So I’ve recently been getting back into my Total Gym workout routine and thought I would go ahead and get back on some protein supplements. I personally love blueberry muffins, so when I saw the Quest Nutrition Blueberry Muffin Protein Bar on the shelf at my local Walmart, I thought I’d give it a shot. Here is what I experienced.
First of all, a little bit of information here before I start, for all of you interested parties. Each individual par has 21g protein, 5g net carbs, 190 calories, is gluten free and soy free. Ok, enough with that. On to the review!
So first off, the texture here is what you expect from any typical protein bar. (A lot like chewy peanut butter bars, if you’ve ever had those) Nothing here is nutty or ads anything rough to the texture.
The flavor I will admit is a little bit chalky, but not any more than your typical protein bar. The blueberry flavor is there, however I think it was leaning a little bit too hard on the artificial flavor side. I think a more accurate description of the flavor would be a bran blueberry muffin mixed with pancake mix. Yeah, that pretty much nails it I think.
The Bottom Line
Basically, I was not really wowed by the flavor here, but on the other hand it wasn’t really that bad either. I would say this is just your typical tasting, middle of the road protein bar to be quite honest. If your just looking for the protein though, yeah, this will get you what you need quickly. Just don’t expect to be blown away by the flavor.
