For people who never heard of or ate Quest Bars:
Quest Nutrition Bars are my go to protein bar. They’re among the few “true” protein bars out there. They are a lot more nutritious than your typical store bought protein bar (more focused on great ingredients, less focus on making them taste like Snickers with a variety of preservatives) while at the exact same time still tasting quite great. The protein/calorie ratio is high compared to the majority of bars, and you are not getting with it as much crap. These additionally fill (satiate) me despite generally being fewer calories. These are perfect for losing weight.
For those knowledgeable about Quest Bars:
Simply comparing flavor/consistency, the Vanilla Almond Crunch is just one of my favorites (and I Have attempted all the Quest Bars). It is a reasonably light flavor so improbable to upset you, and there are small pieces of Almond in it. Consistency is moderate tough and all about on level with all the Cinnamon Roll ones, smooth. Not rough/tough such as the Chocolate soft or brownie like the Apple Pie.
I usually eat Assorted Berry bar or an Apple Pie in the early hours, and Vanilla Almond Crunch or Peanut Butter in the day.
For all those worried about blood sugar:
Beware that among the 10 flavors of Quest bars there are really two different lines. One line has it while the other typically features sucralose as well as the other is natural sugars (sometimes sugar alcohols).
Assorted Berry Ecstasy
Vanilla Almond Crunch
Peanut Butter Ultimate
All Natural (no Sucralose):
Lemon Cream Pie
Chocolate Peanut Butter
Observe that the Vanilla Almond Crunch is included in this list that contains sucralose. So if you’re a diabetic or worried about becoming one, grab the flavors from the second list shown above.
I was told by a trainer (who trains Crossfit) who is really in-shape and super health-conscious, that Quest nutrition bars are some of the world’s best protein health bars out there if you would like to eat or want to lose weight.
Here’s a quick list of calories of each Quest protein bar:
- 160 cal:
chocolate peanut butter – 5 grams fat, 17 grams fiber, 1 grams sugar
strawberry cheesecake – 5 grams fat, 17 grams fiber, 2 grams sugar
- 170 cal:
banana nut muffin – 5 grams fat, 16 grams fiber, 2 grams sugar
cinnamon roll – 6 grams fat, 17 grams fiber, 1 grams sugar
chocolate brownie – 6 grams fat, 19 grams fiber, 4 grams sugar
coconut cashew – 6 grams fat, 17 grams fiber, 1 grams sugar
lemon cream pie – 6 grams fat, 17 grams fiber, 1 grams sugar
double chocolate chunk – 6 grams fat, 16 grams fiber, 1 grams sugar
- 180 cal:
apple pie – (+) 8 grams fat, 18 grams fiber, 1 grams sugar
- 190 cal:

chocolate chip cookie dough – (*) 8 grams fat, 17 grams fiber, 1 grams sugar
white chocolate raspberry – (*) 8 grams fat, 17 grams fiber, 1 grams sugar
- 200 cal:

- 210 cal:
peanut butter supreme – (+) 10 grams fat, 17 grams fiber, 2 grams sugar
peanut butter and jelly – (*) 10 grams fat, 17 grams fiber, 2 grams sugar
These all taste just like you’d imagine. Most Quest bars that I’ve tried over time never disappoint in taste, and I am a chocolate nut. I normally don’t enjoy protein bars that are fruity because of the extra sugar content. This one lives up to every “hoopla” comment that you may have read online. To start with, they may be tacky (as an example, the chocolate brownie ones aren’t tacky). You smell the wrapper right when you open it. There are a variety of small balls of stuff in there, like chocolate chips, almonds, and blueberries depending on the flavor.
It’s almost like eating the real food itself without paying all the extra money or calories to eat it. These quest nutrition bars are excellent meal replacement/shortcuts to a real meal.
I recently purchased a competitor’s biscuits and cream protein bar but it was very good. The majority of the bars out there either taste like garbage, or are candy bars “disguised” as health bars because they are usually full of sugar.
Fiber bars are ok, but their downside is typically low protein and high sugar/carbs.
Overall, if you want to cut the soy, calories, fat, and gain protein, quest is still the #1 brand out there.
Buy the Quest Double Chocolate chunk protein bar here because it’s pretty cheap and easy to get it fast.
