I have been adding a scoop of this powder to my coffee along with cream, but I found that I can skip the cream, the powder makes a good creamer for coffee. I also use it instead of coconut oil or butter to make a mug muffin, it works just fine. It does not have a coconut taste, just a nice creamy flavor. I also add it to plain greek yogurt along with a scoop of protein powder, it makes the yogurt more like a creamy pudding.I will continue to buy this as long as it is available.

These things are on par with a regular candy bar. Chocolate pecan reminds of turtles, possibly even better! Anyone who loves white chocolate would love the blueberry cobbler or vanilla caramel as well.
Tried all three flavors, blueberry, vanilla and chocolate (on the same day) and none of them disappoint. Did not get thrown out of ketosis, did not gain any weight. Been away from carbs for almost a year so the flavor was almost too sweet for me.
Love allulose in general. The only problem I have with these bars and with Allulose is it does not fill you up, so you are hungry soon after. Favorite flavor is Chocolate.

Love the Quest Hero bars. The texture and coating make you feel like you are "cheating" even though this product has a very low carb count. I don't eat bars like this every day but do appreciate having them when I am unable to eat a meal at home.
My favorite flavor is the chocolate pecan as it feels like I am eating a candy bar.
Tried these at my daughter's home. Tasted great. Liked the texture better than the protein bars. Was concerned about the blood sugar impact noted in an earlier review until I checked out alternative info at https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/allulose

Love it! I add a scoop or two of this to so many recipes to add in some extra healthy fats. I make my kids protein cakes (pancakes) each morning but I hate having macros that are lacking in fat so I add two scoops in with the batter and they can't tell the difference. I blend this in my coffee instead of coconut oil and it adds creaminess without the dreaded floating oily top. There is zero digestion issues that can sometimes go along with liquid MCT oils which is a HUGE plus in my books.
As of 5/1/18, these are amazing. I had the Sour Cream and Onion and the Cheddar and Sour Cream and both have a new texture. Quest has changed their formula, and this new version has a lighter, flakier texture than before. These are so much better than their old formula.

When they say "Improved" they really do mean it. I really loved real chips, especially Cheddar & Sour Cream Lays so when I first tried that flavor in these chips I was sorely disappointed! Then, I thought I'd try a different flavor so I bought the Sour Cream & Onion. Still did not like the slightly bitter aftertaste at the back of my tongue. When I saw "Improved" on the newer labels, I tried the Sour Cream & Onion again and was sooooo pleased, I bought the Cheddar & Sour Cream again. I can enjoy chips with my low carb sandwiches/wraps again! Believe me, these do not taste like the real thing...YOU CANNOT USE DIFFERENT INGREDIENTS AND EXPECT THEM TO TASTE THE SAME. They are a healthier alternative and they taste good...not the same but still good!

My 13 year-old son is on the modified atkins diet for seizures. He liked these chips as a way to satisfy his desire for something crispy and salty, but they were a splurge at 5 or 6 grams per bag when he only gets 20 per day. Christmas came early a few weeks ago when the shipment brought a package announcing a new recipe - now the BBQ are only 2 net carbs per bag, and he's thrilled! Thanks! Please keep trying to get the net carbs down!
These bars are amazing! I have been waiting for a truly low carb bar that wasn't filled with any sugar, sugar alcohols, evaporated cane juice, brown rice syrup or whatever you want to call it... it's all junk.
These bars clearly have out of this world ingredients and can be eaten without any guilt. I have had to be very strict on my diet so regular protein bars have been out for me.
I really like that they don't use any soy either which is something I know other bars use to save on costs.
These taste so good that the only complaint I have is that they can be hard to stop eating.
I will never run out of these and will keep my cupboards well stocked.
I tried all 5 of the flavors of these bars. Being a gastric bypass patient, I need protein sources low in sugar content to avoid the dreaded "dumping syndrome" and these bars fit the bill! I've tried the Atkins bars but the sugar alcohols in them do a number on my digestive system with some pretty foul results. These bars being a good protein source have very low sugar counts and most of the carbs are fiber sourced.
I will agree that 10-15 secs in the microwave wrapped in a paper towel is the best way to enjoy these. All were good out of the package but warmed a little, the consistency loosened a bit and they became, dare I say, dessert-like.
Compared to other bars out there, these seem to be the best low-carb option (and them tasting good is a big bonus).
Apple Pie - tastes like a Nutrigrain apple bar
Peanut Butter - almost tastes like Reese's peanut butter pie
Almond - tasted like candy...someone said Bit O Honey and that is fair
Chocolate - tasted like a vending machine brownie...not the best but not terrible either
Berry - this one was my least favorite...mainly because I don't dig strawberries and this had a bit of the strawberry flavor coming through but otherwise was decent.
One benefit I didn't get from these was with all that fiber, I was expecting a smooth movement but the protein counter balanced that and things were a bit rocky...
I have been ordering and loving Quest bars for several years now. My favorites are chocolate chip cookie dough, mint chip, s'mores and cookies & cream. I used to have one every morning for breakfast, but found that it did stall my weight loss efforts a bit, so now limit myself to 3 or 4 per week. If you are looking for a bar that is delicious, doesn't contain maltitol, and is quick and easy, I say give them a try. They have really helped me stay on a low carb diet. One tip, I always microwave mine for 15 seconds - think warm and gooey!! Yum!! I never tire of these. By the way, this is my first netrition review. I felt it was time for me to add some reviews as reading all of the reviews on here for products has been so helpful for me. Thank you, Netrition!!!

