Soy-Yer Dough

Soy-Yer Dough is a Bloomfield, IN company that manufactures a gluten-free, non-toxic, scented version of Play-Doh-like modeling clay for children with gluten intolerance or Celiac disease. The company also offers soy-free options for children with soy allergies.

Bloomfield native Sawyer Sparks, the founder of Soy-Yer Dough, was featured on the reality TV show Shark Tank last September. In the episode, the typically tight-fisted "angel investors" offered Sawyer $300,000 for 40% ownership of the burgeoning company. Sawyer has so far refused to sell, but has since proven that the investors' vote of confidence was well deserved.

You can purchase Soy-yer Dough from the website Containers of dough cost $2.00 each and come in scents of raspberry, strawberry, blueberry, watermelon, cherry and grape. You can also read a feature on the company in the local Herald Times.
