I’ve been dying for a muffin for days. Of course the logical solution to this problem would be to go buy a muffin. I do live in the middle of Manhattan– I’m sure I could find a muffin less than 10 steps from my front door. But then I remembered this: muffins from Dunkin Donuts contain 500-600 calories each. Even the reduced fat blueberry muffin has 450 calories and 11 grams of fat! I don’t even want to know how many grams of fat are in the regular blueberry muffin. I don’t know that I’ve ever actually eaten a muffin from Dunkin Donuts and I’m certainly not going to start now, but even reading about Dunkin Donuts monster muffins didn’t quell my craving. I understand that the terrifying nutrition facts about Dunkin Donuts muffins are not reflective of all muffins, but just to be safe I decided to stick with VitaMuffins, the world’s only 100 calorie full-sized muffin! (I’m not actually sure if it’s really the only one in the world, but they’re so good they could put everyone else out of business).
With only 100 calories per muffin, these low-cal, low-fat and high-fiber muffins are perfect for a snack any time of day. But that’s not even the best part. VitaMuffins also makes VitaTops— just the top of the muffin, also for 100 calories. My favorite is the banana chocolate chip, which actually tastes like banana bread, but they come in a variety of flavors including chocolate mint, apple crumb, fudgy peanut butter, and pumpkin spice.
I think it’s pretty common knowledge that the top is the best part of any muffin, and VitaTops really saves you the hassle of having to remove the top from the base, and also eliminates any guilt you may feel about throwing away the entire bottom part of the muffin. You can order VitaTops and VitaMuffins online (along with a variety of other interesting products the company makes).
VitaTops are definitely the best (and healthiest) way to have your
cake muffin and eat it too!
