Sainsbury’s launches plant-based Smokey BBQ and Spicy Sriracha Chicken Style Bites, new from Squeaky Bean®

The nation’s favourite plant-based kitchen sidekick, Squeaky Bean, is launching its Chicken Style Bites into Sainsbury’s, to help combat cravings nationwide. Available in two varieties, Smokey BBQ and Spicy Sriracha, the Bites will give meat-free food lovers the opportunity to sink their teeth into moreish, punchy breadcrumbed snacks that are much more than just a chicken substitute.

The Smokey BBQ Chicken Style Bites offer a sweet grilled flavour made from oak smoked tomatoes and smoked paprika, which deliver that straight-off the barbeque taste sensation, while the Spicy Sriracha Bites pack a habanero chilli kick combined with creamy vegan mayo that will deliver a moment of joy. Made from seasoned wheat and pea protein, the tasty Bites offer a satisfying snacking solution, with a vegan recipe that doesn’t compromise on flavour.

Sarah Augustine, co-creator of Squeaky Bean, says: “Our new Chicken Style Bites are designed to deliver taste bud satisfaction for plant-based food lovers when they hit the fridge. Delicious hot and cold, the Chicken Style Bites are a convenient way to experience plant-based flavour – fast. By showing just how easy it is to tuck into tasty, we’re pushing people’s perceptions of vegan food.”

The new Squeaky Bean Chicken Style Bites can be eaten straight-from-the-pack or heated in the oven for eight minutes for a delicious snack or side. Ideal for packing into lunchboxes, picnic hampers and handbags, the Bites are a great on-the-go food option– as well as eaten as a side with salads, pizzas and pickles. The Squeaky Bean Chicken Style Bites will be launched into Sainsbury’s alongside the brand’s innovative Chargrilled Mini Fillets, which offer an extraordinarily realistic plant-based alternative to chicken with a moreish Cajun flavour.

Graham Barton, Buyer, Plant Based Meat at Sainsbury’s says: “Squeaky Bean’s Smokey BBQ and Spicy Sriracha Chicken Style Bites prove that vegan food doesn’t have to be difficult to make. By providing easy to prepare products, we’re making it easy for our customers to choose vegan products that meet their needs, even when dining outside or on-the-go.”

Both varieties of the Squeaky Bean Chicken Style Bites come in packs weighing 144g and have a Recommended Retail Price (RRP) of £2.50. They will be available in 232 Sainsbury’s stores throughout the UK and to order online via the website.
