I was recently given the opportunity to try out Chex Mix bars from My Blog Spark and General Mills.  I can’t say that they are my favorite (that’s another General Mills bar) but they were good.  My kids however would say that they were a favorite.  I made the mistake of explaining that they had cereal in them so one of my “too smart for their own good” 4 year olds decided that this made it an acceptable request for breakfast every morning.  I didn’t know what to say at first but then re-read the information sent with them:

they have less than 150 calories per bar and provide at least 8 grams of whole grain per serving (48 grams recommended daily)

The whole grains won me over and I decided this might be better for her than another more sugary breakfast option with no whole grains.  She was victorious and ate enjoyed breakfast wholeheartedly until the box was gone.  (Don’t worry breakfast also includes yogurt and fruit most mornings).  I’m also glad for her that Chex Mix bars are part of the Mage sale this week at Kroger.

Back to us adults though, this is really a great snack option if you crave sweets or chocolate.  Get your fix and stay healthy at the same time!  I like guilt-free treats.

Would you like to try them? Two readers will each win 2 boxes of Chex Mix bars!

To enter leave a comment of your biggest food craving or a healthy way to fix it.  I will pick the winners tomorrow.

    • Larissa

      My favorite cravings are normally crunchy things. It helps when I am stressed. Instead of eating what I want (Doritos) last night I ate a yummy salad.

    • Julie

      I am not a healthy eater and love salt! but i have found that roasted garlic hummus with pita bread (or Stacy’s Pita chips..yum) is really good. Been thinking about it all this week. When does that go on sale! And can we freeze hummus?!?

    • Bobbie

      Vanila Home Made Ice cream. Don’t know a healthy way to fix it.

    • Chantel

      I love chocolate, so I love to get Nutella or make a chocolate fondue and eat it with fruit for dessert. The fruit fills me up and helps the calories in the chocolate go a long way.

    • Stephanie Jones

      Ice cream!! I have started keep the Jello 60 pudding cups on hand… they are not ice cream but the portion control and taste is great. That way I do not eat 1/2 a carton of ice cream :)

    • CouponNERD

      I crave crunchy…. eating coleslaw right now.
      When I crave chocolate, a handful of cereal or a sugar free fudge pop does it.

    • CJ

      My biggest food craving is ice cream, always! I’m addicted to it, any kind of it. The healthiest way I’ve found to get my “fix” is the Weight Watchers singles Chocolate Fudge Chip. They are SO GOOD!

    • Jennifer

      When pregnant I craved fried onion rings, but not the onions just the fried batter!

    • Catrina

      I love chocolate. If I’m craving sweets I try to eat fruit instead.

    • Amy


    • Mary

      White Chocolate Bread Pudding! YUMMY!

    • Carly

      Wish I had a healthy alternative to CHOCOLATE… I try to feel better about the amount that I eat since it is dark chocolate!

    • Mikki

      All things sweet! Krispy Kreme doughnuts make me salivate whether I am hungry or not!

    • ASW

      Cookie dough at night before I go to bed!

    • Laura

      crave – chocolate. fix it – water.

    • Lindsay

      I love this bars!!! They are my husband’s favorite!

    • Jenni A

      My favorite snack is ice cream, but I have found that fruit smoothies using yogurt, frozen bananas and strawberries give me that shake-like consistency that I crave. It is very satisfying and if you add a scoop of protein powder it can be a complete breakfast.

    • Terry E.

      Anything sweet! Icecream, chocolate, cookies……etc…I love them all!!

    • Lisa Hawley

      Dark Chocolate! All things are fine in moderation!!

    • Kam

      I LOVE Rushes cheeseburgers. When I was pregnant, I would eat them frequently. Not sure how to make those healthier!?

    • ashley

      Ice cream! So I froze some GoGurt tubes I got for cheap after sale and coupons, and it did the trick.

    • ice cream and there is no fix for it….belive me, i’ve tried!

    • Wendy

      I crave grilled Red Peppers! They are fantastic for you and have a nice soft crunch when bite into them, and they go great with any meal. My little girl loves to eat them raw with a fres dill dip. Great for snacks in the lunch box too:)

      Thanks Jenny for the site!!

    • Denise

      Got addicted to ice cream topped with Cap’n Crunch when I was pregnant!! Unfortunately I can no longer blame the baby for this terrible snack!!!

    • Meredith

      Anything crunchy and saltly!

    • Favorite Crave – Chocolate covered almonds —OMG they are good!I haven’t found a replacement, so maybe these would work. I crave sweet and salty!!!!

    • Heather

      Biggest food craving is chocolate! Healthy way to take care of it? Make brownies and NOT eat the whole thing…I share them with the family. LOL!

    • Debbie Herbert

      My biggest craving is CHOCOLATE. I try to assuage it by drinking hot chocolate or sugar free chocolate pudding. Sometimes it works. :)


    • jeff

      Crave – doughnuts….instead I try to drink water. Please help a guy out!

    • Hannah

      tear and bake cookie dough. one peice (uncooked) usually fixes the craving and at 40 calories, isn’t too bad.

    • Taylor

      The Totino’s Pizza Rolls that I got “for the kids”!!!

    • Ln

      My biggest food craving is a gravy biscuit and sweet tea from Jack’s. YUM!

    • Christine

      I absolutely LOVE sweets but I have been on a kick for avacados lately! I love to chop up avacados, onions, cilatro, tomatos and squeeze a little lemon juice in with it…. its greata on chips or even by itself!

    • mollie cargill

      I LOVE LOVE LOVE fruit….I guess that is pretty healthy!

    • Kelly

      I love food.

    • Kim

      Chocolate, something crunchy & salty _ makes choc. pretzels or choc. covered nuts high on the list.

      M&M peanuts, Sun Chips. I don’t even bother trying to tame those

    • Dani

      My Family craves icecream. If there are no good sales (and no good cpns) out there. We make it right at home – its the more healthy aproach. Here is how we do it. Depending on the sesonal fruits we first freeze them or get them at frozen at Aldi. We put powdered sugar in the blender and add the frozen fruits. Chopp them up and to make things more creamy we add half and half cream and blend till smooth. Superb! (I have a special blender – dont know if this will work with others. In case you wanna try – be careful not to wreck it!)

    • Tiffany

      I LOVE ice cream. Frozen grapes are great for a healthy snack.

    • Ashley in FL

      Anything with chocolate is good for you! :) Yummmmmm.

    • Megan

      I love to have a little bowl of Cocoa Krispies and milk when I’m craving chocolate. It’s certainly not healthy, but it’s a lot better than a real dessert.

    • Farah

      One of my favorites is M&M’s and peanuts, but not peanut M&M’s. I like the sweet and salty taste you get.

    • Angela

      My biggest food craving is Chocolate! And I fix it by drinking a small glass of 1% Chocolate Milk. :-)

    • MRB

      CHOCOLATE!!!!! By far, hands down. I’ve recently started buying 3 Musketeers bars (on sale, and/or w/ q’s, of course!) and cutting them in half or thirds. I place them in baggies and freeze them. When the sweet tooth or chocolate cravings kick in, one piece of these is often enough to do the trick. For some reason, the frozen confection seems richer to me than the room temp. I’m trying to lose weight, and as a certified, card-carrying choc-aholic, it’s hard, but this is working for me. Two pieces of Dove chocolates also do the trick, but since those tend to be more expensive, I’ve stocked up on the 3 Musketeers this week at Wag’s.

    • cathy

      My kids like sugar filled cereal for breakfast, not so good for them. We recently tried the Kellogg’s mini bites(trying to get more fiber in their diet). They loved them especially the chocolate.

    • Barbara

      Dark chocolate–good and healthy. I love the dark chocolate blueberries and cranberries.

    • Julie Gonczi

      Would love to try a box! Thanks for the great site and information!

    • I would love to try them. I tried the turtlt chex mis for the first time this weekend. What was not to love? Sweet, salty, crunchy!

    • Apparently I need to spellcheck. ;}

    • Steve

      We just picked up some of the dark chocolate ones and my and I are hooked!!!

