Pennys muffins, muffin tops, cookies??
 
anyone try these?
Which are your favorite?
I'm thinking of trying.
I've bought plenty of the vitatops and I really like those (the chocolate brownie with nuts, the triple chocolate chunk-- how do they compare?
This is their website:

I used to order Penny's muffins regularly, back when they offered 100-110 calorie muffins. I loved them. They were a good size (larger than the Vitalicious muffins) and tasted great. I couldn't tell that they were low fat, they tasted just like regular muffins to me. They were lighter in texture than your average muffin, but that didn't bother me. I haven't ordered their muffins since they've changed their recipe; now all their muffins are upwards of 150 calories and I'm just not sure I want to devote that many calories to a muffin, when I know I can buy or make muffins that are around 100 calories per muffin. But in terms of taste and quality, I was very happy with their muffins.

I've never tried the Vitalicious muffins, so I can't compare them (I just know Penny's muffins are larger by comparing the serving size for each).

well, according to my Weight Watchers leader, she (my leader) complained to her about the changes, and supposedly they have changed them back to the way they were before....
I looked online and they said they were 1 point each; I forgot to check the calories though.

The muffin tops are 1 pt and around 100 calories, but they used to offer whole muffins (a muffin top is really just half a muffin) that were only 100 calories and 1 pt. Their whole muffins now are all 2 pts and 150 to 160 calories.

I'm not into the muffin top thing; if I'm going to eat a muffin, I want to eat a whole muffin. I emailed them about it and they said that peopled like the new recipe better. But I liked the old recipe fine and definitely liked 100 calories vs. 150 calories for a whole muffin a lot better.

The flavors all sound great and I might try them at some point. Now that I'm in maintenance, I don't need to be quite so stingy with my calories, but it's a hard habit to get out of.

it's hard for me to say personally... i don't really care for anything too sweet. I like for a nice flavor, but no too much of something, ya know?

I find making ff, sugar free muffins for my family to be easier, healthier, and cheaper.
