It's great that you make lists like this for us. In my busy days, it's often hard to pay attention to calories.

I'm in love with the Yasso Frozen yogurt bars. Can't decide which is my favorite!

Sent too soon - Hershey's kisses are real if you can keep to 5 - I can't. Better for me to find a place where I can by a single Lindor truffle or a Ghiradelli Square. One at a time - none in the house. That's how it works for me. I love yogurt but chocolate yogurt falls so flat

If these "treats" were a satisfying substitute for chocolate none of us would be here. Most of the products are "chocolate flavored" whatever that means and many are like cardboard.

I couldn't agree more with the prior comment that most of these items are carb bombs with cheap chocolate. Don't get me wrong - there's not much I like more than a SkinnyCow fudge bar (and especially their ice cream sandwich!) as a "splurge" that still feels like I'm sticking to a reasonable calorie count. Unfortunately, too many of the listed items are pretty evidently product placements that really aren't all that good for you. I feel better about my decisions -- and really do get a satisfying and yummy snack -- when my evening goodie is a single 85% cocoa dark chocolate square (50 cal) and 7-8 almonds (50 cal). Just a few nuts can dull cravings. It takes some folks a while to get used to dark chocolate, but once you do, it's such a treat.

So no ACTUAL chocolate huh?!?!?!

Most of the products shown are carbohydrate bombs with low-quality "chocolate."


You have a a craving for chocolate? Eat a couple of squares of REAL chocolate like Lindt 75%

I find once I have chocolate it keeps calling if it is sweet. What takes care of my chocolate cravings is a of Lindt 90% chocolate. It is bitter but it takes care of the craving. Only after you cut out sweets can you taste the sweetness in it.

I love these treats! Over the years, I have noticed that I do a WHOLE lot better doing LOW FAT rather than low carb, always have more energy throuout the day. These treats help a lot to stick to the plan, thanks for the reminder!
