Two favorites of mine are:
Fiber One 90 Calorie Chey Bars. 5 g fiber, 90 calories
Jello Dark Chocolate Sugar Free Pudding - 60 calories, 0 sugar, 1 g fiber

As one who pays close attention to carbohydrate content, none of these fit the bill. Sigh.

Great article. I love the silk chocolate milk. It is just like eating a fudge sickle only melted. I often wondered about freezing a serving and seeing if it tastes like a fudge sickle. I also like the S'more redo. Several good choices here.. Thanks so much!!!

I get chocolate cravings all the time. I've stopped having sugar cravings because I do not eat sugar anymore. "Whew! Never thought I would get there so don't want to start eating it again as it is so hard to quit!"

I drink a cup of coffee with fat-free half-and-half (can't eat fat either) and the caffeine fix takes care of the chocolate craving. That's basically what a chocolate craving is - your system looking for a caffeine fix, which your brain translates into CHOCOLATE!

Try it! It really works!

The Fiber One brownies are to die for. Just eat ONE! :D
And any of the Skinny Cow ice creams are great. Both are my go-to things along with Russell Stover Sugar Free candies. YUM

These sound good - some are even available in Canada but my favourite (although it isn't particularly low fat) is President's Choice dark chocolate which I always have around (500 g bar) and consume only 2-3 squares at a time. I also like the Kashi mocha chocolate granola bar.

ALDI's Choceur Dark Chocolate with Hazelnuts. One serving (which is a pretty nice size) is 170 calories, 3g protein, and only 9 net grams of carb (13g minus 4g of fiber). Delicious stuff!

I'm sorry, If I am going to eat chocolate it will be REAL dark chocolate,but just a piece at a time. Endangered Spieces is a good brand.

I'm in agreement about artificial sweeteners. Not only do they mess with my stomach, they also mess with my head! I've never developed a fondness for diet sodas for this reason as drinking one resulted in terrible stomach cramps and a migraine. Just because an item says diet or lite/light; does not necessarily mean it is healthy or good for you!

I agree with BELDAME~having Splenda {sucralose} ISN'T HEALTHY in the diet.I look at most of the list as stuff i USED to eat and don't anymore. The only thing on the list I have had that does help is the chocolate Cheerios with SIlk SOy UNsweetened Almond milk {15 calories for 1/2 cup} . That does satisfy.

It would be super to print out this list and keep it in a place that I refer to.

Sometimes we forget what was on the list, it would help to be able to review it.

The list is great, and once in awhile chocolate is a treat, this list makes it easier to select one that is sensible yet satisfying.

I would rather slowly savor one really good dark chocolate truffle than any of the suggested chocolate fixes in the article.
