ALL: Every single Flavor of Quest bars reviewed My new favorite
Quest bars: I wrote this every time I tried a new flavor. Hence these ideas are pretty accurate, from my point of view.
In short, the All natural line has less sweetener after taste, except for some flavors like Apple Pie and Mixed Berry Bliss, which still taste great despite the sucralose and not having stevia
Now, berry bliss is my favourite now. This is despite having sucralose and not stevia as the sweetener . I just don't get any after taste And the taste is the best. I really like the blueberry bits in the bar, and the bar doesn't harden like strawberry cheesecake does. The downside is the 200 Cals and the price. Though the ingredient list really is healthy. I'll be buying more of these ones !
NEW LINE (STEVIA)
1.Strawberry cheesecake all natural line
The first my wife and I tried. Chewy, quite filling, mildly sweet, not extremely delicious, 160 cal **** taste B+
2.Cinnamon roll 170 Cal
Chewy, cookie like, cinnamon flavour subtle. Coconut seems to be there too. Not very sweet and artificial sweetener not very prominent. Quite filling.Tasty **** B+
3..Chocolate peanut butter 160 Cal
Chewy, like chocolate brownie, less aftertaste, also less taste B ***
Browner, better tasting than the sucralose brownie. Though I find I really don't enjoy peanut butter flavours
4. Lemon Cream pie 170 cal
Lemony taste, as expected ! Chewy, no fruit bits, almond flecks? Aftertaste not too bad. Taste: B minus ***
5. Coconut cashew 170 cal
Tastes of real coconut. Has the same stippled beige appearance most of the bars have. Am not a great coconut fan. Sweetener is stevia and seems to make some difference. Has real cashew bits . Taste B ***
OLD LINE (SUCRALOSE)
1. Peanut butter and jelly 210cal
Chewy, peanut butter predominates, not much jelly. Artificial sweetner rather prominent . 210 cal! ** Taste C+
2. Chocolate brownie 170 Cal
This ones different . Dark brown. Like a real brownie, gives you the sensation of actually cheating on your diet, still chewy. Great color and aroma. Initial bite was pretty good, then the sweetener aftertaste kicked in. 2 nd bar: ditto, looks and smells great, opinion killed by strong after taste Taste: B minus ***
3. Mixed berry bliss 200 cal
Pretty good actually, was expecting a lot of aftertaste , but surprisingly it isn't very prominent , contains actually visible blueberry and strawberry bits. Chewy. Taste : B+ ****
4. Apple Pie 170 cals
Quite good, chewy, same appearance, has almonds and ? real Apple pieces.Reasonably filling. Taste A ****
Somehow, not much artificial sweetener prominent
5. Vanilla Almond crunch 200 Cal
Chewy, not crunchy, has real almonds, not much of the vanilla flavor . Aftertaste minimal . Reasonably filling. Taste B ***
6. Peanut butter supreme 210 Cals!
Strong after and intra taste. Contains real peanuts and almond flakes. I don't like their PB with sucralose. The stevia peanut butter was a lot better Taste C **

Other bars just dont stack up. Here is why:
By P. Tran
Tastes great (not overly sweet) and a nice little treat while I am on my low-carb diet.
-20 grams of protein. Always a plus, especially if you are trying to gain muscle.
-17 grams of fiber. Thats a crazy amount of fiber! One serving of benefiber has only 3 grams.
-No sugar or sugar alcohols, which can often cause some GI discomfort. Some sugar alcohols also have a high glycemic index, which can throw you out of ketosis or cause your body to store fat.
-Trans fat free
If you are on any kind of diet, you could waste your money on other so called energy bars or snack bars, but chances are you will be consuming the same amount of, if not more calories. You will also be putting a bunch of other junk in your body like tons of sugar, or sugar alcohols or trans fat. Most importantly, you will not be getting nearly as much fiber.
With Quest bars, you get it all: a delicious treat that is extremely nutritious and very filling, without all the JUNK in other bars.
I wish they were a lot cheaper, but quality comes at a price.

Yippee - no insulin spike
By Rose Twine
Quest sent me 2 free bars in the post all the way across the Atlantic, bless 'em.
These are very different from Atkins and 'health' bars I've tasted. I've reduced carbs this year and find that ordinary food now taste incredibly sweet, so I have to spit them out. Most nutrition bars are also sweet and I can tell by heat surges later on that the sugar alcohols and other artificial sweeteners have triggered a big insulin release. Some bars also taste of wood shavings or other odd flavours
Quest bars are naked - ie they have no chocolate covering. They remind me of home made bars, but much more sophisticated and subtle tasting. They are pleasantly sweet and not overwhelming. The texture is firm and not cloying.
I like the Vanilla & Almond flavour best.
Great addition to the market.
Quest bars are the perfect nutrition bar for anyone looking to get top quality protein while dropping some carbs from their diet. They're as delicious and convenient as a candy bar, while maintaining all of the nutrition of a carefully prepared meal that's packed with fiber to make you feel full and to help with digestion and weight loss.
