The microwave tip is from Quest website. I think they have other serving tips on their website. I discovered Quest bars several years ago, but overate those, like everything else
I know we don't "count calories" on IP but that is because IP products control calories for us. When we stray to alternatives, the calories become an issue and Quest (for me) are higher calories than most of my nonrestricted IP packet choices, which are closer to 100/packet. For this reason, even if fat/carbs are okay for non-restricted, I still count them as restricted. Every one I have ordered has been above 150 cals. (2 had 160, the rest are higher than that)
Each one of these bars has a slightly different ingredient/nutritional profile. Choc/Peanut Butter and Strawberry Cheesecake are the 160 cals, both 5 g fat & 8 net carbs. Lowest of all the Quest bars.
