Deep&Velvety Chocolate VitaBrownie (16 Brownies)Dark Chocolate Pomegranate VitaBrownies (16 Brownies)

Ahh... Gone again. :/ I keep disappearing on you guys! I'm actually having a little bit of a difficult time struggling with ED... I feel uncomfortable just like I did before I was anorexic. Sigh. I just want to lose the weight again, but I know I can't. Any ideas? So sorry if this is triggering to any of you, but I'm really at a strange point right now.

On to more important things. :) VitaBrownies! I absolutely love these little things, almost as much as I love the VitaMuffins. I still haven't found any VitaTops though, which I find a bit weird. I can't find the most popular item in the Vitalicious company.

So... At first I was a little disappointed that there were only two VitaBrownie flavors at my store, but then I realized there are only two. I got a box each of Dark Chocolate Pomegranate and Deep & Velvety Chocolate. Both sooo good!

Deep & Velvety Chocolate: Imagine a brownie; delicious, warm and melted (from the microwave, shh...), decadent... Now imagine it healthy and GOOD FOR YOU! Sounds impossible? Not anymore. Vitalicious has achieved what we all thought to be fantasy. This brownie has a sprinkling of crunchy walnuts on the top, a con for me, but a pro for some. I'm not really a nut person. The brownie tastes great, but the texture is more crumbly than a normal brownie. I love the petite portion because it kicks my sweet tooth craving. Perfect!

Dark Chocolate Pomegranate: For some reason, I didn't like this flavor as much as the Deep & Velvety Chocolate. It was a little bit more tart than it was pomegranate-y. It's still an amazing snack that I love the taste of, but I just like the other flavor better, although I pick off the nuts. :P

A little bit more than a sprinkling there...

Now, time for the nutrition label. The brownies are almost identical to the muffins. I really think they ARE the same, just in a different mold! :D Still fun to be able to eat a healthy brownie though.

Lovely! One of the best labels I've seen in a while. :) Beware, they are PRICEY. I think these are sadly going to be a once in a while treat. :(

Price: $4.49 per box of four
Calories: 100 per brownie


  1. I can't believe the prices of vitas, but they are oh so worth it :)

  2. So sorry you're struggling - keep your head up and remember that your body deserves nourishment! Weight loss isn't just weight loss - it's loss of a lot of other things as well, including hair, skin, etc - just keep your head up! Look to support anywhere you can, and know that you're beautiful!

    And keep eatin' them delicious brownies, girl!

  3. I didn't know you used to have an eating disorder. What are you feeling uncomfortable about? HAve you recovered, and now not feeling good about your body? I'd love to discuss things with you and try to work things out. You're in my thoughts in prayers.

    Great review, by the way. I'd like to try these. The VitaTops aren't my favorite, but maybe I'd like these!

  4. i like vitabrownies but i prefer vitamuffins actually! and im so sorry to hear you are having a tough time , just remember you do not need to lose are at a healthy place & you should stay there :)


  5. Hey THF, I'm sorry you're struggling. Sometimes you have these ED urges, but that doesn't mean you have to give in to them. Remember why health is worth it. Remember what you truly value. Just because you've become tempted by the ED again doesn't mean you're weak or going to go backwards completely. It just probably means something else is going on. I'd just urge you to keep connected with yourself, with your values, with your beliefs...and, in the meantime, think about what is troubling you.

    Are you a senior in HS? Could it be the upcoming transition of college? Transitions are always a tough time for me. Are you going through a transition?

  6. Hey girl! Thanks for the reviews--they look very yummy!

    I'm sorry to hear you're struggling! I hope you are okay. Life is worth living--I know how hard it is, but you can do it. You are beautiful! Stay strong! Is there anyone you can chat with about this? If not or even if there is, feel free to email me!

  7. I am very sorry to hear you are going though a harsh spot, my dear but remember you are worth full recovery and you can achieve it.

  8. I am sorry you are struggling right now, dear. I can relate to what you are feeling. Really, you just have to hold on and stay strong! Feel free to message me on facebook anytime. I'd be happy to talk to you about anything.

    And Omg, when I saw what you were reviewing, I laughed out loud!
    I just picked these up for the first time yesterday at the market and I thought "I wonder if these taste good!"
    Thanks, love! Hehehe

  9. Oh, man, Vita products are SUCH a splurge :S I've only had the Muffins (TOTALLY agree with your review on them) and the Tops - AMAZING!

    Haven't seen these guys around but definately gonna try to find 'em!


  10. How are you doing, THF?

    I'm thinking of you!


  11. Oh girl, I'm sorry you are struggling right now...but remember, whatever struggles you're facing, it's ONLY a feeling. Don't act on it, and actively fight it, disparage it, and find the logical argument against it.

    Please hang in there! The battle is worth it!
