    Next Detour Bars

    Wat does everyone think of the new Detour bars I think they are the bomb, by far the best testing and high quality protein bar I have ever had.

    Off the top of my head they have about 32 grams of protein and about 20 grams of carbs, only 9 grams of sugar. The protein is high quality also, all whey, and they taste just like snickers, not really but close. I know they are hard to come by I am still waiting for a case of them from bodybuilding.com which was back ordered.

    Dude thats fucked up

    WTF, I am going to be seriously pissed when I get my case. I will probably just sell them to my friends since they are all hooked on them and probably won't care about the sugar. Has anyone else heared the same thing? I am about to call Next up and flip. Luckily I have not eaten too many of them because they are so hard to come by.

    my boy is a wholesaler of bodybuilding products and he said that detour bars will not be on the market for much longer unless they relabel or up the protein content.

    im just as pissed, i loved them also...

    How does it feel to get ripped off?

    you getting a shitload of sugar off those shitty bars.

    http://www.cuttingedgemuscle.com/Fo...=&threadid=2623
    "As promised, I have the lab results from 1 of 4(?) companies that are testing for Detour bar label claims..As for anybody not in the know, the Detour bar is the hottest selling bar in the country..The private supplement store where I manage has sold close to 1000 boxes in the past 6 weeks..Because the bar is appealing to just about everybody, (tastes, feels, and looks like Snickers) we sell probably 5 to 1 Detour to every leading brand..Because of the high marks raised from this to every leading brand..Because of the high marks raised from this <a href="http://www.allsportsnutrition.com/listproducts.php?style=category&value=PROTEIN" target="_blank">protein</a> bar, including their competitor's sales, the major supplement companies cryed foul and sent for independent lab analysis of the Detour bar...It wasn't because the Detour bar doesn't taste good, far from it, but that they believe label claims are misleading to what a fully packed with peanut, caramel and nougat bar should be..One bite from this bar, while scanning the label, sends me to <a href="http://www.allsportsnutrition.com/listproducts.php?style=category&value=PROTEIN" target="_blank">protein</a> bar heaven and label claim hell..
    This report is from Shuster labs www.shusterlabs.com
    This analysis was paid for by Nature's Best Inc, a major supplement company in Hauppauge, NY..They make Solid Protein bars, one of many products..It is lab report # 02-6397- project #74680..The Detour bar tested was from lot#121103- Date Dec 17, 2002...

    Here they are:



    Lab results:

    <a href="http://www.allsportsnutrition.com/listproducts.php?style=category&value=PROTEIN" target="_blank">protein</a>- 19.5g

    fat- 13.2g

    carbs- 34.2g

    sugar- 19.4g




    Detour Bar:

    <a href="http://www.allsportsnutrition.com/listproducts.php?style=category&value=PROTEIN" target="_blank">protein</a>- 32g

    fat- 9g

    carbs- 21g

    sugar- 6g




    I was given this report from a NB rep..I will fax it to anybody who wants it. (pm me) He also mentioned MET-RX has their results and are very similar..He was hush-hush on how they were gonna handle the situation..

    I believe these #'s are true..
    Do these #'s bother me? Yes, but I expected them..Sugar is the enemy..I want none at all, if possible..Misleading sugar counts are the bane of this society's obesity rates..
    How about it? Do these #'s bother you? For anybody eating these bars on a daily basis, have you changed physically? mentally?..weight gain, loss?? low carb diet!!.. So you thought..
    Ah, the mind is a terrible thing to use...
    OMG!! Which MEt-RX bars are they talking about??? The Protein Plus ones?!?!?!? I eat the Chocolate Fudge ones daily!!! I hope its not them!!!
