SOYJOY - New and Improved - and Second Chances Contest

Who doesn't appreciate second chances?

In the spirit of second chances, SOYJOY is hosting the Second Chances Contest. You can enter to win one of three $1,000 prizes by briefly telling your personal story about a time you did not make the best first impression but--with a second chance--turned it into a joyous ending!  Between now and October 3, just submit a 30-second video or 100-word story at SOYJOY's Facebook page.

Why the second-chances theme?  Well, in response to customer feedback, SOYJOY is launching their new and improved bars this month with a lighter, moister texture and naturally enhanced fruit flavor.  The bars still have the same natural, minimally processed ingredients--such as ground whole soybeans and real fruit--and contain no trans fat or hydrogenated oils.   They just taste better!

I've heard a lot about the health benefits of soy, especially for women.  Up until now, I hadn't found a food source of soy that was tasty and also fit into my lifestyle.  I'd even tried SOYJOY bars in the past, and I can tell you that I like the new bars much better!

Thanks to Mom Central, I had a chance to try three flavors:  Strawberry, Banana, and Blueberry.   I liked all of them, but my favorite--hands down--is Blueberry.  In addition to ground whole soybeans (the first ingredient), it contains raisins, dried coconut, dried pineapple, dried wild blueberries, white chocolate chips, and dried cranberries.  Yum.  It also has only 140 calories and the kind of sodium/potassium ratio (45 mg to 220 mg) that my doctor encourages me to seek.

You can find SOYJOY in the nutrition bar aisle of fine grocery, drug, mass merchandise, health, natural, food and convenience stores. Find a local retailer and all product details on

Disclosure:  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.
