We are very excited to be talking about Detour’s brand new Neapolitan flavored protein bar today, simply because it looks incredible. Detour is a nutrition company that specializes in making some of the finest and tastiest looking protein and nutrition products on the market, most of which we have already tried or will be reviewing in the near future. They say: “Detour is owned and manufactured by Forward Foods LLC, which produces and markets high protein bars and shakes. Detour was launched in October, 2002, with the goal of revolutionizing the world of high-protein snack bars”. First, they started out with their original protein bar, but later expanded to a much larger line of protein bars and nutrition products. You can find Detour products almost anywhere food is sold, such as: grocery stores, nutrition stores, health food stores, online retailers, as well as their own online store. To learn more about Detour, be sure and head to their web-site for more information on their line of products, and how you can get your hands on your very own Detour products.
The brand new product we are going to look at for today’s review just so happens to be an extension of their lower sugar line of protein bars, which has been nothing but a treat in our previous reviews. Detour describes their new ice-cream inspired protein bar by saying: “A triple play of delicious ice cream inspired flavors – a rich milk chocolate soft set layer sandwiched between creamy vanilla and sweet strawberry nougat – melt together in a one-of-a-kind taste experience”. As you can see from the picture below, the bar looks pretty amazing, and we are happy to report that it tastes as good as it looks. You get a rush of vanilla, strawberry and chocolate all from one bite of this protein bar, which actually doesn’t even make much sense when you think about it. Detour has really done an amazing thing with this bar, because you get 15 grams of protein, in addition to a nice dose of BCAA’s. A few things that set this apart from other protein bars is the taste and texture, the latter which really makes this nutrition bar pretty awesome. Texturally, this bar is soft like a candy bar, with just a bit of crunch from the multiple layers of flavors that make this bar what it is–yummy. If you’re trying to cut down on sugar for a new year’s resolution or to just lead a healthier life-style, this new flavor from Detour would be a good option for you, mainly because you can’t tell that it only has 3 grams of sugar in it. If you think were lying, go out and try this bar and let us know what you think in the comments section of this review. Overall (4.5 out of 5).
The pros are that you can easily get your hands on them, they taste great, the texture is good, it’s loaded with belly filling protein, it’s got plenty of BCAA’s to keep you going, and it actually tastes like Neapolitan ice-cream.
The cons are that it has some sugar alcohols in it, which could throw some people off if you have a sensitive stomach.
