Usually, SOYJOY bars are all about the taste of fruit. The baked soy makes a great gluten-free base and complements each flavor well, but the fruit is almost always the centerpiece. The new dark chocolate cherry SOYJOY has a new centerpiece: dark chocolate.
At first, I was taken aback by the overpowering chocolaty taste. I’m usually more of a milk chocolate kind of guy, but I can enjoy dark chocolate in certain situations. A few bites in, and I realized this was one such situation. In fact, I think the bar would have suffered if they had used milk chocolate instead, as the cherries are sweet enough that too much sweetness from the chocolate would be overkill. The bar is very rich, but it still retains the light, slightly moist texture of the other SOYJOY bars. This keeps you from feeling like you just ate a brick of sugar, but still satisfies your chocolate cravings.
If you’re looking for a snack bar that’s rich with the flavor of dark chocolate but isn’t dense or overly sugary like many chocolate snack bars, the dark chocolate cherry SOYJOY is definitely worth a try.
