Detour Bar


Detour Bar established itself by introducing the first layered, Snickers-like, protein bar in the category. Building upon the pillars of amazing taste and whey protein, Detour quickly gained traction in top-tier club stores and grocery channels. To remain a market leader in an increasingly competitive category, Detour needed to launch new product lines, increase online sales, invigorate their social media presence, and position themselves for future growth.


Gilmour Craves helped Detour conduct a thorough brand audit of all consumer touchpoints, guided brand discovery sessions with the leadership team, and developed the resulting brand identity, guidelines, and related expressions. Ongoing projects include a top-down redesign of logotype, product category packaging systems, website, social media campaigns, and tradeshows.
