A muesli bar or flapjack is my preferred alternative to chocolate. Probably doesn't contain much less sugar or fewer calories, but more filling than chocolate, in my experience.

How about dried fruit - it has a competely different textrure to fresh fruit and I find it more filling
Grain bars (muesli or granola)
Crisps
Protein bars if you can find them

Or will power?

When I was weight training, I snacked on red skin nuts. No sugar, the correct types of fat (And very little at that), high protein and they are filling.

I find that Nairn's oatcakes are a good alternative to the sweet stuff (especially the cheese ones) - mind you, it does depend on what you slather on 'em Grin But they're still good - and best of all being oats they're wheat-free, no added sugar (although does contain natural sugars), no GM, high fibre, no nasty artificial colours, flavours or preservatives (according to the packet in front of me) Grin

The other thing I do is to buy dark chocolate ... I find that one or two (or three ... or four ...) squares of that satisfies my cravings for chocolate. And if I'm honest, one of the nicest ones I've found is Morrison's own brand dark chocolate ... 30p per bar, and 6 squares of that is approximately 90 calories ... happy all round!! Craving satisfied, money saved - job done Smile
