Soy Joy Banana Bar
I love samples. Can't help it. You give me something free and I'm all over it. I have more shampoo samples than I could use in months. But you send me free food samples and I'm in heaven because that means I don't necessarily have to waste my own money just to find out I don't like something.
I got a Banana Soy Joy bar sample. Totally forgot about it until it came in the other day. I decided to split it with my hubby while we waited for dinner the other night. I had no real expectation. We were both pleasantly surprised. It tasted like a good dense banana bread with raisins. I guess there is dried pineapple and dried coconut in it as well but those weren't prevalent flavors. We both thought that these would make the perfect bars for traveling as the shape lends itself to not being smooshed in your carry on bag...compact and sturdy. It's gluten free for those that might matter to and has a low GI. The nutritional info is 130 cals, Fat 6g, Sat Fat 3g, Sodium 50mg, Carbs 16g, Fiber 2g, Sugar12g and Protein 4g.
Would I buy these? Yes, I would! Now I'm a cheapo so I have no clue what they cost but we'll definitely seek them out before our next plane ride or who knows, maybe before!
