Review: Quest Nutrition — S’mores Bar
Up today we’re taking a look at S’mores Protein Bar, by Quest Nutrition.
Never had S’mores but a traditional nighttime campfire treat consisting of a fire-roasted marshmallow and a layer of chocolate sandwiched between two pieces of graham cracker sounds AMAZING. So naturally, we tried it on cheat day.
The first bite has a gritty type of texture to it, crisp and a bit crunchy, probably from the graham cracker chunks. The flavour wasn’t quite like a campfire toasted s’mores — but after microwaving it for 10 seconds, it resembles a s’mores a bit better, without the mess.
With sparse chunks of dark chocolate and plenty of crumbled cracker-like bits, the bar is interesting to eat. There isn’t a massive marshmallow hit — in fact to me, it was noticeably absent.
With the standard Quest offering of 20 grams of protein at 180 calories per serve, this bar hits the mark for protein content and could pass as a meal replacement if that’s what you’re after.

What does Quest Nutrition say about them?
Toasty-sweet marshmallow, rich chocolate and crisp graham cracker layered together in this melt-in-your-mouth, campfire classic. Plus with 20g of protein and only 1g sugar per bar it’s the first s’more you can enjoy.
The Good Snacks verdict?
So… We liked the bar. It’s got the right amount of chocolate and you can just feel the marshmallow flavour, which makes it not too sweet.
The Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and the Cookies & Cream are probably the pick of the Quest Bar bunch on taste. The S’mores bar is unique though, and a pretty tasty way to cheat clean.
