CocoBacon® Organic Coconut Bacon - Nice FLAVORFUL Vegan Snack!

Well...lookie here...

It's CocoBacon® Organic Coconut Bacon!

I have to post this today or else I will be plum-out of this flavored coconut snack and wouldn't be able to type as I munch!

Yes...it's true...this is pretty darn YUMMY but the best part(s) are that it's VEGAN, it's Gluten Free, it's a healthy fat, it's USDA Organic, and it's tasty!

A friend of mine - who is a real bacon person - and not a vegan person in the least - tried this and right away said...'that doesn't taste like bacon at all'.  Well, as a vegan I don't really WANT it to taste EXACTLY like bacon, ya know?  I really think people have to try things with an open mind.  I think this person thought it was supposed to be a meat double or 'fake' meat alternative and that is simply NOT the case.  It's a flavored snack and it's a mighty fine one.  The ironic thing is...this same person came back a half hour later and asked me if they could have more.  So...case and point...non-vegans like the flavor, too!

As for me - someone who was jumping into this snack tasting - by looking at it - as a flavored coconut sliver of a munchie - I was pleased, as well!  WHY?  Well, it's flavor is a JOY.  Check out these simple yet tasty ingredients...

 That's IT.  And I like that!  The fewer the ingredients the better!  Nothing fake!  The combination of sweet with a bit of salt with savory and shake of spices and smoke...very nice!

Over time I ate this by the handful or two at a time.  The bag lasted me a while but it's coming to an end today.  The crunch makes this snack very satisfying, too!  I've used a handful on salads, too, instead of tortillas.  YUM!

Regardless of what you are going to do with these - a snack - a condiment or accompaniment - or otherwise the important thing is - do you like the flavor and is a good for you - the answer - for both - were YES.  That's why I LOVE these lil guys!  They have other flavors, too, and I intend to share them with you down the road!  In the meantime...check this company out below...

    1. P.S.:
      I've checked out Neil Diamond's Melody Road album - stunning! He sounds exactly like he did in the I am..I said, Song Sang Blue days. Love it! My favourite is probably "Do I wanna be yours". Beautiful!

    2. It was quite tasty, too! Nice flavor combo!

      RE: Neil Diamond...He did Something Blue on The Tonight Show last week! Classic Diamond :) Yes...I agree...his voice is still as strong as it was 30 or 40 years ago!!! What a song writer, eh!?

  2. Yum! I make my own and I put it in salads, soups, you name it. I also eat it all by itself. Coconut bacon is the best!

  6. Hi Jennifer,
    A non-vegan friend of mine mentioned recently that she was crazy about coconut bacon but I had never tried it so I am delighted that you shared this organic treat with us at the Healthy, Happy, Green and Natural Party Blog Hop.

  7. I like the coconut bacon chips I found recently, but I love how few ingredients this one has. Where did you get them? Whole Foods?
