Protein bars are excellent ways to fill a stomach and fulfill the body’s energy needs when leading a very active life. A good protein bars needs a varied nutritional profile. Also, the taste matters greatly and many can confirm it – it’s such a letdown when finding that most protein bars on the market taste so boring. Quest Nutrition managed to surprise everyone with their innovation: the new Questbar.
Questbar protein bar with Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough flavor is not only rich in protein, but also has high fiber content. It is a gluten-free snack with only 3 g net carbs. The recipe is based on a protein blend of whey isolate and milk protein isolate, enriched with cocoa butter, unsweetened chocolate, prebiotic fiber from plant sources and almonds. It also contains stevia as sweetener, salt and sucralose, all in very small quantities, under 2%. It appears to be the best of the Quest bars.

The ‘Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough’ Flavor
There’s no way this wouldn’t get anyone’s attention. It is both an unusual and a delicious flavor, the chocolate chip cookie dough. If you feel intimidated by the ‘dough’ part, don’t worry – it’s all very pleasant. The sweetness comes from stevia mainly, while the cocoa butter gives it a great chewy texture.
Here’s one precious tip to enhance the taste and make it even more delicious: put it in the microwave (just for 30 seconds on the 400W setting). The heat releases the flavor better.
