These use soluble corn fiber which is in fact mostly fiber. Eat one and you'll know the fiber count is no lie.

The Kirkland bars are tapioca fiber which is not actually fiber but in fact starch. Not good for keto or weight loss generally. If you eat the Kirkland bars you should test your blood sugar response to them.

I agree that the tapioca starch is not a good source of fiber. I'm a type 1 diabetic with a continuous glucose monitor and the Kirkland bars spike my sugar instantly while the quest bars don't. I wanted to like the Kirkland ones because they are much cheaper but they are certainly not "high in fiber"

Also, FYI, because this is a lightning deal it's limit 1 per customer. That being said you can get different flavors to get more than 1. Chocolate chip cookie dough is down to $15.75

It's not QA issues. They changed the formulation to include crappy ingredients and quest tastes like shit now.

I just stick to the Costco ones

Yep I also rock the Kirkland signature. The combo pack of chocolate peanut butter avs cookies and cream is great

Their maths don't even make any sense. According to the table, there should be 11 grams of net carbs, while their picture states 4+1.
200 - (8*9 + 21*4) = 44
On the other hand, the table says 15g of dietary fibers. So if we do the maths in the other direction, we get,
8*9 + 21*4 + (21-15)*4 = 180...

I can't trust their nutrition facts.

Agreed. Once I bought Costco I never looked back. Quest with the original formula were the best but those days are long gone.

I also vouch for Kirkland. You can buy the split 2-flavor packs at the store, or you can order 2-packs of 20 bars of the same flavor on the website. I order double packs of Chocolate-PB from the website for $39.99 https://www.costco.com/kirkland-s...23984.html

Costco brand is kind of bland if you're sticking to one or two flavors. I get the sprinkled donut quest bar and eat two a day - it is definitely 4g net carbs as I've been in keto for a year (330 to 202). 21g carbs, 15g dietary fiber, 2g erythritol. That's 4g.

I have 3 quest bars a day ... it definitely upsets my stomach at times. Cookies and Cream is alright. I prefer the ones with peanut butter
