The 411 by Maria:

My daughter is extremely picky and not always hungry. She doesn't eat meat well maybe bacon once a month or "chicken nuggets" once every other month so getting her to eat something before we leave the house for the day gets annoying.  She always says "I'm not hungry". Come something! I was pleasantly surprised when she tried the Garden Lite's muffins. She loves both flavors we have tried so far. The Chocolate Muffins and the Blueberry Oat Muffins which were the flavors I could find at my Shoprite.

She eats one every morning for breakfast and around 6 says, "I can really go for another muffin but I want to savor them."  She savors them so much that she has been using a Demitasse spoon to eat them so it takes longer.

What We think:

They are both good and easy for quick on the go meals which is exactly what we need these days. You can defrost if you are going to make them immediately but why bother. You can take them from the freezer to the plate in 30 seconds. Simply pop in the microwave for 35 seconds and eat!

 The chocolate has a lovely chocolate flavor. It is tasty. Good alone or with milk or coffee.  It doesn't have a nasty aftertaste. In fact, it is the perfect treat when you want some chocolate. They are
Allergy-friendly! Gluten, Dairy & Nut Free and only 120 calories.  If you are doing Weight Watchers they are only 5 points.

We both like the Blueberry Oat Muffins better. The blueberries are big and you can really see the veggies in there. They are moist and delicious. This is her go to muffin and she cannot wait to try others.

Garden Lites range from $4 and change to $8 and change depending on where you buy them from. They were over $5 at my Shoprite but my daughter loves them so I have purchased again since receiving review coupons.

We think they taste amazing and were surprised to see how many veggies we could see in the muffins. They taste like homemade to me. We love them!
Disclaimer: I received coupons for the opportunity to try Garden Lites. No monetary compensation was offered.
