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.

Ohh I wish I did not love chocolate! I sometimes dip the end of a pretzel rod into melted chocolate chips. Having only one of these is a nice treat! Also, I wish that there was a Trader Joe store in our area. I keep hearing about their great products and prices.

Another- Pretzel M&M's only 150 cal for regular size (180 for large), the "cheapest" candy bar out there.

those crying "these wont cut it" or "theyre not healthy options", need to keep a couple of things in mind. first, living a healthy lifestyle is about SELF CONTROL. if YOU cant CONTROL your chocolate craving (or any unhealthy craving) to one of these suggestions because of the AMOUNT, then you have bigger issues, and maybe shouldnt be relying on a website to help you get healthy. second, these suggestions arent supposed to be sufficing an everyday habit. theyre for those once-in-a-while, when-you-just-cant-stand-it moments, and wont kill you if rarely eat them. that said, personally, i think a serving or two of quality dark chocolate (60% or more) would be far more satisfying.

bahahahahaha! A cup of diet cocoa? ONE jello serving? This is a great idea for a topic, but there are not many realistic suggestions for people who like to consume a LOT of chocolate. I found 2 items to try and I suggest your store brand no sugar no fat fudgesicles- 60 calories! Good luck with your next craving. I enjoy my fave chocolate when it hits too hard- LINDT hazelnut bar,

All these IDEAS are fine but for someone like me. They just DO NOT WORK!!! If I want something, be it chocolate to mayo I eat more if it's reduced calorie. Not to mention the HUGE amount of salt they add to these products. Honestly take a look at the difference at the sodium levels!!!

I think a nice diet hot cocoa does the trick. :)
