First of all, I have to wish my brother Edwin a happy 22nd birthday!!!_____________________________________________________________________
I have worked with Detour for a couple reviews in the past and was recently contacted to try their new bar: the Detour Smart Bar. It is gluten-free and a naturally sweetened oatmeal bar.
It has only 130 calories, 4 grams of sugar, 3 grams of fiber and 10 grams of protein. They come in blueberry and apple cinnamon flavors and are drizzled with a Greek style yogurt drizzle.
The Detour Smartbars are both really tasty! I tried both flavors together and could not choose a favorite between the two. I am impressed that they are so low in calories yet contain 10 grams of protein. They are a great choice for those who follow a gluten-free diet.
The bars were chewy and not at all crumbly. I had one of these for my midmorning snack at work and enjoyed them. They would also make a smart post-workout snack because you get a boost of whole grain carbohydrates from the oats as well as a boost of protein. This carbohydrate/protein ratio is great for after a workout when your body needs fuel to recover.