    • Michelle

      like most everyone else on here, I love chocolate!! I try to make it healthy by choosing dark chocolate, or I make hot chocolate using milk, a little sugar, and cocoa powder–healthier than the powdered mix, and I get my calcium! I also love Chick-fil-A’s strawberry milkshakes, they are the best! I don’t even try to make that healthy, I just enjoy it!

    • Jonathan

      Just got some from Kroger on their mega sale. My kids like them in their lunch.

      My biggest food craving is butterscotch malts!

    • Melissa S.

      Crunchy and sweet or salty is what I crave. I haven’t had them lately but Golden Graham bars are a very satisfying treat. Chocolate, marshmallow and Golden Grahams – just like a S’more =) Or, Blue Bell Cookies and Cream ice cream but too much of that could be very dangerous!

    • Chassie

      I take chex mix, pretezels, M&M’s and melt white chocole on it let it cool and enjoy!!! it is to die 4

    • Amanda

      My biggest craving is chocolate! My healthiest way to fix it is to chew a piece of gum or go for a run. SOMETIMES i can eat a small piece of it and that will fix it- but sometimes i want more!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • My favotite treat is snow cream icecream by mayfield.My mom made snow cream from fresh snow as a child and this taste just like it!! It is also lower in calories than regular icecream so I feel Iam being good but secretly knowing Iam getting a great treat!!!!!!!!

    • Stacie

      I crave Chips Deluxe chocolate chip cookies with a nice tall glass of cold whole milk! I love to dip my cookies until they are about to fall apart and then just let them melt in my mouth! ARGH, now I really want some! Might have to send the husband to the store now! I also sometimes crave veggies, I love salads! I had salad for supper last night and lunch today! Spinach dip, love it!!!! Well, I could go on and on about cravings, I’m always craving something!

    • Christina

      My temptations are when a bowl of M&M’s are just sitting there on the table…you can’t just eat a handful, you just keep going back. To fix this would of course don’t put the bowl out or hope you don’t see it which usually doesn’t happen. So, limit it, say you’ll have 1 handful and put it away!

    • My favorite snack is ice cream. Fatty, high calorie, creamy, delicious ice cream. And to make the lack of nutrition worse, I like to eat my ice cream when the house is quiet, meaning after the kids are asleep. Just recently I’ve come up with a healthy substitution. Frozen yogurt smoothies with fresh or frozen fruit. It satisfies my craving and it makes me feel happy.

    • Elon


    • Lauren

      I usually crave ice cream – but it has to be partially melted (think a Wendy’s Frosty), so in the microwave it goes for about ten seconds! YUM! I know, I’m wierd, lol!

    • What about dipping nuts in leftover frosting? It’s my favorite.

    • Dark Chocolate…any way, any day! I would love to try these!

    • Janie

      When I have a craving for something sweet, it has to be chocolate everytime. Nothing can even come close to it. lol.

    • Cori

      Dark Chocolate swirled cheescake – yum!

    • jonna franklin

      i love anything chocolate jonnamom4

    • Kim

      I often crave Dibs. Bite sized ice cream covered in chocolate. Yum! To curb this craving I freeze grapes just until they are slushy – not yet rock solid.

    • alison

      i always want peanut butter ice cream with chocolate.

    • I’d love to try it!

    • Pamela

      I love Starbucks….not just coffee…the good stuff…that has a bazillion calories. I found the International coffee single packs of iced coffee mixes (for iced coffee) They have them at Walmart for 1.44 or 1.66 each and w/$1 off coupon I have been getting them for less than .50 cents a box of 6. I mix them with ice water and Silk milk..also purchased w/coupons and they are DELICIOUS and darn near as good as starbucks! The best part is …they are a fraction of the price and guess what? They only have 60 calories before milk. Milk is only about 45 calories and I add some water and ice. Picks me right up in a hurry in the morning and I can still have a bagel or toast. What a tasty bargain!

    • Stephanie

      I’m 37 week pregnant and for the last couple nights I have been eating chex mix. I usually don’t care for it all that much but my son loves it. I ate a whole bag in two nights by myself.

      Another craving, Chocolate! I finally dug into all my cheap candy I have got over the summer.

    • Stacy B

      I love chocolate, I try to make it healther by eating tootsie rolls!

    • Amy

      Crave – chex mix; fix – don’t buy it :)

    • Tracie

      ICE CREAM!!! Hands down! – To stay away, I can’t buy it!

    • Nichole in GA

      I love to dip things! Chips and dip, fruit and dip, crackers and dip, veggies and dip… you name it! I’m actually sitting here eating Sweet Roasted Red Pepper Hummus and Crackers. Not to bad, but not to good since I could eat the whole thing.

    • Lori

      Chocolate. I usually opt for hot choc. or I take a tbsp of choc. syrup and dip fruit into it.

    • MIKE




    • Trina

      I love things that are sweet and salty, but my very favorite is anything with chocolate and marshmallow together! It’s the best!

    • JoAnna

      ~~>Chocolate cover pretzals with peanut butter ice cream <~~

      Why FIGHT it ??? :)

    • We all love chocolate. I know that is my worst craving!! The healthier way to get the fix is to indulge in semisweet or dark. It has more antioxidants and beneficial monounsaturated fats. Everything in moderation of course!

    • Fiber One granola bars.

    • heather

      Fat free key lime yogurt with reduced fat graham cracker sticks – kicks the urge to eat key lime pie! Mmmm!

    • Shawn

      Right now, my food craving is anything sweet I can quickly get in my mouth. I’m nursing my newborn and hunger is with me all day!!!! My weakness is chocolate fudge brownie sundaes. The only way to fix it would be to stay away from the restaurants that serve it! :)

    • aubrae

      Chocolate; healthy way to fix it is Mr. Salty 100 calorie pack covered pretzels or oddly enough a small scoop of Jif!

    • Alyssa

      For sweet cravings, I like Warm Delights minis or Fiber One bars (chocolate & oats – YUM-O !!) Sea salt bagel chips or chips and salsa are what I grab when I yearn for something salty.

    • Robin in Roswell

      Too bad that they have peanuts. My kids do not like any nuts except cashews. But I like them!

    • Amy B.

      I always have cravings for chocolate or cheese. Can usually make cravings go away by eating a handful of almonds! I prefer the smoked ones!

    • brandi

      Chocolate-fix it with Kudos or other chocolatey treats

    • mel

      love chocolate… cake… ice cream….but warm delights are so yummy.

    • jessica

      Chocolate of course so I eat sugar free jello pudding to try to help curb it!

    • Amber

      Chocolate!! I try to be good and substitute fruit bars or fruit cups…never works. An hour later I still want chocolate!!!

    • Christine Long

      PB & Chocolate – together or separate! I usually try to substitute bad options with: 2 graham cracker squares spread with a little bit of PB and a couple of chocolate chips. Not bad at all.

    • Allyson

      I am also a chocoholic…I try to eat a Curves bar. When that is not going to work…I hit the CVS/Wag bag that has all the cheap/free candies!! (milky way=YUM)

    • Tonya in jax

      COOKIES! And when I want to avoid them, I go brush my teeth. Something about a fresh mouth and chocolate chip cookies just sounds gross, so it curbs the craving.

    • Erin

      My biggest food craving is peanut butter! A healthy way to get my peanut butter fix is a low cal/low fat peanut butter granola bar.

    • Loriane Duncan

      i love these bars, i like them for breakfast also

    • Tripp Duncan

      this makes for a great morning

    • thomas owens

      i love these!

    • marggie owens

      mmmmmm, sweetness!

    • marggie owens

      oh la la, i love these

    • Amanda K

      I love chocolate covered peanuts or raisins

    • Cake!

    • Heather

      chocolate from pudding to brownies

    • I LOVE chocolate! I mean I love it!!! The best way I have found to curb that candy bar craving is to eat a Kashi Dark Chocolate Oatmeal cookie. They are an excellent source of fiber and vitamens and just one is all I need to feel satisfied.

    • Melanie

      I had a weird craving while pregnant. For Italian salad dressing!

    • Shelly

      Funny you posted this . . I just now ate one of these Chex Mix bars. Chocolate & Caramel, yummy! I bought several boxes at the Kroger Mega Sale and I’m going back for more later this week! :-)

    • Ashley

      Anything chocolate!

