I have seen a lot of WLS peeps blog about Quest Protein Bars and now it's my turn. I first read about them on Shelly's blog The World According to Eggface and then I went to their website Quest Nutrition and learned that there are a few stores that sell them Vitamin Shoppe and certain GNC stores. I found 2 flavors to try at the Vitamin Shoppe Coconut Cashew and Vanilla Almond Crunch by my work and the cashier said that they only carry 4 of the flavors and cannot keep them on the shelves. He wanted to know why they were soooo popular. I told him that I had read about them on a few blogs and they are suppose to taste very good and they have 20g of protein and only 4-6g of non-fiber carbs! They had only 1 of the Coconut Cashew and 4 of the Vanilla Almond Crunch left.
My Husband and I both tried this one several times and we both give it a 6 out of ten. The texture is also like cookie dough and there are crunchy pieces of almonds in it. It's just ok. The vanilla part is a little sweeter than I prefer, but not chalky like some protein items. There are 4 active carbs, 20 grams of protein, and 200 calories.
I have placed an order on Quest's website to get a variety box and some singles to try. The single bars are $2.39 a piece (they were $2.49 + tax at the store) and $24 for a box of 12. Right now there is a coupon code that will give you free shipping and a sample bar. Just use SAMPLE in the coupon code box at the end of your transaction.
