Oh Quest Bar. How great you are. How pricey you are for my wallet…and how you can’t stop tempting me with new awesome flavors.
I had heard there was a new flavor in town: Cookies and Cream. Naturally I had to purchase one and consider it a business expense. I just HAD to try it and report to you the results.
Results: Awesome. Why are these bars so good?! There are chunks of real oreo style cookie bits. I always double check the ingredients to make sure I didn’t misread how many carbs are in them.
Quest Bars are typically similar in nutrition profile. This bar contains 21 grams of protein and 22 grams of total carbohydrate. Note: pay no attention to “net carbs” and always look on the label for “total carbohydrates.”
I prefer protein bars to be as balanced as possible in terms of carbs and protein. If a bar has 10 gram of protein and 25 grams of carbs, that would be imbalanced and not a good choice.
So as you can see….21 grams of protein and 22 grams of total carbs is a great option. Filling, delicious and a great occasional treat. In terms of cost, these bars are pricey in my mind. As an occasional treat, I do love to splurge. You can expect almost $2.25 per bar depending on where you buy.
