Anyone that knows me (or follows me on Instagram) knows that I am obsessed with Quest bars.
What are you Quest bars, you ask? The best things to happen to protein. No but in all seriousness, they are a protein bar that come in a variety of flavors (16 I believe), that pride themselves in being high in protein, low in carbs and gluten free.
Now while I Love Quest nutrition, I’m not really on board with their whole philosophy of “Cheat Clean!” and doing reps and squats up in da gym and counting macros ( don’t know what those are and I really don’t care to learn, ok thanks bye.).
HOWEVER, that doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy them!! 🙂
As with others I know, I have my favorite flavors (I can’t get enough Cookies and Cream and White Chocolate Raspberry) but recently I have been receiving the variety packs from my mom (shoutout for the best care packages!! :)) So I have been trying all the flavors and decided to review a couple that are new to me!
LEMON CREAM PIE
With most Quest bars, the “look” is often hard to judge. Sometimes they melt in the car, into weird morphed shapes. However this particular flavor seemed to have chunks of lemon in it, so A for effort on that Quest.
Honestly, it gave off the smell of Lemon pledge, which made me a little leery about how it might taste.
NOPE. Just nope. This was the first Quest flavor that has disappointed. The lemon was way too artificial and strong, and it ended up tasted a lot like Lemon Bacardi (which in itself, tastes like bad decisions). It was too much to handle, even though I finished the whole thing.
This is one of those flavors that people don’t care for or can’t get enough of. I suppose it’s really up the individual and their taste preferences, however for this girl, it just wasn’t cutting it.
PEANUT BUTTER AND JELLY
Nothing too special. Can’t see any chunks of anything or any bright colors. Just plain looking.
Once again, nothing special….no aroma given off.
Wha wha what?? I heated this one up for a little bit and could instantly smell the peanut butter! After a few bites, I actually got some crunchy peanuts! And I could actually taste some strawberry jelly, which was incredible.
I really liked this flavor! For what it was worth (sometimes PB&J can go terribly wrong) it pleasantly surprised me! Not top of my list, but definitely a flavor I’ll try again!
And of course I partook in one while watching my fav, Parks and Recreation ❤
That's all folks!
