Grits are an awful southern food. Tastes like cornmeal but nastier. I’m a southerner and even I don’t like them

In my mind I read it as “rise and grind” but a play on words with rice lol. It’s basically flavored cream of rice.

Yeah I know about that combo seen the videos loads of times, even tell people to do it for preworkout meal.

I just use porridge instead of cream of rice


Just don’t get what it is...


We don’t have cream of rice in the UK

Not at all ha. It’s like a very fine, gritty (lol) textured stuff that basically cooks up into a gooey pudding ish with micro chunks.

Personally I love them haha but that description doesn’t sound good at all haha

Eh, grits can be pretty good if there’s onion and garlic, cream, butter and cheese in them. Or maybe a purée of roasted tomatoes- roasted tomato grits. If you’re talking just microwave grits with water... nah.

Says these are 30 day supply bottles, but its 150 caps, and directions says take 2 a day, and that makes the bottle last more than 30 days...View attachment 185893
Got a 36 on the ACT and 790 on SAT before they dumbed it down in maths, but the "maths" on the labels are wrong, the ones on the website are correct. 4-6 per day.

Quest Nutrition Caramel Chocolate Chunk Protein Bar Review





Taste



Caramel Chocolate Chunk –

This protein bar is a spin-off of one of Quest’s long-term flavors double chocolate chunk. The double chocolate chunk is highly overlooked on Quest’s lineup. This bar is a bit different with chocolate chunks and caramel ribbons laced throughout the bar. The caramel is soft, gooey, and packs a luscious buttery flavor that strikes a perfect balance. When paired with the rich cocoa double chocolate chunks it gives you a great one two-compliment punch. The dense cocoa flavor meets a sweet caramel to give you the best of both worlds. I also picked up on small krispies that were sporadic throughout the center of the bar. The additional crunch was a warm welcome to an incredibly soft bar. Overall this is yet another great flavor to the Quest lineup.







Texture



Out of the wrapper you can notice the bar has a very soft quest bar texture with the added flakiness from the krispies laced throughout the bar. The bar was softer then a majority of the other flavors. I was very pleased with this texture and flavor of this bar as it ranks higher on the list of all-time quest flavors.







Formula



190 Calories

7g Fat

23g Carbs

20g Protein

15g Fiber







This bar is flavored with Stevia and Sucralose. The flavoring was great and there was no bitterness associated with the added Stevia that I picked up on.



Cost



Quest retails for about $24 a box making it right around $2 a bar. If you were to buy a single bar off the main quest website it would be around $2.39 per bar. Buying in bulk saves you around 40 cents a bar, but all in all if on sale it’s pretty cost effective for 12 bars for around $16-20. When you factor in flavor, and factor in good calories for less than 200 calories a bar it's a convenient investment.

3. Mocha Chocolate Chip

4. Caramel Chocolate Chunk

5. Apple Pie

7. Chocolate Covered Doughnut

Oatmeal Raisin Almond Butter Outright Bar




Taste

Oatmeal Raisin Almond Butter - This is similar to Marc’s original Almond Butter Chocolate Chip bar, but replaced with the inclusions from Oatmeal Raisin Peanut Butter. The almond butter is the dominant flavor as the oatmeal and raisin additions enhance the bar to the fit the flavors name. The creaminess and saltiness of the almond butter are exactly like you would spoon it out of a jar. The raisins and honey found in the bar amplify the overall sweetness from the bold almond butter flavor. I am a huge fan of Almond Butter over Peanut Butter, and if you ask me this is Marc’s best bar to date. If you like Peanut Butter over Almond Butter then roll with his original flavored bar.




Texture
The texture of the bars correlates a soft cookie. They are a bit firm on the outside but you can puncture them with your finger. The middle is soft, chewy, and melts in your mouth. I have not tried putting them in a microwave, but I would imagine it would melt the chocolate chips. This is a bar that doesn't need to have anything done to it as the texture is just right and is easy to chew.

8. Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip


Cost
$24.99 a Box of 12 bars, which comes out to $2.08/Bar. Given websites do run sales and promotions getting these under $2 would be an easy buy. When you stack them to other bars on the market it is hard to compare them to bars that have a different ingredient profile. Marc takes a lot of pride is using no fake sugars, or fiber sources to construct a whole food bar.

Overall
THE PROS
• Affordably priced at $24.99 for a box of 12 ($2.08 per bar)
• Whole food based snack bar
• Digest easy and don't leave any bloat (like sugar alcohols or artificial sweeteners may do)
• Impressive taste and texture that just melts in your mouth (even out of the wrapper)
• Unique balance ratio of Carbs, Protein and fats

how do you like rule 1? any stomach issues? I am guessing you love it with 20lbs, but had to ask. Anyone else chime in? My stomach is picky when it comes to protein.
Very Taste and Good Quality, never had a stomach issue with it !!
