PRNewswire CARLSBAD, Calif. Oct. 22 :
Trick or treat! This year, Horizon Air`s in-flight customers will receive
a special Halloween treat—the country`s best-selling protein candy bar.
Distributed on flights now through the end of October, DETOUR is the first
protein bar to rival the taste of the best-selling candy bars by combining
crunchy peanuts, creamy caramel and rich chocolate flavor with 30 grams of
powerful whey protein.
“Our customers are always looking for healthy snacks,” said Andy
Schneider, Horizon Air senior vice president of customer services. “From
the first bite, we knew that DETOUR was the kind of bar that Horizon
fliers would love.”
DETOUR can be found at select 7-Eleven, Wal-Mart, Target, Rite Aid, GNC,
Vitamin World, Vitamin Shoppe, Trader Joe`s, and Bally`s Total Fitness
stores nationwide. Available in two sizes, the 80-gram bar is packed with

grams of protein.
