For those that aren’t already familiar with Quest Bars:
Quest Bars are my go-to protein bar. They are one of the few “true” protein bars out there. They’re much more nutritious than your typical store-bought protein bar (more focused on good ingredients, less focus on making them taste like Snickers with all kinds of preservatives) while at the same time still tasting pretty good. The protein/calorie ratio is high compared to most bars, and you’re not getting as much junk with it. These also fill me up more than most protein bars, despite usually being fewer calories.

For those already familiar with Quest Bars:
Just comparing flavor/consistency, the Vanilla Almond Crunch is one of my favorites (and I’ve tried all the Quest Bars). It’s a fairly mild flavor so unlikely to upset you, and there are little slices of Almond in it. Consistency is about on par with the Cinnamon Roll ones, smooth and medium hard. Not rough/hard like the Chocolate brownie or soft like the Apple Pie.

I typically eat an Apple Pie or Mixed Berry bar in the morning, and Vanilla Almond Crunch or Peanut Butter in the afternoon.

For those worried about blood sugar:
Beware that among the 10 flavors of Quest bars there are actually two separate lines. One line contains sucralose and the other is more natural and does not. The lines are broken down by flavors…

Contain Sucralose:
Chocolate Brownie
Apple Pie
Mixed Berry Bliss
Vanilla Almond Crunch
Peanut Butter Supreme

Natural (no Sucralose):
Cinnamon Roll
Strawberry Cheesecake
Lemon Cream Pie
Chocolate Peanut Butter
Coconut Cashew

Notice that the Vanilla Almond Crunch is in the line containing sucralose, so you will want to avoid this one if you are diabetic and get one of the flavors from that second list.
