I have found a treat that is not only guilt free, low calorie, low carb, high protein, high fibre, gluten free, no artificial sweeteners...but absolutely delicious! What I am actually considering calling a miracle treat.
I have tried several of the various flavours and have really enjoyed them all. The biggest complaint I hear about the bar is the texture. It's definitely an acquired...texture somewhere between a nougat and a toffee. But to be honest that's part of what I love about them! I find myself satisfied beyond belief when I eat one. They don't give me a huge sugar spike like other protein bars and they leave me feeling like I just ate a candy bar.
So, let me break it down for you:
- Almost “NO” blood sugar increase
- No Upset stomachs – Quest Bars are easily digested
- Reasonable in calories (160-200)
- No GLUTEN
- Softer & Better Flavors making them easy to eat
- No Sucralose
- Lower Sodium
- Low Net Carb Count
- No Junk (Simple Ingredients)
- No Soy
For example the bar I just ate is the following:
It was the cinnamon flavour and so yummy. My current favourite is coconut cashew, but I am definitely biased since coconut is one of my favourite flavours/smells for everything. I have also tried the peanut butter chocolate and strawberry cheesecake. Yum.
Now the other night I tried to just bolus for the net carbs (which was 6g in my other bar). It didn't go over well, I have to play around with my ratio with these since the protein to carb content is so high. I find if I have any sort of carbs with my protein I need to up my ratios. (Which is what I have discovered by having a protein laced smoothie every morning).
So yeah. Go out and buy them. A little pricy at $24.99 for 12, but absolutely worth the cost.
