I am always looking for a good protein bar that is not choked full of sugar and useless ingredients and has high protein with minimal soy. Another requirement for us is that they are gluten free. These bars really fit the bill and we are HOOKED!
It’s hard to choose a favorite but because I do not eat candy anymore, but this is right up there near the top. It feels like you are eating something decadent but doesn’t have the super sweet flavor of candy so no guilt afterwards! It has a slight aftertaste but its not unpleasant.
This was another favorite because, well, it’s chocolate. The only thing I noticed was it was a bit drier than the other flavors but the same texture.
Most of the flavors have a minimum of 20 grams of protein, low carbs and a TON of dietary fiber. Most protein bars seem to be more like candy bars with high fructose corn syrup when I read the ingredients. The first ingredient in these bars… Whey protein! When you read the ingredients. You do not see the word sugar, high fructose corn syrup, or any other junk ingredients.
I am studying to be a clinical nutritionist and I have to say Quest protein bars seem to be a very balanced product. The only thing I would like to see is a product made with pea protein. I have several friends who are gluten and dairy free and due to whey being a dairy based product they are not able to enjoy these. I was even going to split a bar with them if they had been dairy.
