Saw this on Priceplow earlier.

I haven't had a Quest bar in so long now that I think about it lol

I think it's because more brands are now doing their own protein bars and they can't compete with them... just speculation from me.

How do you run a giant company on a simple protein bar alone? I have never seen anyone buy Quest Protein powder at any store/gym

I didn't know they are based in LA.  The Quest bars I get at various gas stations were always old and hard, not edible. 
You'd think they would be better for being local.
I stopped buying them completely.

That's almost exactly what happened to me too.

There protein is not the best but it does taste excellent and good for a smoothie and such but nothing I would use on a regular.  Good for someone just starting into supplements though.

I loved the key lime pie bars too.

They did comment on priceplows FB post and mentioned that they are simply moving their facilities.

Apparently CA is expensive

I'm sure they are hurting. Tough to sell for $3.00 per bar when you can get an almost identical nutritional profile from Costco's house brand. They definitely aren't on the same level as far as the flavor options but for 1/3 the price I know what my choice is man. Still surprising to see them shutter at all since I still see them everywhere.
Health
Happiness
Wealth

If they don't come in that order you're bound to lose all three.

It looks more like they are relocating, as taxes in CA are too high
