Remember when I told you how excited I was to receive this in the mail?
Well, it has been a very delicious few weeks. I usually eat a protein bar around 11:00 AM every day at work, before a long run on the weekend, or as an evening snack. It was a pleasure receiving a whole box of different flavored Quest Bars to try.
Why I like Quest Bars:
- 20 grams of protein (something I am trying to get more of these days)
- My stomach tolerates the whey protein isolate
- Gluten free (I am allergic to gluten)
- No artificial colors
- No high fructose corn syrup
- They taste great!
- They “get” me (see below )
My favorite flavors:
- Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough: You may recall my cookie dough confession. If not, you can read about it here. I think this flavor wins “best overall”. I found myself craving this deliciously sweet & satisfying bar and even had one for “dessert” a few times (when my normal dark chocolate supply was depleted).
- Banana nut muffin: ”Best bar for/with breakfast”. Reminded me of a buttery, banana-y, sweet/salty muffin. Enough said.
- White Chocolate Raspberry: There were two of these darling dears in the box Quest sent me. I don’t even like white chocolate but this flavor was absolutely fabulous. Each bite is a whole new experience. Fresh raspberry in one bite, chunk of cocoa butter in the next. You really can’t find a more sinfully delicious way to get your protein in.
- Chocolate peanut butter: This combo never fails me. No matter how they combine the two, chocolate & PB are meant to be together. I recommend that you toss this one in the microwave for 20 seconds… trust me, just do it.
THANKS TO QUEST NUTRITION FOR THE SAMPLES… I am officially an addict.
