Vitalicious Deep & Velvety Chocolate VitaBrownie Review

VitaBrownieBrownies are every chocolate-lover's dream - dense and moist ... who can resist?! But with an average restaurant brownie weighing in at around 400-500 calories, these are by no means a snack to have regularly. There are some low-calorie options out there like Glenny's Brownies, but for another delicious, nut-sprinkled, low calorie brownie fix, look no further than VitaBrownie Deep & Velvety Chocolate Brownie.

Each brownie weighs in at a full 2 ounces (Glenny's is only 1.45 ounces per bar) but provides only 100 calories. Don't think that those 100 calories are deficient in nutrients, though - the folks over at Vitalicious manage to pack 6 grams of fiber (25% of the daily value for fiber) and 4 grams of protein (as well as 20% of the RDA for calcium and 50% of the RDA for Vitamins A, B6, B12, C, D, E, iron, folic acid, biotin and zinc).

These brownies taste pretty fantastic! The chocolate is way more natural-tasting than Glenny's, and the consistency of the brownie is dense and delicious. Although walnuts aren't my favorite, the sprinkling on the top of the brownies adds a little extra oomph. They are especially good when microwaved for 30 seconds (I've also eaten them cold and they're good that way too).

With the impressive nutritional stats, I had to wonder what the ingredient list looked like. When I turned over the package, I saw: water, whole wheat flour, egg whites, maltitol, organic evaporated cane juice, cocoa, chocolate chips, soy fiber, inulin, wheat gluten, dried honey, erythritol, wheat protein isolate, fruitrim, walnuts, natural flavor, leavening, lecithin, sea salt, xantan gum, vitamin A, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, vitamin C, vitamin D, vitamin E, folic acid, iron, biotin, zinc. Not the most pronounceable ingredient list, but far more natural ingredients than in some desserts.

A box of four goes for around $5.99 at the grocery store or $22.65 + shipping for four boxes of four at Vitalicious.com. Kind of pricey, but worth it for a portable, healthy chocolate snack - especially if you're feeling for something chocolatey.
