All Quest Bars are made of high quality protein and have plenty of fiber, but these days that’s not enough. Food tech has advanced to the point that a nutrition bar must also be delicious to be called the best. So in this review I’ll let you know how the Cinnamon Roll Quest Bar tastes, and what difference the new fiber type has made.
The official description from Quest’s website:
“You can practically smell the oven opening with every bite of the Cinnamon Roll Quest Bar! To make it an anytime treat that can’t be beat, it has 20g of protein at only 4g net carbs, so get ready to reach for another!”
It’s an uncoated, cinnamon-flavored protein bar. This is what it looks like:
Taste & Texture
It’s sweet, softly chewy, with a lovely strong cinnamon flavor. The texture is uniform throughout.
Whether you like this or not will basically depend on whether you like cinnamon. I consider the Cinnamon Roll Quest Bar a middle-of-the-pack offering, very nice, but not the best that Quest Nutrition does (still superior to 99% of other protein bars out there). In its favor is the fact that it’s one of the slightly lower calorie varieties (especially great for dieting).
As with all Quest Bars it’s great as it is, but it’s even more rich and dessert-like heated about 10 seconds in a microwave or baked a few minutes (which is even better because the outside goes crispy).
Corn Fiber Recipe Update
Quest Nutrition built their reputation with IMO (isomaltooligosaccharide) fiber as a main ingredient in their bars. They’ve since removed IMO from their line up entirely and now use corn fiber instead, claiming it makes a softer, longer-lasting product.
The IMO version could get quite tough towards the end of the use-by date. In the updated Cinnamon Roll Quest Bars I’ve had, the new fiber makes a huge difference and the bar seems far softer now.
Serving size: 60 g
Fat: 7 g
Net carbohydrate: 4 g (1 g sugar)
Fiber: 14 g
Protein: 20 g
(Weights of Quest Bars can vary quite a bit, leading to significantly different caloric content than stated on the label. I did a write-up here.)
Cinnamon Roll Quest Bar Rating: 7.5/10
This is a great flavor, and I buy it regularly.
Cheapest Places to Buy
Supplement shops are very expensive comparatively, so I always buy online.
I find Amazon consistently has the cheapest price now. If you’re in the UK you can buy at amazon.co.uk (about £19 for box of 12 at time of writing).
If you’re in America, you’re lucky—they cost way less for you guys. You can buy at Quest’s website ($24.99 for box of 12 at time of writing).
Actually, even if you’re in the UK you could do worse than ordering off the Quest website above. Their shipping is cheap and fast, and the price works out about the same, funnily enough. Cheaper if it goes straight through customs tax-free, which sometimes happens.
Thanks so much for reading. If you found this useful, I have reviews of all Quest Bars here.
