Quest Bar Love

I wanted to share a post about my love of Quest bars!  I am in no way affiliated with Quest I just really love them and have received a few questions about them!

Quest bars are low-carb protein bars that can be used by fitness competitors in all stages of their training (so they say).  Which means they can be used in all stages of the LiveFit trainer!  They can be used by anyone really– I hear they are great for people with diabetes as well.  They are low-carb, low-sugar, high-protein and high-fibre. They also happen to be pretty tasty.  Calories range from 160-210 calories per bar, depending on the flavour.

My current Quest bar stock pile.

 

Quest has two different lines of bars– the original line and the natural line.  The original line is sweetened with sucralose (an artificial sweetener) while the natural line is sweetened with stevia (a natural sweetener).

I find that the original line is much more chewy than the natural line, but warming them up solves this issue (and makes them extra tasty).  I have tried all the flavours so figured I would share a few quick points about what I thought.

Original Line Flavours:

Peanut Butter Supreme – Tasty but not “peanut buttery” enough for me!

Vanilla Almond Crunch – My favourite of the original line.  Rich vanilla taste with slices of almonds!

Chocolate Brownie – NOMS.  Looks like a real brownie and tastes a lot like (not exactly like..) a real one, when you heat it up.

Peanut Butter & Jelly – I OD’d on this one.  Really liked it for a while but overdid it, hah.  Really does taste like PB & J!

Mixed Berry Bliss – I liked this one but didn’t LOVE it.  It is made with real berries though!

Apple Pie – O.M.G. Broil this badboy on each side and you’ve got some healthy apple pie. Actual apple slices inside!

 

Natural Line Flavours:

Chocolate & Peanut Butter – Again, could use more PB…but this is true of most things, no?

Cinnamon Roll – MY FAVE QUEST BAR OF ALL TIME.  They’re so soft and cinnamon-y and delightful.

Lemon Cream Pie – Love this one too, but do note that I don’t taste the “cream pie” in the whole “lemon cream pie.” They might actually taste like Pledge…hm.  I like them anyway, hah.

Coconut Cashew – MY SECOND FAVOURITE QUEST BAR OF ALL TIME.  When I first ordered these I only ordered two single bars instead of a case.  ERROR.  I totally underestimated this flavour.  It is tastes like coconut without the texture and has pieces of cashews! Noms!

Strawberry Cheesecake – It is a Quest bar, so it is tasty, but again, I can’t taste the “cheesecake” in the whole “strawberry cheesecake” factor.

I generally prefer the natural line because it is more clean than the original line and because it is much softer to chew!

I am in Canada so I buy these bars at either www.lowcarbcanada.ca or www.thelowcarbgrocery.com.  I have been lucky enough to find a couple group coupon deals for Low Carb Canada that allowed me to get 50% off my bars!  I will be sure to post if I find the deal again!

In the US– you can buy these bars everywhere!

  1. Thank you Honey for the birthday wishes! I love you too! See you on Sunday, better bring me a present! Hahah. xoxo

  2. I took your advice and I ordered Chocolate Brownie from the Orignal Line and Chocolate and Peanut Butter from the Natural line. I’ve heard so much about them from people doing the LiveFit program and never knew where to get them in Canada so I ordered them from lowcarbgrocery.com. Can’t wait to get them!!!

    • Danielle @WorkItWearItEatIt says:

      Woohoo! Let me know how you like them! Also, Low Carb Grocery has a points system so make sure you get a membership card so you can earn free stuff!

  3. Ahh thanks for this! I totally need to go buy some 😀

  4. I LOVE Quest Bars. I kept reading abut them on the Live Fit FB trainer but was too scared to order a whole box of them because I’m pretty picky about my protein bars. One day, my boyfriend and I went into a local sports nutrition store and they carried them! I was stoked, and they actually carried alot of flavors. I bought every flavor they had and truly loved all of them (the original line – haven’t tried the natural yet). I keep them on hand for emergencies so that I can grab them and throw them in my purse so I always have an emergency snack!! 🙂

    • Danielle @WorkItWearItEatIt says:

      Oh awesome! I would love to find them in a local store! Hopefully everywhere will carry them soon! They are super handy on the go, that’s for sure!

  5. I love Quest bars! Where do you get them by the case??

    Would love to hear more about your Live Fit experience – I’m tempted to try!

  6. Also try the new chocolate chip cookie dough – AMAZING!!!!

    • I know!!

      Back when I wrote this, Banana Nut Bread and Choc Chip Cookie Dough weren’t out yet. We can’t get the cookie dough on in Canada yet though. I am freaking DYING to try it!!!!
