Louisville Vegan Jerky Co. created just 15,000 bags of its limited-edition meat-free jerky in a Sweet & Sour Pineapple flavor. As such, each bag is labeled with a number so that fans know they have gotten their hands on an ultra-exclusive snack.
The small-batch plant-based jerky is made with a base of textured whole bean soy that is enhanced with the flavors of 100% natural pineapple juice, all-natural ketchup, plus onion and garlic powder. For a unique meal enhancement, Louisville Vegan Jerky Co. suggests "adding Pineapple Sweet & Sour to your Chinese take-out for an easy way to give noodles some kick."
A number of plant-powered snack brands are reclaiming the word "jerky" by creating meatless dried snacks with everything from eggplants, bananas and watermelon to mushrooms and coconut.
