    How much did I hate these bars? I threw the entire order away (minus the half of one that I ate). I didn't rate them "1" because I have actually tasted worse protein bars, but these....were pretty darn bad. I can't for the life of me understand how they got some good reviews. Just opening the package produces that powerful, nasty "protein" smell, and with even the smallest bite, the "protein" taste is front and center. It killed me to throw them away, but I knew I was never going to eat them. Blech.

    I have tried two different favors of Quest bars. Both tasted very sweet but otherwise are good. My problem is with blood sugars. I ate one bar on Weds. and the other on Thurs. Both days I ate these bars 3 hours after lunch. I checked my blood sugar before eating each bar and 1 hour after. My starting BS was in the low 90's and 1 hour later they were 147 & 153. I only ate these bars and nothing else at the time. If the carbs listed on the products are REAL what caused these BS spikes? If you are diabetic beware of these.

    I was very disappointed in these bars. They were recommended by a nutritionist, but they are the worst-tasting bars I have tried. They are very tough, hard, gritty, and chewy. I understand that they may be "healthier" than some other options, and I like the higher amount of protein compared to some bars, but the taste is not worth 200+ calories. I also tried to heat one up to see if it would help, and it turned into a mishapen, gross lump. I have had some great protein bars, and I expected these to be good based on the reviews, but I will not purchase again.

    I am so disappointed in the Quest bars. To be safe I started with only 3 flavors of bars, Peanut Butter & Jelly, Vanilla Almond Crunch and Peanut Butter Supreme. I really didn't care for them. I eat mostly low carb so I am used to things tasting a bit weird. I know that your taste buds sort of have to change in a way.The texture wasn't great, but that can be dealt with. Still I just did not care for any of these 3 flavors. I don't think I will try any more either. Darn, because I really wanted to like them!!

    Wow. I read the reviews, and thought this would be an excellent product. What a disappointment. I ordered a box of 12 chocolate brownies, and I'm only eating them because I'm too cheap to throw away 2.00/each bars. The texture is like eating a very stale...gosh, I don't know...Tootsie roll? Reviewers have said it's like a vending machine brownie. I disagree. A vending machine brownie would be a treat compared to this thing. Also, reviewers have suggested microwaving it to soften it up a bit...really? That wasn't the answer either, IMHO. It's certainly got a chocolately taste, which is its only redeeming quality. Oh, and the fact that because it doesn't have sugar alcohol it doesn't offer mad gas as a parting gift.

    Pro: Exactly the nutrient profile I was looking for. Very filling. Option to buy only one meant I didn't regret it too badly.

    Con: Tasted horrible. Grease came of the bar onto my napkin. Everything about the experience of eating this bar was unpleasant... I only made it through half and don't know if I can stomach the rest.
