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 Peanut Butter Supreme Quest Bar tastes, and what difference the new fiber type has made.
The official description from Quest’s website:
This is where it all started! you’ll go nuts for the amazing peanut butter taste in one of our very first Quest Bars. With 20g of protein and 5g net carbs, the only thing missing is the ballpark.
It’s an uncoated, lemon-flavored protein bar. This is what it looks like:
Taste & Texture
It’s sweet with a good strength of peanut flavor, and softly chewy. The consistency is nicely varied with peanut bits.
This is a really nice Quest Bar, but I have to say I normally opt for the chocolate chip varieties over it. That’s because it’s one of the slightly higher calorie offerings Quest do, and it seems like a better taste-investment (so to speak) to have chocolate included. Funny, because it’s only a matter of about 20 Calories, but there you go.
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 Peanut Butter Supreme Quest Bar I had was noticeably softer, and the new fiber type seems to be a big improvement texture-wise.

(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.)
Peanut Butter Supreme Quest Bar Rating: 8/10
This is a good flavor. As mentioned, I normally go for the chocolate chip varieties over this one, but I like this for a change on occasion.
Thanks so much for reading. If this was useful, I have reviews of all Quest Bars here.
