I'd go for the other flavours

I can definitely see why people would enjoy it and if you love raisins then I'm sure you would too. For the raisin lovers (and a warning for the non raisin lovers) these have whole raisins. I was actually expecting raisin chunks blended in so this was quite shocking to me. Whole chunks made it a bit difficult to spread and the raisins also sank straight to the bottom in mine so I basically ate all peanut butter .. and then all raisins. Never the less it was delicious, as all peanut butter and co flavours are and I ended up just spooning it out and eating it. Wouldnt buy again but wouldnt say I didn't enjoy it.

New to raw foods and love this!

Posted on Aug 12, 2013

Purchased at iHerb

I'm new to raw foods and am gradually exploring the concept of it. Prior to this my idea of raw foods was bean sprouts and raw nuts which, to be completely honest, was not all that appealing to me. I was pleasantly surprised as the crunchy texture and sweet taste, and became quickly addicted to this. They taste fantastic and are a great snack. I love the crunchiness of them as well - it feels like I'm eating sweet chips. Absolutely love them. They're simply too addictive!!

Delicious

Posted on Aug 13, 2013

Purchased at iHerb

Mmm I absolutely love these! They have no agave syrup added unlike the rest of the range so I try to always keep this flavour on hand in the kitchen. They don't have a strong chocolate flavour but make up for it with a fantastic crunchy texture - crunchier than most chips, and they're relatively low calorie provided you stick to the (generous!) recommended serving suggestion. Slight problem is that the taste and texture always leave you wanting more! Goes great with a nice afternoon cup of tea. Couldn't recommend these more for a delicious afternoon snack!

Saviour to clean eating diets

Posted on Aug 12, 2013

Purchased at iHerb

To put it simply: a winner because it's clean, delicious, easy to prepare and great value for money. This flavour is absolutely amazing and the fact that it's completely natural and so easy to cook and prepare is a huge plus. I've always got a couple of these on hand in the kitchen and go into panic mood when I run down because they're so fantastic for an easy but macro nutrient balanced meal. A little tip: I don't include butter in this and cook 1 kg of chicken breast which is almost double the recommended serving but it still tastes amazing! Great for the calorie conscious or hitting protein macros without putting your taste buds into depression.

Dieter's dream

Posted on Aug 12, 2013

Purchased at iHerb

These taste so decadent I often eat them during my refeed meals just because I'm craving the taste! Definitely prevent negative psychological consequences of dieting and healthy eating (namely those feelings of deprivation) - I don't know how life went by without them, and i'm not even exaggerating. Great macronutrient profile, clean ingredients, good value for money and tastes amazing. Versatile and can be used for cooking. I can't recommend this line of protein bars enough and this flavour is just out of this world. Quest nutrition are amazing!

Fantastic substitute

Posted on Aug 13, 2013

Purchased at iHerb

This arrived the other day and I was very pleasantly surprised and the similarity to soy sauce - i actually prefer it as the taste isnt as overwhelming! The product has a moderately salty taste but what I love about it is the aroma of soy that you receive without the sharp taste of full strength soy sauce. The product is also lower in sodium so you're not left thirsty after the meal. Add a quick squirt to vegetables, eggs or dumplings and enjoy! One minor issue is that this seems to buy quite quickly in comparison to soy sauce and left difficult to wash stains on my fry pan so be careful with that - add after where possible.

Fantastic substitute for Nutella

Posted on Sep 01, 2013

Purchased at iHerb

I grew up eating Nutella - we used to have those single serving packs with the small spatula for lunch, but since I picked up a healthy lifestyle this childhood staple has pretty much been eliminated from my diet. In short if you love Nutella you should definitely give this a try! I know a few reviews on here have found the spread as salty but I was pleased to find that my jar actually did not have many grains of salt, and when I did come across them they were actually quite pleasant in breaking up the sweetness. Teensy bit too sweet for me so I'll be trying Justin's chocolate almond butter next. Also I didn't find any almond grittiness at all (which you may or may not be looking for depending on personal preference) & didn't eat it with bread but can attest to the fact that it'd be difficult to spread on bread.

Not quite for me

Posted on Aug 12, 2013

Purchased at iHerb

As a general statement Quest Protein Bars have an amazing nutritional profile and use fantastic ingredients which means you're not injecting a chemistry lab into your body with every bite - so your body will thank you! This flavour specifically is enjoyable and has that strawberry candy taste but is missing that tarte cheesecake flavour that comes to mind. Never the less it is tasty and a bonus is the 100% natural ingredients, though this flavour is not quite for me. As a bit of a chocolate fiend I prefer chocolate brownie, chocolate chip cookie dough and chocolate peanut butter a bit more.

Enjoyed but would not repurchase

Posted on Sep 01, 2013

Purchased at iHerb

I recently discovered Justin's almond butters and made quite a few purchases from their collection (much to the dismay of my bank account). As an almond butter lover I have to say .. this doesn't quite have that gritty almond texture that I've come to love so much. Undoubtedly it is tasty but something about the texture - possibly the addition of cocoa butter - that's given it a creamy texture which, when paired with almond butter, is not quite right. I'm glad I've tried it but I wouldn't repurchase. Pros would be the easier spread-ability and lessened likelihood of separation but so far my favourite is maple almond by far.

Undecided

Posted on Aug 12, 2013

Purchased at iHerb

They certainly have better flavours (chocolate has no Agave syrup added and the masala chai flavour is so delicious) although this one is a bit funky in taste. It's hard to explain but it definitely tastes strange, though that being said the taste grows on you and once i had a few I actually started quite enjoying it. If you're new the raw foods and/or don't value the nutritional value quiet as strongly as taste then I'd recommend sticking with the sweeter flavours. I like purchasing this flavour because it's less addictive yet still appetising.

Not bad

Posted on Aug 12, 2013

Purchased at iHerb

A lot of the time when you think something is too good to be true, it generally is. While this syrup is edible it maintains that fake sweetener taste and the ingredients list is questionable. Definitely the better of the Walden Farm's dressings. The only pitfall is that since I picked up clean eating this has been sitting in my fridge.

Not recommended

Posted on Aug 13, 2013

Purchased at iHerb

I was so excited for the prospect of calorie free but delicious dressings although its true when I say 'too good to be true'. Something about this product is just off even though it has the aroma spot on. Unfortunately when you start to eat it you get this strange artificial taste, and me and my partner ended up prefering our dinner without it. Used it for the first time when I received it and havent touched it since. It also does this strange stringy crusting at the lid which looks really unnatural and turned me off it quite a bit. Don't get me wrong - for what it is, its okay .. but maybe just for me it was unappealing ..
