OMG _ I love them and they're my lifesavers. I use the chocolate chocolate chunk ones as my treat food - and only eat a half bar at a time because they're dense in calories. I keep some in my car for emergency days I can't get to a healthy meal, and have a half a bar after a good workout, since eating high Protein within 30 minutes of strength training helps rebuild muscle I"m told. I order them online from different places (according to price) and often split two boxes with my daughter who's a personal trainer. The best part about them is that they're low carb and high protein--so good for us! And hey - I happen to think they taste great. Worth every penny.

The ones I've tried have been delicious. They're high in Protein, too so that is great. I agree with the above poster who said she eats half at a time. That's probably a good call post op. I'm not post op yet but I ate them on my supervised pre op diet.

Not too sweet but very flavorful. I tried cashew coconut and Peanut Butter. The cashew coconut had a very sticky consistency but it tasted great.

I love them.

I eat them all the time to get in my Protein.< /strong>

They help keep me on the straight and narrow.

I have tried almost everyone and have enjoyed them all except one.

They are also approved by my nutritionist so that's an added bonus to know.

Love em and use them all the time! Didn't early on, too calorie dense and didn't agree with me, but as I got closer to goal I started. I have half of one or a whole one almost daily!

Quest website sells a variety pack. GNC sells by the bar. They have a buy three get one free through the end of the month.

They aren't good for early on, but great for later.

I tried the Peanut Butter cups and didn't like em

I've gotten singles at HyVee. I think that might be a regional grocery store though so depending on where you're located, that might not help. Lol

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
