I can't believe I've gone this long without a quest bar. I got some today and am looking forward to trying one.
I have one unanswered question even after reading this thread: can I eat a bar as my after dinner snack? I don't do a lot of restricteds and when I do I usually eat them early in the day.
Thanks for the help

You can have your restricted any time of day.

Thanks Lisa!! In that case I'll have it right now. Well as soon as I decide which one.

I finally tried the Quest bars and I guess it must be a textural thing for me, because I really didn't care for them. I tried baking the chocolate chip cookie dough bar as suggested and it was "meh". DH thought the best one was the strawberry cheesecake, but said it was so/so. Also tried a few others and I don't think Quest bars are for us. Will be getting my order from Nashua Nutrition tomorrow and am so excited to try some new snacks!

I love the cinnamon roll quest bars and try to work out how I can eat one every day, they totally remind me of bit o honey and don't have that aftertaste that so many of these foods have. I really liked the vanilla almond and the chocolate peanut butter, but found the aftertaste too strong.

I started using the Strawberry/cheesecake Quest bars as me daily restrictive. It takes longer to eat/chew and fills me up much more that the IP peanut butter crunch ones. Plus, it saves me $1.50 a day.

I just ordered one bar of each flavor from the Quest site and used both the mixbar and crossfit coupon codes (enter as 'mixbar,crossfit'), so 14 bars came out to $29.something including shipping. I'm already planning to try each flavor in cookie, chilled/frozen, and room temperature forms. Yum. If these taste good it will save a lot since my IP bars are now $5 each.

I just baked my chocolate chip cookie quest bar - I cut it into 10 pieces and squished flat with the bottom of a juice glass. 6 minutes at 350 on parchment paper and I had 9 delicious little chocolate chip cookies - I ate one without baking because I'd never had this flavor before. I definitely recommend baking these - they were great!

I am with you, I didn't care for them. My husband LOVES them. I think it's a texture thing for me, I could eat a little of the chocolate chip cookie dough one but not much.

Is there a new coupon code for Quest? Crossfit and mixbar have both expired.

Posting this here so it won't get lost


The Quest Coconut Cashew bars don't fit our IP profile for alts (or maybe you could call them Super-restricted and limit to once/week). They have too much fat. Take fat calories (60) multiply by 3 (no more than 1/3 calories from fat) and you can see that there are too many calories from fat in this bar. You'd want no more than 56 calories from fat to be less than 1/3

The other Quest Bars that don't work (based on fat content) or would be Super Restricted:
Vanilla Almond Crunch,
Mixed Berry Bliss,
Peanut Butter Supreme,
Peanut Butter & Jelly,
White Chocolate Raspberry,
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

All of the other Quest bars would be restricted. There are two that fall right on the edge between restricted & non (Choc Peanut butter & Strawberry Cheesecake). Fat cals are under 1/3 (but not way under) and they both have 8 g carbs. I'd still personally them restricted.
