A Definitive Ranking of the Best Quest Bar Flavors

Whether you're a total workout fiend who counts macros and spends hours in the gym every week or just someone who loves an easy yet healthy snack on the go, Quest Bars remain a consistent go-to for many of us.

These protein bars simply blow away the competition when it comes to both protein content and flavor, as no one really wants to eat something that tastes like a chalky piece of cardboard, right? With that said, though, we can't help but admit that some flavors just come out superior over others when it comes to taste and texture. While we love each and every one, we went ahead and ranked the absolute best Quest Bar flavors for you here:

13. Chocolate Brownie

It's hard to go wrong with a classic like chocolate brownie, but we have to admit that this flavor has a certain chewiness that just isn't quite balanced out with enough chocolatey goodness to make it win out over other flavors on this list.

12. Blueberry Muffin

Breakfast in a bar? Say less. This Quest Bar flavor comes out as one of our favorites thanks to the general softness and the subtle flavor that really does taste like one of our favorite morning pastry items.

11. Mint Chocolate Chunk

If you're a lover of all things mint-meets-chocolate, you can't go wrong with this Quest Bar flavor. It's reminiscent of one of the best ice cream flavors of all time, so what's not to love?

10. Chocolate Sprinkled Doughnut

The texture of the sprinkles marries perfectly with the chocolate coating and soft inside of this Quest Bar flavor, which consistently ranks as a favorite for many protein bar fans.

9. Maple Waffle

When discussing why this flavor makes it onto our definitive ranking of the best Quest Bar flavors, all we really need to say is this: there are chunks meant to resemble the butter atop a stack of waffles. It's truly a breakfast of champions within a perfectly portable protein bar.

8. Birthday Cake

It's pretty hard to go wrong with birthday cake-flavored items, and Quest really proves it with their protein bars. This one is a grocery store shelf staple, and it isn't difficult to see why (once again, we give credit to the presence of sprinkles).

7. Lemon Cake

The texture of this one is soft, crumbly and satisfying, making it a light bite that tastes just like a slice of lemon cake. What really makes it rank so highly for us is the presence of the cake bits throughout the bar, which just add a certain something that you don't get with other popular flavors.

6. Quest Hero: Chocolate Peanut Butter

Now we're really getting to the good stuff with the Quest Hero bars, which are a crispier version of the protein-packed bars we love so much. If you haven't tried them before, the Chocolate Peanut Butter flavor is a great first pick for its simplicity and peanut buttery goodness.

5. Oatmeal Chocolate Chip

While we love the classic Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough flavor, something about this Quest Bar just feels different. The smooth sweetness of the thick chocolate chunks balances the texture of the oatmeal cookie bar perfectly, making it a great snack for any setting.

4. Quest Hero: Chocolate Coconut

Crispy? Check. Chocolatey? Check. Caramelly? Double-check. This Quest Bar flavor is simply one of the best of all time, especially if you're a fan of the Quest Hero series of bars.

3. Quest Hero: Chocolate Caramel Pecan

If you just can't get with coconut in desserts, then you might want to go with this flavor that just barely inches out on top of the Chocolate Caramel Quest Hero flavor.

2. Dipped Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

If you didn't think a flavor like Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough could get any better, think again. Quest went ahead and did it with their Dipped Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough flavor, which levels up on the traditional version with a thin chocolate coating that just melts in your mouth and makes every bite an absolute delight.

1. Quest Hero: Cookies & Cream

While we could have put the regular Cookies & Cream Quest Bar flavor on this list, the Quest Hero version edges it out without question. A cocoa puffed center is wrapped in white chocolate, making each bite a beautifully textured piece of perfection that makes this bar so good you could even eat it for dessert (in fact, we have before).
