Good morning guys! If you remember (I don’t know how you could forget! ) the Quest Nutrition giveaway I put on a few weeks ago, then you’ll recall that I said I’d be back with a full review of the Quest products. And so I am!
Quest Nutrition sent me: 2 bags of Guilt Free pasta noodles (Spaghetti & Spinach Fettuccini), 1 Lemon Cream Pie Bar, 2 packages of Peanut Butter Cups, 1 full size Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough bar, 1 White Chocolate Raspberry bar and then a sampler pack of 12 bars that include (1) bar of each Peanut Butter Supreme, Chocolate Brownie, Mixed Berry Bliss, PB&J, Apple Pie, Vanilla Almond Crunch, Coconut Cashew, Chocolate Peanut Butter, Cinnamon Roll, Strawberry Cheesecake, Banana Nut Muffin, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough.
Phew. It was a lot
Now that I’ve finally (finally) tried ALL the products they sent, I can present to you the ultimate guide to Quest Nutrition products!
Just remember that my tastebuds are obviously different than yours so take my opinions with a grain of salt

Review of each product (alphabetically)
Apple Pie bar: 8/10 This definitely exceeded my expectations! It smelled so good (like fresh baked apple pie with lots of cinnamon… mmmmm) and tasted divine! I thought I’d have the same problem as I did with Banana Nut (see below) butttttt I didn’t! I loved this!
Banana Nut Muffin bar: 5/10 I really wanted to like this, I really did! I love banana nut muffins so I figured it would be one of my favorite flavors. Wrong. I did like this flavor, but the banana flavor tasted artificial and I guess I have a problem eating foods that are supposed to taste like other foods. The texture was also fairly crumbly and dry.
Chocolate Brownie bar: 7/10 Like all chocolate protein bars, this bar had the typical “chocolate proteiny” taste to it. However, I still really enjoyed it and after a few bites, it honestly does taste like a chocolate brownie!!
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough bar: 8.5/10 Oh man guys. This flavor has been all the rage, all the talk and now I know why!! It tastes so, SO delicious. Just like a chocolate chip cookie! Please go out and buy this flavor because you will not regret it!
Chocolate Peanut Butter bar: 7/10 It’s no secret that I loooooooove peanut butter. Add chocolate and I’m in Heaven. So obviously I had high expectations for this bar… which weren’t met. It had too much chocolate and not enough peanut buttery flavor. I definitely liked it, but I think it could be better with a better chocolate:peanut butter ratio!
Cinnamon Roll bar: 8/10 Ohhhh yum! Right after you unwrap this bar it starts to smell like a cinnamon roll! Who am I to bad mouth a cinnamon roll?! But really though, this tastes and smells just like one! Yumyumyum
Coconut Cashew bar: 8/10 I’ve never been a huge coconut fan, so I didn’t have high hopes for this. However, the coconut flavor is blended perfectly with the cashew to get an amazing nutty flavor. The smell reminds me of laying on the beach! I’m a fan!
Guilt Free Noodles- Spaghetti/Spinach Fettuccini: 5/10 Maybe my nose is just super picky but I could not get past the smell that these noodles put out! It was really fishy and definitely put me off. However, they were really easy to make and although a little chewy, they weren’t horrible. I think I’d rather stick to regular pasta, though!
Lemon Cream Pie bar: My roommate ate this one because I’m not a citrus eater (yuck). She said it was “pretty good”. PS- photo source to Google for this picture! I didn’t take one of it because I gave it straight to her.
Mixed Berry Bliss bar: 6.5/10 This bar wasn’t bad, it just wasn’t as good as some of the others! I was pretty neutral on it, actually. I don’t have anything bad to say but I can’t rave about it either. It tasted good I just like other flavors more.
Peanut Butter & Jelly bar: 8.5/10 This was the first bar that I tried and it’s one of my favorites! It tastes mostly peanut buttery and there are some hints of a subtle berry flavor. I highly recommend this bar! It also stays intact which is different than most protein bars because of the ingredients… no crumbling with this bar!
Peanut Butter Supreme bar: 9.5/10 YUMYUMYUM. It’s no secret that I adoreeeeee all things peanut butter and this bar was definitely no exception! It tasted like a peanut butter cookie and even had little chunks of peanuts in it. I’m definitely buying more of these babies!
Protein Peanut Butter Cups: 9.5/10 I don’t like giving out 10’s, but this is the closest it gets. These flat out taste JUST like Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups except they’re a million times healthier. I wish I had more of these!! I could eat these every day.
Strawberry Cheesecake bar: 7.5/10 To be honest, I wasn’t expecting these to be good at all. Usually strawberry flavored things just aren’t my cup of tea. However, this flavor was better than I thought it would be! It had a subtle berry flavor that was reminiscent of strawberries and there was also a nice vanilla flavor to it. I liked this bar!
Vanilla Almond Crunch bar: 8/10 I LOVED this bar. It definitely tastes like vanilla and there’s even little pieces of almonds in the bar which gives it crunch, which I love! Definitely a yummy flavor!
White Chocolate Raspberry bar: 8/10 Mmmmm! Raspberry is one of my favorite fruits and white chocolate is just delicious, so obviously this flavor of Quest Bar would be great! Annnd it was. There were pieces of both raspberries and white chocolate chips in the bar, and it was overall a delicious flavor!
And that’s that! That is what I call the ultimate review of Quest Nutrition products My favorite bar was the peanut butter supreme! If I were to go buy 2 boxes of bars, I think I’d buy peanut butter supreme and apple pie. Mmmmmmm!
So there you have it! If you have any questions, ask! And of course, my taste buds aren’t the same as yours so you might not agree with me. That’s fine!
