Hello! Have you seen the new protein bar by Quest Nutrition? It’s called the Quest Hero Protein Bar and comes in three flavors. I’ve seen it on Instagram and have been wondering about them so I finally hit up GNC to get one of each.
Quest Hero Protein Bar:
Comes in 3 flavors:
They cost about $2.50 to $3.50 each.
The nutrition stats are similar to the original Quest bars, including my favorite Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough.
It is made of a sugar replacement called allulose, that doesn’t have calories. I haven’t done a lot of research on this sweetener so I don’t know the details about it but I didn’t notice any aftertaste.
I still 100% prefer the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough protein bar. They seem like a treat.
They both have similar calories, protein and fiber.
General thoughts – The Quest Hero Bars are not as good as the original Quest Protein bars. They’re less sweet and the coating doesn’t add anything. I would skip this and stick with the original next time. The inside was slightly dry and similar to the cereal bars (which I like). They’re a good size protein bar, but that is the only thing I liked about them.
I tried all three flavors that were available at GNC. If I had to pick a favorite I’d go with chocolate, but I would pick another bar over these. I think the vanilla frosted bars are fairly similar in taste / sweetness.
I still LOVE their Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and other bars though. So, I’m still a big fan of their other protein bars. But when it comes to the Hero Bars – I say save your money for gummy bears or egg whites or whatever else you already know you like.
