Allow us to (re)introduce you to our flagship product, MyBacon! You may recognize it from the shelves of your local markets (we’re in 100+ stores in NYC!), but in case we haven’t met, MyBacon is a delicious, plant-based bacon alternative made from mycelium—the vegetative root structure of mushrooms—farm-grown by us in Upstate NY. MyBacon truly tastes, smells, and crunches like traditional bacon. Quotes from last month’s demos include: “Love that the ingredients are clean and straight forward, nothing processed! “WHAAAAT??!! That’s just mushrooms???!” I’m not vegan and I still love it. One of the greatest plant based alternatives out there.” We know you’ll love it too!
