This is one of the newer flavors of Quest bars actually. It’s not really ‘new’ anymore, but this flavor and the chocolate mint were added to their line a year or two after all of their other original flavors. A very welcome addition it was as well, as in my opinion this is one of the top flavors. Read my Quest S’mores review to find out exactly why I think so…
Quest S’mores Review
The s’mores flavor is one the more eventful Quest additions; there are a variety of mix-ins and flavors going on in this bar. That doesn’t necessarily make it the best because the flavors aren’t as amazing as some other Quest bars, but it makes it stand out at least. The overall flavor of the bar doesn’t taste exactly like s’mores to me if I’m being perfectly honest, but it’s fairly close and whatever flavor it is, it’s pretty tasty. It’s like a mix of cinnamon/cocoa/milk chocolate/sea salt. It’s pretty unique, but for the most part it works.
The s’mores bar totals out to 190 calories consisting of the macros 20p/23c/8f in addition to 13g fiber. With as much mix-ins as this bar has, I was expecting 9-10g fat so the 8g is pretty nice. Overall though, this is pretty standard Quest bar macros so no complains at all in this regard.
I’m a big fan of s’mores in general, and I think most people are as it’s a pretty popular flavor and I’m sure was high in demand which is why they decided to release it in the first place. With that being said, I had really hopes for the bar and thought it could potentially top my other favorite flavors. While it is pretty delicious, I don’t think it was a good as it could have been though and ultimately didn’t live up to the extremely high expectations that I had set for it. That’s not to say the bar is bad or even average, I think I just put it on too high of a pedestal when first going into it and expected something that would be just as good if not even better than their cookie dough flavor, which unfortunately was not the case. It’s still a top 5-6 flavor for me, I just thought it would be more of a top 2-3.
+Pretty damn good taste
+Whey protein isolate
