BATTLE CREEK, Mich., Aug. 27, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- To celebrate National Burger Day on Aug. 27, new Incogmeato™ by MorningStar Farms® is issuing a simple challenge to flexitarian eaters in Dallas and Denver, and Twitter users nationwide – give Incogmeato's™ plant-based burger just one bite.
Sixty percent of Americans want to eat more plant-based2 but hesitate due to fears it won't taste as good as meat. Incogmeato™ is here to reassure flexitarians that its line of plant-based burgers, brats, sausage and chik'n nuggets look, cook and taste just like the real thing. To make overcoming first bite fears easy, Incogmeato™ is launching a national giveaway on Twitter and partnering with Postmates to bring bite-sized samples right to peoples' doors.
In-store sampling is all but gone, making it difficult for people to try before they buy. To solve this, Incogmeato™ is partnering exclusively with Postmates, a leader in enabling anyone to get nearly anything on-demand, to make taking that first bite easy by bringing free one-bite burgers straight to the doors of Dallas and Denver residents. Which leaves just one question, what are you waiting for Dallas and Denver? Afraid you might like it?
"Incogmeato™ is an exciting new plant-based brand that looks, cooks and tastes just like meat and is in stores now," said Sara Young, General Manager, Plant-Based Proteins at Kellogg Company. "We know people are curious about plant-based but may be nervous to try it for the first time, so we're partnering with Postmates to make overcoming those first bite fears easy with delicious bite-sized samples that are delivered right to their front doors for free."
For one day only on Aug. 27, Denver and Dallas residents within the on-demand delivery radius can get a bite-sized and fully cooked and dressed Incogmeato™ Burger brought right to their door by Postmates. To take up Incogmeato™ on their challenge, hungry diners can visit Postmates.com or download Postmates on iOS or Android and find the Incogmeato™ "store" and order their free slider. One free sample per order will be available while supplies last starting at 11 a.m. and includes free delivery. In addition to the meaty first bite of Incogmeato™, residents will also receive a coupon to purchase Incogmeato™ Burger Patties at local retailers, including Walmart, Kroger, Safeway and Albertson's.
"We are thrilled to partner with Incogmeato™ and take food sampling to the next level by delivering free sliders to customers' doors," said Dylan Abruscato, Senior Director of Brand Strategy at Postmates.
For those outside of Denver and Dallas who also want to try their first bite, Incogmeato™ is hosting a one-day only product giveaway on Twitter, so that plant-based doubters nationwide can take their first bite of delicious Incogmeato™ Burgers.
