Default VitaTops even healthier than I thought!

I am having a friend go over my foods to see where I can make changes. I looked up the nutritional info on the site for Vitatops to show him, and happened to have the wrapper still from my breaktime Vitatops.

I chatted with a CS rep to make sure - but it turns out they changed the recipes back in December, but the boxes and wrappers were all pre-printed with the old info so they had to use them still. My wrapper says that the Deep chocolate Vitatop has 6 grams of fiber and 3 grams of protein. the site says it has 9 grams of fiber and 4 grams of protein. And the site is accurate. Yay!

I love VitaTops!!! So glad to hear they're even more nutritious than labeled. Not often you hear good news like that!

I just ordered a mixed flavor box and I like everything (except the corn muffin--too sweet for my taste) I've had so far.

I jsut recieved my order of the new Apple Crumb flavor yesterday and noticed the sodium is much lower.. Only 105mg.. Other flavors I've had were 2X that much!

Are Vitatops available in retail stores? I read about them on Hungry Girl, but it seems the only way to get them is by ordering online. They are a little pricey, so I'd love to try one (or one box) first before ordering dozens and finding out they're not as tasty as I thought!

For me they are. You might have to just browse the grocery stores. But make sure you note: they're in the frozen section. Usually near the breakfast stuff.

I've seen these in the grocery store and in the Weight Watcher's magazine (although I'm not following WW).

What's the best flavour? And how to you bake them?

@Stella4: You can sometimes find the mixes which I'm sure would have directions, but I've never had those. Just the Vitatops or whole muffins - those are already baked, but they come frozen bc the company doesn't use preservatives. I just pull one out of the freezer at 8am and it's thawed by 10am for my break. Or pop in in the microwave on defrost for half a minute.

I've only tried the Deep Chocolate and the Corn. The Deep Chocolate is good - I've read reviews that say it's one of the best. The cake by itself isn't over the moon but so long as you get a chocolate chip in there it's just fine

The corn is so-so. No grit like real cornbread so the flavor seems a bit..off. I suppose it would be better warmed up with a smidge of country crock or something.

I once read a (very very thorough) review over at Amazon from someone who bought the big variety pack and they detailed all the muffins. Apparently a number of them taste more "diet" than others.

In large grocery stores they can often be found in the organic/natural food section.

I can get them at my Kroger grocery store in the natural food frozen area.
