Surprisingly Good Treat

In my recent battle to lose 12 unexpected extra pounds, I dropped a decent amount of snacking and changed others. I have lost at least half of that gain and am on my way back to 204-205 pounds.
But, being a chocolate fanatic, I can't entirely do without candy or other chocolate treats, and I found one that remains relatively good for me while being pretty tasty: Weight Watchers' Nutty Nougat candy. I eat one of them a night (although, after going four nights without one, I ate two last night); they are delicious and do their job without requiring me to stuff my face.
Any suggestions for other chocolate items that aren't so bad for me would be appreciated.

I'll have to try that nougat one. I eat the 100 calorie packs and the "candy" is pretty good. My favorite is chocolate covered pretzels. (I too have the chocaholic gene).

I might lose weight if my *&&*^ %^#$# heel gets better. I may get that cortisone shot Monday, I'll let you know!

Good point; the 100-calorie packs of cookies are pretty good for road trips.

The Weight Watchers' Nutty Nougat Chew is really good, and the Almond Nougat is good, too, although a lot chewier and it sticks more to your teeth. The Weight Watchers' candy I've tried is much better than the Russell Stover and other brands of low-sugar, low-calorie candy, which are much too bland.

Yes, get the cortisone shot; your heel will never heal with your schedule without doing it.

Three musketeers has a 100 calorie bar-got a box at Target. Cures that craving well. Also peppermint patties do the trick--the regular bag size work at 2 pieces per serving. Yum. BTW, I checked out that WW candy and it does have sucalose in it!! Dont eat too many --remember my ice cream story??
