SOYJOY Gluten-Free Dark Chocolate and Cherry Bar

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.

Nutrition-wise, it actually has less sugar and more protein than some other SOYJOY flavors. It is also low glycemic, low sodium and free of trans fats and overly processed ingredients like high fructose corn syrup. Oh, and it’s 100% gluten-free, of course. Each bar comes in at only 140 calories, but they’re packed with flavor so you’ll feel like you’ve eaten more than that (without the guilt).

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.

Hi Allie and welcome First off, I know 3 years was a long wait, but at 17 you've figured out celiac way before many people do. That should make a big impact on minimising its effects and helping you with the diet, so, bizarrely enough, congratulations! A lot of good advice has been brought together in this thread: Don't worry that your symptoms are bad now. As you follow the diet your body will begin healing itself and you're still very young so hopefully this will go really smoothly. Think in terms of the next 6 months rather than weeks however, recovery will likely take a little time. Eat as healthily as you can, lots of whole foods and try to avoid the gluten free processed substitutes as your digestive system needs all the help it can get at this moment. You may want to avoid dairy as well for now and think about reintroducing it later. This site has been really helpful to me and others. I hope you find it just as useful. Best of luck! ps, your increased reaction to gluten during the challenge phase was perfectly normal. Many find that reintroducing it much worse than the initial affects and take some time to get over the challenge. That's why you'll see lots of posts here urging folks to 'stay on gluten' till their testing is complete!

Hi! My daughter is 19 was diagnosed at age 16. It took about 12-18 month s for her to fully heal from the damage and feel "normal" again. Also because of the damage done she had reactions to dairy, so you may want to try no or minimum dairy until youre fully healed. Just a suggestion. Hope you start feeling well soon!

Hi yall! New to this blog, but really glad it exists because I have lots of questions. First off, I'm Allie! I'm 17 and newly diagnosed Celiac after about 3 years of searching for answers. I initially went gluten-free on the recommendation of a friend, I felt better in about a month and then my pediatric gastroenterologist had me do the gluten challenge, and my symptoms were the worst they have ever been, and ones I barely noticed before became very present. I did the biopsy and was diagnosed, it's been about 2 weeks and my symptoms are still pretty bad, although my diet has no known sources of gluten or cross contamination. Wondering if anyone has any input on healing post gluten challenge, any tips or how long it took for you would be quite helpful! Thanks

Might want to look into a keto diet, I have UC on top of celiacs and keto is working great Yeah I have major nerve and brain issues with gluten, gluten ataxia with nerve issues and brain issues. Seems to cause my body to attack my brain and nerve system. My brain stumbles fogs, and starts looping, the confusion causes me to become really irritable, I call it going Mr Hyde. Like my mind will start looping constantly on thoughts and not move driving me literally mad, or it used to. Now days it is primary the numbness anger but the gut issues and sometimes random motor loss limit me motionless to the floor now days for the duration of the major anger effects. Used to be a lot more mental then painful gut. I did a mental trauma post on it on while back where I came out about all my mental issues with gluten.

^^^^^^ good info, tips and tricks^^^^^^^^^ yes, crumbs will make you sick. also, breathing flour/pancake mix, etc that is in the air because eventually, you're going to swallow some.
