VitaTops Review and Giveaway!!

Giveaway Closed- Congrats to Simone Slater!

There were two breakfasts that I always had at least a few times a week growing up-

1.) White rice with honey and creamer

2.) Muffins with honey and milk

I still love both of these childhood breakfasts often, but majority of the time I just sub in healthier alternatives! In example, white rice becomes brown rice or quinoa, creamer is replaced with milk or almondmilk, and sugary muffins are swapped out for homemade ones or healthier brands like for instance VitaLicious.

So when VitaLicious recently asked if I wanted to review their new Carrot Cake VitaTops, I didn’t hesitate to say yes:) What is Vitalicious? Let’s start with the benefits:

High fiber and protein? 15 vitamins? Pretty impressive for a muffin top, right? (That sounded weird). Anyways, I  nearly didn’t get to try them, since Zazu was out in the yard when the box came in! I found him attempting to chew it up and rescued it just in time:)

The first one I plain and loved it! They were super soft and tasted just like carrot cake complete with raisins and a cinnamon-y flavor.

They were also really good-sized for 100 calories!

For school last week, I packed them frozen into lunches and let them thaw. They are actually pretty filling with their 9 grams of fiber, so I ended up having this one after school- so good!

I also loved them like this.

1.) Toast

2.) Spread with good quality cream cheese

And I couldn’t end this review without crumbling them over yogurt! What don’t I put into yogurt? 😉

  34. These sound awesome! I don’t usually eat muffins because well, we all know what kind of fat/sugar bomb they can be so just like you I usually make healthier ones at home. But these sound pretty great, and the muffin top is always the best part of the muffin anyways – good thinkin’ VitaTops! Glad you saved the box before Zazu tore it to shreds!

    Wow, thank you and Vitalicious for such a generous giveaway! I would love to win this prize because I’ve been trying to encourage my boyfriend to eat healthier and I know these VitaTops would tempt him into eating something that was both incredibly nutritious and amazingly delicious!

  41. Those aren’t gluten free are they?? I think I saw a gluten free version of them at some point.

  42. My family and I eat these all the time! They’re double chocolate is the best, but we’ve also tried pomegranate chocolate 🙂

  56. Vitalicious is one of my favorite brands!!! Over the past couple of years, I have created many recipes with their muffins. My mom and I are huge Vitalicious fans and have one of their muffins every day. I would like to win this giveaway because I have not tried their new Carrot Cake VitaTops yet!

  57. I’ve been wanting to try Vitatops products for so long! Their flavors sound delicious and they have such great nutritional stats. Now they have the VitaPizzas, which also sound amazing. Thanks for the awesome giveaway 🙂

  58. I already like you on facebook 🙂

  59. I like Vitalicious on facebook, too!

  60. While these Vita Tops are definitely healthier than anything you might find at Starbucks… They’re not exactly angelic health foods… But hey, moderation is key 😉

    • Couldn’t agree more GiGi- they aren’t the healthiest thing out there but definitely are much better than a muffin loaded with artificial flavor, etc. It’s all in how you compare it I suppose:) Thanks for visiting!

  61. Liked vitalicious on facebook.

  62. Liked you on facebook 🙂

  63. following your blog!

  64. I would love these because before moving to Kuwait, they were always on our weekly grocery list…. so if I were to win (fingers crossed), you could use my parents address in the states :).

  66. Wow those look SO good. It’s frustrating because normal muffins/scones/bagels look so appealing; however, it isn’t worth the guilt I feel after eating them. (Some may think that is a bit extreme but I’d rather have a bowl of ice cream than a 400 calorie muffin for breakfast!) Anyways, I really want to try these VitaTops! Look so good 🙂

  67. Hope

    I’d love to try these – I adore anything carrot-cake flavored!
    Thanks 🙂

  68. I haven’t had a chance to try the carrot cake kind yet and they sound sooo good. I’ve never thought to crumble a vitatop over yogurt, smart!

  69. It’d be great to win because I used to have these all the time but they discontinued them in my store 😦

  75. I want to win this giveaway because I’ve never even tried a vitatop! I’ve got to get myself into the freezer aisle of my health food store. These look perfect for a snack on the go. Thanks for the giveaway–love the blog!

  76. I want to win the giveaway because I’ve never even tried a vitatop before! I need to change that 🙂
    thanks for the great giveaway–love the blog!

  77. I want to win because I LOVE VitaTops. I seriously have probably eaten 3 in one day before. I’m a huge chocolate fan, so their Deep Chocolate Top always does the trick for my cravings.

  78. Alexandra

    I love VitaTops!! I wish they werent so darn expensive because Id buy them weekly!! Great blog 🙂

    I want to win the giveaway because I eat Vitatops almost every day, but my local stores don’t carry the carrot cake flavor! I just recently discovered your blog, and I love it! I also like you on Facebook, and I liked Vitalicious as well. I’m hoping to try the Vitapizza soon! They’re just now shipping nationwide, but my local stores aren’t carrying it yet 😦 You should try them, and do a review of the Vitapizzas!

    I would like to win because I live a little far off and don’t have many choices for pre-packaged healthy deserts carried by supermarkets such as Wholefoods. I would have to order them but would like to taste them before spending the money 🙂 I also really love carrot cake!!
    I live in Canada, but have a country house in the US–does that count as US resident here?:)
    Thank you!

  88. Been following your blog and FB – I seriously find your recipes amazing – and since I’m a newbie blogger I’d love to share more of them with my friends. Would love to test these bad boys out too 🙂 This Mama needs easy easy easy breakfasts 🙂 http://www.colorushealthy.com