    • Christine W

      Chocolate is my favorite snack. To make it healthy, I started eating the Jello 100 calorie refrigerated pudding cups. Very yummy and mostly guilt-free!

    • Amy

      What woman doesn’t love chocolate! But when I am trying to control calories and still enjoy something sweet I really like Spec K’s Fruit & Yogurt cereal (I never eat it with milk – just dry like trail mix)!

    • Kim

      Chocolate !!!!!!!

    • Beth

      I also love chocolate. I actuallt eat these Chex Mix bars to help curb the craving. I gues they aren’t as bad as the Hershey’s bar I would REALLY love to have!

    • wendy

      My biggest craving is Moosetracks ice cream–yum!

    • MH


    • amy

      My biggest craving is ice cream, although those bars look really good!

    • Delores

      cravings… well, chips, french fries, and chocolate. I fix them by eating baked chips, making homemade potato wedges, and eating chocolate whenever I want. No, just kidding. We pretty much eat sweets only on special days (Sundays, bdays, etc) so I usually get in a small bag of m&ms or something like that on one of those days.

    • Alyssa

      I was told that applesauce made your stomach feel more full, so I eat a cup of that, then maybe later have a smaller portion of whatever I’m craving…like brownies!

    • Joy Gleason

      I love any granola bars, but Fiber One are my favorite. Perfect for the chocolate craving.

    • Hunter T

      Ice cream! Sadly there is no healthy way to fix that. But I guess I could substitute fro-yo.

    • Diann

      I love crunchy snacks so I make a delicious homemade granola with oats, wheat germ, nuts, coconut and honey. This is great for breakfast or with yogurt and …. when the chocolate graving hits, I throw in a few semi sweet chocolate morsels and justify it knowing that at least the granola is good for me.

    • I love, love, love key lime pie. The best way to cure this craving is the Yoplait key lime yogurt. The texture is similar with WAY less calories!

    • .Jennifer

      My favorite treat is chocolate.

    • Heather

      Toffenut lattes

    • Pat

      I love anything that crunches, potato chips, Cheetos, pretzels, etc. But they aren’t good for me. So my substitue is celery, yellow squash, carrots, zuchinni and other hard vegetables, sliced raw and sometimes lightly salted. I’ll keep these by my side and try and avoid those cravings. :)

    • megan c

      doritos and pickles! its a great combination but its best to buy the baked version. still tastes awesome!!!!!!!!!!

    • Melinda

      My biggest food craving would have to be Hershey Chocolate Kisses dipped in peanut butter. :)

    • Bree

      My biggest craving is M & Ms!

    • Nelen

      I Love Ice Cream:)

    • Stacie

      My biggest craving is dark chocolate, usually mid-evening sometime, after the kids are in bed! And the healthy way I fix it is to keep a small stash of high quality dark chocolate hidden away… when I have the craving, I eat just suck on one small piece slowly. It totally does the trick, and makes me very happy!!! :)

    • Meredith

      My family loves turtle tracks mayfield icecream. The turtle bars seem like a good way to adjust our craving to a healthier snack.

    • I can’t drink milk or lactos free milk nor silk milk but I love cereal. It would be great to be able to eat cereal with out the worry of using milk.

    • Sissy

      Chocolate cravings come hard and often. :-) Just had a Ghiradelli Ultimate Fudge Brownie w/ icing. Sometimes I can just take a small portion of chocolate chips (semisweet or dark) and make them last a long time, eating just one at a time between tasks at home.

    • elizabeth robison

      Chocolate…of course!

    • My favorite craving is crunch n much with carmel. Yum!!!! I love stuff that is crunchy and salty.

    • Deena

      I try to keep a “snack bag” in the car loaded with things the children can eat on the run. One of the big hits has been ritz crackers and peanut butter. A quick, easy treat that everyone enjoys; even the baby sans peanut butter.

    • Lorie

      Chocolate is my big thing and I just try to eat it in moderation – not like my husband who sits and can eat a whole large bag of plain M&Ms and not gain an ounce! I also love Mexican Food – chips, salsa and cheese dip – YUMMO- now I want some!

    • Allie

      Dairy Queen blizzard with Reese’s peanut butter cups! Mmmmm, makes me want one right now!

    • Celena

      I crave chocolate or just something sweet after dinner usually like a dessert and I satisfy that craving with a fiber one chocolate & oats bar, not to bad for you. Has lots of fiber.

    • I love, love, love peanut butter. Especially in the morning for breakfast. So I pop half a mini whole grain bagel in the toaster, spread a little peanut butter and a couple slices of banana. I get my fix of peanut butter and feel like I’m getting a healthy snack!

    • Nancy

      They are so GOOD! I bought them the last time they were on sale at publix! Loved them!

    • Your contests are great. I love Chex Mix, so these should be really good.

    • Li

      I would love to win these for my kids. I’ve never bought them but I am pretty sure they taste great!

    • Ashton

      My biggest food craving is Pasta!! Chocolate would be second!

    • My biggest craving is CHOCOLATE! I have decided just eating it in the form of Chocolate Chips is best, without the breading of cupcakes or cookies! I keep a bag of c. chips in the freezer, and munch when I get a craving!

    • Brittany

      I love these!

    • Rhonda

      I’m not a snacker at all. If I crave anything, it is for non-snack items like, sushi, pizza, mashed potatoes with cream gravy, fancy dinner salad with lots of fatty stuff (bleu cheese, dressing), fried potatoes, etc. Okay, looking at my list, I’d have to say that I crave FAT! Well, except for the sushi.


    • Christy

      Chocolate!! I love dark chocolate. I just try not to eat too much of it!!

    • Chanele

      Since moving from my home state of Louisiana to Houston, my biggest craving is a shrimp poboy. Too bad noone can make one like my cajun father-in-law.

    • Dawn Stribling

      The question would be what don’t I crave? LOL I would have to say chocolate, though, if I could only pick one.

    • Michelle

      ICE CREAM!! Even low fat versions are pretty tasty and help the cravings!! :)

    • Lynda

      The Chex Mix bars are great. They satify two of my cravings…something crunchy and something CHOCOLATE. They aren’t bad for you either.

    • Christie

      I would love to try the Chex bars.

      My favorite way to fix a craving:

      I crave salty popcorn at night, which does not bode well with my lowish-carb diet. Instead, I boil up some delicious edamame from Cascadian farms, toss in some Morton’s lite salt and snack away. Great treat for movie nights on the couch!

      Hope I win!

    • Kristin

      I actually love these Chex mix bars and have been waiting for them to go back on sale!

    • Kim

      I love Publix frozen yogurt — Black Jack Cherry. Yummmmmmm.

    • Tina

      For breakfast I like to eat whole grain low fat frozen waffles topped with a lower sugar yogurt and fresh fruit. This is much healthier than drowning them in syrup!

    • I love any Chocolate! These Chex Bars would probably be the lowest calorie only 150!!!!!!!

    • Shanna

      I love chips!!! I just discovered Veggie Straws at Costco!! Love them.

    • I love dessert before bed..so I mix sliced strawberries (which I previously sprinkled with splenda and placed in the fridge to marinate) with on 60 calorie vanilla pudding and a dollop of fat free whipped cream…sometimes when making it for me and hubby I also add a 1/2 of banana….YUMMMMMM!!

    • Kasonya

      Yougurt sprinkled with unsalted sunflower seeds and crushed waffle cones or graham crackers. YUM!

    • Christy

      I usually crave sweet, cold things. I am a big ice cream lover, but cold watermelon usually soothes that craving just fine!

    • Lori Beck

      I love chocolate but I also love salty things like chips. The turtle chex mix bars are the perfect fix to satisfy both cravings!!! Mmmmmmm……

    • Diane

      I love bread! I would love to try the Chex Bars :)

    • Laura N.

      My biggest cravings are chips and salsa from our local Mexican Restaurant. Some evenings when my husband and I want to kick back and watch a movie, we pick up some to go. YUMMY!

    • Kathy Scott

      I love chocolate ice cream. I freeze Jello sugar free pudding cups and it is just like ice cream but only 60 calories.

    • Christi

      Believe it or not the Chex Mix bars are some of my favorites!

