|I've found that Quest bars can be kind of a mixed bag when it comes to quality. Some of the flavors are so good that I want to burst into song and dance, and others... not so much. For those who don't want to read the detailed review of each flavor, I'll summarize here: my favorite by a long shot is the White Chocolate Raspberry, with the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Cookies and Cream, Mixed Berry Bliss, and Apple Pie as strong contenders for second place. The others had strange or bitter aftertastes.|
Here's the rundown:
Apple Pie - 4.5/5. Tastes like apples and cinnamon, with small pieces of dried apple throughout. The apple pieces are actually quite moist and nice. Half a star off for having 7g of net carbs, though, which is a lot higher than most kinds.
Chocolate Brownie - 3.5/5. There's a flavor in these bars that is reminiscent of alcohol. It's not bad, but if I want chocolate, I have many other, better options than this.
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough - 4.5/5. This is one of my favorites. There's huge chocolate chunks throughout the bar and the cookie dough flavor is really nice.
Cookies and Cream - 4.5/5. Another favorite. It's the same base as the cookie dough, I think, but with big chunks of chocolate cookie and white "frosting" throughout.
Mixed Berry Bliss - 4.5/5. These are great for when I want something fruity rather than chocolate or cookie-flavored. The berry flavor is mainly strawberry-blueberry, and tastes quite true to the fruit. There's also little bits of almonds throughout which give it a nice texture.
Peanut Butter and Jelly - 4/5. Doesn't taste very strongly of either peanut butter or jelly, but I genuinely enjoyed it.
Peanut Butter Supreme - 2.5/5. Oh boy. This kicks off the "here be dragons" section of this review. I loved the flavor of this bar (my notes say "WOW!") until I got a chunk of something extremely bitter in the middle. Maybe it was bad luck, I don't know.
S'mores - 2.5/5. Lingering bitter aftertaste. Your mileage may vary, and I think if I was a person with a s'mores weakness on a low-carb diet, it would be a small price to pay.
Vanilla Almond Crunch - 4/5. If I were a "vanilla almond" person, I'd be very very happy with this bar. I'm not, though, so I won't rebuy.
White Chocolate Raspberry - 10/5. THESE ARE MY FAVORITES OH MY GOSH SO GOOD. The raspberry flavor is tart and intense, and the big white chocolate chunks are really satisfying.
