There is a health food that's been around for many years that mimics chocolate.
it's carob and its made form a root.
it has the appearance and tastes close to chocolate.
look for it in a health food shop
As Stacie L said, carob is definitely one option.
From what I understand, chocolate gives us the perception of feeling good because it boosts serotonin. I imagine that if one were to reach for something that elicits a similar effect then that could also be an option.
What I also know is that starchy carbohydrates (bread etc.) tend to do similar things although I'd be careful to avoid excessive eating. In a related vein, reaching for some fruit (natural and healthy) could help a craving for something sweet.
This is a good question; thanks for posting it.
