I have a huge sweet tooth, so (depending on the changes you're making in your diet) I love to buy the 100 calorie 94% fat free mini bags of popcorn. If it's a 'regular' bag (i.e. butter flavored) I sprinkle Splenda over the popcorn. I LOVE the same type of bags but Kettle Corn (salty and sweet).

Also, if I need a chocolate fix I'll buy one of the bags of tootsie rolls with mini rolls in it. The serving size is 6, so I'll actually line up 6 in front of the bag. Then it's more of a challenge for me to make those six (or less) last all day. It keeps me from sitting down with the whole bag.

Also, the Skinny Cow ice cream sandwiches (or any other lowfat variety for that matter) are good... I really like the mint sandwiches.

Hope that helps!

sugar free fat free chocolate pudding - make it with skim milk. Sometimes I dip lowfat graham crackers in it, or top it with lite cool whip.

I just made some of that choc. pudding last night. It wasn't as good as I remember it being. Kind of a waste of calories. For chocolate, my best bet is the sugar free fat free junior fudge pops. Only 50 calories each, and YUMMY! even if you eat two, that's still only 100 calories.

Yogurt

You can get small, single serve packages of yogurt - there is some sugar but also lots of healthy stuff. I like he maple flavor in Brown Cow - with cream on top. I also like chocolate tofu yougrut. For me, the trick is getting whole milk - with 6 or 8 ounces and sugar thrown in anyway, I don't think you are saving that much in the way of calories with low fat or fat free and it's much more satisfying with whole milk/regular soy milk.

I like the 90 cal Quaker choc chip bars.

I adore Sugar Free White Chocolate pudding with mixed berries (I buy the frozen berry blend at Trader joes). You can use 1/2 cup of Lite Whipped topping in place of 1/2 cup of milk and it makes it more like mousse than pudding, but it's one of my fave desserts and the berries make it so much more satisfying that a meager 1/2 cup of pudding, plus berries are packed with anti-oxidants and the whole thing is between 100-150 calories.

Popsicles are a great one in the summer. Skinny cow cookies 'n cream rules my world when I want ice cream - not because they're that much better than any other light ice cream product, but because their sandwiches are a great pre-measured portion.

Hot chocoalte made with dark cocao, splenda and skim milk is excellent for sipping on a cold evening. It's 110 calories with the ingredients I use and I can put it in an insulated cup and sip dark, chocolately perfection for a good 1/2 hour or so, plus it's quite filling. I find that I strongly prefer dutch or belgian cocao to Hershey's and I add SF Irish cream syrup if I'm in the mood for something a little more special.

And sometimes I just have a tiny serving of something decadent with a cup of hot tea. The hot tea is a really great compiment and helps fill me up so I can savor the flavor without wanting a large quantity.

One of my faves is to take strawberries and dip them into low fat chocolate pudding - it's like having fondue!

Ah, NO PUDGE FUDGE BROWNIE MIX, you can do single servings, 2 tbsp mix and 1 tbsp vanilla non-fat yogurt nuk it for a min or so, its sweet and fabulous. I love it without even cooking it as well, its almost like fudge.
