Recently I received a box full of goodies from Quest Nutrition. The bars are high in protein (20g), high in fiber (17g) and available in a ton of flavors. TONS of flavors, from things like chocolate peanut butter to strawberry cheesecake.
I sampled a few of them and found they had really good flavor with a funny protein bar texture, but my husband really did the bulk of the sampling. Here are some of the highlights of his feedback on a few flavors:
- Cinnamon Roll is “deliciously tasty”
- Berry is “meh”
- Lemon Cream Pie: My jaw was tired after eating it. Decent lemon flavor.
- Vanilla Almond Crunch should be called “plain”
In addition to the protein bars, they make peanut butter cups. In a two peanut butter cup serving you get 20g of protein and 1g of sugar. It wouldn’t be fair to put them up against the peanut butter cup candies in a face-off, but they are pretty good if you’re not doing a direct comparison. They have a little more crumbly texture inside than most peanut butter cups. They taste slightly artificial, but still they can satisfy a craving for sweets.
And after sampling all the flavors… well, this happened:
Yep, we bought a whole bunch more of them. They have become a staple for my husband during his busy season. So well-played Quest, you’ve hooked new customers!
