As a person who is lactose intolerant, I’ve always got my eye out for soy products. However, soy has a of great nutritional value for the rest of you: rich in protein, fiber, antioxidants, and B vitamins. Keeping that in mind, SOYJOY is a fruit bar that is made with natural, minimally processed ingredients, such as ground whole soybeans and real fruit, and contain no trans fat or hydrogenated oils. They are launching their new and improved bars this month with a lighter, moister texture and naturally enhanced fruit flavor. They have also added two new flavors too. Banana and blueberry have a taste and aroma reminiscent of freshly baked banana nut or blueberry muffins. However, I do have to admit that I am still a fan of the strawberry ones. Strawberries happen to be my favorite food, so it is a tad hard to beat that out.
SOYJOY is also holding a great contest called “Second Chances”. Visitors to their Facebook page can enter to win one of three $1,000 prizes by briefly telling their own personal story about a time they did not make the best first impression but, with a second chance, turned it into a joyous ending. How cool is that?
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.