    • chocolate is my biggest craving – any and all. But, I’m allergic to it, so that’s how I solve not eating too much!

    • Katie

      My biggest weakness would have to be ice cream, I’ve never been able to turn it down!

    • Stephanie B

      Nachos….yummy! I do make my own and use black beans instead of beef and add lots of tomatoes and black olives..does that count? :P

    • Erin

      kc masterpiece chips with baked beans decadent :)

    • Heather S

      I love the idea of Nutella for fondue. I usually have to have sweet and salty together. Nature Made Sweet and Salty bars save the day in a crunch.

    • Sharon

      I am addicted to chocolate! I love candy bars, ice cream, and even chocolate milk!! I have lost 80 pounds in the last 1 1/2 years so I have to try to behave and eat it in moderation. The chex mix bars look like a “healthy” version and would be a good choice for me to satisfy my addiction! Ha! Ha!

    • Catherine

      My current craving is Klondike Bars. I don’t think there is any help there…..maybe the skinny cow? But I don’t have any q’s for those!

    • Tricia Z

      Chocolate and peanut butter!

    • My biggest craving is chocolate. Do I really need to do anything to fix this? Maybe if I could mix it in with a little bit of salad the good would balance the bad, and I’d come out even in the end.

    • Michelle

      Dark chocolate! Hey, it has antioxidants, right?!

    • Carole

      LOVE nuts and chocolate, especially the combination of both of them; my healthy twist is to make walnut chocolate chunk brownies with applesauce instead of oil!! :-)

    • Andrea

      This may sound funny, but lemon bars satisfy me…I love them!

    • Sara

      Definitely chocolate, and a healthy option is the sugar free jello pudding with some light cool whip on top! Thanks for the giveaway!

    • Kathleen

      Chocolate – dark chocolate reese’s to be exact. Haven’t come up with a healthy alternative yet!

    • Amy

      I looove Triscuits w/ham & cheese melted on them. I also like to put salsa on them and eat them w/green olives…yummy!

    • My favorite craving would have to be pop corn….not the low fat popcorn, but the movie theater butter popcorn.

    • Teresa-QOCD

      Reese’s peanut butter cups. Healthy alternative – popcorn works because you get to eat alot.

    • Sarah Scott

      I’ve never won anything! Please pick me!! I would love to try them for FREE… it would make my day!

      I really enjoyed your seminar at New Vision last weekend!

    • Sarah Scott

      I’ve never won anything! Please pick me!! I would love to try them for FREE… it would make my day!

      I really enjoyed your seminar at New Vision last weekend!

      Chocolate is my biggest food craving. I chew it up and spit it out… learned that trick from Dolly Parton. Hey, I’m from TN. It doesn’t make you gain weight if you don’t swallow it.

    • Stacy

      Peanut Butter M&M’s…no replacement for it!

    • Nicole V

      My biggest food craving is chocolate and peanut butter. So these chex mix bars are perfect healthier mix!

    • Deanna

      Love chocolate! Is there a healthy way to eat it?!?!?!

    • Greg

      Chocolate rules the roost at our house, by far everyone’s favorite!! No healthy alternative can touch it — although these Chex bars come close!

    • Kendra

      My biggest food craving is chips and salsa at a Mexican restaurant. I can eat 2 baskets alone! I bought a box of the Chex Mix Turtle bars from coupon tips from this site. My husband opened one, took a bite, and laid it on the counter to go get a drink. I took a little bite when he wasn’t looking and loved it. I ate the rest and felt bad (Especially since we are doing “The Love Dare”) and replaced the empty wrapper with a fresh Turtle bar for him. He never even noticed. Girls are slick like that! I like the splash of chocolate in it. It was good after a long day’s work. Besides, stressed backwards is desserts, after all! My healthy alternative to junk food sweets is an apple with some reduced fat peanut butter. Great energy snack for runners!

    • Sharon

      I love chocolate and I love almonds so the Cocoa Roasted almonds by Emerald nuts satifies both of those cravings at the same time!!!!

    • Karen

      Peanut butter…I eat it on vanilla wafers, cinnamon honey grahams with applesauce or apple butter on top, or in a smoothie with bananas and chocolate!

    • Beth

      My weakness is chocolate. Especially those 2 bite brownies at Kroger YUMM!!

    • Morgan

      My favorite treat that I actually eat daily :) A handful of almonds with a handful of chocolate chips :) It tastes like a herserys with almond bar.

    • Jarrod B

      To enter leave a comment of your biggest food craving or a healthy way to fix it. I will pick the winners tomorrow.

      I ALWAYS Crave salty with sweet, BUT not at the same time. So here’s the round robin of my crave.

      Breyers Mint Choc Chip ice cream, but not straight out of the freezer, I like it soft and creamy. Top it with Nestle Choc Milk Powder, the syrups not good enough. Sometimes I add Reeses Puff Cereal, depends on my mood.

      That rounds out the sweet, now the Salty comes 15-30min later.

      I start with Clausins Pickles (Garlics the best) followed by planters peanuts and OJ.

      Ohhhhhh…..thats a good night…

      Jarrod B.

    • Charity

      I love chocolate but have been trying to be good.

    • Krystal

      Ben and Jerry’s Smore’s ice cream. I haven’t been able to find a way to fix it yet!

    • Tabitha

      Chocolate!!! Brownies, cookies, ice cream…anything chocolate!!!

    • Mollie

      I love chocolate! I keep a Dove Dark Chocolate bar in the freezer and break off a piece whenever I need a chocolate fix!

    • russell

      Potted meat patte on saltine crackers. MMMMMMM! I make it with one can of potted meat, 2 tablespoons of mayo, and a dash of onion powder and garlic powder. Mix it all up, put it on a cracker, and you have yummy goodness!!!!!

      **Jenny Here**
      I don’t see the yummy, but each to his own…

    • Lee

      Chocolate is my ultimate craving and I sometimes drink a glass of chocolate low-fat milk or a cup of hot cocoa to satisfy my urge. :)

    • Larry

      Pralines…. can’t get enough of them!

    • ANYTHING sweet!!!

    • Stephanie

      Chocolate is by far my favorite…often a small glass of low-fat chocolate milk does the trick.

    • april k

      ice cream! frozen grapes make a great healthy option

    • Cristina

      Crema de leche’s my fave! Hard to find, though.

    • icecream, I put bananas in to freezer and it taste like icecream.

    • I work in home health and am always on the road. I keep a can of cashews/almond mix to snack on-just a few at a time, between patients. When the Kashi was on such a great sale a few weeks back at CVS, those granola bars were my in-route treats. I loved them. Can’t wait until they are 16 cents again!

    • Stephanie

      I anything sugary – doughnuts and cake – yum.

    • Ginger


    • molly mcdonald

      I like anything that is not good for you!

    • Nicole B

      I LOVE chocolate!!!! I found that the chocolate Honey Bunches of Oats are really good and healthier than a candy bar.

    • Melissa L

      Ice cream or sugary candy, like Sweedish Fish or Hot Tamales.

    • Anita Shipley

      When I’m not craving sweets then it’s popcorn!

    • Catherine

      Chocolate cheese cake

    • Dina


    • Lisa

      My five children and I love chocolate, chex mix and granola bar, this has to be a good combo of all three.

    • Julie

      when i was pregnant I craved water…only water. i drank probably 2 liters a day! go figure.

    • Stacy

      I’m pregnant and really like salty snacks. I buy 100 calorie snacks to satisfy my cravings without eating too much junk food.

    • Andrea

      I love key lime pie, but, as a Weight Watchers lifetimer, I can’t dig those calories. I’ve found an awesome substitute that really satisfies. Fiber One’s key lime pie flavored yogurt with low fat graham crackers for dipping tastes just like the real thing…no kidding. The new formulation of Fiber One yogurt only has 40 calories and a sheet of graham crackers has about 60.

    • My biggest craving is sweets! The only way I have figured out to tame it is to stock up on sugar free gum and pop a piece whenever I want to eat, or brush my teeth if I have the extra time. Either one of them make my mouth feel fresh, minty and clean, so I don’t want to eat anything that makes it feel icky :)

    • Christen

      I am 39 weeks pregnant with gestational diabetes and will be induced this Wed (Aug 26th) and I LOVE BARS of almost any sort (and I haven’t been able to have many for weeks now) and I also have craved chocolate and anything that tastes sweet for the last 11 weeks. Can’t wait until next Thurs when I can finally indulge!!!

