Quest Bar: Maple Waffle

Where do I begin?! We’ve seen various breakfast protein bar flavours attempted, but many of them don’t taste anything like what we expected. Is this the case for Quest’s newest bar?

Maple Waffle in a bar?… Let’s just say I had many doubts about this bar until I unwrapped it and held the most satisfying bar I’ve ever seen! There is NO shortage of mix-ins throughout this bar! Here’s a closeup just to prove.

Look at that oozing maple syrup and those delicious waffle chunks!

This bar has the usual Quest base that is really dense but at the same time soft and chewy. Quest deserves an award for the best mix-ins in a protein bar with this one! The sticky syrup and chunks of waffles create a satisfying taste and texture that resembles its name perfectly. This bar has a rich and buttery flavour that is so accurate to that stack of waffles smothered in syrup you’re dreaming about. The maple flavour is noticeable, but not very strong.

The only thing I would change to this bar is a stronger maple flavour but all-in-all… Standing Ovation to Quest!

This bar has a variety of textures, with a soft and sweet chocolatey coating that provides a light snap. Then there are the protein “crunchies” layered throughout the coating that provide a satisfying “CRUNCH” with every bite. (Lives up to the name 😎). But we’re not finished there! The next layer is the base, which is dense and chewy, but surprisingly soft and has a spot on chocolate cake batter like flavour.

Although they are higher in sugar and carbs than “Healthy Ice Cream” these are much different in the way that they are perfect for almost everyone to eat because of their clean ingredients. One of the best benefits being they won’t cause any stomach or gas 💥 related issues like most products are known to cause!

The bold flavour that this pint packs makes you think you’re unwinding on a tropical island when you’re really just sitting on your computer watching youtube videos all day… It has a refreshing, creamy base that tastes of sweet, perfectly ripe bananas.

Meatbar: Original Flavour

Looking for a change from your typical sweet, high carbohydrate, protein bar? Here you go… Meatbar is a 90 Calorie Grass-fed beef bar that comes packed with both protein and flavour!

This bar has some of the best macros of protein bars on the market without sacrificing quality, flavour or texture!

Macros: 90 Cal | 12P/1C/4F | 0g Sugar | 1g Net Carbs |

meatbar

At first it looks like a dense, chewy log of meat, but after one bite your teeth will sink into this bar with ease. Their is a light snap provided by the outside of the bar. The inside is super moist and tender which makes it far superior from the usual jerky or meat stick.

The beef taste is perfectly complimented by a balanced amount of saltiness without being overwhelming. They also make 2 other flavour, Sweet and Savoury, and Sriracha for those who want a fiery kick 🔥.

The best part… Unlike most meat snacks you will not be left with those everlasting jaw cramps or aching teeth after you’re finished with this bar! 😂

Quest Tortilla Chips: Nacho Cheese

We can all agree there’s not much better than a fresh bag of Doritos… Trying to quietly open up the world’s loudest bag, to be welcomed by that satisfying aroma of artificial cheese.😍

Well fitness peeps, Quest has managed to create a macro-friendly tortilla chip that is available in a Nacho Cheese and Ranch flavour.

My first impression of these is that they have accurate Nacho Cheese (Doritos) flavour with no funky aftertaste whatsoever! From the second it hits your tongue until the last crumb in the bag there is a strong cheese taste. 

The texture is very impressive, especially considering the full bag is only 4g Net Carbs. Although it is lighter than a traditional tortilla chip, they still have a nice crunch and hold up very well.

With such low carbs it means these are Keto-Friendly and you can indulge in some not-so-naughty chips that packs a naughty taste.

In conclusion these are fantastic and the only improvement I would like to see on these is a more dense texture that would provide a more satisfying crunch.
