    Lindt 90% chocolate. Darn, now that I am thinking about it, will have to go get a square (60 cals) out of the cupboard!

    My favourite is Pana Chocolate, which is an Australian brand (not sure if it's available elsewhere). It's a raw, organic, vegan-friendly chocolate with two big squares coming in at roughly 85 calories, depending on which flavour you get. Hand on heart, I think it tastes fantastic. So do all my friends who I've given it to :wink: It's not "good ... for a 'health food' chocolate". It's just plain GOOD. Really rich, a beautiful smooth and almost fudgy texture ... I'll take it over Cadbury any day. SO YUMMY.

    Lindt - 85% Cocoa Extra Dark Chocolate 53 calories. As an alternative, you could, for example, budget for your daily sweet tooth.

    Ooh, yes, the dark Lindt is so good. But I also make space for the occasional Lindor Truffle, which is about 63 calories, if I remember correctly.
  • I usually eat 5 pieces of Galaxy Cookie Crumble (21 cals a piece). Sometimes I'll have a Freddo (95 cals) or Milky Way Crisp Roll (60something per roll I think, can't remember). But I like the Cookie Crumble. I suck each piece and it's usually enough to satisfy my chocolate craving.

    When I need-yes I said need chocolate, I drink a super chocolate hot cocoa. It consist of: 4 oz of of skim milk, 1oz of carnation evaported milk, 1/2 a packet of Swiss hot cocoa, and 7 semi sweet cholate chips. It yeilds 110 calories, but only 1.5 grams of fat. It is a semi-healthy treat without the extra sugar. Your taste buds will be overwhelmed with chocolate bliss!

    Thanks. Gonna try this. Is it just as sweet/chocolaty as normal hot chocolate? You don't add water?

    I like regular chocolate. I will buy the Cadbury 120g bars. I limit my self to 3 squares (or 6 if I'm feeling really naughty) at the most (around 85 calories per 3 squares) but only if it's within my goal. Otherwise I take Kellogs chocolatey rice crispy bars at about 150cals to work. I occasionally have a snickers (when I am really craving it) but they're not really worth the calories.
  • Personally I love the 70% cocoa plus stuff. Also sea salt in chocolate. I must admit I can have a square and move on. And for cheaper chocolate, like Celebrations, Quality Street etc. (UK stuff) that gets thrown around at work, I can simply smell the box and feel like I've had my fix ...

    A couple of dark hershey's kisses. 20 calories each.

    likewise! I buy little dark Hershey kissies and then eat one when I'm craving, which is usually all I need... :)

    I eat a snack size Hershey's Special Dark every day. It's got a lot of anti-oxidants that are very good for you. This is one of the tiny bars that comes in the pack of 8. Serving size is three little bars, but I eat one a day. My research says it's enough to get the benefits and it's a great treat. 56 Calories.

    I eat regular chocolate long as it fits into my day. Snickers, kitKat and sometimes skinny cows dream clusters

    Yes yes yes
    I also eat whatever chocolate I want and just fit it into my calories. although I prefer something like Ghirardelli, Godiva or See's candies. If I'm gonna have chocolate I wanna make it totally worth every bite. LOL

    I keep Mars fun size in the freezer. They are about 80 cals each and when they're frozen they take a while to get through. I try to fit either one of those or a mini Cherry Ripe (also frozen) every night.

    If it's a super-dark, high-quality chocolate (I like Equal Exchange), I can eat one square and feel pretty satisfied. Not as satisfied as if I ate the whole bar :smile: , but it's rich and delicious enough that I can stop after a little bit. And I've been working my way through a dark chocolate orange one slice at a time since Christmas!

    I can't remember the brand off of the top of my head, but I love the 80%+ dark chocolate with sea salt that you see at the grocery store. And by love it... I FREAKING LOVE IT.

    Yes it's amazing! I have tried the cinnamon one and will be getting more again for sure.
