It’s no secret that I am a fan of snack bars. When I was contacted by SOYJOY earlier this summer to try their bars at first I was hesistant. I tried them a few years ago and wasn’t a big fan. I saw that the recipe was reformulated and new flavors were created so I decided to give them a try. As it turns out, I didn’t even recognize the bar!
The outside has a noticeable golden glow making it look like it was freshly baked! The dried fruit was moist, chewy in a good way and tasted surprisingly really good. My favorite flavor was the Mango, which of course I ate before I could take a picture. The packaging is slightly deceptive in that the bar is noticeably smaller but the taste makes up for it.
The bars are all 130-140 calories with at least 4 g of protein. The ingredients are simple and you’ve heard of all of them. One shocking ingredient on the label you don’t often see was butter! You can actually taste a little bit of the buttery goodness in a way, so no this is not vegan but it is gluten-free. I try to only eat soy is NOT genetically modified. SOYJOY only uses non GMO whole soy beans which means unlike tofu and soy milk it also retains it’s natural fiber. Other ingredients include raisins, eggs, sugar, dried coconut, maltodectrin (natural fiber source), Rice flour, Salt, Natural Flavors.
Other SOYJOY flavors include pineapple, strawberry, blueberry and banana. In honor of the last day of summer, I’m giving away a summer to remember gift pack from SOYJOY including each of the 7 flavors, a recipe card with a refreshing fruit smoothie recipe, SOYJOY beach towel, a pair of SOYJOY sunglasses and SOYJOY cooler.
