I keep hershey's kisses in the fridge and eat one or two when I feel the need. I also eat one or two cookies or a small candy bar. I keep my numbers under pretty good control so I basically eat what ever I choose to eat.

I usually have a bag of dark chocolate covered berries (blueberries, cranberries and bing cherries) that ease the craving for something sweet.

On occasion I'll treat myself to a Yoplait Light Black Forest Cake yogurt. 90 cals, 16g carbs, zero fat. If you can handle a slightly higher carb load the Yoplait whips Chocolate Mousse is really good too. 160 cals, 25g carbs, 4g fat.

If I HAVE to have chocolate I go the store and buy ONE individually wrapped Reese! That satisfies me! I don't recommend buying them & keeping them in your house though! I also love Nature Valley protein chewy bars peanut, almond, & dark choc!! Keep my blood sugars level & YUMMY!!!!!!

I keep hershey kisses in my fridge year round. The problem is the person has to be able to control urges to eat a lot of it. I stopped worrying about the food I eat unless it is high in carbs. I know what will cause me to spike and what won't. I worked hard to get my diabetes in enough control that I don't have to count every carb that goes into my mouth. I just eat in moderation. I have a spike once every couple of months but the spike isn't high enough for me to worry about.

For instance yesterday, I didn't have time to eat breakfast because I had something to do. I left the house around 10 and did what I had to do and treated myself to a bear claw and a large coffee. I didn't even feel the sugar from the bear claw which is odd because I knew it would spike me.

I recommend perhaps maybe broccoli with small dabs of low fat ranch or bleu cheese? Or maybe just a boiled egg, or a small salad? That's what I do. It's very hard to eat healthy without carbs and feel fulfilled I know. :(
