Quest Candy Bites offer a bite-sized snacking experience for consumers seeking indulgent options that won’t compromise their nutritional goals. For those who are looking for a bar-sized treat, the Quest Candy Bar is suitable for everyday snacking occasions or as a dessert.
"We are excited to launch Quest Candy Bites and Candy Bar, offering consumers the macros they are looking for, in a delicious bite-sized treat," says Linda Zink, chief marketing officer for the Quest brand at Simply Good Foods. "U.S. chocolate buyers are looking for mini-sized chocolate bars, and our goal is to help them satisfy their cravings without all the sugar and carbs, and never compromising on taste.
