Vitalicious Review

by Nicci on 10/15/2009

October is definitely a very busy month for me.  I’ve been cross-training at work which means I have a bigger work load, until my coworker comes back from Maternity Leave. 

I’ve never been big on 100 cal snacks because I didn’t feel they kept me satisfied. In fact I could eat about 2 packs and still be hungry. That was the case until I’d heard of Vita tops & wondered what they were and how they tasted!  How could I get my hands on this product that every blogger seems to love?

Well, the nice people at Vitalicous sent me free samples to test taste and review.  Vitalicious has vitatops, muffins, mixes, cakes, brownies and coffee.  All products are 100 cals, 4-7g of Fiber, 4g of Protein, low fat, trans-fat free, no cholesterol and contain up to 15 vitamins & minerals.

My Thoughts

  • I like that Vitalicious  products can stay fresh for 5+ shelf days or store in your freezer up to 9 months.  I’ve been keeping mine in the freezer, also my way of not eating them up in a week.
  • Appleberry VitaTop was one of my favorite muffins. Although I didn’t taste the apple chunks, I did taste the blue berries and cranberries.

  • I loved the Chocolate VitaBrownie for all the walnuts it contained :)  Chris tried the brownie and didn’t care for the taste of it.  He said it tasted like a ”diet brownie”, too bland and too many walnuts for him.

  •  The Blueberry Vitatop was also delicious and it paired well with my blueberry yourt for breakfast!

Overall

 I like Vitalicious products and still have many tops and muffins to sample.  I recevied these samples for free and I would purchase them online. I like that they are not expensive and can be purchased by the dozen for $14-16.  So, basically your paying under $1.50 for each, which is pretty cheap in my book!

I’m hoping the ”Vitalicious Fairy” will send me their cakes and mixes to sample! :-)

Have you tried Vitalicious products, what’s your favorite top, muffin or cake?

(Vitalicious products are also available in stores like Whole Foods, Publix,  and Krogers. Please check their website for more stores.)

My favorite vitatops are the cornbread and the multibran. I haven’t tried the banana nut ones but they look yum! The chocolate ones are good but I am just not a big chocolate girl! I want them to create a lemon poppyseed version or a carrotcake flavor! YUM! :)

Great review! I’m glad to see I’m not the only super busy person lately. : )

I flippin love vitalicious. I remember trying their products a few years back when I was in college and worked at a coffee shop that sold their product. Though, I haven’t tried the brownie, i love the chocolate muffin, the blue bran, etc, etc yum!

I like the chocolate ones. Did you contact them for a sample or did they just come across your blog and offer you one? (Because I want a sample too!)

I have never tried these products … I don’t know if they sell them in Canada or not …

Yes, Vitatops are the BEST! I love them schmeared with almond butter…yum. (they’re obviously not 100 cals any more, but it’s worth it!)

Life is good! How are you? I love Vitamuffins and tops.

Well, the muffin looks like its growing warts, so I’d have to take the walnuts off.

Kristen @ Simply Savor October 15, 2009 at 1:41 pm

I have never tried Vitalicious products, but seen them before on other Healthy Blogs. They do look good! Can you only get them online???

I’ve been hearing about these forever now! But I’ve never actually seen them. Do you have to order them online??

I agree 100 calorie packs generally do nothing for me except make me crave more!!

Stephanie October 15, 2009 at 10:05 am

I’ve never tried these, but only heard good things! Lucky lady to get free ones to sample, yummmm :)
