    I love my choc and when I get a craving I just fit it into my allowance, I aim for 1200 a day. Maybe go for malteasers or milky ways they are quite low in calories. x

    skinny cow ice lollys are great too the choc ones are 97cals each i think and you can suck them and make them last! this week im leaving 100 cals for the end of the day for either a skinny cow if im feeling choc cravings or philadelpia extra light pot 38 cals and 10 mini bread sticks 5 cals each if im craving savory

    I always leave cals for the evening as thats when I snack! Then, if I don't snack, I have saved some extra! Bonus!

    When I do need a choccie fix, although the hot choc is nice, its not very substantial. I generally have a WW bar - they are about 80 cals and well worth it. If I just want something sweet then I have a mini twister at 40cals. If I want a savoury snack then I either have Skips or baked crisps or some crackers with philly.

    My favourites for when im craving chocolate are options hot choclate for 40 calories a cup, and its even nice cold, like a milkshake! Or the chocolate flavoured mini milk ice lollies & an amazing 30 calories!! You could even have 2! :)

    If i really want chocolate and nothing is going to be able to substitute it I find those galaxy bubbles the best thing. It feels like your eating a normal full chocolate bar (let the pieces melt in your mouth :D) but theres only about 160-170 calories - so half the amount of a normal bar.
    Stops me wanting more unlike WW bars or milky ways

    The ice lollys are a good tip though, it's getting to be the weather for them too. I'll have to get some in :)

    I recently have started getting the chocolate chip cereal bars by kelloggs, they are currently £1.50 in Tesco express for 6 in a box and are 83 calories each taste far naughtier than they are so helps me and if I feel like being really bad with cravings I have 2 and still less than a average chocolate bar :)

    The Alpen Light bars, chocolate & fudge flavour, are tasty but not very substantial but then they are only 60 cals each!

    I'm also going to seek out these mini milks they sound amazing...

    I recently bought these Kellogs Fibre Plus bars, dunno if they're new but I'd never seen them before, they look VERY chocolatey and say they give 20% of your daily dietary fibre, I haven't tried them yet but will be having one before I set out on my bike ride tomorrow and let you know if they're any good.

    They also do a milk chocolate variety but I prefer dark.

    EDIT: oh yeah, they are 100 cals each
