The country’s favorite plant-based kitchen sidekick, Squeaky Bean, is launching his chicken-style bites in Sainsbury’s, to help fight food cravings across the country. Available in two varieties, Smokey BBQ and Spicy Sriracha, the bites will give meatless food lovers the chance to bite into spicier and punchier breaded snacks that are more than just a chicken substitute.
Smokey BBQ Chicken Style Bites offer a sweet toasted flavor made from oak-smoked tomatoes and smoked paprika, which directly delivers the taste of barbecue flavor, while Spicy Sriracha Bites feature a habanero pepper combined with a creamy vegan mayonnaise that will offer a moment of joy. Made from seasoned wheat and pea protein, the savory bites offer a satisfying snack solution, with a vegan recipe that doesn’t compromise on flavor.
Sarah Augustine, co-creator of Squeaky Bean, says, “Our new chicken-style bites are designed to satisfy the taste buds of plant-based cooking enthusiasts when they enter the fridge. Delicious hot and cold, Chicken Bites are a convenient way to get a quick taste of plant flavors. By showing how easy it is to enjoy tasty food, we are pushing back people’s perceptions of vegan food. “
The new Squeaky Bean Chicken Style Bites can be eaten straight from the wrapper or heated in the oven for eight minutes for a delicious snack or side dish. Perfect for packing in lunch boxes, picnic baskets and purses, bites are a great on-the-go option, as well as a side dish with salads, pizzas and pickles. Squeaky Bean Chicken Style Bites will launch at Sainsbury’s alongside the brand’s innovative Mini Chargrilled Filets, which offer an extraordinarily realistic vegetable alternative to chicken with a more Cajun flavor.
Graham Barton, Buyer, Plant-Based Meat at Sainsbury’s, says: “Squeaky Bean’s smoky barbecue and Spicy Sriracha Chicken Bites prove that vegan food doesn’t have to be difficult to prepare. By offering products that are easy to prepare, we make it easy for our customers to choose vegan products that meet their needs, even when they dine out or on the go.
Both varieties of Squeaky Bean Chicken Style Bites come in packages weighing 144g and have a Recommended Retail Price (RRP) of £ 2.50. They will be available in 232 Sainsbury’s stores across the UK and to order online through the website.
