These all sound great.
I plan to try most of them.
I am not a chocolate lover, but I do indulge from time to time.

A great chocolate treat for me is a haf serving (1 bar) of moser roth chili dark european chocotates from Aldis. No other dark chocolate works for me. Any other types I just want more. I break the bar in small pieces before I open it and savor every bite.

Sometimes when I "try" to substitute a low-cal sugary treat/craving for what I really want, CHOCOLATE, it's not really successful. I still want CHOCOLATE, the real thing. I think some of the suggested substitutes are actually pretty good, but if I'm in the wrong frame of mind, I can end up eating too many of the substitutes, or end up eating CHOCOLATE AND the low cal option too. Some of us still struggle in spite of the other options. One solution I have found personally is to eat 14-20 Nestle dark chocolate chips to satisfy my craving. It's good chocolate and if I eat 3 at a time and really taste them, it usually works!

Let 's see, I too love chocolate so far everyone has their favorite and that I can understand.I used to love the Jello chocolate cups but one day found some ugly yuck in it so never ate it again.I love all kinds of chocolate and don't really have one favorite.I may try the chocolate cups again they look so good on the grocery shelves.My girlfriend made some chocolate chip cookies and I really did enjoy them.Hubby and I are trying to lose weight so we have to be very careful around chocolate. Shine on ,shine on chocolate moon up in the sky!

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!
