List #95: My Impression of SOYJOY

I got a free sample of SOYJOY in the mail the other day. I send away for a lot of free samples of products thanks to this site. I thought it would be fun to share my impressions of the Soy Joy as I ate it.

“Natural Flavor with other natural flavors”

My impressions, In Order:

1. It smells good. Like fruit. Apples. Like an apple fruit-roll-up. Is there such a thing?

2. It doesn’t look like food. It looks like a block of wood with raisins in it.

3. It’s pretty small. i wonder how much these cost?

4. [Take a bite.] Hmm…chewy. Not very strong flavor.

5. [Another bite.] Dense. I guess that makes up for the small size.

6. Not bad. I don’t really care for the square shape
