Try it Tuesday


Ok, so these are not something that I've tried recently. They are something I eat EVERYDAY! I can't praise Vitatops enough! Being on Weight Watchers, I have found plenty of food to fill me up yet be low in fat and calories. But my all time favorite are Vitatops!

These babies are 2 ounces of pure addiction for me. They have 6 grams of fiber, 100 calories and tons of vitamins. They come in many flavors, but my favorite is the deep chocolate. They have chocolate chips..mmmmm. Of course there is a certain WAY to prepare these babies. If you don't do as I say, I promise that you will be disappointed in your tops. They taste awful if you don't follow my instructions! I know, I know...sounds weird right? But honestly, you MUST listen to me!

#1....keep your tops frozen at all times. They have no preservatives! They will quickly dry out if not kept frozen.
#2....when you want to eat one, you MUST microwave that little critter! I heat it for about 35 seconds. It will be nice and warm (comfort food!)and the chips will be melty. You may also toast the top using a toaster oven or the plain old toaster. Using a slice toaster might make a bit of a mess though since the chocolate chips like to stick, but I do it anyway. My trick is to wet the top of your Vitatop and then sprinkle a bit of Splenda on top. When it's toasted, it's has a nice sweet crust. Mmmmm.
#3.....There is no number #3 really...but I wanted to repeat that you MUST HEAT YOUR TOP! It just doesn't taste right if you don't!

Ok, now that I've shared my secret food....don't buy them all up at Meijer or I will hunt you down and knock your VitaTOP off! Just kidding. I do love these things though and before a few months ago I had to order them online Vitalicious.

But now I can get them at my local Meijer grocery store for $3.99 in the freezer section near the waffles. They come in a box of 4. Kind of expensive, but soooo worth it to me. Not everyone really likes these, but if you just heat them, they have a whole new taste.

Meijer only offers the deep chocolate and the blue bran flavors. But you can visit the site and they have other flavors such as corn, chocolate banana, chocolate peanut butter etc. They also come in 2 oz and 4 oz muffins, but I like the tops better. The muffins have a different consistency which I'm not fond of. They also make vitabrownies (love em!), vitacakes (never tried) and also they all come in mix form. I've tried the brownie vitamix and they were yummo! Again, have to heat the brownies for the best flavor.

My favorite way to eat a Vitatop is to heat it then place 1/2 cup of Edy's Loaded chocolate peanut butter ice cream on top!. MMMM.

Oh, very important information....if you are counting points for Weight Watchers, a Vitatop (they only come in 2 oz) is only ONE point! Yessssssss
