Where to get Quest bars in Singapore

Quest Bars have been gaining popularity tremendously, especially in the fitness community, as a ‘clean cheat’!

When we want to lose fat or build lean muscle, it is important to control carb intake. What Quest has done is to create a bar that has only a few grams of available carbohydrates (almost all of Quest Bar’s carbs come from inert fiber which helps keep you full but doesn’t send your insulin levels to the skies).

The ingredients in these low-carb, gluten free, high-protein Quest Bars are worth noting. They are sweetened by natural sweeteners like stevia, erythritol, lo han guo and sucralose. You can view the rest of the ingredients here.

There is a wide range of flavours and there surely must be one that you like! I have tasted most of them and my favourite is the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, which tastes really good! They also have Double Chocolate Chunk, White Chocolate Raspberry, Chocolate Brownie, Vanilla Almond Crunch, Peanut Butter Supreme, Apple Pie, Mixed Berry Bliss, Peanut Butter & Jelly, Banana Nut Muffin, Chocolate Peanut Butter, Cinnamon Roll, Coconut Cashew, Strawberry Cheesecake and Lemon Cream Pie.

This is how the bar looks like :

It is not chocolate coated and things can get a tad sticky. Some people also find it a bit hard to chew and get tired from all the gnawing and chewing. I’m fine with it though – I ever polished off 8 bars at a go (not recommended)!

A lot of people have also come up with interesting Quest Bar recipes, making snacks and cakes that are less sinful. For example, there are recipes for brownies made with Quest Bar:

There are so many things you can with the Quest Bars, from making cupcakes to brownies, pizzas, pancakes or cinnamon rolls – all which are more guilt-free because of the ‘clean’ factor of Quest Bars. Just Google for Quest Bar recipes or go to Instagram and look under @questnutrition or #questbars or #onaquest. @blogilates and @vmfitness also have very interesting recipes.

For example, these are Cinnamon Roll Peanut Butterscotch Pancakes using the Cinnamon Roll bar:

Now for the price and where to get them?

On the official Quest Bar website, a single bar costs US$2.39, while a box of 12 is US$24.99 (single flavour) or US$25.99 (sampler pack). Buying from there will rack up high shipping costs of US$15 to US$25, so most people buy from iHerb.com where shipping is just S$4 via SingPost (takes 4 to 8 days). One box of 12 (single flavour) costs US$26.78 on iHerb, hence it is more worthwhile to buy from them.

If you are looking to get them sooner, there are a few places you can get them from in Singapore. However, they may not have every flavour or may be limited in stocks.

1) Clean Food Market
They sell one bar at S$3.90 each, with a minimum of 2 per flavour. If you want to get a box of 12 Mix-&-Match bars, it will cost S$44.90 per box (works out to $3.74 per bar). Payment is to be done via ATM or iBanking transfers and delivery can be done (at an additional cost) via SingPost. There is a meet-up option too – at Tampines or City Hall. Email: cleanfoodmarket@gmail.com

2) Fit Food Singapore
Selling one bar at S$3.50 each, there is no bulk/package price available. Delivery is done either via SingPost (ranges from S$1 to S$3) or doorstep delivery at S$15. Payment is to be done via ATM or iBanking transfers. No meet-up self-collection option. Email: fitfoodsingapore@gmail.com

3) Nutascy
Primarily a nut butter store, they have since brought in Quest Bars. Each bar is sold at S$3.50 and S$42 for a box of 12 (single flavour). Again, payment to be made ATM or iBanking transfers.
