I think awhile ago I mentioned that I subscribe to something called the Nutrition Action Newsletter. It comes in the mail and is an ad-free "newsletter". It is actually like a 5-7 page glossy magazine and it is all about nutrition.

One of the things I have been reading about, not only in Nutrition Action, but in my other health mags are VitaTops, or VitaMuffins. Well I found them at Publix! And I bought a couple of boxes. Here is the picture of one flavor.

A little information from their website:

Taste – winner of the "Award of Excellence" from the American Tasting Institute
Nutrients – contains 15 vitamins, minerals, soy and oat bran
Control – only 100 calories per 2-oz serving
Health – high in fiber (5-6g per serving)... and they are kosher
Satisfaction – leaves you feeling full because fiber-rich foods take longer to digest
Peace of mind – all natural muffin tops with no artificial additives or preservatives

You can toast them, heat them in the microwave, or just eat them at room temperature. I do have to tell you that just plain, they are a little dry. I like mine with a little butter on it (bad Amy). Southern Belle just posted about them as well, and she likes hers with cream cheese.

Okay...these may...MAY be my last post for the day. But I can't guarantee anything.


  1. I agree, the deep chocolate are the best and they are yummy and good for you!

  2. I also like the deep chocolate with peanut butter and sliced banana, sooo yummy!!

  3. um YUM... I have never seen those but now am wishing I knew what "Publix" was and that one was around here so I could buy these!

  4. How do I get a job at the American Tasting Institute?

  5. Hungry Girl has a whole chapter in her 200 under 200 using VitaTops and VitaMuffins in her recipes.
    I've heard the same thing about them being dry, but have heard if you freeze them, that they are good straight from the freezer.
    If I find them around here, I may just give them a try. Are they worth the price?

  6. oh Amy.. Please never stop blogging. I love you and all your blogs. Makes my day :D

  7. No fair - yet another great food from the US. I should start a store with imported US food. Hmmm now theres an idea!!

  8. Oh no fair .. yet another great US food that we don't get. Thats it.. I'm opening an US food store with all the imports that look yum!!

  9. Man those look sooooo good. I am on liquids so I wanted to see the food porn lol I may have to see if they have any of those up here.

  10. i love the with a little bit of fat free ice cream to make them not so dry lol
    they are my sinful dessert lol

  11. They are good. A little too good, if you know what I mean. Thankfully, I'm a cheapskate, and they are pricey, so it keeps me from indulging too often. has a decent price on them, if you want 24 of them:

  12. Amy W - where were you located in Kansas? I'm between Lincoln and Omaha, but I grew up just a few miles north of the Kansas border.
