And so the time finally comes. The very last Quest flavor for me to review. Unfortunately… I saved my least anticipated flavor for last. I strongly dislike coconut as a flavoring, even more than lemon and banana. I’m also not the biggest fan of cashews… Yeah. I realize some people do like coconut and cashews though so take this review with a grain of salt if you do and bear in mind that I’m super biased when reviewing this flavor. Nevertheless, let’s see what the Quest Coconut Cashew bar is all about.
Quest Coconut Cashew Review
I didn’t hate this bar. Although I strongly dislike coconuts and somewhat cashews, I didn’t hate this bar. I didn’t particularly enjoy it either though. It was definitely my least favorite Quest bar, I will say. If you like coconuts, that flavor is clearly there so you’ll probably like it in that case. There are little dried coconut pieces that elevate the coconut flavor to my dismay, but maybe to your satisfaction. The tiny cashews didn’t affect the flavor too much, as I mainly tasted the presence of coconut more than anything.
The Quest Coconut Cashew bar totals out to 190 calories consisting of the macros 20p/22c/8f in addition to 14g fiber. As far as Quest flavors go, pretty average. As far as all protein bars in general go, pretty damn solid.
It should really come as no surprise, but the only reason why I even tried the Quest Coconut Cashew flavor in the first place was for the sole purpose of reviewing it for this website. Never under any circumstance would I normally pick this bar amongst all the other delicious offerings that Quest has in store. As previously stated though, I’m not a fan at all of coconut or cashews so I realize I am very biased. If you really enjoy those two flavors, or at least coconut, then you’ll probably enjoy this bar to some degree. The coconut flavor is definitely executed well so it can’t be knocked for that. Still though even if you do enjoy coconuts, I’d be pretty hard pressed to believe that someone could prefer this one over some of the more popular Quest flavors like cookie dough, cookies and cream, white chocolate raspberry, double chocolate chunk, etc.
+Whey protein isolate
+Accurate coconut flavor if that’s your thing
-My least favorite Quest flavor for sure
Recommended: No, but maybe if you love coconuts then give it a shot
Overall Rating: C+
