I actually prefer mine cold and chewy. I keep them in the fridge. I also love that they take longer to eat when cold!

I got 8 at GNC on the buy 3 get 1 free sale, trying different flavors...they didn't have lemon.
Sorry to say I haven't liked any of the three I've tried so far.
I'm going to try the microwave trick.
I've tried the brownie, choc/PB, and coconut ones so far.
They all tasted the same except the coconut had bits in it and a faint coconut flavor.

They remind me of tootsie rolls, which I never cared for.

I tried the cinnamon roll one last night. It was actually fairly soft when I opened it but went ahead and microwaved it any way. It was so soft at that point you couldn't pick it up and it was sticking to the plate. I just ate it with a fork. I liked it better than the strawberry cheesecake but still like the IP Cookies N Creme better than any I've tried so far.

I just tried one and I have to say, I don't think that they are worth the risk of damage to my teeth.

Got my box from Quest today (ordered it on Thursday!). I got the 100% Natural Sample box. Of course the 1st one I tried I did before going back to read earlier posts and it was one of the ones that doesn't meet the standards (Coconut Cashew). Luckily the 2 of them are the only ones in the box that have too much fat.

That one was very soft and I didn't have any of the hard to chew, crown pulling, tackiness of the ones I bought at GNC.

That's why I order directly from Quest. Always soft, always fresh. No concerns about messing up any dental work

The ones with too much fat: just count as super-restricted and limit to once/twice per week til they're gone. Then on next order you'll know which ones to get

I will have to order from them. These things from GNC are a challenge.

Amazon.com also has it for $2.08 a bar if you buy the box and free shipping. I just ordered the chocolate brownie one. Love it!!!!!! Seriously tastes like a brownie to me especially when you heat it up for about 10 seconds. Oh yum!!!

I had the lemon bars today and the cinnamon roll one the other day. I don't care for either of these, especially the lemon. My fav so far is the chocolate brownie bar...I'm in love!

Default Wow! Yummy!

So my order finally came 2 days ago, but since I plan my eating ahead a day or two I had to wait until this morning to try my first one.

Banana Nut Muffin with a cup of coffee.

I'm hooked. I think I could eat these every day! (But I won't)

I tried a bunch of these bars and I really liked all of the natural line. Love heating them up slightly and oh yum!! I noticed if you order from the quest site you can order 12 single bars and you will get the mixed bar discount in your cart. I like this because I like variety in my bars. I just wanted to let y'all know in case y'all didn't want to buy 12 of one kind, especially if this is the first time you are trying them. Oh.. and if you enter the discount code hero, it will give you free shipping as well. If your mixed box discount doesn't show up, use "mixbar,hero" and it will apply your discounts at the end. Thanks for all the info on these y'all! Y'all rock!!

I'm so happy to read this! I just received my bars yesterday and am looking forward to eating one of these Banana Nut Muffin bars!

I ordered from the Quest website, ordered the 12 variety box (so I can try everything) and I got one extra free. And it happens to be the one I tried today, so that's good with me!

I think I need to go order another box to get free shipping!
