VitaTops Review


Okay, what else can I say? Um...double yum.

No really, I have wanted to try VitaTops for a long time now. I have seen them on other blogs, in magazines and in the store (Kroger) and they look so yummy. I contacted the company and they were amazing about letting me write a review for them. I was literally watching for the box to get here. As soon as it did, I ripped it open (quietly, it was nap time...) and immediately tried the Raisin Bran flavor. And the obsession began.

The fact that these seemingly small muffin tops are only 100 calories, contain no preservatives (have to freeze them...), contain fiber, vitamins and minerals...woah...too much!

While most of today’s 100-calorie foods are loaded with sugar, artificial ingredients and preservatives, Vitalicious baked goods still remain as eponymously “vital” and “delicious” as they were at the outset of the now thriving category.

Over the years, Vitalicious’ individually-wrapped VitaMuffin™, VitaTops™, VitaBrownies™, VitaCakes™ and VitaMuffin Mix™ have exploded in popularity among dieters and non-dieters alike because they are satisfying and provide excellent daily nutrition. In fact, clinical studies have found foods high in fiber and protein help you feel full longer and eat less.

Here is the VitaBreakdown of what you get in each individually-wrapped serving:
    * 100 calories                                   
    * No artificial ingredients
    * No preservatives
    * Whole grains
    * 5g - 6g of fiber
    * 0g - 1.5g of fat
    * 3g - 4g protein
    * 15 vitamins and minerals

So, what did my family think about all the flavors? I'll spare you the details on every flavor. Our favorites were the Chocolate Mint, Raisin Bran, Blue Bran, the Brownies (oh my...) and the Deep Chocolate. I really liked the Corn Bread, but my husband did not. The kiddo liked it too. Actually, I don't think there was a flavor I didn't like.

I told the hubs that I was going to have to make room in the grocery budget for them. The days I ate one for breakfast (just pop in the microwave for about 30 seconds) I stayed fuller longer. I did find that if I ate too many...well that's more fiber than my body was used to...

All in gotta try these! Go here to order. Really. Do it now.

I was provided with a sampler box from Vitalicious for review purposes. No other monetary compensation has been provided. The opinions are my own. I was not required to write a positive review. I genuinely love this product! Thank you to the company for considering my blog worthy of a review of their product.
