[FOOD] Quest Bars Protein Bars – Yummy!!
Are you a sweet tooth like I am? It’s challenging to stay fit when you have cravings for desserts like chocolates, cakes, candies and you try so hard to control yourself not eating them most of the time because one should opt to eat healthier choices.
But they’re so good!!!!!! A couple of weeks ago John and I went to a “Biggest Loser” bet on who will lose the most body fat and get lean in 2 months. It’s so hard to catch up with him because even if I hit the gym 3x a week and eat as healthy as possible, come afternoon I get snack cravings for cupcakes or milk tea T_T
That’s why when Quest Philippines sent me a box of their protein bars to try. I was estatic! I’ve been hearing from them when I was in the US and based on their reviews, they’re the best tasting protein bar around. So are they really? Let’s see and head on to the review.
|Okay, this shot is a teensy weensy OA but you get the hint, it’s good.|
|I actually take bigger bites than this one. Haha!|
When they say it’s flavored cookies and cream. It tastes like cookies and cream. When they say it’s brownie, it tastes like brownie. But don’t be fooled. When you check out the label and ingredients list it’s simple, short and most are natural. It’s basic base are almonds, and natural flavors like real chocolate chips and real strawberries. That’s why it tastes authentic. Because it is.
It’s not so sweet and a bit salty (I love that)
It looks like a weird cookie bar. It’s a bit thick and chewy that there’s an initial struggle to when biting through it. A workaround is you can pop it a few seconds in an oven (microwave or toaster) to warm it up to a softer consistency. The texture is actually addicting.
I received 12 different flavors but I believe there are more. They also have peanut butter cups alternative to the popular Reese!
To those who are really into this fitness lifestyle. IT’S GLUTEN FREE. That’s right folks. A gluten-free natural protein bar. It has no sugar added and uses natural sweeteners like agave or lohan guo. It’s healthy and natural. A typical quest protein bar has a usual 20g of protein 4-6g of fat and 20-30g of carbohydrates.
BUT, this is where I would advice you not to go protein bar overloading because it does have a high amount of carbohydrates than when eaten too much , is still bad for you. Currently I have a daily limit of 107 carbs.
What is Gluten? Present in grains and wheat that usually causes bloating and negative reactions to people who have celiac disease.

Will I buy them again?
Alright so technically, I didn’t buy them initially BUT they made me want to buy them and stock them in my office drawer so I have something high protein and healthy to snack on when I get cravings especially when us girls get PMS cravings. You can try 1 bar and I’m sure you’d get hooked!
