Vitalicious Breakfast Sandwich Review

It’s been forever since I’ve done a formal review! I don’t even remember the last one. Exciting. At least for me wlEmoticon smile29 Vitalicious Breakfast Sandwich Review

I heard about the new Vitalicious VitaSandwich on Twitter last week and was super excited. I LOVE Vitatops (maybe more than any other food now that I think about it) and was happy to hear the company was trying something savory and meal-like.

I spotted these at the store today and snapped it right up.

There are two types of VitaSandwich – I went with the veggie version. The other one is just eggs and cheese. The come in a 2 pack, individually wrapped.

They are super easy to make, just heat the frozen sandwich in the microwave wrapped in a paper towel. The instructions say to flip it over after 90 seconds in the micro and I did that too.

This is a picture of the “cooked” sandwich open faced, so you can get a glimpse inside. The cheese is on the bottom of the egg patty.

A two minute egg sandwich would be super impressive if I didn’t make myself a two minute egg sandwich for breakfast this same morning. It’s true.

The VitaSandwich was in serious need of some salt, pepper and ketchup to be enjoyable. Once it had those toppings I shared it with Ben. If it was really good he wouldn’t have even seen it, so that tells you how much I liked it wlEmoticon sadsmile7 Vitalicious Breakfast Sandwich Review – I didn’t.

Here is the nutrition info – impressive, as always is the case with Vitalicious.

Vitalicious Breakfast Sandwich review:

Likes:

Good nutrition stats – 150 calories, 14g of protein

Easy to make

Dislikes:

Price – Two sandwiches cost $4.29

Taste – It was super bland even though it has 14% daily value of sodium (and I added more)

A LOT of ingredients.

You can see the cheese, but you can’t taste it

The best part of the VitaSandwich is the novelty that the company is making a new product, but it’s not very good.

I think my breakfast sandwiches taste a lot better and can be made very quickly too. (I make the eggs in the microwave.) Plus, 150 calories is not enough food for anyone for breakfast. No, it’s not even enough for a little kid, so don’t try and convince yourself that it’s your new low-cal diet breakfast and blame me when you tear into the kitchen after work on a binging rampage, not that I know from personal experience.

I still LOVE Vitatops and don’t think you can get a better 100 calorie treat any where else. But, the breakfast sandwich was not good. Save your money. Better yet, buy some Vitatops and pretend like the sammies never happened.

I ate that sammie as a snack, so my lunch was a lot more substantial – big salad topped with couscous, beans and gorgonzola.

Plus some clearance style chips on the side…

My BFF Cindy came over this afternoon too!  She has a fourth month old baby that I met for the first time today <3 IMG 4472 thumb Vitalicious Breakfast Sandwich Review

Today marks the first time Ben has ever fed a baby! Isn’t that crazy?!IMG 4471 thumb Vitalicious Breakfast Sandwich Review

We had some snacks while catching up. I got these pumpkin sugar cookies from the store this morning. I don’t really like frosted sugar cookies so I scraped it off and donated it to the Grizz. IMG 4470 thumb Vitalicious Breakfast Sandwich Review

Dinner was a random mix of broccoli, cheese ravioli, veggie burger and half a bread stick. I only cut the breadstick in half because I want a big bowl of popcorn while we watch a movie tonight wlEmoticon smile29 Vitalicious Breakfast Sandwich Review

    I’m glad you reviewed the product honestly. Thank you! You should know that I finally got a twitter account! This is a big deal for me! :) twitter.com/runkristyrun

    I saw those Vitatops Breakfast Sandwiches today at the supermarket, and I wondered how they were. Good to know this is one splurge I can pass on!

    That salad looks awesome though–and that’s a lot coming from me, since I usually find salads to be boring :)

    Those vita-sandwich whoswats look like the rest of the super processed, chemical laden unnatural stuff corporations are trying to make billions off – it looks bland and kind o dead :-/ I’ll stick to making my own food!

  4. Ella says

    Your salad looks delicious.
    I’m such a lazy college student – egg sandwiches that you can just heat up in the microwave sounds so appealing. No dishes to clean..thats too bad you didnt enjoy it! And not only am I a lazy college student, but I am a broke college student and the lack of dishes isnt worth shelling out that much cash..

  5. says

    I admit, I LOVE Vitatops but those sandwiches don’t look very good. Still, a great concept but I think I would rather make my own egg sammy.

    Ben looks too good with a baby! ;)

    Glad you had a great day with your friend.

    I seriously can’t believe they are selling two egg sandwiches for over $4 when a dozen eggs only costs like a dollar! It’s crazy how much we pay for convenience. Thanks for the review. On Saturday, my husband and I took a complete break from the world and refused to leave the house all day. It took the term “rest day” to a new level. It was amazing, I highly recommend it.

    I love that they are branching out and trying new things but it is sad that people would rather spend money buying two breakfast sandwiches rather then make them at home — I agree, it is SO EASY to make them at home!

  8. says

    I agree with you on the egg breakfast, I haven’t tried these myself but all I kept thinking while reading this post was doesn’t it take about 3 min to make an egg and toast an eng muffin? I mean even in the frying pan its not that long but in the microwave its even quicker! Plus it probably costs about 75 cents to make! And if you wanted all those peppers just keep a little container of them pre chopped in the fridge… and its a win!

    Thanks for sharing those stats!

    btw, that salad looks super yummy!

  9. says

    I also like to make my own egg sandwiches – super easy and much cheaper!

    I haven’t seen these vitamuffins but I would probably just pass them up as well.

    I haven’t had an egg sandwich in a long time – thanks for the reminder to make one.

    I tried those breakfast sandwiches too and thought they were yuck also! Thanks for the review, I’m glad I’m not the only one that thought they were terrible!

    I tried ‘em- and I agree that they aren’t that good. Disappointing since I am obsessed with delicious Vita Tops.

    Bland, and the texture was not great. The eggs are kind of wet and ‘squeak’ between your teeth if that makes sense. The English muffin was not too bad, though. They should market them separately and stick to baked goods.

    I just tried the veggie one, and I think it’s disgusting. I’m not too picky I’ll eat almost anything, but I threw most of it out. Yuck.
