Pumpkin everything seems to be the Fall trend over the last few years and Quest Nutrition has taken notice. I am a personal fan of any of the Quest bars that contain “chunks”- so the chocolate chip cookie dough (yum), white chocolate raspberry (nomnom) are among my faves. I actually eat the chunks and leave the rest of the bar to the birds- LOL!!!
Anyway enough on my bizarre eating habits… the pumpkin pie bars. Quest released them at the end of September 2015 and I just HAD to get my hands on them. Rumor had it they were unlike any bar before- dun dun duuuuuuuun.
(For those who have never had a Quest bar-They are a gluten free, low net carb, high fiber protein bar. They have about a dozen flavors and you are bound to find one you like.)
Thanks to Jarrod and Annelise from Southern Muscle Sport Nutrition, I got a whole box- Wahhhooooo! Let the reviewing begin…
So on first appearance I was a bit shocked because the bar was actually coated, imagine when something is yogurt covered. It was a bright orange with rough mounds on top. I would later find out that those mounds were delicious crunchy goodness.
The bar itself is just like any of the other plain quest bars. The overall flavor and texture were pretty good but they don’t compare to my bars with the chunks- all time favorite!!!
The best way to eat one in my opinion is 10-15 seconds in the microwave… warm and soft goodness.
The macros on these are a bit higher than the other flavor options I believe and I think it has something to do with the outer coating. Serving: 1 Bar, Calories: 220, Fat: 12g, Carbs: 19g (4 Net), Protein: 21g
