I am having some hot drink carvings now that is getting cold.
So I went online to look for some kind of zero calorie hot chocolate—or even a zero calorie chocolate tea (does anyone know if this exist)? and got this:

Now... do you really believe it is possible??? To “sniff” chocolate pieces and pretend you had the real thing?
Would you try it?

PS: If you have any idea of a zero calorie chocolate drink, please let me know, I still looking.

Chocolate Tea (http://www.harney.com/Chocolate-Tea/products/244/)

Both good, I've tried them.

I'd be happy to find chocolate gum. I guess it's hard to make so it's not very common.

Do any of y'all remember those Velamints?

They were like minty hot chocolate. Yummy--very few calories, just little square mints that came in a tin like Altoids.

I don't think it would work for me. Part of the joy of eating food is swallowing it! hahaha Sniffing goodness would be more of a torture than a benefit for me!

I loved Velamints... I do the dark chocolate dipped cinnamon altoids now, sometimes. 15 cals for 2.

Stash has a chocolate hazelnut tea that's pretty good.

Hi,
Actually, I have tried that product, LeWhif, and you don't sniff it, you inhale a little bit of chocolate powder. You get a taste of chocolate that's pretty good for powdered chocolate, and for me, it does help head some of those mad cravings off! It's probably close to the effect you'd get if you got a pinch of cocoa mix and popped that in your mouth, only it's portable. :) I'm on my next-to last, so I think I'll be getting some more...mint chocolate, raspberry chocolate, and dark chocolate!

When I want a cold drink I have a chocolate Metromint water. They are really good and zero calories. To me it taste just like a Junior Mint candy. A word of warning though; they are kind of expensive, but occasionally I see them on sale at Safeway.

For a hot drink I have Swiss Miss 25 calorie hot cocoa. Not calorie free; but still works when I'm craving chocolate and nice now that's it's gotten cold outside.

I love them. Bed, Bath, and Beyond had them the last time that I was in there. :D
