Default Best Protein Bar on the market, bros!

No I'm not inviting you to post your opinion of what you think it is. I'm here to tell you. I don't work for Quest Bars either. I just want to give you a heads-up on some great nutrition.

20g protein, 1 gram sugar (6g sugar alcohol), and a whopping 17g of dietary fiber (68% of RDV)

Oh, and it tastes GOOD AS HELL!!!

iDK bro, I have a hard time choking them down. The texture is too gummy.

I prefer these:



Gluten free, tastes like a rice crispy square with peanut butter and chocolate

S'Mores Clif Builders have been the best I've tried so far, but I've never tried those ones you posted.




What's the price look like on the Quest ones? $2?

Yeah. You may be giving up a little on taste by making the switch to Quest from the S'Mores Lif Builders, but it has a lot less sugar and better quality protein (no soy, which can increase estrogen).

They taste great to me even though hateraid doesn't like the texture of chew. I personally love the texture, it's like a Laffy Taffy bar.

Cinnamon Roll is definitely the recommended flavor, but maybe start out with a variety pack to see what you like best.

All the ones ya'll posted are basically high protein candy bars. Yes they have 20g of protein, but it's not worth the sugar and shitloads of carbs. This is the reason I stick to isolate shakes and never bother with bars.

I've never seen Quest bars but if the nutrition facts are legit (6g net carbs) then I will have to try them.

Whenever someone asks you what protein bar they should be eating... always reply with "Quest Bars... best bars".

Yeah I basically just get them instead of a Twix or something if I'm at the store and I'm craving a candy bar. I'd say I have maybe 1 a week, 2 max. I'm never gonna reach a point where I don't let myself have ANYTHING unhealthy, life's too short for that shit, but I figure if I'm craving chocolate I might as well get something with a good amt of protein.

I think they might be bullshitting about the fiber content though.

How does 17g get packed into such a small bar without tasting like straight cardboard?
