graham crackers. Gives me a great crunch with some chocolatey taste. I need to try out Quaker's rice crisps though! On my next shopping trip.

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.

Chobani makes a chocolate chip Greek yogurt - very good and each 8 oz serving is 270 calories.

Try 1/2 Cup plain Greek Yogurt, one packet stevia, 1 tsp. unsweetened cocoa powder and mix well. Top with a TBS sliced almonds and TBS shredded coconut. Better than Almond Joy!

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.
