I have tried the Jello pudding one and that for sure is a true one. It helped me in losing 100 pounds by eating 1 or 2 when I had a chocolate craving combined with diet & exercise. Favorite ones are the prepackaged sugar free Jello pudding cups

Special K makes 100 calorie pastry crisps. There are two bars to a packet (50 calories each) They are yummy!
A tablespoon of dark morsels is 70 calories
Also a tablespoon of Nutella, a bit higher at 100 calories - but sometimes so worth it! :^)

LOL !!! I'd rather eat the chocolate treats than some of the products you recommended. At least the chocolate treats don't contain a bunch of Genetically Modified poisons and artificial products, like Quaker, Kashi, and General Mills. Some of these contain up to 70%, GMO ingredients, high fructose corn syrup and harmful artificial sweeteners.

So, no thanks , I'll stick to dark chocolate sweetened with coconut sugar (low fructose, low glycemic), or stevia.

one square of Baker's semi sweet baking chocolate contains 140 calories, and for me will satisfy an occasional chocolate craving better than the suggestions in the article. I seldom buy those products anyway.

Calories mean nothing... factor in sugar grams, carbs, fibre means more than calories.

I like to add some raw cacao powder into plain Greek yogurt and a little stevia...some frozen banana too! Very satisfying!

I have tried many of the options listed here, telling myself, for example, that I could have one skinny cow ice cream, or a few candy kisses, or one granola bar. For those of us whose issues with food run deeper, these "options" are dangerous. They feed into an addiction that tells us that we don't have an addiction. And for me, cumpulsive overeating is an addiction. These suggestions are for people that have an emotional barometer that I don't have. When I stay away from the stuff they suggest, I don't want it after a while, and when I indulge, it's as if I'm giving myself a dose of poison. A sad reality, but a true one.

I agree with the person who mentioned the pretzel M&Ms as a good choice, and I also personally like the Emerald Cocoa Roast Almonds 100 Calorie Packs.

Chocolate is a requirement it's a cyclic need. Fudge pops are the BOMB. Skinny cow products are good but I am put off by the name (lol)

I like Ghirardelli, Godiva, Lindt, and Mars Chocolate, but my favorite is anything from Aldi. Shocking, but true, Aldi chocolate is the best chocolate available from a grocer in my opinion. I do not really like Hershey's, but I actually despise chocolate from... Zachary! It makes me angry how they ruin such a good thing. If you ever get the chance to go to a Ghirardelli shoppe do it. I don't care if you are on a diet, do it! I went to the main one in SF and ordered a chocolate sundae and hot chocolate. I could cry it was so good. Buying their chocolate in the grocery store is just not the same.
