Increased interests in healthy plant-based eating has created tons of opportunity for vegan fruit jerky products to be reinvented as flavorful alternatives to meat. Watermelon Road is one company that's setting itself apart by producing a Watermelon Lemonade-flavored fruit jerky snack. Alongside this fun flavor, the brand also offers Smoky Bacon Eggplant and Pineapple Mojito varieties that are packaged in pouches for effortless on-the-go snacking.

Watermelon can now be found as the main ingredient in everything from luxury face creams to ultra-hydrating beverages. Although many products are made using just the melon's juicy pink flesh, there are plenty of other examples where the rind and seeds are also integrated for their benefits.

Like Watermelon Road, a number of companies are developing plant-based jerky products made with everything from bananas and coconuts to mushrooms.
