Quest Nutrition Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

Quest Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

I don’t know about you but back when I was a kid sneaking a spoonful of the cookie dough was almost better than the cookie itself; although it was always followed by the Motherly scolding ‘Don’t eat too much of that the eggs aren’t cooked!’ Well it looks as if the people over at Quest Nutrition shared the similar tastes and have developed potentially their best bar to date!

Now if you have yet to take the plunge and grab yourself a box of these bars this may just be the one to do it with. Now I thought they couldn’t get any better than the Chocolate Brownie but from early reports these are phenomenal!

Now what makes Quest Bars SO different then all those other Protein Bars?

Well for one thing they use only High Quality Whey Protein Isolate. But what is very interesting is the carb source, or lack thereof. Now most bars use a ‘Sugar Alcohol’ which can wreak havoc on your digestive system & cause lots of discomfort! (TRUST ME) But Quest have utilized Erythritol which is an expensive alternative to sugar alcohols and similar sweeteners.

Now it appears that Erythritol is a bit less sweet then Sugar, but with added stevia & sucralose the combination works pretty synergistically! The magic behind Erthritol is that studies in Humans show that when ingested 90% of it is un-degraded and excreted through urine, with little caloric value [1] Meaning that your getting a great tasting dose of protein with limited usable carbohydrates.
