So more of a treat/snack than an actual meal replacement?

A restricted is one of your 3 packets/day
You would decide if it is at snack or meal time

When I first started eating Quest bars I ate it as an unrestricted, but have since switched it to restricted and seen better results.

I also eat mine as a meal with 2 cups of veggies and sometimes as a snack. It's really your choice. One of the reasons I like these babies so much is it's easy to throw in your purse or backpack and go. Easy to travel with as well.

The GNC website is offering free membership with a $10 order ($15 value) and $1 flat rate shipping. The membership discount was applied to the box of quest bars I ordered. I did it mostly to get the free membership for the discount in the stores.

Got my order and I am enjoying these as a restricted ! So much flavor and density that I don't feel hungry afterwards. Great addition to mixing up my IP options

I swear, on this plan, my tastes for "packets" change so much. I will love something one day and detest it another. The one constant over the last few months have been the Quest bars. I typically order online, but GNC has been having really decent sales and i "squeeze" each one that i choose for softness (they can occasionally have stale/hard ones). I'm so grateful for an option (a restricted one) that i can depend on!

I got the HERO code to work for free shipping. Is there a $$ minimum you need for the MIXBAR code to work?

Get them both. With the mixbar code you can mix up a box and pay box price
