For those who are watching your sodium intake, the Strawberry Cheesecake only has 105mg of sodium per bar which is one of the main reasons it is my favorite. As another poster mentioned, these are a bit on the hard and chewy side so whenever possible I try to warm them up in the microwave for approximately 15 seconds to soften them up a bit. I treat these more as a snack/mrp when healthier options may not be available or when I am short on time and don't have time to prepare a proper meal. If i know I'll be out all day, I'll usually throw 2-3 of these in my bag along with my shaker and a container with a few servings of protein powder. When I need to eat, I'll mix a shake with 25 grams of protein and then eat one of these bars. For something improvised and on the go, the overall macros aren't that bad. That being said, I would always prefer a real meal whenever possible.
    Absutely agree on the real meal and these as simlpy a snack, sort of go to in a hurry healtier option.

    And, guess I just have to give the quest bars a try..way too many favorable ppinoons. In taste though, are they even remotely as good as Supreme or Oh Yeah?

    With protein bars such as Supreme or Oh Yeah, I like to think of them as high protein candy bars and candy bars are meant to taste good. As for the Quest bars, considering the nutritional profile of the Quest bars, yes they taste good, but not candy bar good. One thing to keep in mind though is that taste is subjective. But IMO they are definitely worth trying. There is a site that sells the bars individually, so you could always order one of each flavor you would like to try and see for yourself without having to buy a whole box of one flavor.

    Not a waste of money at all.
    Not "especially" instead "only" if your bulking. 500 calories in 4 bites with 120 of them calories from protein. Protein bars are only good if your a hardgainer and like braggin about how much money you can spend, id rather spend 50 cents on a can of tuna
    The difference between who you are and who you want to be is what you do.

  7. Instead of protein bars spend $1 on 2 tuna cans and another dollar on a 3 muskateers bar. Thats still cheaper than any 30+ protein bar and probably less calories considering most of them have about 20 grams of fat an 40 grams of carbs which probably dont come from good sources.

    Who can argue for a spending money on a protein bar i can counter argue that with a better alternative

    Personal preference

    If I were to do tuna I'd toss in a bag or 3 of skittles or a payday lol

    Not everyone carries a can opener in their back pocket...well I don't at least.

  12. Quest Bars have to be the best bars on the market and when you nuke them for 10 seconds out of
    the wrapper they are even more tastier. The quality of the protein and the amount of fiber each bar has
    can't be beat.

  13. Looked for these now famous Quest bars tonight as I was needing fuel fast...no luck yet. However, I have been enlightened and now am armed with this powerful new information that will be the defining factor in my bringing sexy back into the New Years...I wont be stopppped!! Im on a Quest...soo lame but couldnt help it

  14. I tried PB&J quest bar. Not bad! But if I wanted a PB&J I would make one. I usually try to curve my non existent sweet tooth with like the chocolate kind, or the cinnamon bun swirl!

  15. Parrillo protein bars are bar none the cleanest i have had. All of his products are very clean and taste great!!! I highly recommend the 50/50 plus organge cream.

  16. I eat 5 berry protein bars a day Lol

    I wish I had a non existent sweet tooth

  18. I am not a big fan of protein bars but if I had to choose one I would say Quest. Also try heating it up for 3 seconds before eating it...it's pure nom nom But eat 2 of them in one day and you will lose 3lbs by in matter of minutes

  19. A newer one I like is power crunch. No sugar alcohols. My kids eat em for breakfast

  20. Try true bar com I think is the name. Create your own bar and reasonably priced.

  21. Ive never heard of most of these brands til this thread...good info guys

    Protein bars to our favorite supps, We like to share the love

  23. I just tried the Quest bar new flavor banana nut muffin and it was pretty good but I am
    sure when I nuke it for 10 seconds it will be even better. They all taste better once you
    nuke them for 10 or 12 seconds and the ingredient profile is excellent.

  24. Quest, hands down

  25. Okay I think I've seen Quest bars in Walmart....never really thought about them much until this thread. Think I'll try 'em! How about Fortifex? Been thinking about trying them too.
    As for whether protein bars are good or not for including in the diet I think it boils down to personal choice, schedule, etc. I don't eat them on a regular basis but I do eat them as sort of a meal replacement between my bigger meals. With my work schedule and being on the road a lot, I find it easy 2 pack food in my cooler that doesn't require heating up, etc.

    Just my humble 3 cents
