Plant-Based “Awesome” Bacon Burger Unveiled By Sweet Earth Foods

Awesome Burger

Sweet Earth Foods, a growing plant-based food innovator,  announced the release of its Awesome Bacon Burger, a first-of-its-kind in the plant-based category.

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 the week of July 13 with nationwide distribution increasing over the coming weeks.

According to Vice President of Sweet Earth Foods, Jessica Vasisht, “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.” 

Expanding the brand’s delicious, meat-free grilling options beyond its Awesome Burger and Mindful Chik’n, the Awesome Bacon Burger follows the announcement of two tasty Sweet Earth Sausages – the Green Chile Chedd’r and Chik’n Apple – that are now 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. Available at retailers including Whole Foods Market and Giant Food.
  • Chik’n Apple Sausage is a good source of protein (15g, 19% DV) and features apples, green onion, and spices. A perfect 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.

The newest products follow Sweet Earth Foods’ recent launch of eight new burritos and entrée bowls in June. More information on products and resources for plant-based grilling can be found at
