I couldn’t think of a better way to start our week with Marvelous Monday and a giveaway!
Today, I’ll be reviewing 13 different products from Quest Nutrition and launching my giveaway for a box of their protein bars!
I hope you’re excited because I’m absolutely thrilled to be hosting a giveaway for Quest Nutrition!
Despite all of the great reviews I’ve heard about them, I hadn’t tried one of their bars until they sent me a huge package to review in the mail. Now, I am proud to say that I am a self-proclain Quest Bar addict! Seriously, these are the best protein bars I’ve ever tried and I love having them in my purse for when I’m on the go!
I tested 12 different flavours of their protein bars as well as their protein peanut butter cups! I’ve reviewed each flavour and rank ordered them from my favourite to least favourite below. Please enjoy my review and don’t forget to enter the giveaway below!
Vanilla Almond Crunch
This was the very first Quest bar flavour I sunk my teeth into. I didn’t want anything fancy, something simple. But, this bar is no where near boring. It tastes like vanilla ice cream with chunks of almonds in it. Slightly sweet for my tastebuds, but I still really enjoyed it.
The second bar I tested out was Coconut Cashew as per Wendy’s recommendation. It’s her favourite flavour, so I was sure I would love it, too! This bar tastes ultra creamy and makes you say “OMG this is good!” At least it had that affect on me You could taste both coconut and cashew flavours! It was amazing.
Mixed Berry Bliss
Mixed Berry Bliss reminded me of a soft and chewy trail mix bar. The most distinct flavour to me was the freeze dried blueberries, but there were also wonderful strawberry flavours, too. I loved this bar as it wasn’t too sweet and very blueberry-ish!
Lemon Cream Pie
I was hoping this bar would be one of my favourites, but I was let down. I love a tart yet slightly sweet lemon poppyseed muffin, but this was nothing I had expected it to be. It definitely wasn’t lemony enough for me, which is why it’s one of my least favourites.
This flavour blew me away! I fell in love with it instantly! It reminded me a lot of a Strawberry Nutri Grain Cereal Bar. This bar was just sweet enough for me and I loved the crunchy almonds scattered throughout!
I was really excited to try this bar as it is my girl’s absolute favourite, but, sadly, I was not a fan of this one at all! I didn’t like the texture and, personally, I don’t think it tasted like a cinnamon bun at all. To me it tasted more like toffee, but that’s just my opinion. This was my least favourite bar of them all.
Chocolate Peanut Butter
Who knew I’d love this one so much!? I loved the soft brownie texture and the chunks of peanuts throughout were to die for! I took my time to savour this bar that is for sure! It reminded me of a Two Bite Brownie spiked with peanuts and I loved every bite!
Since I loved the Chocolate Peanut Butter flavour so much, I thought I’d be head over heels for this flavour! It was good, but not as good as the version with peanuts. The texture was still very fudgey and brownie-like, but the chocolate flavour was just ok.
Peanut Butter Supreme
I must be a bigger peanut butter lover than I originally thought! I honestly didn’t want this bar to end! I will definitely be ordering more of this flavour! It tasted perfectly peanutty and the texture was amazing! I love how these bars actually have bits of nuts scattered throughout! My mouth is watering just thinking of this flavour…
I really enjoyed this flavour! It wasn’t fake. The apple flavour was spot on and the added almond pieces were a nice touch. I bet this bar would be even more amazing if heated in the microwave for a few seconds!
Peanut Butter & Jelly
This flavour was absolutely delicious! It took two of my favourite flavours, Peanut Butter Supreme and Strawberry Cheesecake, and smacked them together for an out of this world combo! As many others, I didn’t want this bar to end.
Banana Nut Muffin
I saved this flavour for last because I thought it would be my favourite out of all 12 flavours and it definitely didn’t let me down! It was just like I imagined, a perfect banana flavour with crunchy
Protein Peanut Butter Cups
Like I said, I definitely didn’t realize how much I love peanut butter until trying these Quest Nutrition products! I expected these peanut butter cups to taste fake, but I was 100% wrong! These little protein packed treats were unbelievably delicious! My boyfriend and I devoured these peanut butter cups one evening and cannot stop raving about them. I am so thankful that I have more on their way to me!
