I was gonna suggest Quest bars. I just did a online chat with a rep from Quest and asked him two questions. New flavors, and why avoid sugar alcohols?. Here are the answers,
Chris: Hi. Sugar alcohols have 3 main negative attributes.
Chris: 1) They can couse cravings for sweets.
Chris: 2) They cause gastrointestinal distress in many people.
Chris: 3) They still contain calories. Some of them, like glycerine/glycerol have even MORE calories than regular sugar.
you: are you gonna make any new flavors.?
Chris: We are developing new flavors right now, we should be having a chocolate and chocolate peanut butter flavors coming out shortly.

These bars are spot on when it comes to flavor. I mean the peanut butter ones are made from peanuts and peanut butter, so you really can't mess that up!.
On the other hand I have never had a Chocolate Peanut Butter, or Peanut Butter protein drink that actually tastes like Peanut Butter!.

I've recently received 2 free bars from Quest...
Both current flavors were EXCELLENT.
Take this review from a guy who HATES CHOCOLATE/PEANUT BUTTER/MOCHA, etc... protein powders.
I ONLY drink/eat strawberry, vanilla, cinnimon flavored protein supplements.
So for me to say those bars were good, WOW!
just wish they weren't so expensive...Powders still cheaper

Just eat less of them. I mean they have 15 grams of fiber per bar!. If you eat 2 you have all you fiber for that day. That's not counting whatever else you eat. Yeah these are great tasting bars. The best I think, no crap whatsoever in them. All natural, low carb...No fake low-carb bs with sugar alcohols either. If only Nutraplanet would start carrying these bars.
