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!



MusclePharm Combat Crunch: Chocolate Cake

Craving a sweet, dessert like snack? Well now you can have your cake and eat it too with MusclePharm’s Combat Crunch Chocolate Cake🎂 Flavour! If you aren’t a fan of those tan colored, brick shaped bars that taste about the same as they look, then give these a try.

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.

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 |


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 Bar: Birthday Cake

 It’s not even my birthday but I will gladly devour one of these Birthday Cake Quest Bars! This bar is much different from the traditional Quest Bar texture we’re used to. In comparison to the usual dense, chewy, beige bar, this creation has a white coating and a soft cake like base. 🎂

Macros: 180 Cal | 21P/25C/5F | <1g Sugar | 5g Net Carbs |


The bar consists of a chewy but melt-in-your-mouth cake-like base consistency. While the white coating has a surprisingly soft, similar to the taste and texture of frosting. Although the flavour is simply vanilla cake, it packs a PUNCH! It has an extremely sweet flavour which goes hand in hand with it’s whimsical looks. This absolutely crushes the “Birthday Cake” profile and is worth a try for any lovers of all things sweet… Plus, who doesn’t like sprinkles? 🎉
