Vitalicious Review!

My Dear Friends,

Last week a box of Vitalicious Muffins was delivered to my door.  I am in the process of attempting to lose weight and yet not completely give myself over to bland, tasteless food.  I've done that in the past and it has resulted in binging on whatever sweets I can find.

According to their website:

"The VitaMuffin contains less sugar and more vitamins and minerals than an apple!"

If you're like me, you would love to get more fiber and vitamins in your diet but find yourself eating empty calories because you crave something that doesn’t look or taste like a vegetable or fruit and that satisfies your sweet tooth. 

I received the SuperSampler Pack:

Assortment of 100 calorie natural muffin tops and brownies:

4 Low Fat Deep & Velvety VitaBrownies
2 Low Fat Chocolate Mint VitaTops
2 Low Fat Banana Nut VitaTops
2 Low Fat Triple Chocolate Chunk VitaTops
2 Low Fat Deep Chocolate VitaTops
2 Low Fat Fudgy Peanut Butter Chip VitaTops
2 Low Fat Golden Corn VitaTops
2 Low Fat CranBran VitaTops
2 Low Fat AppleBerry VitaTops
2 Low Fat RaisinBran VitaTops
2 Low Fat BlueBran VitaTops

The first thing that struck me as wonderful was that I have a variety to try, instead of being stuck with just one flavor I might or might not like.  The ask you to please put the entire box in the freezer upon arrival because they are baked fresh and made with no preservatives.

Real fruit pieces, nuts, or chocolate chips decorate the tops of these "muffin tops", and the texture is moist and sweet.  They come individually wrapped so they are easy to take with you on-the-go.  Since they are frozen, you can either nibble straight out of the freezer, or defrost for about an hour or pop it in the microwave or toaster for 10-20 seconds...it's just like eating a fresh-out-of-the-oven muffin!

With 100% of most vitamins and either no or an miniscule amount of fat (but never any trans fatty acids), these desserts that are actually better for you than what you would often eat. The 2 oz. muffins are the perfect size for snack and are only 80-100 calories, 4-7 grams of fiber, 4 grams of protein & are cholesterol free!

Another impressive feature is the fact that the products are guaranteed to remain fresh & delicious for about 9 months in the freezer.  

Quality & Taste so far have been stellar.  I enjoy the fact that I have found something tasty and good for me...which seems to be the eternal quest for most dieters, or people looking to eat healthier.

You can also use the Walk-It-Off feature on their website to see just how long it will take you to work off your muffin (only 13-15 minutes per 2 oz. muffin!) 

Final Thought:

They are all natural & contain no preservatives.  They are high in both vitamins and fiber, and contain little to no fat.  These sweets that will change your mind about “health foods”.  They do really well to satisfy hunger.  They offer quite a variety of flavors, so you should be able to find one or more you really enjoy!  They average for about $1.50 each, is not really bad considering how great they are for you!
