Sweet Earth Foods will begin shipping the new Awesome Burger 2.0 nationwide, later this year. The burgers, which are made from hemp, fava beans, and pea protein, will be available for purchase nationally at locations including Target, Whole Foods, H-E-B, Sprouts, and Amazon Fresh.
“Our relentless approach to innovation allows us to offer consumers tasty, nutrient-diverse protein options they can feel good about incorporating into their diets,” said Sara Wheeler, Sweet Earth Foods general manager. “With more people eager to try delicious plant-based options, we’re excited to bring an even greater variety of favorites to consumers’ backyards and kitchens this summer.”
“The Sweet Earth Awesome Burger saw incredible success at its launch in 2019, but at Sweet Earth Foods we’re constantly asking ourselves and our customers how we can make our plant-based proteins tastier, more craveable and more like traditional animal-based proteins” said Ryan Riddle, senior product development specialist with Nestlé and Sweet Earth. “Over the last year we have continued our product development, listened to consumer feedback, and made the Awesome Burger 2.0 even juicier with a beefier flavor and meatier texture.”
