I had the great pleasure of trying out some Detour Activity Bars. I was also asked to post my feedback on these bars so here we go
They were three different types of bars:
1.) Detour Runner Bar-Chocolate Chip Cookie Bar
This bar was good. It was soft in texture ( I like this cause some bars seem to get hard when you purchased them). I'm not a runner as much as an avid biker, but I still tried this bar after running on the treadmill after the gym. It was a great, quick fix til I was able to make a meal.
2.) Detour Biker Bar-Raspberry Dark Chocolate Bar
I like this bar I think there needs to be alittle more work on the taste, but overall I liked it. It states its a dark chocolate bar, which I believe it needs more of that dark chocolate flavor. Its a little too sweet. Now I'm an endurance mountain and road rider and I even brought a few for my friends to try. One person mentioned that dark chocolate has more of a bitter flavor taste to it and that this bar lacked that flavor. I did however like the raspberry flavor. One thing I felt that was missing was softness, definitely not as soft as the runner bar. Its a bar I would take on a long ride with me. One thing I felt that was missing was softness, definitely not as soft as the runner bar.
3.) Detour Core Strength Bar-I just ate this bar after any workout being going to the gym, biking etc. Nothing I can mention in regards to this bar that I haven't already covered.
I haven't had the opportunity to taste all the flavors. There are 3 types of bars with different flavors. The chocolate chip cookie bar was the best as far as flavor.
I thought these bars are off to a great beginning as far as each bar having a beneafit for a specific activity.
The biker bar is an all natural energy bar with "Rhodiola" to help improve muscle stamina and recovery.
The runner bar is an all natural energy bar with "MicroLactin" for joint health.
I can't remember what the core strength bar was for cause I ate them all!
I will comment that none of these bars made my stomach hurt, which I have found with other bars on the market.
Would I continue to use this bars? Personally with a few minor changes to the flavor and freshness of the bars. YES.
Anyhoo, I hope that some of you out there have the opportunity to try these bars.
