Four NEW Flavors of Coconut Bacon!
Since day one, people have asked us for more flavors of Coconut Bacon... we've heard it all! From spicy, sweet, to international fusion themes, one thing was clear to us: PEOPLE WANTED MORE BACON!
So, we went into the kitchen and got to testing new flavor combinations. Kyle adds hot sauce to everything, so we NEEDED a spicier bacon, Andrea's a baker and wanted a sweet tooth fix. We eat pizza & watch Shark Tank every Friday night, so something with fennel was always on our minds. Finally, we wanted to make it easier for EVERYONE to enjoy bacon, even straight from the bag, so we knew we wanted something with less salt and no soy.
DRUM ROLL, PLEASE! Our new flavors:
Soy Free Reduced Sodium - Made with organic coconut aminos instead of tamari, this soy free version offers the same great bacon flavor as our original with only a third of the sodium content, so you can feel great about snacking on it right out of the bag!
Chipotle BBQ - The addition of ground chipotle powder and organic ketchup brings a Southwestern kick to this flavor and makes it a perfect topper for tacos, salads or a BBQ pizza.
Apple Fennel - Pretty much a hybrid of sausage and bacon... I mean, you can't get much better than that, right? AMAZING on pizzas and pasta, this seemed to be the crowd favorite at Expo West, where we debuted samples of the new flavors a little over a month ago.
Candied - Our fans have been using our Original Coconut Bacon in sweet concoctions for over a year now, and this flavor is designed to really kick that up a notch. Brown sugar candied exterior, chewy bacon inside. Holds up in batters and ice cream, and is even really great on a spinach salad. Not a bad dessert straight from the bag either!
What We Need
The amount we are raising will cover the exact amount needed for 'plates' to print our bags. All initial orders of a bag design require a one time plate fee, and we're going to need 23 plates to be made for these bags. Once the bags are printed, we'll be able to go into full production and launch these new flavors!
What You Get
- $25 will get you a pack of EACH new flavor, before it hits stores! An IndieGogo campaign paid for our FIRST ever batch of Coconut Bacon a year ago, and we're going to make sure that our supporters get the new flavors in their hands first! Seriously, the new flavors won't even be up on our own webstore for months. Only a few select retailers and online stores will be stocking the new flavors for the first month or two, so this may be your only chance to try the new flavors any time soon!
$50 will get you a pack of EACH new flavor and an Eat More (Coconut) Bacon t-shirt (pictured below).
- $200 will get you a YEAR'S SUPPLY of Coconut Bacon. We'll send you 4 bags a month, you get to choose which flavors, for 12 months.
We debuted our new flavors at Expo West, the largest natural foods tradeshow. We wanted people to taste the flavors and get feedback. Here's some blog posts, pictures, and videos of what people are saying about the new flavors!
