Quest Nutrition has always been one of my favorite supplement brands. They are always coming out with innovative ways to stay on track nutritionally for those of us who seem to always be “on-the-go”. I used to think I was busy and was going from point A to point B in a mad hustle everyday, but then I became a mom and BAM…I was so wrong about what true “busy” was.
If you know me personally, you know that I never settle down (like ever). I am always hustling through something! Whether its getting through the work week, prepping meals, getting in a workout, taking care of Noelia, or home renovations…the grind never stops! That is just the way I am (Hubby, too) we always stay busy!
Today’s post is a product review of Quest’s new Hero Bars and let me just say….I LOVE THEM. They are so good and I love how different they are from their other protein bars that they are famous for. So click that “read more” and let’s get nerdy! 😉
Quest’s new Hero Bars are definitely worth trying. They come in 3 different flavors; blueberry cobbler, vanilla caramel, and chocolate caramel pecan. The consistency of the bars are different than Quest’s Protein bars found here. They have more of a candy bar consistency; they are thick and are filled with flavored fillings that truly hit that sweet spot (total sweet-tooth over here!). Quest is known for their amazing flavor options and these Hero Bars definitely do not disappoint.
Just when you think they couldn’t top their original protein bars, THEY DID.
What is so great about Quest’s Hero bars is that they are made with a sugar called *Allulose. Allulose has all the taste and texture as sugar but without all the negatives. Allulose occurs in small quantities in nature, in things like maple syrup, figs, and raisins. Allulose only contributes 0.4 Calories per gram instead of the 4.0 Calories per gram contributed by table sugar.
*Information on Allulose can be found on Quest’s website: questnutrition.com
When I look at a nutrition label, I always look at the basic macronutrients first; protein, fat and carbs. I then check for fiber. Personally, I rarely care about the sugar content in the bar. Sugar is a carb, so the total amount of carbs in the bar is truly all I care about. The only time I will care about the sugar content is if all your carbs are coming from sugar (i.e. 24g of sugar and 24g of carbs in one bar). I do not want all of my carbs coming from sugar, but if its way under the total amount of carbs then I am totally okay with that. Another reason why Quest protein bars and especially Quest Hero Bars are such a hit with me! Low added sugar and great *net carbs.
*Net carbs are the total carbs in something after fiber and sugar have been subtracted.
It is true what they say…if you fail to plan, you plan to fail. If you know you will be somewhere for a few hours and will need food, plan for it! Life gets busy and we are pulled in 1,000 different directions at times and sometimes prepping full meals just isn’t realistic. It is okay to make things simple by just grabbing a bar to eat on the go, why stress yourself out more than you have to? Whether it is going to work, the gym, or errands with the family, I always have some sort of food with me and 9/10 its protein bars by Quest. Their products have truly been a lifesaver for me on days I have to be somewhere last minute or when I am running those endless weekend errands (Mom life!). You can always find a Quest product with me, guaranteed!

I hope you all enjoyed this product review! I love supporting good, wholesome companies with strong missions, and Quest is one I will support until the end. With anything in life, enjoy your journey and always be #OnaQuest.
