THE NEW PUMPKIN SPICE QUEST BARS ARE SO BAD!!!

The reformulated Quest Bars are all pretty bad, but this one is terrible. Such a shame to see such a reputable company go downhill like this. Higher calories, higher fat, higher carbs, lower fiber, GMO corn fiber, artificial sweeteners AND palm oil. Don't waste your money.

    I tried microwaving half of it for the sake of tradition and I really liked it, but it was incredibly messy (considering it's coated in what I believe to be white chocolate) so I probably won't do it again nor suggest it.

    I don't rely on them to fill my nutritional goal by any means though, just a replacement for another snack I was about to have that had even more chemicals and sugar :3

    I tried a sample last week at a Vitamin Shoppe near me. I concur that it was quite sweet, even for me. I still don't think these bars are worth the money though.

    If you rely on companies to fill your daily nutritional goal, then you are a stupid human being.

    Plain and simple.

    What do you rely on to fill your daily nutritional goal?

    He must grow all of his own food. Although, I believe he works for a company that provides nutritional value, so...

    I like them too! Not bad. Not the best. Good for supplementing when needed.

    So far the only flavor from the new formula that I haven't liked was the Strawberry Cheesecake. But I was never a huge fan of that one.. just kind of tolerated it. I don't like pumpkin anything so I won't be trying the new one.

    Mainly a variety whole, minimally processed foods that are rich in nutrients which fit my macros.


    I was not intending to direct my initial comment toward OP. Apologies if that is how it was taken...

    It was merely a statement concerning those who rely on plastic wrapped foods and microwave meals every single day of their lives to meet their macros and calorie goal. I am a firm believer that this crowd needs to re-learn how to eat.

    Seems an odd time to voice such a concern since that has nothing to do with the topic of the thread *shrug*

    But if we're just throwing out random concerns, I'm a bit worried that the Cubs rotation (Arrieta aside) may not be strong enough to get past the Cardinals.

    Which flavors are "re-formulated" ?

    I'm curious about this, too. Lately, I haven't enjoyed my quest bars as much and thought maybe I was just tired of them, but have they actually changed them? What a shame!

    OP, I totally agree about the pumpkin flavor! My hopes were high, but Blechh and way too sweet. I am so glad I didn't buy the whole box.

    Your diary is locked. We can't see how to properly eat.
