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 Lemon Cream Pie Quest Bar tastes, and what difference the new fiber type has made.
The official description from Quest’s website:
Pie in a Quest bar isn’t pie in the sky. It’s a tasty, tangy reality with 20g of protein. Indulge in the amazing taste of lemon cream… Questified into #CheatClean goodness!
It’s an uncoated, lemon-flavored protein bar. This is what it looks like:
Taste & Texture
It’s sweet and lemony with a uniform, chewy consistency.
For me it’s definitely one of the least interesting choices, and I’d always opt for other flavors over this one. Considering some of the more elaborate Quest Bars with chocolate chunks, it’s as close as they get to boring. That said, it’s still actually pretty delicious and better than 99% of other protein bars out there.
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. The updated Lemon Cream Pie Quest Bar I had was noticeably softer, and the new fiber type seemed to be an improvement.
Serving size: 60 g
Fat: 6 g
Net carbohydrate: 4 g (less than 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.)
Lemon Cream Pie Quest Bar Rating: 7/10
This is a good flavor, but I always opt for other flavors when I buy Quest Bars. However, if you’re struggling for calories one a diet, in its favor is that this is one of their lowest energy-content offerings.
Thanks so much for reading. If this was useful, I have reviews of all Quest Bars here.
