Health food rocks 

While the health gurus tout the benefits of eating soy, the folks at the Dixie Diners Club in Texas have been working on something much more important — a soy food that tastes like junk food. Soy Rocks! may not sound like a snack that can stand up to Twinkies and Doritos, but DDC promises that these chocolate-covered crunchy soy nuggets are delicious and nutritious. One serving packs a slim 102 calories and very little fat from that real velvety chocolate coating. But more importantly, those calories are well-spent, offering 45 milligrams of isoflavones, the stuff in soy that has all the health benefits. The snacks are free of dairy and animal products and cost about $2 for a two-serving packet. You can order them at www.dixieusa.com or call 800-233-3668 ext. 300. Norene Cashen pays attention here every other week. E-mail letters@metrotimes.com
