Vitacost Products

I first discovered Vitacost December 2011. Amazon was my go to store for discounts and fast shipping. Amazon prices are no longer competitive for the products I love and they no longer offer 2 day free shipping with subscribe and save. With Vitacost Set & Save you get 10% off your locked in lowest price when you order. Yes lock in guarantee lowest price for a product during your ordering cycle.

Gluten free and allergy free foods are hard to find in my local stores. We don't have the convenience of an All Natural Store. Now that Vitacost offers Set & Save I don't see myself shopping around for the best price. I know Vitacost offers what is best for my family.

I recently received a package to review of the following:

Kind Plus Antioxidant Bars Dark Chocolate Cherry Cashew  

Very tasty and satisfies my Chocolate cravings. Even my picky toddler liked this.

  • 50% DV Antioxidants Vitamins A, C, And E
  • All Natural
  • Gluten/Wheat Free
  • 3g Fiber
  • Non GMO, No Trans Fats
  • Very Low Sodium
  • No Sulphur Dioxide
  • No Hydrogenated Oils

Promax Fit n Crisp Cinnamon Crunch


Toddler and Cross-Fit Husband approve.

•  High in Protein
•  Crispy Treat Texture
•  Peanut Free Snack
•  13g Protein
•  140 Calories
•  3g Fat
•  Naturally Flavored, Cinnamon, Crispy Treat

 Pure Bar Gluten Free Bar Wild Blueberry



So tasty that I didn't share. The texture reminded me of a fig newton bar. 
  • These bars have 400mg Omega 3, Low Sodium, 4g organic fiber, healthy antioxidants.
  • 1 ½ servings fruit per bar.
  • These bars are totally RAW and VEGAN.
  • Organic, Healthy, Delightful.


 Promax LS Lower Sugar Energy Bar Peanut Butter Chocolate


Not pleasant tasting and high in Sodium. My cross-fit husband gives it two thumbs down-and he is a peanut butter addict.

  • All Natural
  • Meal Replacement
  • On-The-Go Snack
  • Workout aid
  • Naturally sweetened with Stevia
  • 18g Protein
  • 9g Sugar
  • 56% Daily Value Fiber
 Natural Vitality Energy 28™

This has a unique flavor. It wasn't palatable in water alone. My husband uses it in his protein drink. I did feel energized. My husband did not however he was talking a mile a minute shortly after drinking it. I could see this working in a smoothie.  
  • Energize Naturally

  • Golden Chlorella Omega NUTRIENT-DENSE GREEN FOOD
  • 24 Organic Fruits and Veggies
  • Bioenergy Ribose

  Angies Artisan Treats Kettle Corn White Cheddar

We fought over the popcorn. It was gone in seconds. The taste is amazing.

  •  Made with Sea Salt
  • Whole Grain
  • Gluten Free
  • Kosher

  • • HE + Standard Compatible
    • Fragrance Free
    • Hypoallergenic
    • Biodegradable
    • Non-Toxic
    • Kills Odors
    • USDA Organic 


    It's fragrance free of artificial fragrances but like anything that comes from nature it has an odor. It does not scent your clothes at all. My verdict it still out. It did brighten colors and whiten my whites HOWEVER it is NOT a stain remover. The stain will appear more visible. It does soften my clothes A lot! I have used this sample well over 10 loads and it's still working. I think it lasts longer for me since I use cold water for most of our laundry.

    Honey Girl Organics Body Crème


    Ingredients: Organic extra virgin olive oil, purified water, organic beeswax, organic honey, organic bee pollen, organic propolis, essential oils.

    This is the first product I have used that contained bee pollen (well besides raw honey). Oddly enough it calmed the itch of my mysterious hives. It has an unusual scent. I am pretty sure there is Lemongrass Essential Oil. Given that I make my own skin products I wouldn't recommend paying $23 for 4oz but it does soothe my skin.

    Honey Girl Organics Personal Lubricant


    It looks just like the creme above without the lemongrass scent. I tasted this straight from the container since it's labeled "tastes good" but it really doesn't. It's very thick unlike most lubricants.

    • Intensifies sensation and has excellent staying power
    • Created from pure and organic ingredients
    • Completely free of parabens, glycerins, fragrances, hormones, silicones and petroleum products
    • Feels good and tastes good

    Aloe Cadabra Personal Lubricant Natural Aloe 

    Texture is like most lubricants. It's a clear gel. I would even use this on other areas of my skin for moisturizing. It could work as a hair gel too.

    Ingredients: Organic aloe vera gel, vitamin E oil, xanthan gum, citric acid, potassium sorbate (food grade), sodium benzoate (food grade), organic vanilla essential oil.

    As you can see Vitacost has a wide range of products. Something for cross-fit, gluten free, organic skin care and personal care etc. Check out Vitacost.com today.
