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.

With so many gluten-free snack bars coming onto the market nowadays, it can be hard to find one that stands out, and really deserves a spot in your snack food reserves. SOYJOY makes great baked whole soy-based gluten-free bars, and their new cranberry flavor is one of their best yet. When trying to describe the new cranberry SOYJOY, my first instinct is to compare it to a Nutri-Grain bar, just lighter and with whole dried fruit instead of a jelly filling (and no gluten, of course). I'm not usually a huge cranberry fan, but in this context, the cranberries add a very satisfying tanginess that keeps the bar from being overwhelmingly sweet. The bar also has a pleasant texture: it's both light (not overly heavy or chewy like some snack bars) and slightly moist, which is surprising given that it's made from baked soy. You can't expect to replace breakfast with these, but they are free of trans fats, low glycemic, low sodium and have 4g of protein. The ingredients list is also short and easily understood, with whole soy and dried fruit and no high fructose corn syrup. The portion control is also good, coming in at only 140 calories per bar. If you're looking for a tasty, fruity gluten-free snack to tide you over between meals, these are definitely worth a try. For more information, visit their website.
