Where to Buy: Visit the Kinda Bacon website for online store and stockists
Dope Australian products are where it’s at. When you go to the US and see the crazy amount of wicked vegan products on sale (without the absurd price markup they incur when they get to us) can be a little disheartening, so I was super stoked when I heard about Kinda Bacon.
A few years ago, if you told me you could have made bacon-y tasting chips out of coconut, I would have slapped you across the face and called you a liar. The guys at Kinda Bacon have truly nailed the smokey, salty nature of those crispy bacon bits you used to sprinkle on your salads and soups to give it that extra oomph. Plus they’re gluten free so you gleegan dudes can get stuck in as well.
I have made my own coconut bacon in the past and I must say, it’s pretty good but Kinda Bacon takes the crisp-factor and the smokiness to the next level that I don’t think I quite achieved at home. Plus you’ve got it there, ready to go, in a sealed up bag whenever you need it.
The only negative I can think of is that it’s a little on the pricey side but if you’re only sprinkling it on top of dishes and cupcakes this bag will last you quite a while. If you’re going to go (mock) H.A.M and demolish the packet as a snack (which is possible as it’s so delicious), you may want to start a little savings account to support your habit.
From now on, I’m going to be keeping a packet of Kinda Bacon in my pantry so that next time I need to take a dish to the next level of tastiness, I’m ready.
As a special treat for our Australian Like a Vegan readers, Kinda Bacon are offering a 15% discount when you buy through their online store! Just enter the codeword: vegan15 at the checkout. Gnarly!