    • JessC

      Ohh anything chocolate of course! A bag of Doves makes me happy…some Black Pepper popcorn when I whan a salty (more healthy) treat!

    • Chocolate ice cream!
      98% fat free Purity chocolate ice cream….
      get your chocolate fix- cant tell its 98% fat free
      PLUS get a full serving of calcium!

    • Jamie

      Biggest craving is definitely chocolate. The only way I have found not to indulge is just not to have it around at all!

    • Vanessa

      I crave something sweet, usually in front of the TV a couple of hours after dinner… I have been having Lemon Gelato (Luigi, they were B1G1 last week at Publix) and they satisfy my sweet tooth!!

    • Chocolate, especially chocolate covered nuts!

    • I seem to have two favorite cravings…one-something sweet and the second-something salty. This looks like a good, “healthy” combination of both. Look forward to trying them.

    • Brenda L.

      I love chocolate and crave it often. Thanks to my amazing daughter I have learned to keep a bag of mini sugar free chocolate chips in the freezer in order to have a quick and healthy alternative to the cookies, cake, brownies, and ice cream lurking around my house.

    • meg

      Definitely chocolate, 3pm usually and try to fix it with something like the fiber one chocolate bars…yum!

    • Elizabeth

      I crave cheese, so i grate a little bit off very sharp cheddar on 100 calorie popcorn and microwave it for 30 seconds until it melts. YUM!

    • Kelly

      I love Ramen noodles!! I don’t know a way to make them healthy, just don’t use the whole seasoning packet, too much salt.

    • Christy

      A spoonful of Starbucks mocha frappuchino ice cream!! Yum!

    • Mandy Gabers

      My favorite things to eat are creamed corn homemade of course and fried pork chops with rice and tomato gravy. I only get this when I go back home to visit momma though…;( Now I am sad thinking about momma!

    • Kristy

      I love microwave popcorn with a little Texas Pete hot sauce!

    • Chocolate, Chocolate, Chocolate!!! I love anything chocolate.

      The only way I can keep it out of my mouth is with gum or coffee. But not both at the same time. Blah~

    • Beth

      I’m the weirdo in my family who doesn’t really crave sweets. I like savory, salty food. I could eat an entire jar of green olives. I also keep a jar hidden in the fridge of these Indian lime pickles. I know, it’s weird. However, my husband loves these cereal bars, so he’s be very happy if I won.

    • Amanda

      When I was pregnant I CRAVED sugar like MAD! But I was super scared of developing diabetes. I decided fruit was the best way to curb those cravings. Lacking self control, my husband bought peaches for me. :) What a sweetie!

      Now, I am no longer preggo, but I still crave sweets. Now, I use those Crystal Light powders in a bottle of water to sooth my sweet tooth. And most of those I got close to free. :)

    • Jacque

      FRESH Berries!Strawberries! Blueberries! Blackberries! Mullberries! Rasberries! DewBerries! Boisonberries! Just pring ands summer berries LOcally Grown and Freshly Picked!!!

    • Carrie

      I love mini bags of OR butter flavored popcorn with white cheddar seasoning!!

    • Elissa Shealy

      Green Olives, Cheddar Cheese, and Cashews. All at the same time. It is salty, fatty goodness. At least they are healthy fats!

    • Melissa

      I LOVE LOVE LOVE CHOCOLATE!!! I have been wanting to try these, but still haven’t. :(

    • Brooke

      Ice Cream!!

    • Cris

      Dark chocolate! Healthy? Just eat it in moderation.

    • Karey

      I crave sweets! I love any kind. I do try to allow a treat but do it in moderation (some days are better than others though!)

    • Diana

      I love key lime pie (specially from Publix bakery). And the best way I have found to substitute the real thing is with the fiber one yogurt.

    • Debbi Reid

      Chocolate – Sugar Free Chocolate Pudding with light cool whip.
      Low fat, takes care of the sweet tooth and best of all CHOCOLATE!

    • janet

      Love chocolate. Instead, I drink coffee with real whipping cream and Splenda. My husband calls it a coffee Sundae! Chex Mix Turtle is GREAT (according to my two sons)…who fight over them.

    • Deborah

      Ice cream!!

    • Maureen Smith

      I would love to try these. Thanks!! Your site is awesome!

    • Maureen Smith

      Oops…almost forgot! I crave ice cream and chocolate.

    • Mae

      I crave it all…crunchy, sweet & salty. To fix that, I slice an apple (or two) and dip it into a mixture of peanut butter, almond butter, raw honey, sprinkled with ground cinnamon, ground cloves, ground nutmeg and ground flaxseed!!! Yummy! The kids love it too!

    • kareen

      I crave chocolate and my way to be a little healthier is to be sure NOT to buy the large or regular size bars…I only buy the little treat sizes and they are just enough to satisfy my craving!!!! MMMM!!!!

    • Jeannie

      Honey ritz with peanut butter and chocolate frosting.

    • val

      I usually get a craving for Chicken Wings with ranch dressing. I never liked them til I was pregnant with my son. I couldn’t get enough. I also crave chocolate and I have never turned it down. Would love to try the bars.

    • Beth W

      cookies! chocolate! I try to keep the cookie/chocolate binging to a minimum by buying small bar packs and getting a chocolate fix from a bowl of coco pebbles :)

    • Linda

      watermelon and boiled peanuts!!!

    • L

      i am a big fan of the kiddos ruling the roost, especially for breakfast! I have learned from telling my 2 year old when we cut coupons together that we only cut what we need. So when we shop, and i choose to wander off of the “regular items” for our household because i cannot resist a deal, I am reminded that he will find a way to eat whatever it is! today my son let me know he “needed” to eat the oscar meyer lunchable for breakfast. At 50cents last week I couldnt resist this deal….and now it has become breakfast! OH, AND lunch! How long will it take him to eat all 10 boxes?? haha I would say the Chex Bars would be a step up from our morning!!!! So I guess that makes our biggest food craving last week’s find!!!!

    • I crave sweets- anything and everything sweet. Crystal light will almost always stave off the craving long enough for me to forget!

    • Paola

      I crave sometimes for something sweet. Good dark chocolate is always a delicious treat. I also love healthy snacks. Those bars look good!

    • Elizabeth M.

      When I was pregnant. the first time, I craved sorbet topped with fresh mango and sometimes with sprite spilled over it. Three kids later, it almost ranks higher than chocolate. Almost.

    • Ann

      Probaly a snack size snickers, but since I have been seriously couponing since your workshop in Batesburg Leesville, I have had alot of fun trying new things for snacks since I am saving so much money. Thank you so much for what you do!

    • Amy in LA

      I crave something salty, like popcorn or chips, and THEN something sweet. I usually finish up my late night snack with a bite of a Milky Way.

    • kelli

      turtle chex mix bars are one of my biggest cravings. I love the things. I’ve always gotta hid them to keep them away from my fiance. :)


      I would love to try them. They sound great.

    • I love everything – but sometimes the only thing that will do is a big plate of Chinese food – followed by chocolate ice cream!

    • Tarrah R.

      because of the free ice cream giveaway on facebook awhile back, my new craving is the Carmel Machiatto starbucks ice cream. How excited am I that they are on BOGO this week at Publix!??!!! Watch me grow… eeek

    • Tamra

      Honestly anything that fits in the desert category is my biggest craving and my 8 year old is always my scapegoat and willing partner in crime. Pistachio Ice cream is in a class by itself for me though and will eat a tub in 2 days if given the chance. I have started to use the italian ice and whole fruit sorbets instead of ice cream and it is working out great so far.

    • Jenn

      Sweet and Salty! Ben & Jerry’s chubby hubby ice cream. yum.

    • Marina

      Ice cream! Fortunately, they have lower calorie substitutes!

    • srtasa

      ice cream

    • OMG – who could resist chex mix? THEN in a bar and as scrumptious as they look? I love the crunch and salt mix of chex and anything with chocolate should be illegal! :) Love it.

