What are your favorites?
I actually haven't tried a lot of different kinds yet. If my GNC's (or other local health food stores) don't have the Quest ones I'll probably order that variety pack.
I sort of went with Atkins bars on a whim; I occasionally make protein smoothies with frozen berries, greek yogurt, and spinach for breakfast, and wanted another protein option that would be easy in a pinch (more often than not I do try to have "real" food though, like eggs
). Anyway, I knew Atkins would at least be low in sugar so I thought I'd give the different varieties a try.
I ended up liking the cookie dough quite a bit, even though they really didn't taste like cookie dough to me.
And it seemed every time I looked at other kinds of bars the sugar grams were much higher than what I wanted. I was excited when I discovered the Pure Protein ones and saw that they were also relatively low in sugar, especially once I realized the texture was so different (softer) than what Atkins offers. Probably not to everyone's tastes, but I like the Chocolate Deluxe and the S'mores, although I'd almost swear that the latter has sort of an alcohol taste to it.
There are other flavors I've been keeping an eye out for; some I've seen sold individually and others I've only seen on the website.
