Nutrition bars generally get a bad rap for their lack of protein, high sugar content, and endless list of ingredients. Quest Bars defy the typical “glorified candy bar” reputation of most nutrition bars. Not only are their stats impressive, they’re made with a relatively small number of recognizable ingredients. Did I mention they’re also delicious?
My all-time favorite flavors include strawberry cheesecake, banana nut muffin, and chocolate peanut butter. While I’m perfectly satisfied with just these three flavors, I was SO excited to hear the company’s recent announcement of their newest flavor, double chocolate chunk. I immediately contacted them for a review.
I broke into the new release after my workout yesterday, and I’m extremely excited to share my thoughts with you this morning!
Taste: Quest nailed it with the brownie texture and taste. It has a dark, rich chocolate flavor that’s studded with dark chocolate chunks. In many ways, it tasted like an undercooked brownie. This flavor is sure to satisfy any chocolate craving.
Texture: The bar has a chewy and substantial texture. I surprisingly found its gritty, doughy texture more akin to a brownie than the chocolate brownie flavor. The chocolate chunks in this bar are also smooth and much less crumbly than the chocolate in the cookie dough flavor.
Nutrition: Like the other flavors, nutrition is one of the company’s greatest selling points. With a high fiber count, only one gram of sugar, and 20 grams of high-quality whey protein, there are no blood sugar spikes here. This bar definitely satisfies. I also like that– unlike the chocolate brownie– this flavor is sweetened with all-natural stevia, rather than sucralose.
Verdict: This may well be one of my new favorites! The texture and taste tops the chocolate brownie, especially with the addition of the dark chocolate chunks. The chunks boast a rich, dark flavor, and I found myself wanting to eat them plain! I will undoubtedly be buying this flavor again.
Have you tried the new double chocolate chunk flavor? What’s your favorite flavor of Quest Bar?
