I chose the Blueberry and Chocolate muffins and Chocolate VitaTops.
Here’s the nutrition info for the blueberry muffin.
Here’s the nutrition info for the chocolate muffin.
Here’s the nutrition info for the VitaTops. Other yummy flavors are available that I didn’t find in my local stores.
Pretty good for those with sensitivities, allergies, or concerns. Also, a good choice for those watching calories or points.
There were only instructions on the muffins to thaw for 4 hours to eat room temperature or microwave from thawed or frozen.
I don’t use our microwave and we didn’t even have one for almost 5 years. Our rental house has one but I never use it.
I chose to try to bake the muffins from frozen to see if that worked.
They were warm and crisp on top. Perfect.
I liked the blueberry ok. The texture is a little chewier than I like and they’re very sweet with lots of huge blueberries. Maybe with a streusel topping?
I toasted the VitaTop as per instructions. It wasn’t warm enough in the middle, so I know to toast it longer next time.
Then, my taste tester went to work.
We liked the flavor and texture of the VitaTop, but it needed to be warmer so the chocolate chips would be gooier.
Our first impression of the chocolate muffin wasn’t great. It seemed bland and not sweet enough. The texture is a little tough. But halfway through, we discovered melty chocolate chips that improved the flavor and texture immensely.
He thanked me and Garden Lites for the yummy treats!
I love the Garden Lites Superfood Veggie Cakes, but I can’t find them in any of my local stores anymore. I’m so sad. They are perfect for a small meal or snack.
I was able to find Garden Lites products at Kroger, Walmart, and a local grocery store. I’m sure our local health food stores have them too.
Garden Lites are super quick and easy (if you remember to thaw early or use the microwave)…they’re fine in the oven. The VitaTops are great in the toaster on about setting 2-3. My kids can make these easy treats for a meal or snack or tea time.
