You’ll love this new quest health bar in case you like chocolate chip oatmeal cookies. I enjoy the oatmeal taste much better in relation to the chocolate chip cookie dough but that’s a close second. In addition, I take pleasure in the touch of cinnamon. The other reasons I enjoy this protein snack is the lower calorie and sodium content that I observe intently. They’re definitely a more healthful choice while they do not fit the flavor of uncooked oatmeal cookie dough.
Having said that, I’ve tried out the other flavors for a bite or treat occasionally. Some say I can see why and these are like the chocolate chip cookie dough, but I believe these are better. The imitation sugar flavor in the old ones is a bit strong for me, and with these it is as good. Perhaps it is the cinnamon. I’d purchase these for sure. I believe you’ll enjoy this flavor in case you enjoy chocolate chip cookie dough. Some might say there is an excessive amount of cinnamon, but I didn’t find any issues with it. Your flavor tolerance might be different though, which is fine. Other flavors to try are Smores and Cookies & Cream.
I really like cookies & the chocolate cookies, dough, and cream flavors. All these protein bars really are among the most recent (and some of the best imho) Quest Bar flavors. Of course I needed to try it out immediately, as soon as I saw Quest started selling these. I had some of the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough ones at home around an identical time, and, as other people online have mentioned, both of these flavors are rather similar.
Because of the cinnamon, it does not look to me that Quest put in that much of it, but take that with a grain of salt. I am one of those of folks who uses like an entire tablespoon of cinnamon where a quarter 1/4 teaspoon would do. So it is a flavor I favor to be powerful and can take lots of.
I guess it’ll be noticeable to others. They do not actually have oatmeal pieces per se, but there’s something “oatmeal-like” about them. If you’re able to envision setting cinnamon and oats in a chocolate chip cookie dough Quest bar, you will essentially get a good idea of the taste to expect.
Feel-wise, all these are fairly similar to other Quest Bars. I do not actually see a difference in softness, to be honest. They can be chewy and they do not get stuck in your teeth too much if you heat these up briefly. There are little “inclusions” (the chocolate chips and such), not large balls of chocolate like the other flavors.
I enjoy the macro nutrient balance here: 8 grams of fat, 20 grams of protein, 15 grams of fiber. There is just one gram of real sugar (I try not to worry about counting carbs, and I often have non-caloric sweeteners, but I do look for low sugar levels). I’m counting calories this year and occasionally when I do not have lots of time for breakfast (particularly on weekends) but need to eat, these are a fantastic way to fuel my morning. (These nutrition bars appear to be a favorite of folks on My Fitness Pal, which is a calorie-counting website that is very popular online). I often enjoy the dessert-like flavors of Quest Bars more in relation to the fruity flavors, so I was really pleased to see this new flavor was among the dessert variations.
You can buy these Quest protein bars pretty cheaply on Amazon here because it’s convenient to order them online.
