What type of Protein do Quest Bars Use?

Quest bars use a protein blend of both whey protein isolate and Milk protein isolate.

What We Like

While other bars may boast a slightly higher number of protein grams per bar, we like that this Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough bar has a CLEAN protein profile.  It’s got whey protein and milk protein.  That’s nice and simple.

Quest’s bar is low in sugar, too!  Sing praises to the protein gods for that!  Only one gram of sugar and on gram of erythritol (a sweetener/sugar alcohol that is derived from lichen & algae).  This is quite surprising seeming as it’s a chocolate chip cookie dough flavor and all.  The 21 grams of carbohydrate are also extremely reasonable.
What else do we like?  OH! Have you checked the dietary fiber on this thing?!? It’s like eating several bowls of bran flakes! A whopping 17 grams of dietary fiber in one bar.  That’s 68% of your recommended daily allowance!  I know these bars taste great, but with fiber levels this high, you may  want to limit yourself to one a day .

In addition, the flavor is off the charts for us.

Also you the serving size is perfect.  You know how some large bars may be really tasty but the flavor is quite rich?  Well with those bars it seems like you have too much bar.  Then you have those super tasty ones that are tiny and you end up thinking “Where’s the rest of the bar??”  The Quest bar is a happy medium.

What We Don’t Like

There isn’t a whole lot for us to say here.  One, minor, issue we can find with this bar is the eight grams of fat.  With protein bars it’s rather tough to find good-tasting ones that have low fat content.  The only other issue is that 21 grams of protein is on the low side of the protein scale.  However when you start taking a look at the other posts on this site that show comparisons, you’ll see that eight grams of fat with 3 grams of saturated fat is WAY less than the average in protein bar land; that’s a good thing!

How much do Quest Bars Cost?

In the Amazon store, depending on the seller, you’ll end up paying between $2.00 and $2.50 per bar. Over at bodybuilding.com they run about $2.05 per bar or about $25.00 per box.

How do they taste?

Truthfully this chocolate chip cookie dough flavor blew us away! This hearty bar is loaded with DELICIOUS, high-protein, real, chunky, chocolate chip goodness.  The cookie dough bars have that classic, chewiness/stickiness that characteristic of most Quest bars.  We won’t lie and say that Quest gets every flavor right, but in this instance they most definitely did.
