I buy a box every two weeks from GNC, but I'm more than happy to get a couple for free. Thanks for sharing this!

Thanks, joatsaint, just ordered mine. Never heard of them until this thread, but it appears I'm in the minority there.

Not sure if I can eat them yet but they won't be here for 4-8 weeks, so I should be good then :)

I've tried every one of them but the only one I actually like is the Cookies & Cream. Yes, it is a texture thing but for some reason, the texture of that one seems a bit different. It felt more like I was eating a Cereal bar than taffy and that, I can tolerate.

My husband and I both LOVE Quest bars. I've ordered them directly from the company because it's cheaper even with shipping than at GNC, Amazon, or Max Muscle types of stores from my experience. I don't know what grocery store chains you have in your area, but Hy-Vee is big in Iowa and the stores in the Des Moines area have most of the flavors in individual or by the box and they are the same price as the company when you take shipping costs into account. Most of the time when we want to stock up, we buy by the box because there's also a fuel saver value of 5 cents per box. (For those of you not from here, when you buy fuel saver items they accumulate on a card and you save money when fueling up at Casey's gas stations. 5 cents per gallon of gas with my example above.) Sometimes we leave the store with 30 cents per gallon off our gas price just for the Quest bars! I've tried all of the flavors. I wasn't wild about the Cookies and cream one (I may have been expecting too much) or the strawberry cheesecake one (for the same reason).

My favorites are:

chocolate Chip Cookie dough

Double chocolate Chip Cookie dough

Chocolate Peanut Butter

Smores

Apple Pie

Coconut Cashew

Brownie

White Chocolate Raspberry

My husband loves:

Peanut Butter Pie

PB & Jelly

vanilla Almond Crunch

I bring one for Breakfast at the office every day and drink 24 ounces before I have one and another 24 after (before having lunch). Rarely, do I feel hungry in between.

@@proudgrammy So I tried the raspberry white chocolate you suggested and loved it!!! I also tried the lemon (yuck) s'mores (it's ok but has a cinnamon taste to me and I don't care for cinnamon in food) So favorites are chocolate cookie dough, cookie N cream, and now raspberry white chocolate! Thanks!

Thanks for sharing this! I just ordered my free samples. I LOVE Quest bars! I buy them from GNC, Netrition.com, and I have ordered them from Quest Nutrition as well. I really like almost all of them. My favorites are:
Smores

chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

Double chocolate Chunk

White Chocolate Raspberry

Cookies & Cream

I like the following but don't eat them as often as the above mentioned:

Chocolate Brownie

Lemon Cream Pie

Peanut Butter & Jelly

Cinnamon Roll

banana Nut

Apple Pie

Peanut Butter Supreme

Chocolate Peanut Butter

I eat Quest bars on a daily basis, sometimes twice a day. I keep boxes of almost all of them in the pantry so I always have the flavors I want available when I want them :) I've also found that many of them are better if you heat them in the microwave for about 15-20 seconds. I REALLY like to do that with the Chocolate Brownie, cinnamon roll, banana nut, and apple pie flavors! Yum! Love me some Quest bars!!!!

Cinnamon Roll Quest Bars are my love affair. The Nutrimart stores in my area give you an empty box to fill up with 12 of whatever flavor you'd like for $24/box. I believe GNC and Vitamin Shoppe sell them individually also. Thanks for sharing this for free samples!

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.

      Today I scheduled my mental evaluation and my nutritionist appointments. Yes, we are moving along quiet nice.  December 9th will be here before you know it.
      I have informed my inner circle of family about the surgery and I will be keeping it in my CORE!

      Well, it has been a while since I posted here, but my journey continues. As for breaking my stall, I was able to get down to 214 with the help of a friend via our Fitbit fitness trackers which has made me ecstatic! Since that has happened I was fortunate enough to have my insurance company approve a panniculectomy to remove the panniculus (THIS is the correct term, NOT pannus, see this reference: https://www.merriam-webster.com/medical/panniculus) that has been deviling me for years, even before I had bariatric surgery. It was to the point that it was hanging down far enough to cover my pubic area, covered half my thighs when I would sit, and also drooped between my legs which I could hardly manage to keep together when sitting. For any males that may read this, for a woman that is pretty uncivilized, not to mention, unladylike especially when wearing a dress or skirt - just looks slovenly to say the least. Despite the numerous skin issues I had the last couple of years, my health insurance insisted the procedure was cosmetic... 🤐 . I would guess no one that is saying so has been in the bariatric patient's shoes. The damn thing was just getting to be a self-esteem killer in addition to a medical nuisance requiring many visits to my primary care physician, and interfering with my mobility. Now, I realize there are folks with more egregious panniculus sag issues, but the fact that it interferes with mobility is an important consideration.
      One thing I have to say is that this surgery is drastically different from any other I've had. Things occur that are deemed routine, expected even, after a panniculectomy that would be downright unacceptable after any other procedure. This plastic surgery experience is definitely a learning experience that is still unfolding as I key this entry. For one thing, the swelling is a story all it's own, I had no clue my abdomen could get so large, so quickly, without causing my skin to just split open - it's crazy! So far, I'm pleased to have been able to get this procedure despite may be perceived as drawbacks, just to get the pendulous adipose tissue demon off of my person. Here are a few links to information about this procedure for anyone considering it in the future:

I will provide updates periodically on my progress of this surgical recovery. Have a wonderful day!
