I had heard about Quest protein bars in my fitness circles for a few months so when they contacted me to review them, I was ecstatic! I am all about finding great products that I can use for myself and recommend to you!
I got this mega shipment and it took everything I had to not tear into them. Haha. I love trying new products, especially ones that have a nutritional label that matches what I look for!
Protein bars and shakes are a very convenient way to replenish. Eating real, whole food would be my first choice for you in regards to protein replenishment, but let’s be honest. We don’t always have a well timed meal ready for us and if you are like me, my workouts are in between a million other things that I’m doing in the day. Grab and go is my middle name! 🙂
I’ve tried quite a few protein bars. Some I get from the grocery story, others from health stores. We all have different criteria for what makes a “good” protein bar. Mine include quality ingredients, high protein count, low sugar count, taste and price point.
Quest has 2 lines of protein bars–the “original” and “all natural”. The original line has sucralose in it and if you’ve followed me for any amount of time, you know that I don’t eat foods with it in it. So, I chose the natural line that has stevia in it! So glad that they give us these options! Here is a comparison of 2 of their bars from both of their lines.
The flavors for the all natural line (of which I tried) are:
– Coconut Cashew (my FAVORITE)
– Strawberry Cheesecake
– Cinnamon Roll
– Lemon Cream Pie
– Chocolate Peanut Butter
Don’t these sound yummy? I think your sweet tooth for totally be satisfied if you had one of these!
The texture/consistency of these bars are different than others that you may have. They aren’t “grainy” like many others out there. You can microwave them which will really soften them up! I know many people who take them and crumble them on top of their night treats, like ice cream or yogurt! Yum! I usually ate them just as they were right out of the package.
The only negative that I found was the aftertaste. Both my husband and I felt that they had a little bit of that but it wasn’t anything that lasted long and it was still worth eating the bar!
WHERE can you get these?
