by | July 17, 2020

Vegetarian brand Sweet Earth Foods has launched a new vegan burger featuring a bacon filling.

The Awesome Bacon Burger patty is a blend of beef — made from yellow pea protein — and pieces of seitan-based bacon flavored with hickory smoke.

“The First-Ever Vegan Bacon Burger”

“We are so excited to announce the release of the Awesome Bacon Burger as the first-ever vegan bacon burger, proving eating plant-based can be just as delicious as it is nutritious,” said Jessica Vasish, vice president of Sweet Earth Foods.

“The combination of the Awesome Burger and our award-winning Benevolent Bacon brings together two of our fan-favorite products into one delicious option that is perfect for summer grilling.”

The burgers are on sale now at HEB stores in the US, with a nationwide rollout to other retailers coming soon.
