Hey all! So if you’ve seen my other flavour reviews, you probably already know that I am a huge fan of Quest and their products. They have the best nutrition profile of any bars and all of their products taste amazing and deliver quality protein and fibre. Their customer service is also amazing and overall they are just a great company. So I’ve tried pretty much every flavour of their protein bar line including the Quest Craving PB Cups (which by the way are awesome!) but I had yet to try their new flavour White Chocolate Raspberry. While at my local nutrition store yesterday I noticed they just got them in and excitedly I bought 3 bars to try( I was sure I would like them!) And man was I right!! This bar is so delicious! I felt like I was eating dessert for breakfast. I love the new soft texture to all their bars. The white chocolate chunks and raspberry were throughout the entire bar. No fake raspberry taste here! It tasted almost like raspberry cheesecake or a raspberry muffin when heated up. I love how the sweetness from the white chocolate compliments the tanginess from the berries. When I finished the bar I had to restrain myself from eating another one! They are that good! & It’s hard to believe but this flavour almost tops my past favourite, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough or at least ties. Seriously if I could I would go buy a full box of just this flavour alone. I highly recommend you try it out and heat it up for about 15 sec. in the microwave for best results! That way all the white chocolate melts and makes it even more amazing :).

Rating: 10/10  Nice work Quest! Can’t wait to see what you come up with next!
