Default Your ultimate craving busters?

Hi everyone! I'm just wondering what you use for low-cal subsitutes for:

Sweet cravings?
Salty cravings?
Crunch cravings?

What is your top food for beating each of these cravings?

For me:

Sweet cravings: Yogurt, particularly vanilla yogurt (35 cals a container)
Salty cravings: A bland fruit like pears dipped in about 1/2 - 1 tbs of peanut butter (the regular kind, not low salt!)
Crunchy cravings: Either baby carrots with hummus or a 100 cal package of popcorn

This is what I use;

Sweet: Small almount of dark chocolate
Salty: Light popcorn, a big handful
Crunchy: Again, light popcorn. Satifys 2 cravings in 1!

What yogurt do you eat that's only 35 calories per container?!?! The lowest I can find is 80.

Thank you!!!! I'm going to try it. I eat a yogurt every day, and it would be great if I could eat one that was only 35 cals, instead of 80-100.

Salty--I don't watch sodium. It doesn't seem to affect me that much.
Crunchy: baby carrots
sweet: no sugar added canned mandarin oranges, half-thawed frozen strawberries with splenda on them. You can eat 300 grams (which is like a double handful) of strawberries for 100 calories. And the frozen ones aren't too expensive.

Oh that is sad! I'm sure there must be other yogurts out there that are less than 80 cals?! I'm glad that I found these, I just use them when I want chocolate or something sweet

Okay I looked it up... Yoplait Source only has 40 cals too. Not sure if that's just a Canadian yogurt too?
