Good, clean protein!
on 3 July 2014
This bar is very good for it's purpose!
Let's be honest, no protein bar is ever going to make up for the lack of chocolate in your gym diet, nor will they ever come close in taste or texture to the real deal! However, whilst some may buy protein bars partly to try and reduce cravings for bad food, some buy them for the good old fashioned nutritional value.
If you're in the latter group, then I've got some good news for you! Ditch whatever bar you're currently using and switch to this. I've tried a few protein bars in my lifetime and they were all packed with horrible rubbish and chemical names that none but scientists understand, and to be quite frank they all over promised and under delivered on taste, leaving you with a bad, fake, after taste.
These quest bars are a tad different. For starters, all of the ingredients are natural, the bars don't look or smell chemically in appearance, and they taste damn good for a protein bar. They have 20g of protein per bar, 170 calories which is around half the calories of most protein bars, and they contain a whopping 68% of your dietary fibre because they aren't made with fake cack! The bars are composed largely of a pre-biotic fibre derived from plants which, I imagine, is also a lot healthier for your digestive system than most bars.
On the whole I'd recommend them, although they don't quite match up to the real enjoyment of launching your face into a cinnamon roll, they will provide more nutritional value and potential add gains to you workout. They also do not taste over powering and come close to the taste that they shot for. I bought mine to use after a gym workout, in the morning, before I can get to breakfast as I needed something instant. These should do the trick nicely.
