Detour Bar Review and Giveaway

I recently had the opportunity to try some Detour Bars. If you have not tried them, I highly recommend that you do! Never heard of them, check out this information straight from their website, Detour Bar.


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.

We began with whey protein, the highest-quality protein available, which contains all the essential amino acids for muscle recovery and repair. And, then we focused on making the most delicious bars and drinks possible. The results are award-worthy!

Our Original Detour Protein bars, Lower Sugar bars, and Lean Muscle bars & shakes all prove that you can have it all: outstanding performance and great taste.

Benefits of a Protein-Enriched Diet

Consuming high-protein foods has many benefits, including:

  • Speeding recovery after exercise
  • Reducing muscle loss
  • Building lean muscle
  • Helping you maintain a healthy weight
  • Curbing hunger

Why choose Whey Protein?

Whey protein is a high-quality, complete protein that is naturally found in dairy. The protein in whey is very efficient at helping you build and maintain muscle. It is also great for training and regular consumption, with multiple benefits including weight maintenance.

I sampled the Detour Peanut Butter Cream Lower Sugar Bar.  It is a yummy post recovery bar.
