They say good things come in small packages, and nowhere is this more true than in the case of Detour Snack Size Caramel Peanut Bars. I've been a big fan of Detour protein bars for a long time because they have a monster amount of protein ... and they taste like candy bars. But the larger size bars can be calorie dense, and I was curious to see if the smaller 20 gram snack bar would satisfy my sweet tooth and keep hunger pangs at bay for a while.
Detour bars contain a "designer whey protein blend," and for some wonderful reason, a 20 gram,80-calorie bar has 7 grams of protein in addition to 5% of total & saturated fat, 1 gram of fiber, and 3 grams of sugar - no sugar alcohols either, so those with sensitivities likely need not worry.
I found Detour Snack Size Caramel Peanut Protein Bar for $1.19 each. They're perfectly portable, delicious, and nutritious to boot - though the ingredients list is a little long and convoluted.
Still, I know the Detour Snack Size Caramel Peanut Bar will now be one bar that I will reach for again post-workout. For you candy lovers out there - these are a much better alternative to a Snickers bar for example (although the Snickers Marathon Nutrition Bar (Honey & Toasted Almond) we reviewed is low calorie and protein & fiber rich).
