frozen mini charleston chews - 15 cals each or so, and 2 will be a quick cure
fat free jello pudding snacks
Lifesavers Sourz hard candy
Diet Rite soda - cola and orange, I think the other flavors are gross
Diet Swiss Miss hot cocoa - only 25 calories per packet, and I think it tastes the same as the other stuff - but I make it with a little less water than it recommends so it's more chocolatey

Extremely high-end dark chocolate allows me to eat something sweet, but it's so rich that I am satisfied after just a little bit (Scharfen Berger is my fav)

Make it very, very hard to get to the sweets. That can behard to do at work sometimes, I know, but you have control at home - if you have to go to the grocery or make a batch of cookies in order to have something sweet to eat, you're much less likely to do it.

Avoid sugar as much as possible in the mornings. For whatever reason, I find I definitely crave sugar all day if I eat it first thing in the morning. I have to make sure I have some protein and some healthy carbs well before my first bit of sugar...to this end, maybe add your sugar cravings to your log for a while, until you know your triggers, and then work on avoiding those triggers at all cost!

I love Slim-fast snack bars; they have one that tastes just like Butterfinger and another that tastes just like Snickers. I also eat low-fat, no sugar added ice cream, and Weight Watchers Smart Ones frozen desserts & ice cream. I could never just not eat sweets, but eating these allows me to give in to my cravings while still losing weight.

Someone mentioned Scharfen Berger. I noticed when I want something really sweet I can eat a square or 2, 3 of dark chocolate and its totally satisfing. I notice that if I eat 70% dark that its sweet but after it has a bit of an after taste so I don't really want anymore.

I use the dark chocolate trick, Luna bars (they have some awesome flavors), and skinny cow ice cream sandwhiches (ice cream is my weakness!)

Oh and one time on here, someone mentioned heating up a Cinnamon Sugar Granola Bar in the micro for a few seconds. I tried it and it is soooooo good!

I'll eat a few (2-3) Dove dark chocolate pieces. The dark chocolate has antioxidants as well so it's good for you too! I keep some in a jar (not a clear jar) in my cupboard. Then, if I really feel like I need something sweet I have to really want it and think about it and remember what I have available. And like someone else here wrote, it's a little bitter but still rich and you don't need many to kill the craving.

Sugar free pudding cups are also a great creamy treat.
