Vitalicious Review and Giveaway

Boy, do I have a treat for you!!!

Have you heard of Vitalicious? I hadn't heard of them until a couple of weeks ago, when one of my fitness clients mentioned them to me. I was overjoyed to receive a sample pack of their products, and when I tried them, I knew I had to share them with you!

Vitalicious is the market leader of innovative "vital and delicious" baked goods that promote a healthy lifestyle, without sacrificing taste. First to market with 100-calorie servings, Vitalicious is leading the way to a holistic approach to maximize satisfaction with minimum calories, with products that are low fat and high in fiber and nutrients. Founded in 1999, Vitalicious creates and sells a variety of unique, healthy, value-added baked goods including: VitaMuffins, VitaTops, VitaBrownies, VitaCakes, and VitaMuffin Mixes.

Here is a breakdown of what is in each Vitalicious products -

  • 100 Calories


  • 4-10 grams of fiber


  • 3-5 grams of protein


  • 0-2.5 grams of fat


  • low sodium


  • NO trans fat


  • no cholesterol


  • 15 vitamins and minerals

I was really impressed by their ingredients and the healthiness of these products. As you know, I am super picky about what my family eats, and I was quite pleased with Vitalicious' ingredients. I really appreciate that they use no artificial preservatives and additives.The one thing I was very sad about was the lack of organic ingredients. I would have died and gone to heaven if all of their ingredients had been organic. But, the only ingredient that is organic is the sugar. So, that is the only thing that bummed me out.

Let's talk about taste now. You may think that products this healthy would have little taste or a bad aftertaste. Vitalicious' products are the exact opposite of what you may expect. They are really tasty and come in a variety of flavors. Don't these flavors make your mouth water...Triple Chocolate Chunk, Fudgy Peanut Butter Chip, Apple Crumb, Apple Berry, CranBran, and Banana Nut? They are so tasty!!

Another huge benefit of Vitalicious is that they are individually wrapped. Products that are individually wrapped are often easier to have portion control with, but I sometimes fish my way out of that by grabbing several packages. With these, you have to keep them in the freezer if you aren't eating them in the first five days. So, if I want to eat them, I have to either thaw them out or stick them in the toaster. That makes me less likely to want more than one at a time. That really really helps me out with not snacking as much! Yay!

I recommend Vitalicious to those of you who love sweets and snacks, but are looking for healthy alternatives and portion control. You can order them online or find them at stores near you!


I really wanted to share these great products with you, so I am delighted that Vitalicious is generously giving away a Super Sampler pack to one lucky reader!
