Vitalicious VitaTops Review & Giveaway CLOSED

CLOSED
This is probably the yummiest review I've had the pleasure of doing. :-) I've been having a lot of trouble keeping my weight under control during this pregnancy, but when I crave something sweet I can just pop a VitaTop or VitaBrownie into the microwave and have a delicious, healthy, low-cal snack in 30 seconds. Here is a picture of the amazing sampler pack that I received:
In here were ten different types of VitaTops and a package of four VitaBrownies. Here are the types of VitaTops in the sampler:
Chocolate Mint VitaTops
Banana Nut VitaTops
Triple Chocolate Chunk VitaTops
Deep Chocolate VitaTops
Fudgy Peanut Butter Chip VitaTops
Golden Corn VitaTops
CranBran VitaTops
Apple Crumb VitaTops
RaisinBran VitaTops
BlueBran VitaTops

My Take
My favorite VitaTops were the Deep Chocolate VitaTops and the Fudgy Peanut Butter Chip VitaTops. I really do love my chocolate. :-) And I was surprised at how much I liked the Chocolate Mint VitaTops, because I generally don't like mint, but these were fantastic. I have been craving sweets during this pregnancy, and honestly it's these VitaTops, VitaBrownies and Skinny Cow ice creams that keep me going without the guilt. The best part is, they're kosher! (Well of course they are or I wouldn't be eating them...) If you're curious, they are supervised by KVH and most of their VitaTops are dairy. You are supposed to keep Vitalicious products frozen, and you can either heat them in the microwave or let them thaw, but I HIGHLY recommend microwaving them. They come out all warm and gooey. :-)

Pros:
  • All Vitalicious products are all natural with no artificial additives or preservatives.
  • All of their products are also kosher certified.
  • All Vitalicious products (except the 4oz VitaMuffins) are 100 calories and many have only 1.5g fat.
  • Their products are made with whole wheat flour and egg whites.
  • Vitalicious products have the right balance of nutrients, protein and B vitamins helps keep your energy levels high throughout the day.
  • All Vitalicious products contain high fiber & wholesome natural ingredients to satisfy your hunger and conquer your cravings.
  • Vitalicious products also contain 15 important vitamins & minerals that your body needs, such as calcium, vitamin D, iron, folic acid & more.
  • Each portion is wholesome and healthy. Vitalicious products are 100 calories per 2 oz. serving size, so you no longer need to settle for tiny portions.
  • There are 15 delicious flavors to choose from as well as 2 sugar-free varieties!
Cons:
  • They are not allergen free (nuts, dairy, etc.), so if you have food allergies you need to be careful. My husband is allergic to nuts and also can't have honey, so we have to make sure we read food labels like crazy.
  • The bran flavors are not as flavorful as the chocolate ones, but maybe that's because I'm particularly partial to chocolate...
  • Because there are no preservatives, you need to clear out space in your freezer for these treats. This can be difficult for some (hehe us!) who have smaller freezers, but I'm sure you'll find the space.
  • They are expensive, but so are protein bars.
Price:
  • 12 VitaTops are $14.45 - $18.50 + shipping ($$$$)
  • 16 VitaBrownies are $22.65 - $24.99 + shipping ($$$$)
  • 16 VitaMuffins are $15.45 - $23.15 + shipping ($$$$)
Overall: I give Vitalicious products an 8/10.