    • cheese! That is my first love and chocolate comes in at a very close second. I buy Chocolate Chex Mix and Pop Tarts and hide them from everyone in the house. MINE!

    • Anna

      I would definitely have to say chocolate because my mottoes are:

      • I’d stop eating chocolate but I’m no quitter.
      • Money can’t buy love, but it sure can buy chocolate.
      • Chocolate is cheaper than therapy and you don’t need an appointment
      • I put “Eat chocolate” at the top of my “to do” list every day,
      that way, at least I always get one thing done :)

    • Mrs

      Chocolate. Snickers Candy Bar. Marshmallows. Rocky Road Ice Cream. Apple Pie.

    • gina


    • teresa

      my biggest craving is for something chocolate and cruchy, when i am working 12 hour shifts at the hospital and everything is closed.
      usually satisfy it with a milky way or snickers

    • barbara

      i like many things: chocolate, ice-cream and cakes.however i eat very little and because i’m skinny i do not have to fix my habits.

    • Shannon

      Chocolate is my craving and Chez Mix bars would be a healthier way to help curb the cravings!

    • Valerie

      Donuts!!!I love them! i could eat one now!

    • Autumn

      I love some moose tracks ice cream!!

    • julie


    • Jelly beans, jelly beans, jelly beans. I love them.

    • Mary

      chocolate and icecream (or both together) :) for the chocolate….not very healthy, but better than a candy bar–just eatting a small handful of mini chocolate chips. the fake stuff just doesn’t work. it’s got to be real. for the ice cream? skinny cow bars are pretty good, but pricey. the no added sugar isn’t healthy, but better than full fat. so, i just don’t eat it much. will-power! :)

    • Bread. Fix it by eating fresh vegetables. Thanks.

    • Cara

      I love Publix Lemon yogurt with granola added when I am craving lemon meringue pie.

    • Terrica

      Chocolate is the first thing that comes to mind! Yummo!!

    • Tara

      My biggest food craving would have to be a warm out of the oven brownie with the regular Publix ice cream with hot fudge and walnuts on top…….. MMMMMMMMMM.

    • One of my favorite cravings is eggnog. For one thing, it’s great that it’s seasonal! I tried eggnog flavored soymilk a few Christmases ago, and I actually really liked it, so that’s how I dodge the calories for most of the season. Of course, I do always have to have a little – I limit myself to buying it once, and only a quart. No one else drinks it in my house, and I try and make it last!

      Thanks for doing this giveaway!

    • Shauna

      I am 9 months pregnant and never really went crazy with cravings over too many things. I did have a belpepper kick for about 2 weeks but those are so good for you that I just accepted it and ate 1-2 a day and loved it.

      In general I enjoy ice cream like many others out there. I make it work by getting the kroger brand vanilla “frozen dairy product” The ingredients are exactly the same as whats in regular vanilla ice cream but they are different proportions so they can’t call it ice cream. The best part about it is that it is lower in sugar and fat and it costs $1 a half gallon!!! I eat it with sliced bananas and strawberries and love every bite!

    • Melanie S

      I got hooked on the Fiber 1 mocha bars…bought them on sale at Publix and used a coupon, so now I’m hooked!

    • Kristin

      peanuts, chocolate…every day if possible

    • Veronica

      I usually crave salty over sweet, but I do have a pack of Hershey’s Dark Chocolate Kisses in my desk drawer. Healthy way to fix this chocolate craving while at work…drink chocolate milk.

    • Lindelon

      I love these bars and my nephews love them even more. I make sure to get them when they are on sale so that I have them on hand for when they are over.

    • Maehing O

      I scream you scream…. we all scream for ICE CREAM! Yummmo…. but a sugar free popcicle will do the trick!

    • Kimberli

      Ice cream!!! And I have yet to find a healthy way to fix that craving…but I don’t mind it so much!

    • julie

      I don’t like chocolate! Crazy, huh? But I LOVE peanut butter. Any snack with peanut butter is great with me!!

    • Debbi R

      my craving is for chips. I solve it with pita crisps

    • Charlotte in Charleston, SC

      Well, when our household starts talking snacks, my 5 boys and pastor hubby don’t mind taking a turn. One of our favorites, Yes, several others said it…fruit! But we like to add pine nuts, or baked raw oatmeal (lightly salted) in with is for a sweet/crunchy/salty snack! In fact, Jonathan who is 12 is our baked oatmeal maker! He loves that all by itself! We also like to mix up a broccoli salad with carrots sticks, raisins and Crasins, bacon, pine nuts tiny bit of red onion and cherry tomatoes…then you make the sauce for it with low-cal dressing rather than mayo and sugar! Then, there is the quick and easy stand by that my 2 younger sons (4 and 6) love to make, cause they can, Peanut butter on celery!! Doesn’t last here very long!

      Sarah…I love it…eat chocolate then spit it out! NO CALORIES!!! LOVE IT!

      Anna…may I borrow your motto…eat chocolate everyday that way I’ll get one thing done, brilliant!!!

      Ok, so yea, we love chocolate, too!!! Love to make a trail mix with chocolate. chips!! But…with my growing body…and at 44 it’s not growing down anymore!, we’re opting for the healthy snakes these days!

      Jenny, where do you get the energy to keep up with everything? Maybe you should tell us your favorite snack, so we can be like Jenny!!! Thank you, I SO LOVE this site!!!!! Its keeping my off of Facebook…this is productive Internet!!

    • Alisha

      I love ice cream. The new Breyers with 1/2 the fat is good, so I try to eat that when I am craving some.

    • I would LOVE to try a box of these!!! Literally a whole box. I love chocolate, but especially when I mix sweet and salty together. I have been a member of weight watchers for 11 months and these would probably be a 3 point snack! Perfect for me……c’mon Jenny,vote for me!

    • Donna

      All in moderation….

    • darlene

      My 5 y/o and I are afternoon snackers and what I try to do is make a little snack tray of fresh veggies (carrots, cucumber, grapes, etc) and put that on the counter. This works for us because if it is already out we don’t go looking for something else that is unhealthy.

    • Cookies. Chocolate Chip Cookies are my huge weakness! Would they count as breakfast? Because now that I type this I really want some! LOL

    • Allinole

      Milkshakes are my biggest craving!

    • Suzanne

      Definitely ANYTHING fruity/gummy. Loved stocking up on BC fruit snacks from Bilo for my kids. I probably ate at least a whole box!

    • brooke

      ice cream. Thank goodness for smaller portions!

    • Christy G

      I am pregnant right now so I often crave salty food and sweets. I love fries and chips! I also love candy, like Taffy and Gummy bears. My daughter eats cereal/snack bars all the time and I know she would love these.

    • Maggie

      I crave and love corn chips with guacamole- got to be some kind of healthy aspect to a veggie like avocados?? Ok I am reaching here! Maggie

    • Lori

      I LOVE chocolate so when I diet and I crave it I eat a pickle and the craving goes away. I know it sounds awful but it does work. I read it in a magazine years ago.

    • Jessica

      all food is good to me!

    • Jenny

      Semi-healthy chocolate! Who can beat that? :o)

    • Jenny

      Sorry . . . didn’t catch the request to include the food craving: popcorn and M&Ms! :o) Salty plus sweet! :o)

    • Sheryl

      Dark chocolate!!! Yum!

    • My husband loved the free sample bar we got of these in the mail. I love cookies. I know it is not much better but at least if we make them at home we can add healthy alternatives.

    • Sandra

      Chocolate is my biggest craving!

    • Melody

      My biggest cravings when I was pregnant was big macs from McDonalds (loved the sauce)

    • Teri

      I will literally plan my day around a Chick-fil-a orginal sandwich with extra pickles… I make up for them by training for marathons :)

    • Vicki Hornsby

      When I need a fix for my cravings, I eat salted natural yellow corn chips with my homemade semi-warm (chipoltle and jalapeno) salsa. I dont normally eat alot of hot things but this I can definetly eat. Guess it is not as bad for you as somethings are. If that does not satisfy then I top it off with a bowl of butter pecan ice cream. Can’t fix it. No way.

    • I crave sugar… especially when things are stressful. It seems like my best friends are non-sugared drinks and sunflower seeds to crunch.

