Protein is crucial for someone with chronic illness. One of the easiest and most convenient ways to get as much protein as possible is to eat things like Quest Bars. There are many, many brands of protein bars, but I prefer the Quest brand for several reasons.

One is the texture of the other brands. To me, they seem mealy. I don’t know how else to describe it. Another is flavor. I only eat two or three flavors of Quest Bars, and some of the flavors I see in the store from other brands make me wince.

But on to the review…


Quest Bars are made by Quest Nutrition. My favorite flavor is chocolate brownie, since it satisfies that craving for chocolate most of us have, without eating a ton of high fructose corn syrup. This particular box is a variety pack, but they do come in single-flavor boxes too.

As someone with chronic illness, I try to automate everything in my life, and one of the ways I do that is to use Subscribe and Save from Amazon. Every month, I get a box of consumer products of all types delivered to my door. I have the option of receiving each product anywhere from every month to every six months. My credit card is charged automatically, so I don’t have to do anything once I set up the service. If I want to, I can add, change, or delete products at any time. I can also skip a month or change the frequency any of the products are delivered.

So I guess this turned into a review of both the Quest Bars and Subscribe and Save services. A two for one!
