Quest Nutrition Chocolate Hazelnut Protein Bar Review
Chocolate Hazelnut - When the words chocolate hazelnut come together the first thing that pops in my head is nutella. The base of the bar resembles double chocolate chunk which provides a dense semi-sweet chocolate flavor. Inside the bar is added chocolate chips, which enhance the bold chocolate flavor. Lastly, the bar includes hazelnuts to provide a crunchy aspect to provide enhanced texture to the soft protein bar. Overall this doesnt taste like nutella, but every element included is accounted for and true to its name. I am not huge on nuts in protein bars, but Quest nailed what they were going for.
Out of the wrapper you can notice the bar has the usual quest bar texture with the added flakiness from the mix-ins included inside and outside of the bar. Since quest moved back to the original formulation the bar is much softer then the previous corn syrup model. Not to mention these digest much easier and are not hard as rocks.
When Quest went back to their original formula not only has this pleased a large portion of the quest community, but the general supplement consumer as a whole. It makes them digest easier (for myself) and many others. This is a unique flavor that you do not see much of on the market, and they did a good job when you try and manipulate a chocolate hazelnut flavor.
Quest retails for about $20-$24 making it right around 2$ 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 its pretty cost effective for 12 bars for around 20$. When you factor in flavor, and factor in good calories for less than 200 calories a bar it's a pretty nice convenient investment. Keep an eye out because you can see box’s drop as cheap as $14-16 which is a great time to stock up.

Quest Nutrition Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Review
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip – The original quest Peanut Butter cookie was one of my least favorite of their protein cookies. The peanut butter flavor is bold and vastly improved in the creaminess associated with it. The salty aftertaste helps enhance the dense peanut butter flavor to make this so much better then the past. The added chocolate chips provide a rich semi-sweet flavor that goes hand in hand to compliment the peanut butter base.
Out of the wrapper you can tell these are baked cookies. Most protein cookies on the market are glorified circular protein bars. These have a different texture and feel to them to resemble a real cookie. What I do like is they are a bit rougher then most cookies, which you can puncture with your hand. This gives you the chew of a true cookie while not being hard as a rock like some protein bars can be. The texture is just right to give you the best replication of a cookie.
Milk protein isolate and whey protein isolate. The inclusion of butter may turn some people off, but this helps the texture and consistency of the product. The soluble corn fiber (when quest made the change to use this in their bars) won some customers and lost some. I find these cookies settle much easier then a lot of their protein bars do. The best part is there is only 1g of sugar in the cookies.
You can get a box of 12 cookies for around $20-24 depending on the website and sale being ran at the time. If you are a cookie fan this is good alternative to buying the real thing. I personally enjoy the texture compared to most cookies from other companies on the market. The flavoring is good, and the price is reasonable.
That can't happen with oats and honey and if they did change to add more whey and protein that the bar would be incredbly dry. Just like when you bake with protein if you add too much dry and not enough wet (honey) to provide it does not come out good texture/taste wise.Outright bars taste great and I love seeing companies putting out clean products but they just don't quite fit what I'm looking for macro-wise. Wish they would release a slightly less caloric bar drop a couple g's of fat, drop the carbs about 10g, and up the protein about 10g = profit!
I have missed the morning style protein bars ever since Quest stopped making their cereal bars. They were near prefect macros for early morning workouts, not heavy, just a good light balance so you aren't weighed down in the gym.The new B.A.R. Bars are good as well, but I am not as big of a fan of the "rice crispy" style bars. Check out the on point (as always) review by The Solution to get a better idea.