    • Emily

      I love love love chocolate ice cream – but I’ve been substituting lately with Fudgesicles – super yummy too!

    • Allison

      Anything from Starbucks…I solve that craving by making smoothies at home…vanilla low fat yogurt, milk, & fruit I froze from this summer. Not quite the same, but I get to use a straw and that totally helps!!

    • Mandy

      Ice cream – I eat it in a cone instead of a gaint bowl – still not great, but better :)

    • gini

      I love a good warm piece of toast with butter and cinamon and sugar, and a sweet and creamy cup of coffee…then salads all day : )

    • gjn

      chocolate! what’s not to love?

    • Gayle

      Healthy chocolate?! Does it get any better than that?!

    • My craving lately has been ice cream. I don’t have a healthy way to feed my craving, but somehow I feel better about it when I am eating free (or cheap) ice cream!


    • Katie

      I crave different things at different times of the month. I can go through a whole bag of chocolates or a box of ice cream sandwhiches by myself. Mostly I don’t buy those things so that I don’t do that. I have called my husband on his way home and asked him to pretty please stop and pick me up one! That way I don’t eat a lot :)

    • Stacey W

      My biggest craving is chocolate! I try to eat a little bit of dark chocolate to cure that craving!

    • Melissa B.



    • Alison

      I know this is strange but I crave vinegar a LOT. Pickles, salads with vinegarette dressings and those really fattening fries you can get at the fair that you put vinegar on. (dont get those often)

    • Jenni

      My biggest craving is chocolate – I indulge myself with 1 frozen chocolate kiss and let it slowly melt.

    • I crave chocolate covered bananas. This all began when Publix had them BOGO. A certain someone clued me in on that, and the rest is history!

    • Morgan

      I always crave carbs! Especially doughnuts :)

    • Sounds good to me!!

    • Lynne

      when i was pregnant I craved pineapple. I would eat at least a can of pineapple a day. I was thankful that I craved something so health!

    • Sarah

      I crave sweet – chocolate & ice cream. Dark chocolate helps curb it & a smoothie made with equal parts frozen fruit & milk curbs the ice cream longings!

    • Lynn

      For the past 4-5 months I’ve been craving Nacho Cheese Doritos! Don’t know why but I can’t get enough of them. Didn’t even really like them before either. (Vitamin Deficency??) I don’t know of a healthy alternative but if someone does..PLEASE let me know. I’m gaining weight for this besides it not being healthy! Thanks!

    • Bill

      I crave Ice Cream, but I have found yoplait whips a good alternative. Thanks for all you do.

    • My biggest food craving is for sugar, chocolate and soda. I know, really bad junk food, right! It’s hard to curb the cravings. I’ve been trying to eat more salad, yogurt and fruits and veggies. Plus, I’m drinking more water. Everything in moderation! I hate giving in sometimes, but if you really want it,it’s better to eat a little bit of it rather than make yourself stop all at once and then end up binging on sugary stuff!

    • Erie

      I LOVE the Turtle Chex Mix bars! It was my first “junk food” purchase on my first ever couponing trip! It was cheap enough with Publix’s B1G1 and two coupons. I crave chocolate almost daily, and one box might last me a couple days, seeing how my 5 yr old also craves these goodies.

    • donna

      I love crunch n munch….I would love to try these bars.

    • Tracey

      I like granola bars and I haven’t tried these – they sound delicious.

    • Diane

      Anything salty – potato chips are a favorite along with popcorn

    • Mine is caramel! Easy way to fix it…open a bag! ;)

    • Kim

      I would have to definitely say Chocolate is my unhealthy weakness! I think it is a lot of womens weakness! Also….potato chips! I have to have potato chips with my sandwiches! Yikes….I need to try to do better by just watching EVERYTHING I eat and drinking more water!!!

    • Sandra Peck

      My craving is icecream so I came up with a healthier, lower calorie, fat option.

      Take Quaker Mini Rice Cakes(I use chocolate) and top one with ff cool whip. Top with another rice cake and freeze for at least 30 mins.

      Icecream sandwich!!!!

    • Melanie

      I love breakfast bars….. SouthBeach Fiber bars are my favorite but, of course i get whatever is on sale & i have a coupon for…. lol

    • Denise Higgins

      I would have to say my unhealthy craving would be Fast Food, I love a good fast food hamburger !! I have been on a diet and have been really good about not eating too many hamburgers lately, but does not keep me from thinking about them and haveing one on occasion !!

    • Heather M-H

      My biggest favorite is Sabra Hummus and pretzels. I could be addicted and may even need an intervention. :oD This is an easy snack since all I have to do is open the lid and bag.

    • Rebecca

      I crave banana malts so I use Weight watchers Vanilla shake mixes with a banana (add ice, part water, part skim milk)to help cut the fat and calories from the ice cream and it turns out to be awesome! This is my quick fix when I need something sweet.

    • Lisa M

      My unhealthy cravings are for things salty and sweet (usually chocolate)! My newest healthy snack choice is Roasted Red Pepper Hummus with whole wheat melba snacks, celery, carrots, and cucumbers. On occassion I still NEED my chocolate fix :)

    • Leigh Anne

      I crave pasta w/ Ragu… yum! I will have a small amount for lunch. so good!!

    • Rachel Charlton

      This is like eating a candybar! Yum!

    • Tammy

      I love ice cream – so when I crave that frozen treat and don’t want full blown out ice cream I eat a frozen Go-Gurt, when they go on sale I stock up and freeze the extra…. a frozen treat that is acctually healthy.

    • Melody Carpenter

      I usually get a craving for anything sweet! I try to substitute coffee with creamer or tea but I usually end up having to cave in and eat some sugary treat.

    • Debra

      I love anything sweet but ideally of course it’s chocalate..or crunchy and if I could get them both that is the ultimate snackisfaction.

      I usually get my fix with cereal bars of some sort I buy whatever is $1 or less w/ coupons. Eat at least one everyday.

    • I crave basically anything sweet! – which can usually be satisfied with some yummy fruit!

    • Chocolate is my big craving. I’ve learned it’s not good to simply deny all cravings (they just get stronger), so I try to keep a stash of chocolate covered almonds in my cupboard. When I get a craving, I grab a few and keep moving. I was able to lose 40lbs in 1 yr all the while satisfying my craving with my stash.

    • Juliett

      I think the only thing I can do is just not buy it! You make it really hard with FREE with coupon deals all over the store…thanks anyway, though!! My husband appreciates the Starbucks Ice Cream so, that gives me an excuse to buy it!!!

    • Lisa

      I love chocolate too. I like the Jello pudding cups with a squirt of fat-free reddi wip.

    • Amy Edwards

      Not sure if you’ve chosen your winners yet, but I’m with all the other chocolate and coffee people. The best – Starbucks Java Chip Frap. or Java Chip ice cream . . . or Ben and Jerry’s Coffee Coffee Buzz Buzz Buzz ice cream :-) So good – yum!!!

    • Kristie

      My biggest craving is anything with chocolate in it. I usually try to find a healthy cereal bar with chocolate chips in it or drink a big glass of Silk soy chocolate milk. That usually satisfies my craving until the next one comes along. ;o)

    • Becky

      my favorite craving, homemade rice crispy treats, throw in a handful of sliced almonds, dried fruit and/or chocolate chips. If I really need a pick me up then I put a teaspoon of expresso or instant coffee in my r.c.t’s!

    • tina

      looks good!

    • Megan

      We love granola bars… they are great to keep in my purse for those time you get stuck in traffic or at a doctors appointment and the kiddos are starving (and when I am starving… myself).

    • Melissa

      My cravings are usually for sweets, so I make sure to keep plenty of tempting fruit around.

    • sloan

      I ususally want chocolate. I like to satisfy this craving with a one or two hershey kisses! Also, sometimes with cereal – Special K chocolate bars. Something like that…

    • Megan

      I LOVE sweets. To curb those cravings I try to buy low fat or less fat varieties of my faves like the 100 calorie snack pack oreos.

    • Shirley

      My biggest craving is strawberry glazed donuts from the donut shop. my pocket book keeps me away from them. It is a very rare very nice treat. I think of them quite a bit. mmmmmmmmmmm

    • Kathy


      tasty alternative- combine one box of devils food cake mix and one can of pure pumpkin (not pie filling). It will be thick!

