They're a little bit too expensive for me personally. If I had more money I'd eat one every now and then.

This is exactly how I feel. I've been thinking about making my own, though. Depends on how much sweetener is needed for them to taste good.

I can and have eaten entire boxes of quest bars in under a week. The GNC on base has a buy 3 get the 4th free sale that even applies to all of the bar still in the box. I love all the fiber they have. The downside to that is, between the fiber and my veggie/probiotics, the bathroom tends to sound like a war zone.

I will eat some of the other bars if I find them on sale too, but they have a ton of sugar. My favorite is the detour low sugar peanut butter flavor. I would even sneak those back into the barracks in basic, Wrappers made no noise and the toilets easily flush the wrappers away.

Never tried 'em. Not too keen, either. I'll take actual food every time.

I don't. I just can't justify the price. I can buy a pound or so of good meat for what some of these bars cost. (More if I buy chicken). I have considered trying some of the homemade recipes because I do recognize the convenience having a protein bar would add.

When my schedule was hectic or for something different I might eat one, but for the most part I haven't had one in a while.

They are convenient for on the go I eat them every now and again but I don't rely on them. Some are pretty good and some are awful tasting

Quest bars when I need something quick. They are pricy, but they are the best tasting that I have found.