Quest bars are the best bars on the market! Since I've found Quest, I will never eat another nutrition bar. I eat one per day, whether it be from their original line or their natural line. My favorite flavors are Chocolate Brownie and Cinnamon Roll. All of their flavors taste great, but I am partial to these two. The taste isn't overpowering or too sweet. True, the original line contains Sucralose, but only a very little amount. I would highly recommend this bar to anyone is who is interested in a great tasting bar loaded with protein and tons of FIBER.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip is the best Quest cookie I have had so far. I'm not sure why but the texture of this one seems better. It's not as dry and crumbly. I'm not sure why it's different but I really like it and will likely stop buying the other flavors. Overall this is my favorite in terms of texture and taste.

I'm a Quest fan. Just wanted to put that out there. I don't love all their stuff, but they're my go-to for low carb in this junk food-filled world. I eat the chocolate chip protein cookie almost every day as a meal replacement so I know that's a winner, but Snickerdoodles have been my favorite cookie since childhood and when I heard Quest was doing a protein cookie version of that, I went on the hunt. Sadly, I can only find it online. Happily, ordering online is easy. Okay, enough with the prologue...
I like them. I don't LOVE them as much as the chocolate chips ones, but much more than the peanut butter ones. I'll continue ordering them because it's a nice switch-up in the daily routine. These are part of the new rotation now and thank you Quest for making that happen.

I really struggled to find a product that would meet my needs for low carb dieting. This is a great product. The taste is fantastic and the recipes are awesome! I whip it up in my blender and it comes out with this great froth and tastes just like a milkshake. I feel like I am cheating! Keep up the good work.

This has become my favorite protein shake. The flavor is amazing and the protein amount is very good for the amount of calories. The drink thickens to a real shake-like consistency when mixed. I have only tried the Cookies and Cream flavor; it is terrific so I havenít experimented with the other flavors.

Tried the Nacho Cheese. As other reviewers have stated they do taste like Doritos and are a great substitute. They are much thinner than Doritos and most of the time you only get 1 or 2 chips that are complete and not broken. You only get a handful size serving of chips and I always limit myself to only 1 bag at a time as these are very pricey. Even so I have sprinkled over keto chili or made my own nachos with cheese and jalapenos. What I do not understand though is why you cannot buy the bags in less than a case lot for the tortilla chips but they do offer that choice for the potato chip substitutes which also are good but have the texture of a cracker and not a chip. If nothing else how about a variety pack? Nacho/50% Ranch/50%. I would love to try the ranch but I do not want a whole case of it.
After people try these, Netrition.com will not be able to keep them in stock. They are that amazing. I've tried other highly rated products and not been impressed. I'm picky. I do my own cooking, but do look for quick snacks that taste good. Don't confuse these with Quest chips, which are not bad, but far from as good as these are. The nacho cheese arrived today and taste just like thin light nacho cheese doritos. I'm still pinching myself to make sure I'm not dreaming as I prepare to order 2 more boxes before they are gone. You heard it from me first. Enjoy!

I ordered the Nacho Cheese and Ranch flavors. The day they arrived, I tore into the Nacho Cheese's and was blown away by their awesomeness....left a glowing review.
Since then I've sampled the Ranch flavor as well...and like 'em even MORE! lol For some reason, there seem to be way more whole unbroken chips...and the flavor and texture combine for an even better chip.
You can't go wrong with either flavor. I have not tried the Chili Lime yet.
As I said in my other review, Quest Nutrition has nailed it with this product! I'll be ordering more...and more...and more...
