Ode to a VitaMuffin
One of the lovelier, simpler things in life has to be chocolate. But chocolate can also be a sweet saboteur of diets and a healthy lifestyle. And let's face it, it's impossible to eat chocolate in moderation, considering moderation usually amounts to "a Hershey kiss". Well, I've got a wonderful and healthy alternative for those of us who want to have our chocolate cake-like-treats and eat it too!
VitaMuffins. Specifically, Deep Chocolate VitaTops.
The products are very low in fat, 100 calories, high in fiber with a decent amount of protein, and 50% of many of your daily vitamin requirements. And, they don't have the dreaded chocolate substitute after taste. Don't get me wrong-it's not the same as eating a slice of Mom's homemade (or out of a box) chocolate cake, but it's pretty darn close, and for what they are, they are really delicious!
The Vitalicious brand boasts a number of VitaMuffins, VitaTops, and VitaBrownies. Some of the Muffin and Top flavors include Blueberry, Corn Muffin, Cranberry, Chocolate w/Peanut Butter Chips, Cranberry and Bran, not to mention a slew of chocolate variants!
