When you’ve made it as a reference on “Seinfeld,” you know you’ve made it big. Anyone else remember the episode where Elaine convinces her old boss to open up a MuffinTops shop? She, like myself, realized the absolute best part of a delectable muffin is indeed the top.
Now the phrase “Muffin Top” may make most people think about body types. Sure, the tighter the jeans, the floppier the muffin top. I’ll readily admit I’ve got my own muffin top, though it seems to be a bit lopsided towards the front. Eating too many chocolate chip muffins can do that to a guy, y’know.
So once again, Allie and I are on a health kick. We’re looking to start eating better and exercising more. Thing is, we both have a sweet tooth and it’s seriously hard to not give in to those cravings.
Making healthy meals is mostly the easy part. Although Friday nights, we’re both exhausted and it’s just sooo easy to make a quick call to Ray’s Pizza for delivery. The real challenge actually is snacking. How do you eat a quick healthy snack when your impatient stomach is screaming for you to fill it with something, anything, at that very moment.
Tired, weak and starving are the perfect combination for bad snacking habits. Luckily, I’ve found a great solution that not only is a healthier alternative but a seriously delicious one too.
I know, I know. You heard the words “healthy” or “organic” and ran for the hills. Just trust me on this one, and you can start focusing your mind on a very different kind of muffin top.
VitaTops MuffinTops are crazy good snack treats that not only satisfy your cravings, but they’re something you and your entire family can feel good about eating! What’s so good about them? Try just 100 to 150 calories a piece. They’re also low fat, high fiber and made with clean and simple ingredients.
With a variety of flavors, you’ve got a number of different unique health benefits as well, including: Organic ingredients, Superfoods such as flax and Chia seeds, protein-rich and even Gluten Free.
Current VitaTops MuffinTop flavors include Deep Chocolate, Wild Blueberry, Superfood CranBran, Protein Chocolate Peanut Butter and Protein Banana Chocolate Chip.
To be honest, we’ve been eating VitaTops for years! They make a fabulous breakfast, either on the go or at home with my morning cup of coffee. My overall favorite is the Deep Chocolate MuffinTop. Yeah these are definitely the best of the bunch in terms of pure deliciousness.
I love my cookies cold, so I either leave a VitaTops Deep Chocolate MuffinTop out on the counter for a few minutes to defrost slightly, or pop it in the microwave for about 10 seconds. Just enough to take the chill off. These make a great dessert or mid-afternoon snack for sure! They’re also the perfect finger food to enjoy while plopped on the couch each weekend for Family Movie Night!
Yep, even my kids love chomping into the Deep Chocolate MuffinTops. Which means it’s real easy to just toss in their lunch bags for school a few times each week.
My second favorite, though, is the Wild Blueberry MuffinTop. VitaTops nailed the quintessential muffin perfectly.
Unlike the Deep Chocolate, I actually like to warm up my Wild Blueberry MuffinTop. I’ll even toast it in the toaster oven (where else do you toast things?), and spread a bit of butter on top. Definitely a great way to start your day off right!
So where do you find VitaTops MuffinTops? Well, for starters you can come visit me and look in our garage freezer. But that’s easily an unnecessary trek for most of my readers who live all over the country. So don’t fret. You can find VitaTops at your local Publix, Kroger, Stop & Shop, Shop-Rite, or Target locations.
I found my latest bunch at our local Shop-Rite where we do all of our weekly grocery shopping anyways. It’s tough not to get a second shopping cart to fill with purely VitaTops, but I guess that’s why my wife does most of the shopping.
If you’re looking for a scrumptious healthier snack alternative, I definitely recommend you get yourself a box of VitaTops MuffinTops or two. Try all the flavors too, as you never know which one will be your favorite.
