White Chocolate Raspberry Quest Bar Review (New Corn Fiber Type)

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 White Chocolate Raspberry Quest Bar tastes, and what difference the new fiber type has made.

White Chocolate Raspberry Quest Bar

Description

The official description from Quest’s website:

Indulge your tastebuds with REAL dried raspberries and protein-packed white chocolate in every bite of this irresistible Quest Bar! With 20g protein and 6g net carbs, it’s practically a dream come true.

It’s an uncoated protein bar with white chocolate chunks and raspberry bits interspersed. This is what it looks like:

Taste & Texture

It has a sweet, plain base. The white chocolate pieces are the highlight for me, and combine well with the little dried raspberry bits and chewy base to create a delicious product.

This Quest Bar is towards the top of the list of my preferred flavors, but perhaps not top-tier. That’s more a taste preference thing though, and less a reflection of the bar itself.

However, the White Chocolate Raspberry Quest Bar is still a genuine treat I’d go out of my way to eat, unlike older protein bars that did their best not to taste horrible.

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). This flavor is especially fantastic heated because the chocolate melts, which makes for even more gooey richness.

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.

In the White Chocolate Raspberry Quest bar, the new fiber type makes the bar noticeably softer than the old IMO version, which could get quite tough, especially towards the end of the use-by date.
