5 Reasons to Nom the New Field Roast Burger

By

A new era in the veggie burger world is dawning now that the Field Roast Burger has entered the culinary landscape.  Gone are the days of the dry, machine formed veggie hockey puck.  Here is a juicy, satisfying burger made with whole barley, fresh carrots, garlic, onions & celery. The best part? We have now made them available to grocery retailers as of July 1st, 2014!

[psssst! Our products are available for any retail store to order through their distributor. Ask your local store when they will be getting the burger or put in a request with them!]

Word-of-mouth began to grow as the Field Roast Burger expanded into sports stadiums and at food shows across the country.  The Field Roast Burger won the VegWorld award for “Best New Vegan Product” at Natural Products Expo West last March. It was also served at June’s Food & Wine Classic in Aspen. Most recently, The Field Roast Grain Meat Co. celebrated the grand opening of its new plant in South Seattle by grilling free burgers for the general public.

 

Here are 5 reasons you should [NomNomNom!] the new hand-formed burger:

 

1. Because each burger is unique.

We put love into making our products and pass along positive energy when they are formed by hand.

 

2. Because they are grill-friendly.

You can bring them along to the next BBQ!

 

3. Because each burger has 24 grams of protein.

Hello, amino acids!

 

4. Because people on Facebook say so:

“Just ate your new hand-formed burger…that was the best burger of my life.

Juicy and SO much flavor. Can’t go back to Boca or any of the other brands now.” -.Juliet V.

“That was the best vegan burger I’ve ever had in my entire life!!!

I can’t wait till these are available!! BEST BUGER EVER!” -Jessica H

“You’re burgers were the best things at Vegfest [Seattle]!

Can’t wait [until] they are in stores.” –Kyran S. 

 

5. Because it photographs well. Here’s proof:

We found a package of these a couple weeks ago at Whole Foods in Bend, OR, and they were amazing! We fried two of them up in a cast iron pan, and had the other two crumbled on a pizza for National Vegan Pizza Day. I hope these become more readily available in Bend. Keep up the great work!!!

Hi Julie! We JUST launched & shipped the burger, breakfast sausage and deli slices in Canada, so you should start to see them in stores - Ask your stores when they will have them! Wheat is an important ingredient for us, so no plan for gluten-free products.

Hi Marcia, we use wheat in all of our products, so they are not gluten free!

Sounds good, but where do I get them? I live in Kerrville, Texas. We have a Walmart and a grocery store called HEB. I have't seen it at either place, but I may not be looking in the right spot in the store. Let me know:) Thanks.

Hi Rainey, the burgers are sold at all kinds of stores. I looked up your zip code on our store locator and didn't see anything within 50 miles, but there may be a co-op or natural foods store near you that has picked up our products. I would contact HEB and ask them if they will carry them, since they are available to order from distributors. Also, we do have online retailers that will ship to you if you can't find them! Check them out here:http://fieldroast.com/where-to-buy/online-retailers/. I hope that helps! If you have more questions, send an email to info at field roast dot com :)