      Spoon into sprayed muffin tin and bake according to the box.

      They won’t be pretty but they will be delicious!

      We call them Bru-ffins around my house because they taste like the child of a brownie and a muffin.

      Makes 12.

      Careful not to eat the entire batch- the pumpkin has tons of fiber in it!

    • April

      My biggest craving is chex mix. Right now I have the sour cream (not my favorite) and two bags of the regular in my cabinet. That is why the big picture of chex caught my attention as I was scrolling through. Chex Mix for every snack would be okay with me. I haven’t tried their bars yet, but the combination sounds fantastic!

    • Denise

      I love chocolate chip cookies. I always have them on hand. Chips Ahoy chunky are the best.

    • Michele

      Cheesecake for sure! Regular cheese cake with cherry pie filling on top. I haven’t come up with a substitute yet…sadly.

    • MLA

      This is gonna sound weird, but my comfort food and what I always crave is salad, any type of salad. Especially when I’m hungover, in which salad is my ONLY go-to food on those days!! LoL… told you it was weird!

    • Sarah

      I LOVE Chex Mix bars – such a tasty snack and I don’t feel guilty after enjoying one :) This would be a great snack to throw into my daughter’s lunch box, too.

    • Teresa

      I wish this wasn’t the case, but I simply LOVE & CRAVE chocolate. My attempt at making it healthy is to chase my dinner veggies down with some type of chocolate.
      Like your daughter, I love these fantastic bars for breakfast and eat the two varieties offered at my stores everyday. And, since I don’t live with my mommy, my glass of milk and I pretty much do it guilt free each morning. Yummmoo~

    • Heather

      I love chocolate and I also recently tried these bars! They are a good filler for a candy bar!

    • Lisa

      I recently tried them and thought they were good. Always taste good when it is free to.

    • Tammie

      I love snack bars that are sweet and salty.

    • Gail

      Chex Mix bars Rock!! they really help the cravings!!

    • Heather

      I love the Reese’s eggs that only come out at Easter. I do the cups or go to specialty candy shops to get homemade Reese’s cups but they just aren’t the same as the Easter Reese’s Eggs.

    • Stacy

      Chocolate chip cookies straight out of the oven! My husband makes them for us at night after the kids are asleep. We keep trying to break the habit but they are sooo good.

    • big mike

      popcorn. it is the best!!

    • Robin

      My biggest food craving is and always has been Salmon Stew. I make it with skim milk. I can eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

    • Sherri

      I crave birthday cake, M&M’s, candy and just about anything sweet. I chew a lot of sugar-free bubble gum.

    • Kim

      Pepperoni pizza!! Thanks for the giveaway!

    • Suzanne

      A really good sweet treat is nutella and peanut butter sandwiches, makes it taste similar to a no bake chocolate oatmeal cookie w/o all the fuss!

    • Dionne

      My biggest craving is sweets for breakfast…Krisy Kremes, Twinkies, donuts, cake, Oreos. No matter. As long as it’s sweet, it’s for breakfast. (And lucky enough I have good metabolism because I’m 40 and despite these “breakfasts” that I’ve been eating my whole life, I still weigh about 120 lbs!!) : )

    • Ashley


    • Joy Burke

      chocolate or anything sweet

    • Amy

      I love granola and chocolate.

    • Luana

      When I was pregnant I had the biggest cravings for applesauce and it has stuck. It’s sweet and a lot healthier than my chocolate chip cookie cravings!

    • Monica

      My husband just glanced over and said hey those things are awesome. I just had my first one today. I will be getting these tomorrow at Kroger for him!

    • Sandraj

      I have my biggest food cravings at night. We all know thats the worse time to eat, especially choc.My Favorite beside watermelon. So thats what I eat…watermelon. It really fills you up and you don’t fill as quilty.

    • Amanda

      One of my favorite foods is pizza. To make it healthier, I use whole grain bread, spread some spaghetti sauce on, put cheese on top and toast in the toaster oven! It’s fast, easy, healthy, and satisfies like pizza!

    • Arlena

      My biggest food craving is chocolate!! I have found if eat chocolate pudding made with skim milk, it is healthier and I save some calories too!! The best thing is my chocolate craving is gone at least for a little bit!!

    • Colleen

      My biggest food craving is ice cream. My healthy way to deal with it is not the most frugal, but it works for me in maintaining my weight. First of all, I normally eat a very healthy diet and workout 6 days a week. When I do feel the need to splurge on Birthday Cake Ice Cream, I simply take my son out to get ice cream and get a kiddie cup or small cup of it. It is not the most money saving solution (I can buy several cartons of ice cream for what I pay for this small cup), but it helps with portion control and I don’t feel guilty. If I had a half gallon in my freezer I would probably devour the whole thing in one sitting.

    • I crave salty and sweets at different times. Usually before Aunt flo gets into town. When that happens, I do what I do for my kids, DON’T take the bag with me, but instead, put a little bit of m&ms or chips into a bowl and leave the bag behind. Helps me from eating the whole darn thing!

    • Amanda

      I usually crave sweets. However, after I eat something sweet I usually then want something salty to off set the taste. So, I have found that the chocolate covered pretzels in the 100 calorie pack can satisfy both!

    • Mina

      My cravings aren’t normal. The things I tend to crave are steamed broccoli with vinegar and/or a baked potato with vinegar. Once those particular cravings hit, I’m not satisfied until I’ve filled them, even if it’s days later.

      We go through a good three or four boxes of “granola” bars per week during the regular school season. The college students toss a few in their backpacks every day because they are convenient to carry and can be munched between classes. They are the pick-me-up of choice to them through until they can sit down for a meal.

      The ChexMix bars are tasty, larger than what I call the kid sized bars, and we enjoy them. They are satisfying, but I don’t think of them as “nutritious”. I do consider them very good at satisfying both mouth hunger and a calorie source that helps to get through the day on an even keel. I’d much rather have them munch down on them than candy bars and chips during the day!

    • Derek

      I usually crave Baked Lays. I sometimes have to stop myself from buying them because I usually eat the entire bag in one sitting.

      Oh, I almost forgot another craving. Apple fritters – I’ve stopped buying them though because they usually never make it home from the store. Thank god NY doesn’t ban holding an apple fritter in your hand while you’re driving. :-)

    • Dark chocolate for me, too, especially at a certain time of the month. The only way I have found to avoid it is *not to have it in the house* LOL! Seriously, if I eat something with the opposite taste, like a grapefruit, the craving will usually go away. Thank you for the give away.

    • becki

      plain m&m’s are my ultimate favorite. i dont have to crave them, i can eat them anytime!! to keep myself from over doing it i will only buy the small bags sold at the register. i never try to buy the economy size bag with the 8-10 snack size bags inside. it is way too tempting to eat them all in one sitting!!

    • Couponing Saved My Life

      I’m late, but chocolate is my craving & I usually tame it by eating a few frozen chocolate chips….if I’m feeling REALLY fancy it’ll be DARK chocolate chips. :)

    • Janay

      Chocolate, cheese, & chips…….that is my downfall. Sounds like these bars might help some of my cravings!!! Can’t have one without the other….

    • Denise

      I LOVE anything chocolate. I try to eat dark chocolate…they say it is more healthful for you.

    • Amy

      Cravings? The salty-sweet for me; a pc. of dark chocolate and some microwave popcorn… or (gross as it may seem) saltine crackers with butter on them!

    • Julie M. Roeger

      I love to have sweet and salty things together…so I either eat Kettle Corn from Trader Joe’s or Take regular popcorn and eat it with M&Ms. Either way I get the sweet and salty and it isn’t too bad for you…depends on how much of it you consume.

    • wendy

      any sweets cravings can be controlled by cutting back or omitting carbohydrates from diet. If you drink caffeine or sugar it makes you crave more and more..Drink caffeine free diet sodas and decaf teas and coffees.You will feel so much better you can loose weight controll insulin levels and just be a lot happies and healthier

    • My craving is crunchy, sweet. I crave popcorn a lot. I try to eat 94% fat free popcorn to make it a little healthier.
