    Those Detour Bars you Love So Much


    Hope no one really eats these or has recently bought any.....these are the lab results of them, thanks to Miggy @ CEM for having them tested and looking out for us....what a scam this turned out to be:

    Lab results:

    protein- 19.5g

    fat- 13.2g

    carbs- 34.2g

    sugar- 19.4g



    Detour Bar:

    protein- 32g

    fat- 9g

    carbs- 21g

    sugar- 6g



    **Ouch

    thankfully ive never tried them. is thier a consensus on this board about the best bar. the only ones ive tried are metrx , powerbar pure protein , and eas. i could care about taste (to a degree) as long as im getting what im paying for.

    I tried one and yes they are good, but I knew at first bite they couldn't be that tasty with the amount of sugar and fat listed. I am surprised that the protein gms are so far off, as Next has always had a great reputation for quality control.

    They taste like a Snickers bar aye? No damn wonder, might as well have the snickers.

    Note that Mike says his results refute the results from that other guy...

    Most bars are junk food really. Too many carbs, glycerin, and sugar. I like them when I am on the road as they are probably better than fast food. My personal favorite right now is the REAL protein bar, good taste, but bland enough to make the 3 gms of sugar they list more believeable. Also main ingredients are whey isolate and hydrolyzed whey, with no added colagen. They were discounting the lemon and chocalate rum cake flavors from $2.99 to $.99 apiece at MM the other day, so I bought 3 boxes. They were only a couple of months old, and will last me a year or more. They were not selling at all. Not enough sugar! They don't taste like a candy bar. Sheeeeze!!

    I also like the Met-Rx protein Plus bars, and they are cheapest at Wal-Mart. Best tasting are Nitro-Tech and Labrada, but they are almost as sweet as Detour and after these results, I would be skeptical of their sugar content.

    I rarely eat protein bars anymore, but when I do its usually Myoplex Deluxe or Pure Protein. Like Benz said, they're not intended as meal replacements, merely desperation meals. Better than fast food, never better than dry oats cover with flax and a can of tuna

    Nature's Best also had them tested and it came out even worse:
    17 fat
    30+ carb
    9 protein

    I posted this on EF last week.

    Good grief. This is so annoying. The local nutrition store owner knows of 3 companies or whatever who've tested them, and they are fine. Now, there is two on here that say not good, and Mike says good. Goodness Gracious.

    Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be any standards in the supplement industry and even less integrity. A company can put whatever they want on a label in hopes of satisfying the customer knowing full well you have to take their word or spend $500 on a lab test to disprove them. It really is an open market for fraudulent companies.

    MySoulFindsRest, Just ask yourself which one of these people would stand to gain most from tests showing accurate label claims. One test, okaaayyy; but 3 tests...... Next he will be offering you some swampland...cheap.

    I'll say it one more time:

    The only bars worth eating are the ones in Wardog's recipe!

    (Unless you're on the freeway, lax in your bar-making duties, in the rain, miles from home, find a little store, and haven't eaten for 4 hours)

    I wanted to try them once, but the GNC at my job had a big recall on them.. They said they didn't meet label claims.. At least I could get a regular Snickers at CVS..

    Less Supplements / More Food


    When I started out bb I used a lot more MRP`s and bars for meals.
    But recently I have found myself using less & less.
    I feel more comfortable eating something like a chicken breast, tuna or salmon even though it means more preparation time.
    At least I have a better idea that way what the `true` nutrtional value of the food is that I`m putting into my body.

    Found this 'over there' from a member here....


    "YellowJacket said it all on anabolicminds.com: "You can taste them and know they're full of sugar." I'm guessing we're disregarding the already discussed topic of Splenda and how it's nearly identical in taste to sugar. "


    Im not sure if you're trying to be a smartass or what....but you can taste the sugar.....and its obvious by the feedback my friend, IT IS SUGAR. So if you have something to say with my name included, feel free to post it over here like a man, 10-4?

    Yep, he does sell them. But at the same time, if I can't trust him, how can I trust anyone in a business(BDC included)? I know the guy, and certain circumstances he's brought around(suing companies and whatnot.) Not a slam at BDC, just making a point. So, just cuz he sells them, doesn't mean anything.


    BTW everyone, YJ said that line "you can taste the sugar in them" in a response to my post, but that wasn't me who made the slam at him, just to let y'all know.
