LOS ANGELES — Quest Nutrition is breaking into the better-for-you confections category with the launch of Quest Peanut Butter Cups.

Featuring the combination of chocolate and peanut butter, the treats contain 11 grams of protein, 1 gram of net carbs and less than 1 gram of sugar per two-piece serving.

“People are indulging in sweet treats during these challenging times, but that doesn't mean they want to abandon their health goals,” said Linda Zink, chief marketing officer for Quest Nutrition. “Our goal is to disrupt all the food categories people crave with better-for-you options that offer low sugar, low net carbs and high quality, complete protein; first chips, cookies, pizza and now confections.”

Quest Peanut Butter Cups are available in two-count packs for $2.49, four-count packs for $7.99 and 12-count packs for $24.99. The confections may be found at Target, Walmart, Amazon, Vitamin Shoppe, GNC, Hy-Vee, Wegmans, Speedway and Giant Eagle.
