Soy Joy

Years ago a new product called SoyJoy hit the market. It was a bar made of soy and all natural stuff. It was healthy and was supposed to taste good. It was healthy...
Fast forward to last week.  Soy Joy asked if we would try their product again. You know, give it a second chance. I want a second chance sometimes, so I was more than happy to do that! Besides, I'm always looking for an easy snack for Mr and the kids.
They said that the new SOYJOY nutritional bar is more delicately baked to be fruitier, moister and better than before. I think they are right!
I received 3 bars - a banana, a strawberry, and a blueberry.
When I opened each package, the smell was divine! The banana bar smells JUST LIKE banana bread. The blueberry smelled like blueberry muffins.
We tried them.
My Mr. LOVES them. He went out and bought some to keep in his desk at work. The carb count isn't very high and the ingredients are such that he can eat this without it affecting his blood sugar. This is a very good thing for someone who needs to eat often.  My Mr. is not a big banana person, but he really  liked the banana flavor. His favorite, though, is the blueberry.  He likes the fact that they are a soft bar -- more cookie like than granola like. He can swill one down between meetings and be content. The best thing is that they are made with all natural ingredients -- no junk. 
Grandpa liked them very much. He likes everything, so this was no surprise. He did say that he liked the strawberry the best.
Gram and I thought they were okay. I think I expected them to be more like banana bread and  "sweeter" than they were.  They tasted good, but the consistency is not what I expected. They are definitely better than they were the first time I tried them years ago... 
So - if you are looking for an afternoon snack and you want to stay away from the sweet stuff, SoyJoy just might be what you are looking for. 
Oh and you can win $1000, too!!

“I wrote this review while participating in a blog campaign by Mom Central on behalf of SOYJOY and received samples of their nutritional bars to facilitate my candid review. Mom Central also sent me a gift card to thank me for taking the time to participate.”
