Quest Nutrition has been making good tasting protein bars with a great macro split for years. I feel in love with most of their flavors very quickly. This review of the Quest Maple Waffle protein bar most definitely brings me back to the great flavors that Quest bars have been known for.
The Perfect Macro Split
The fact of the matter is that Quest bars have a perfect macro split for me. There are around 20 grams of protein compared to around 20 grams of carbohydrates and around 5 grams of fat. I love that macro breakdown. I expect to get about 20 grams of protein for every 200 calories that I ingest and Quest bars check all of those boxes for me.
The Quest Flavor
I mentioned falling in love with the flavor of most Quest protein bars. But, I have to admit that my opinion has recently changed. In the last couple of years, the flavor profile of the bars have changed a little. Some of the bars are not nearly as tasty and some have become practically inedible. The reality is that the macro split was always so good that I kept eating them as I needed to. I eat for fuel and function and almost never for flavor hence why I eat bland foods quite often.
With the Quest Maple Waffle bar, that flavor popped in my mouth right away (literally). I was not expected an injection of maple syrup flavor in my first bite. The moistness of that bite was very interesting and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
