Sweet Earth Foods, a plant-based food innovator, announced the release of its Awesome Bacon Burger. The new burger extends the plant-based food makers' portfolio as approximately 40% of Americans are trying to eat more plant-based foods (Nielsen).
The Sweet Earth® Awesome Bacon Burger is a smoky plant-based burger infused with vegan bacon bits. Made of textured pea protein, this plant-based burger contains 26g of protein per serving (27% DV) and is non-GMO project certified. The burger will be hitting shelves of HEB starting this week with nationwide distribution increasing over the coming weeks.
Expanding the brand's meat-free grilling options beyond its Awesome Burger and Mindful Chik'n, the Awesome Bacon Burger follows the announcement of two Sweet Earth Sausages – the Green Chile Chedd'r and Chik'n Apple – that are rolling available on retailer shelves nationwide.
Green Chile Chedd'r Sausage is a good source of protein (13g, 19% DV) and incorporates vegan chedd'r, habanero peppers, yellow peppers, and cilantro. The plant-based flavors of green chiles, chedd'r and sausage all come together in this plump and juicy sausage.
Chik'n Apple Sausage is a good source of protein (15g, 19% DV) and features apples, green onion, and spices. A balance of plant-based chik'n, apple, onion, and seasoning. Plump, juicy, ready for the skillet or the grill – in recipes or on a bun. Available at retailers including HEB and Save Mart.
