Hazelnuts are definitely a bit of a trend in bars at the moment...first? Landing last year, Fulfil's surprise smash flavour, 'Hazelnut Whip' (this one smashed our Fulfil sales records and remains crazy popular in the Mix!). Then, also last year (part of Maddie's craveable Christmas range!), we got to enjoy Swolesome's '(Hazel)Nut Roast' bar (filled with real nutella!! 'Nuff said). Most recently? The crunchy, Rocher-style Barebells 'Hazelnut Nougat' bar (by far the most popular 'pick' through our Barebells 'February Favourites' promo last month!)
The very first Quest bar rocking hazelnut front and centre, this nutty note is set against a background of smooth cocoa, complete with a generous number of classic Quest choc chips.
So...chocolate, hazelnut...sounds about right? Tastes like nutella, right?! *Yawn* Been there, done that!
Whoa there...hold up! Not quite!!
Quest are known for forging their own path and, sure enough, there's something a little different going on here! This bar is RAMMED with real hazelnuts. Big, generous chunks, too...not just little chips, candied and caramelised or otherwise. And the chocolate? More plain (not dark!) than milk and not too sweet. Plus...natural sweeteners and natural flavours only (and only 1g sugar (!!), alongside the modest 4g net carbs and 20g protein!)
All in all? This is #cheatclean in full force, and this simple, natural take on this classic flavour combo lends it a truly authentic flavour, more subtle than the (much) sweeter alternatives out there.
A resemblance to Rocher? Yep...definitely! A nod to nutella? Sure! But this bar's its own beast and is sure to bring a smile to the face of anyone with a taste for a real deal, honest, 'Quest-ified' hazelnut fix (and, don't worry, the #ChunkPorn is a thing!!)
Quest Choc Hazelnut is available in the Mix right now and in our all-time bestselling 'Not So Dirty Dozen' Quest Protein Pick and Mix Bundle!
