New Things Monday

I like to try new things and give my opinion on how I liked the product.  I do not get paid from anything I talk about.  This is just my opinion.   :)

Today, I am featuring Quest Nutrition.  I lost 73 pounds on Medifast and I am maintaining my weight.  Medifast taught me how to read labels and what foods are best to eat as snacks.  It's important to watch sugars.  You shouldn't eat any kind of snack with more than 6g of sugars.  When you start looking at labels you will see just how much sugars etc are in the packaged foods we eat. I love Nature Valley bars but they have 12 grams of sugar.  No thanks!!  Not worth it.  Anyways, I needed something I could do as a quick go to protein.  That's why I chose Quest Bars.

I went to GNC (I got harassed by an employee trying to shove GNC products down my throat.  I get that they want to tell me about their product but I knew what I wanted and I didn't want anything else.  Leave me alone).  

I purchased 4 different quest bars.  They were buy 3 get 1 free.

Cookies and Cream- OMG MY FAVORITE BY FAR.  Sooooo good.  :)  I also got my traffic girl at work hooked on this one.  I told her about it and she picked some up and now her whole family loves them.  It's really like eating a cookies and cream cookie.  Now my BFF tried it and she did not like it.  She felt it tasted fake to her.

Double Chocolate Chunk-  It was okay.  I could take it or leave it.

Chocolate Brownie-  It was okay.  I could take it or leave it.

Chocolate Peanut Butter- I didn't like this one at all.

The other day, I ordered some more bars through the Quest Nutrition website.  I found a coupon code online and got FREE shipping on my purchase.

I bought a box of 12 of the cookies & cream bars and 2 separate bars to try.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough-  My first bite, I felt like I was eating cookie dough and then it turned to blah.  I still ate it but I'm being honest and I didn't not like it by the 3rd bite.  It made me want to whip up some real cookie dough and eat that instead.  LOL

Smores-  I love this one!  It's really good.  I let my husband taste it and his first words were "It tastes like a hotel room".  Ummmm what?  He said "You know when you first walk in a hotel room and there's that distinct smell, the bar has that essence".  LOL  Is that a good thing or bad?  I don't know.  But these bars are delish!

I might have a little obsession for the Cookies and Cream.  Nate had one and he loved it too.  He said one bar is very satisfying.  Now I gotta keep him out of my stash of bars.  Or maybe I should order more so we have enough to share.  :)
