Don't yell at me...
No, most bars are not primal, but these are essential a bunch of primal snacks rolled into a bar.
Ingredients (in apple pie flavor)
whey protein isolate and milk protein isolate
lo han guo (natural sweetener)
I didn't get a chance to cook at home today so I ate one as a meal replacement today (along with some added fat, since they're low on fat) and it was quite good. Thoughts? Don't smite me, primal gods...
They're not the worst thing out there, however, they do contain artificial sweeteners (sucralose) and I am pretty positive the whey protein is not grass-fed/finished.
My thoughts are that if we're trying to eat whole foods, things wrapped in foil probably aren't very primal. But, as always, if it makes you happy and it's not a straight up poison, it's no big deal.
Definitely fits within the realm of 80/20. It's not primal or ideal by any means, but certainly not awful for your body either. As long as you're eating it in good conscious, it should be okay.
If you're going to eat a bar, I'd rather eat chocolate, honestly.
I'd choose a Lara bar over that one

I would too, but as a meal replacement, the bar in question seems like a better candidate. It probably has a much higher protein count, with the whey in it.
larabar or perfect foods bar
the latter has a similar macro profile to the quest bar (17-18g prrotein) and is made from nut butter, fruit, and veggies

So the protein is of inferior quality. I vote that if you're going to eat a protein bar (which I don't really recommend), at least get one with animal protein.
