    Next time I'll do the Chocolate Donut. Any thoughts on those? I think my two favorite flavors from Quest are Maple Waffle and Apple Pie.

    I like the chocolate donut flavor but feel their birthday cake is superior if you are going for one with a coating. My absolute favorite is still the blueberry muffin flavor. If you don't mind a little less protein their Hero bars are the tastiest IMO.

    Oh man, I haven't had a Quest bar in forever but I liked the blueberry muffin! Do they still make the PB & J? I LOVED that one. I can't do any flavor that involves chocolate. Bad things happen. :#

    I'm working my way through the Built Bars flavors.
    So far I LOVE mint brownie and coconut.
    Double chocolate mousse is good, but not great.
    I love them frozen - I love how rich and chewy they are.
    I got ANOTHER email after my first order asking how I liked them and if I had any questions. Again I mentioned I'd love to try lemon and blueberry cheesecake without buying a huge box, but I got the generic response again that they are available in 18 bar box if I want to get them (well not blueberry cheesecake as they are sold out now).
    So bars 10/10 and customer service 5/10.

    I don't think they make the PB&J anymore (haven't seen it in the store and it isn't listed on their website)... I never tried that one so I guess I missed out! :smile:

    So an update on my Built Bar fiasco; I indeed got the right box, a Built BURNER mixed box, this morning! The texture and taste are exactly the same as regular Built bars. I tried the Piña Colada Built Burner bar and it tasted pretty good. I could smell it immediately upon opening the package and it was nice. I can't speak for the added ingredients yet. It claims it will reduce appetite but I'm ravenous from my run and deficit yesterday. As for burning more calories and increasing fat loss, meh. I didn't buy them for the claims because it's all about buzzwords; I bought them because they had different flavors from the regular bars.

    I tried the Mango built bar a few days ago and that wasn't bad either. I have to give them credit in that the texture of the newer flavors seem to be a bit softer on the inside and not as chewy. I'm hoping that's not just due to the weather. Unlike many others who eat them, I don't think putting them in the fridge makes them better and the freezer just makes them inedible to me because they're so firm.

    Would I get the mango flavor if it became permanent? No. As for the Burner bars, I'll decide once I try the other five flavors.

    New Enlightened keto collection. Bitter that there aren’t any new flavors... just keto versions of what they already had 🙃539b6orcskkh.jpeg

    I finally found the Loaded Taco Quest Chips! They're so tasty! Kinda like a lighter, less salty version of taco Doritos. They were a nice addition to my Mexican-inspired wrap. Btw, GNC had a buy 5 snacks, get one free promo for those who are interested. I wanted to try a bunch of new things anyway, so I bit the bullet. I got the loaded taco quest, a bag of the ranch ones, a few Quest bars: pumpkin pie (!!!), rocky road, chocolate donut, and a can of Alaninu energy in Rainbow Candy. I actually love the two flavors of this energy drink I've tried and will definitely buy again.

    I looked at their nutrition information online and - yikes!

    Definitely NOT low calorie...

    The red velvet keto has 720 calories per a pint compared to 280 in the regular. Looks to be similar for the other flavors as well. My only interest in Enlightened, Halo Top, et al., is that they have low calories. Obviously these are not for me!

    Yikes! I mean, there is definitely a market for keto ice cream... but a lot of people on keto were already having Enlightened... IDK, I feel like it was kind of a confusing use of resources.

    Even on keto (hypothetically) a person can't eat all the calories--it would take keto folks in very special situations to spend 720 calories on a single item, just sayin'...

    I was surprised by the calories too, Peanut Butter Fudge is 190 a serving and I never eat just 1 serving so I'll pass.

    I know, I don't think it's the intention to eat the entire pint.

    In other light ice cream news...

    I HAVE to try these. Yum.

    I knew that the Enlightened Keto was going to be high calorie since they put 1G net carbs per serving as the focal point instead of the calories like their usual pints but 720 is just YIKES. I'm not sure what they were thinking and I feel like the people who eat it will most likely fall into one of three groups.

    Group 1 will just have one serving at a time.
    Group 2 have high TDEEs and can actually eat it in one sitting.
    Group 3 erroneously assumes calories "don't matter" on keto, will eat copious amounts of this, not lose weight, and wonder why.

    I feel like the Enlightened keto line will flop but people are surprising.

    Haha I feel like Group 3 is the majority of people on keto :D (no shade) ... also 720 calories per pint is less than some competitors like Mammoth Creamery, which as 1,000. Or Killer Whey has bout ~700...

    It's funny you guys brought up the Quest bars because I just had one today after almost a year without them. They were something I consumed regularly when I had more calories to play with, but I haven't been able to have them and eat the more low calorie Built Bar instead. I was craving a more substantial protein bar today, though (nothing wrong with Built. I love them but they don't fill me up and are more of a candy bar replacement for me), so I exercised a little extra today so I could treat myself to one. I saw Chocolate Hazelnut and decided to splurge on a box. They're not what I expected but they're not bad. I wanted more of a Nutella taste, but they're more chocolatey and nutty. Next time I'll do the Chocolate Donut. Any thoughts on those? I think my two favorite flavors from Quest are Maple Waffle and Apple Pie.

    I thought the outside of the Chocolate Donut bar tasted like the coating on the Hostess Chocolate Donettes.

    Quest's Blueberry Muffin is pretty good. In my top 10 for sure. If you want more of a "nutella flavor" the Rocky Road is probably closer than chocolate hazelnut. I liked Apple Pie too, but they discontinued it... sadly. i also miss their Lemon Pie and Banana Nut!

    I always thought their Lemon bar tasted like the Pledge furniture polish (not that I ever tried that haha).
