All of this Anticipation...

I'm a member of several weight loss message boards and I always read posts about people raving about VitaTops. I could eat brownies seven days of the week so these treats seemed right up my alley. After searching several different stores for months I finally found them at a local Harris Teeter. They were kind of pricey - $5.75 for a box of brownies or so I thought they may really be worth it. Not the case. In the store I debated between the Deep Chocolate muffins or the brownies. I finally chose the brownies even though they had some type of nuts on them - which I hate. I just figured I could take them off - no big deal. I decided to have a brownie for my afternoon snack. I was pleasantly surprised that there were not many nuts on the brownie. The brownies were actually quite small but seemed like enough to satisfy my brownie cravings. Now I know these will not taste exactly like a brownie loaded with fat and calories, but I really did expect more. The texture was decent, but they were not that sweet to me. They also seemed kind of dry. For much less I could have had a 100 calorie rice krispie snack. I may or may not try the VitaTops. For almost $6.00 I would have to really enjoy the last three.
