FINALS FRIDAY–Quest Cinnamon Crunch

Well we are all over the place with this shake!  If it didn’t taste so damn good, I would never buy it again.  However, it tastes just like Cinnamon Toast Crunch and even has little cereal bits in it (which I know some readers have told me they dislike) but to me it really seemed like I was having my favorite childhood cereal.   Here is the breakdown:

  1. Nutrition (F):  Dr. Laurie Brodsky gave her first F to a shake.  That alone would never want me to buy this shake again.
  2. Cost (A):  I was very surprised how cheap this shake is because I’m addicted to the Quest bars and I find them very expensive (they are about $2.50/bar).  However, this shake I bought on Amazon for $32 and you get 30 servings.  Therefore, it is only a little over a dollar per serving.  That is very very reasonable!!
  3. Taste (A+): This is by far the best shake I have ever tasted!  I LOVE LOVE LOVE Cinnamon Toast Crunch, and this tastes just like it even with only water.
  4. Filling (C+).  This shake was below average for filling me up.  It may be because the calorie count is low on this shake (only 100 calories), but for some reason I felt pretty hungry all week.
  5. Energizing (B-). This shake was not that energizing at all.  I did have a crazy week, but all I kept thinking about is how much caffeine I could have so that I would be able to still fall asleep.   I definitely need to find a shake that energizes me more…as an attorney with three kids–I NEED ENERGY!!
  6. Total Score (C+).  With how great this shake tastes, I really wish it was better nutritionally, filled me up better, and helped keep me energized.  Since we all sometimes feel like kids and want Cinnamon Toast Crunch, I am happy to have this alternative but it is definitely not even comparable to Shakeology:(  Final Grade-B (1)
