Thanks, I'll check again!

I did find a few flavors here in town. I tried the chocolate brownie and apple pie. Heaven, heaven! Now I'll just be researching counts for other bars I can have!!

Those are two of my favorites! I also LOVE the cinnamon roll one. I keep a box of each at all times! The only one I don't keep extras of is the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough. They are TOO good! I don't think I'd overindulge, but I'm not taking the chance either. :D

Glad to see you like those Quest bars too. I don't know how they got the chocolate brownie bar to taste to much like a brownie, but it's serious chocolate love for me!

THANKS! Almost halfway there! :)

Uh oh. Cookie dough? I should stay away!

Yes. Too good. One tastes like I should have another.
I can't buy them
I don't want craving-inducing foods around

By the way, the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough is 190 calories - very high for any of alternative foods and it's also 36% calories from fat. Very high which make it restricted.

Has anyone noticed if the Quest bars have slowed down your weight loss?

Mine's been pretty consistant with or without the bars. I only have 1 a day at most and I don't eat any restricteds due to the soy so I might not be the perfect person to reference.

I count them ALL as restricted. There are actually two that can squeak-by as unrestricted and two more that are a bit high for IP P1. Read labels carefully!

This is what I said about Quest bars earlier in this thread: Since most of the unrestricted IP products I eat are in the 100-calorie range (80-110) and my only IP restricted I eat (White Cheddar Crisps - everything else has soy or gluten) has 160 calories, I count ALL of the Quest bars as restricted and Quest Bar over 200 cals I wouldn't eat while on P1. This is just me. Not trying to debate what anyone else is doing. I'm still mostly using IP products but had to supplement with alts due to cutting out both soy and gluten.

Anybody ever notice having gas/bloating with Quest bars?

I haven't experienced anything like this, but I imagine that it could possibly depend on the flavor or type of bar.

I typically eat the chocolate brownie bar and apple pie bar.

Which ones are you eating?

Just tried the chocolate peanut butter bar. Not as amazing as I expected, but still tasty and quite filling -- plus took a good amount of time to eat. The 20g of protein were very welcome and it felt like more than other bars.

Cinnamon roll and chocolate brownie...gosh I hope I'm wrong since they're half the price of IP snacks and made with Stevia....

If you haven\'t used "sample" or "hero" try those. They\'re usually good for 1 use then you can\'t use them again. What I do is order once under my name and then once under DW so we get to use the same code twice.

I just did a Google search and looks like "CrossFit" is the Apr free shipping code.

The other option is to sign up for a regular weekly or bi-weekly order and they\'ll take 10% off but unless you\'re getting 2 or more boxes at a time that doesn\'t even come out to free shipping.
