SoyJoy Bars first got reviewed in May 2007, and it got a lowly 2 out of 5. The 3 flavors covered then were Apple, Berry, and Mango Coconut. Since then SoyJoy has come out with many more flavors and has become a prevalent item on shelves. In light of its seeming popularity, I decided to revisit the SoyJoy bars and try a dessert flavor instead. Two of my favorite flavors or chocolate and peanuts, so I figured if anything would win me over, it would be this combination in the SoyJoy Peanut Chocolate Chip Bar.
The bar is about 3.5 inches in length and about the circumference of my middle finger. It may be lower in calories than other bars, but that's because it's small. The smell of the bar is a little peculiar, like something overly sweet, although there are no artificial colors, flavors, or hydrogenated oils. The taste of the bar was disappointing. Overly dry with no real taste of chocolate or peanuts. The most prevalent taste for me was the real raisin chunks in the bar. Oh SoyJoy, I do not know how you're still in business because your bars (for lack of a better word) suck ! I did not feel like I had a satisfying snack.
Each 30 gram SoyJoy Peanut Chocolate Chip Bar provides 140 calories, 9% of the daily value for total fat, 12% of the DV for saturated fat, 5 grams of protein, 12 grams of sugar and 3 grams of fiber (12% of the DV).
SoyJoy Bars are gluten free and contain no artificial colors, flavor or hydrogenated oils (check out the ingredients list at SoyJoy.com). These bars are available for as low as $7.99 for 12 bars on Amazon.com, but I would not buy these again. If there are any SoyJoy lovers out there (who don't work for SoyJoy and are thus paid to say you like them) - please step forward and tell us what flavor to try next!
