When Debbi from Debbi Does Dinner Healthy & Low Calorie hosted a VitaTops giveaway a couple of months ago, I just knew I had to enter! I couldn't believe it when she contacted me to let me know that I was the winner! It was perfect timing too, since I just recently started dieting!
I was so excited and anxiously awaited my package from Vitalicious. When it arrived, I couldn't wait to rip open that box so I could try one!
On one hand, I was skeptical. Most 100 calorie snacks, while very tasty they are also very tiny. So, looking at this very normal-sized snack, claiming to be just 100 calories, had me wondering what sort of tasteless fillers were added to make it a normal size. Also, being the junk food junkie that I am, I wasn't sure about the all-natural /no preservatives part. Sure, I do like some healthy stuff, but old habits sure are tough to break!
On the other hand, I've never been disappointed in anything suggested by Hungry Girl. I trust her judgement!
The first Vitatops I tried was Deep Chocolate. Mmmmm! I couldn't believe it! My dieting prayers were answered! Seriously! Not only was it tasty and filling, it also satisfied my sweet tooth! The Deep Chocolate is definitely one of my favorites...only to be topped by the Triple Chocolate Chunk. TRIPLE CHOCOLATE, people! Need I say more?
Vitatops are perfect for dessert or an on-the-go snack, perfect for breakfast or added to the kids' lunch boxes. If chocolately muffins aren't your "thing" for breakfast, Vitalicious also offers other flavors such as: Raisin Bran, Banana Nut, Apple Crumb, or Blue Bran (another favorite).
The Super Sampler Pack arrived a couple of days before my nieces were here for a visit. Their ages range from 10 through 16. The 10 year old being the picky one. I served the Vitatops as dessert after lunch, allowing the girls to choose whatever flavor they wanted. They all chose one of the chocolate varieties and all really enjoyed them...even the picky one!
Shortly after receiving my prize package of VitaTops, I contacted Vitalicious about hosting a giveaway of my own! I am so happy to announce that one lucky Under the Big Oak Tree reader (US only) will receive a FREE Super Sampler Pack of Vitalicious Vitatops ($35.99 value)!
