I love Quest Bars. I thought the chocolate chip cookie dough was my fave but white chocolate raspberry and apple pie have become my favorite. OK, I'll be honest, I like them all!!

Favorite: chocolate chip cookie dough.
Notable mentions: apple pie, mixed berry bliss, PB & J, cinnamon roll.
Want to try: vanilla almond crunch, white chocolate raspberry, coconut cashew.

I've only had one that I didn't care for; the chocolate brownie one was tough to get down. I bought it on two separate occasions because I was willing to believe it would be better microwaved.

It was not. :P

Had my first white chocolate raspberry Quest bar tonight! Delicious! Though I'm not sure anything beats the chocolate chip cookie dough. Other favs are the coconut cashew, banana nut muffin, and apple pie. Try changing it up by softening cccd or apple pie in the microwave, then rolling it out to thickness (or thinness) of pie crust, bake at 350 for 4 minutes, awesomeheart! No need to search for low calorie cookie recipes any more when there's Quest bars in my pantry! Also great in the microwave for 15 seconds; they just don't seem to last as long.


I'm curious about your method! What's the consistency of this like after it's done baking? Also do you use a baking sheet with parchment paper or cooking spray? I have to imagine it would stick like nobody's business if you didn't.

Yeah I'm curious how people microwave them at all. Mine always end up like a sticky messy mess when I do it.

I've gone back to quest bars though, couldn't find anything else that kept me as full for the same nutrition.

It depends on what state the bar is in. If the bar has been out of the fridge I nuke it for like 10-12 secs and it's perfect. If from the fridge, I nuke it for like 20 secs. Either way, adjust the timing so it doesn't wind up a sticky mess, but even then I still love them.

Just microwaved a choc chip cookie dough Quest bar... The ensuing mouthgasm was only matched by my sheer frustration of not having done this sooner!


Ok officially have to try microwaving it now....

I am literally chewing on a cookie dough quest bar right now that I microwaved for 8 seconds and it's like eating a warm chocolate chip cookie... just an insane improvement on texture!

Must try warming them... they barely make it out of the wrapper for me! Mmmmm... cinnamon bun - my fave!

I have never tried them and now I want to. What other brands have you tried that are good? I've only tried a couple Cliff bars and Luna bars. I need to get ones that are not all full of sugar and that are better for you

I usually microwave them and its awesome. Yesterday I put one in the oven and it was an epic failure. Burnt city!!!

I don't know if I got a bad/expired batch but I got some of the chocolate brownie flavored ones from GNC. They were hard as rocks and even when I heated them up to soften, they had a weird chemical butter taste that was pretty gross. I was really hoping to like these bars but I couldn't eat more than a couple bites before tossing.....and I am not very picky.

Anyone else find the chocolate brownie flavor to be gross? Or Quest bars from GNC? I really want to like these bars!

Chocolate chip cookie dough is my favorite. I buy 2 boxes at a time. Banana Nut is second because it's softer than the other bars.

Stay away from the Quest peanut butter cups. They taste more like a sand dollar than a peanut butter cup!

I've never tried heating them up in the microwave. I usually have one at lunch and it has been in my purse so the heat has warmed it up enough and they are soft in texture. I read somewhere where Quest had been working on making their bars softer in texture and I have really noticed lately!

Cliff bars are jammed with sugar. Quest bars are the way to go.

My fav is the peanut butter supreme one, sooo good.

Used to like the brownie flavor now I find the luo han guo taste a bit too strong.

Never liked the lemon cream pie flavor..

Really wanna try the Cookie Dough flavor but they don't sell that here..


Ordered some cookie dough flavor, can't wait to try it! :D

You don't like the PB cups? Shame, I love them. I rotate between the CCCD, PB&J, and the PB cups.

YES! Choc brownie and choc chip cookie dough. I do them in the oven for 10 mins at 180deg (centigrade) (350F). IHerb are a great site to buy them from too :)

I think you probably got some that were expired. I haven't had this problem yet and I always order straight from the Quest website.

OMG try baking it if you haven't already! It will make you feel like your in heaven!!! Just bake
the bar at 350-400 degrees for 5-10 minutes , just watch it because they can burn easily! LOL
BAKE it! I highly recommend it. Its awesome!!!!

2nd attempt to bake my Chocolate chip cookie dough at 350 for 10 min was extremely successful. Wow, mind = blown. The only thing is now when I'm at work where the hell am I going to find an oven, it has ruined me for future microwaving.
