quick and easy breakfast: quest beyond cereal bar review



Quest Nutrition Bars have become my go-to snack, whether it's post-run or while I'm out running errands. I've tried out four different flavors of their Protein Bars and all three of the new Hero bars. This review will be in regards to the Quest Beyond Cereal Bars

I'm someone that often skips breakfast. I know, it's awful. I'm either running late (no pun intended), I just don't feel like making anything, or I'm not super hungry when I wake up (I usually need about an hour or two to feel hungry, and I'm certainly not someone that's going to wake up super early so I can be awake long enough to eat breakfast before going to work or for a run). So when there's an easy solution for both of these, I'll try it. Especially if it's something I can grab, run out of the house, and eat in the car with ease. No heating up or prep work necessary.


Quest Beyond Cereal Bars can be purchased 24/7 at 7-Eleven stores nationwide, so check our your local store today. Filling up the tank with gas? Pop inside to grab some Quest Beyond Cereal Bars. Pro tip: always keep a stash at the ready. They come in three amazing flavors: Cinnamon Roll, Waffle, and Chocolate. Super convenient to grab and go (after paying of course haha). 

Excited to try them all!

Not only are the Quest Beyond Cereal Bars easy to pick up while you’re on the go AND taste delicious, they also pack 12 grams of protein per bar. Plus, they are only 110 calories. They are chewy and have the consistency of most cereal bars I’ve tried, but they taste better, in my opinion. You’ll also find 2–3g net carbs and 6–7g fiber. 

Another great thing about Quest Beyond Cereal Bars is that they use allulose, which is a rare sugar that’s found in nature (like figs and raisins), and though it’s very different that regular sugar, it tastes like it without the added calories. Boom.

Had to try the Cinnamon Roll first. So good.

I know a lot of us are conscious of what we are putting in our bodies and how many calories it is. Nice to know this quick and easy option isn’t filled with added sugar or calories, but with protein, fiber, and less carbs and sugar than the leading cereal bar.

Goes great with your morning cup of joe. Or tea.

Here’s some info on the Quest Beyond Cereal Chocolate Bar to give you an idea:

Regular cereal is made from grains. BEYOND cereal is made from protein! The Quest “Beyond Cereal” Bar has all the sweet, comforting crunch of a junk food cereal bar, but with the incredible nutritional profile you know you can expect from Quest. It’s a bar for the kid in all of us who loves cereal, but dares to GO AGAINST THE GRAIN. 

ALLULOSE: This is our first product using Allulose, a revolutionary sweetener found in nature that offers all the taste and texture of traditional sugar, but with only 1/10th of the calories! Watch the video below to learn more!

INGREDIENTS
Protein Blend (Milk Protein Isolate, Whey Protein Isolate), Allulose‡, Soluble Corn Fiber (Prebiotic Fiber), Butter, Cocoa Powder (Processed with Alkali), Palm Kernel Oil, Water, Natural Flavors. Contains less than 2% of the following: Almonds, Erythritol, Sea Salt, Baking Soda, Cellulose Gum, Xanthan Gum, Sucralose, Sunflower Lecithin.

Post-workout treat. Surprisingly, I think Chocolate was my favorite.
I say that, because I'm not a huge chocolate lover, but this bar does it right.
I think the added crunch is what got me :)

Generally, in a regular cereal bar, you’ll find closer to 200 calories, along with more carbs and more sugars.

I love tossing a Quest Beyond Cereal Bar in my bag for a convenient and healthy on-the-go snack, because you know I like to eat all day, and so always need to keep snacks at the ready. They also make a great, healthy breakfast to start my day. I’ll eat a bar while drinking my morning coffee or tea on those days I get to home. Or I'll grab a Quest Beyond Cereal Bar to eat after my run; which usually ends up being between meals in which case I can't eat too much, but need something to tide me over. Definitely better than grabbing for a candy bar or some potato chips. It tastes like a sweet treat, but really, it’s giving me some much needed protein and not so much of that not-so-needed high sugar levels.

What the Chocolate looks like.

Stop by your local 7-Eleven store for your convenient healthy breakfast bar Quest Beyond Cereal Bar.
