12 Days Give Away – Day 3

The Missus loves the crowd funding concept.  If you’ve had a vegan start up on Etsy, IndieGoGo or Kickstarter chances are she’s pledged some dinero to the cause. We’ve found some really good products this way, including one of last year’s gifts, a vegan Alfredo Sauce from Two Vegan Ladies.

This year’s start up is Phoney Baloney from Tustin, CA.   PB is the world’s first and only manufacturer of vegan, gluten free Coconut Bacon.

Stef found PB on on IndieGoGo and what a find it was!  When the initial shipment arrived we plowed through a bag within minutes.  Even the little vegan who isn’t thrilled with most things coconut was hooked.  Since then we’ve found many uses for including this Elvis Cake.  Personally I love making BLTs with it.

Today we a have bags of the Coconut Bacon plus a package of PB Rations, a tofu scramble seasoning mix.

Let’s be clear this isn’t a ‘contest’.  We’re giving away gifts to our friends.  However the limit quantities available gifts means we need to make some choices.   If you want to receive a gift, please leave a comment on the Don’t Fear the Vegan blog post for that day.  Commenting on Facebook doesn’t count.  Around midnight Pacific time the day after a post, a  recipient will be randomly chosen from the comments section.  We will reveal the gift recipients in individual posts the following day in a new post, a reply in the comments and a fair attempt at emailing.  The giftee will have 48 hours to contact us from the time of post, otherwise we will choose another lucky reader will be chosen who then has 48 hours to get back to us, and so on…. We have learned from past give aways that it is sometimes very difficult to get a hold of folks.  Lastly we can only afford to ship within the United States.  Sorry the rest of the world.

    Oh boy, ever since your original post on the coconut bacon I’ve been intrigued, but haven’t been able to buy it to try it…then again, if I end up liking it, I may be very sad if I can’t find it in a store. At last check it was only online. 😦

    I’ve never heard of coconut bacon… I need to investigate this.. I’m intrigued! (and gluten-free!)

  3. Phoney Baloney’s is awesome! I know a person can make coconut bacon from scratch, but they do it so perfectly, it’s hard not to choose them. Plus, it’s all conveniently packaged and ready to go. I love it on salads best of all.

  4. Oh gosh! does this mean there are only two additional entrants so far? I’m surprised because this stuff looks AMAZING! I’ve seen variations on raw food websites, but something tells me I wouldn’t be able to pull off anything as good as what I can imagine are in the bags pictured above, haha! I’d LOVE to try it =-) =-) Om nom nom!! =-)
    Aaaaaaaaaaaaaand, the fact that I’m commenting to enter is a pretty big deal since I don’t normally do this sorta thing 😉 *haha!*

  5. Meagan says:

    I’ve been dying to try this! It looks awesome!

  6. Shannon says:

    I love the new packaging! It’s just the designer in me I guess. I tried this stuff a while back and it really didn’t last long in my kitchen. I put this stuff on nearly everything I could think of!

  7. Ron says:

    I just bought a bag from the co-op a couple days ago. Delish!

  8. Bitt says:

    Would love to try this!

  9. Suzy says:

    This looks so good. I hope to try it.

  10. Janel M. says:

    I’ve heard great things about PB–never tried it. I’m tempted to buy some online.

  11. Holly Newton says:

    This company used to have a sandwich shop in Irvine, CA. It was on my list to head north to visit, however I did not make it and alas they had to close. The bacon has been on my “to get” list for a while now.

  12. Jannifer says:

    I have been wanting to try this since I saw it online somewhere, or maybe it was in VegNews magazine.

  13. Rusty M says:

    Oooooh I would love to try these. My sister will eat vegan when I cook but she’s a big ole carnivore. These would totally convince her to switch. Thanks.

  14. Laura says:

    I’ve been wanting to try this forever! Just what I need for breakfast (and every meal)!

  15. Michelle says:

    I want to try this. I’ve heard about it, but I’ve never used it.

  16. em says:

    Ohh, this looks great! I saw a recipe for Elvis Pie from Bittersweet and this would work really well for the bacon component.

  17. aimeed28 says:

    I have been dying to try this stuff, it looks incredible.

  18. Terri Cole says:

    Oh my goodness! I really want to try this! Thanks for the chance!

  19. Sara Petrosky says:

    What a great way to show my non vegan friends that Vegans have a sense of humor and are inventive!
